#Bangcock Day 4: Quick coffee at Ceresia… and going back home

I will never let myself not try Bangkok’s local coffee shops so on our last day — I went out a couple of stations away from Baiyoke for an early breakfast and set off to find at least one specialty coffee shop.

A couple of blocks away from BTS Phrom Phong is a quiet neighborhood where Ceresia Coffee Roasters is nestled in, along 33/1 Sukhumvit Road. You would need to go to the alley to see it.Β If you go here before 10am, it will most probably be the only cafe open in the area.

It’s almost Christmas when we went to Bangkok, so there were Christmas packages on display as well. Nevertheless, I liked the minimalist aesthetic the store has. It might feel a bit stiff, but the owners, who also prepares your coffee, are so friendly. I’m so bad with names but the store is owned by a Peruvian lady and a Thai guy. I enjoyed talking to them about how they’re sourcing their coffee — pretty awesome stuff! I also found a magazine (not in the photos) featuring Chiang Mai Design Week and how the emerging Thai cityΒ has a very laid back yet still very urban culture – and I am excited to go one day! Plus there are interesting cafes to try as well… Bangkok, I love you, but I hafta see Chiang Mai!

Took the train and had to drop postcards at the post office… I think it was in Ratchathewi. Then I saw a hawker place – where I ate Pad Thai of course! One last hurrah. I’d miss this city of sumptuous street food and beautiful finds.

He likes to believe that his name is so unique he feels confident to ask you to search his name instead of giving his social media handles.

  1. Anything local, I also try to embrace whenever I’m visiting a new place. I also love eating from the hawkers especially Pad Thai and their papaya salad (Som Tum).

    If you return, remember my favorite thai expression “Lot Noi Dai Mai” (if you don’t know already), it means “tawad or pahingi ng discount pls”.

    1. Hahaha, we have some awesome cafes here in Manila, but there is something really exhilarating when you go out for coffee in other countries, don’t you think?

    1. Hey Ronnie, that’s an internal joke – because we were there to see the sex shows for a friend’s birthday celebration. I thought it’d make a naughty series title hehehe

Tell me what you think!
