This café is all things chic and friendly. How friendly? Even dogs are welcome inside and owners get assistance in controlling their pets and avoid them disturbing other costumers. Also a furniture store (by Casa Pagoda), it is no wonder that the café has that character: every piece is vintage, artsy, and unique. There is even a soon-to-be opened showroom on top of the building, so expect to view some incredible paintings here soon.
Eat: The all-day-breakfast is a good blend of healthy and comfort food. The idea came from an American-born Thai-Japanese partner who understands what gourmet eaters’ want: delicious food that pleases both the eyes and the palate. The burrito wrap is stuffed with healthy ingredients while retaining the fast-food appeal of bacon, eggs, and cheese; and served with a fresh tomato salsa that helps start the day right. Burger is a good choice as well.
Drink: One of Luka’s partners handles the importation of Tea Atelier, which is the café’s main tea product, and noted for its wide range of flavors and different brewing styles. Tea Atelier blends its own tea, and a popular brew is the cold tea, which is made unheated and left to sit for over eight hours to reach the right amount of strength. We recommend the White Flower Tea, which can only be found here! Their coffee — local coffee is from Ceresia and imported coffee is from Portugal and Brazil — is also a must-order!
Visit: Open daily, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. -7 p.m. during weekends (Thanon Pan Road, Sathorn, 02 637 8558)
