Bangkok Foodie: The Mandarin Oriental Shop, Siam Paragon

I think there is no other place I like to have my coffee in Siam Paragon than the Mandarin Oriental Shop. Part of the luxury hotel franchise, this little café is as elegant and refined as its name supposes, but in a more relaxed and easy-going atmosphere.


A little history
With a refined atmosphere rich in gourmet history, the Mandarin Oriental Shop continues The Oriental’s much-loved tradition of gastronomic creativity, presenting a wonderful selection of patisseries, viennoiserie, cakes and chocolates.
Under the innovative leadership of Executive Pastry Chef, Claus Olsen, The Mandarin Oriental Shop offers a range of mouth-watering homemade delicacies including breads, pastries, macarons and seasonal favourites including exquisite hampers and mooncakes.
With an array of delicate flavours and sublime textures on offer, our wonderful delights are true taste sensations. Visit one of our Mandarin Oriental shops located at Siam Paragon, Central Chidlom, The Emporium, Gaysorn and the lobby counter at Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok, to taste the delicacies on offer.


How does it look like?
I love the charming atmosphere of this classic french café and its marble and golden accents. I really like their cake display and their see-through patisserie atelier. Too bad there aren’t enough seats.


How do they treat you?
The service is simply exquisite and the barista skilled.


How is the food?
As for the sweet treats, they are wonderful. The Top cake, a crunchy and nutty dessert is delicious (picture above). Their coffee nougat pastry is also plate-licking good.


I also love their macarons, their Elvis Prestly (peanut better and jelly) is to die for.

Their coffee is so much better than in any coffee shop branch I have been to, and for the same price (with a little bonus treat).


Hot latte …

... or cold but always with a little biscuit or pastry free of charge

How much?
Not more expensive than Starbucks and for a much better quality.

Definitely one of my favorite cafes in Bangkok. The best place to impress and relax.
