if you haven’t had enough of minimalistic design that happen to be the reoccuring theme of oh so fashionable cafes in bangkok yet, you’ve landed at the right page. these two i’m about to mention is in it’s indomitable position reppin’ ultimate sophistication, simplicity and minimalist design that we all can’t seem to get enough of. brick walls and rustic interior is so yesterday. it’s now go white or go home.
located in the same soi as the famous night food stalls in sukhumvit 38, this small yet characteristic cafe is probably one of the most talked about (and instagrammed) lately and i’m not surprised. from black croissant to all white minimalist interior and friendly group of coffee-passionate friends who owned the place – i know if i lived a little closer to this place it would be my go to caffeine source every morning.
located between ekamai 26 and 28 next to where king kong buffet is at – kaizen is another most talked about hipster cafe in town. from nitro cold brew coffee to strange looking brewing machine that reminds me of my chemistry class back in high school (anyone know how this thing work?) it definitely adds spark of freshness among the typical cafe scene in the neighborhood. although ekamai is one of the places i try my best to avoid cos of its infamous traffic but i don’t think i would mind a little extended travel time for a decent cup of jo at this place.
