this place was recommended by a good friend of ours so we had our hopes up high. surely it’s not as condensed as it is in bangkok but cafe scene in pattaya is definitely starting to grow. for the past hundredth times i visited pattaya, i never came across a decent cafe. none. zero. or maybe i wasn’t looking for it… but this trip was different. starting from tree tales. it felt like being in a secret garden where you’re lured by the beauty encompassing the area that you just walk mindlessly observing your surrounding in awe. and clicking hundreds of photos along the way, of course. i had to control my strong desire to steal their ceramic table and chair and left only with happy tummy.
coffee. people watching. terrace. breeze. sound of newspaper pages turning. early morning. strangers. smell of freshly baked bread. friends. lovers. dogs.
i don’t know about you but just typing up these words put a smile on my face. for me, this is how i would want to start every morning for the rest of my life. maybe it was the peak in the happy hormones due to the good weather, but it was as if all my (sort-of-negative) perceptions about pattaya was turned upside down. despite being in the bustling district of pattaya it doesn’t fail to deliver a cozy-homely ambiance that is nothing short of peace, calmness and tranquility. this oldie but a goodie quaint little french inspired cafe is definitely recommended if you’re in the hood!
now that’s the end to my new year’s trip series. hope you enjoyed it, found it somewhat helpful when planning your trip down to pattaya and last but not least i wish everyone a delicious year ahead!
