Casa Lapin x26, Bangkok

Sometimes it’s good to know what to expect before you even arrive at your destination.

Such was the case with Casa Lapin x26, the fourth branch of the Bangkok-based café company that we’ve visited in recent years. (And because we enjoy staying in the Phrom Phong neighbourhood, this is the branch we tend to return to time and again.)

With coffee beans sourced from Thai roasters such as Pacamara, Roots and Brave Roasters, the quality of our cuppas are always consistent. The joy is in discovering what else they have to offer here.

This could well be the largest outlet for Casa Lapin, with their usual mix of high ceilings, industrial-style décor and plenty of wood complimented with wide windows to suffuse the space with natural light. The entrance is worth a mention; the plethora of plants and dried flowers appear to be courtesy of an in situ florist called Wallflowers (that seemed to have closed during our last visit, alas).

At the rear is a more refined sit-down dining space to supplement the hip café area; there is also a hostel and co-working space called ONEDAY. The biggest surprise is their menu, which elevates usual brunch fare with some Thai-influenced dishes such as flash-fried crispy eggs paired with a shellfish marinara gravy. Delicious.

我們近來到訪曼谷,都愛住在Phrom Phong一帶,
這裡除了有新開業的商場外,還有許多的特色咖啡館,
有時懶得搭車去玩,在酒店、附近的商場和咖啡館之間閒逛,也是一種樂趣。
這家Casa Lapin x26距離我們下榻的酒店約五分鐘的步行距離,
起床梳洗一番后,走幾步路就能坐下來享用咖啡和來份熱騰騰的早餐,
非常適合我們這種懶人。

說起來這已經是我們到訪過的第四家Casa Lapin了。
相比起之前到訪過的幾家,這裡除了一貫的手沖和意式咖啡外,
在食物的方面更是增添了不少選擇。
咖啡館的前半部走工業風,以裸磚配上大量的木製家具,
而后半部分則比較像正規的餐館,空間是四家里最大的。
值得一提的還有入口處那有一所的花店,天氣涼爽時,
坐在外頭與花草植被為伍,邊吃早餐邊享用咖啡,可是一件很愉快的事呢。
