 on 

30 years ago, local coffee shops in Bangkok were few and far between. But over the last 20 years, the coffee culture in Bangkok has evolved into a thriving economy. Today more people are developing a taste for coffee and are willing to pay a premium for it. 

Coffee sales in Thailand have been growing. In 2021, revenue in the Roast Coffee segment reached US$69.8m and is expected to grow annually by a further 9.98% (CAGR, 2021-2025).

As a result, Bangkok has experienced a cafe boom with many local cafes to choose from. In this article, we’ll take a look at 8 of Bangkok’s best local coffee shops for you to wind down in.

1. Factory Coffee – Bangkok 

Tucked away on a busy Phaya Thai road, this speciality coffee shop is run by Thai Barista Champion Athip Archalerttrakool. It’s known for its signature menu that offers unique drinks such as the ‘Mrs. Cold’ – a delicious blend of double-layer espresso and their ‘secret’ milk. In addition to their inventive flavours, they brew high-quality beans that are locally sourced and available to buy, brew and enjoy in the comfort of your home.

They are open every day from 8:30 am to 6:00 pm. On the other hand, you can order from them on GrabFood or LineMan. In conclusion, Factory Coffee sets a high standard for other local coffee shops in Bangkok.

Best Features: Their interior is simple in design and as you enter, you’ll notice the rectangular coffee bar next to the row of seats on the left. It has an industrial touch, with cement brick walls and dark wooden furniture. Their baristas are highly skilled and trained; in fact, each barista will make your order right at your table. In addition to coffee, they also serve a selection of non-caffeinated beverages and baked goods to enjoy.

2. Gallery Drip Coffee

Gallery Drip Coffee is another well-known, independent coffee shop in Bangkok that specialises in drip coffee. They prioritise sourcing single-origin, high-quality coffee beans from Northern Thailand, Ethiopia and Yemen. However, they do all the roasting themselves. Their coffee beans are hand-ground and hand-dipped to order and in turn, have a full and rich taste. And if you fall in love with their flavours, feel free to buy a bag of their coffee to take home with you. We recommend picking the iced coffee jelly for a sweet treat, which is topped with frothy milk and served with sugar on the side.

Along with their drip coffees, a selection of Lattes, Cappuccinos and Americanos are also available. Furthermore, light snacks, teas and other non-caffeine beverages can also be purchased.

They’re open Monday to Saturday from 10:30 am to 8:30 pm.

Best Features: As you walk in you’ll be welcomed by a wall covered in art pieces and shelves adorned with ceramic coffee mugs. The artsy feel gives it a cosy vibe, so it’s a great place to relax with some friends and unwind. Finally, their drinks are carefully crafted and have great quality, flavour and aroma.

Pricing: The coffee starts from 65 Baht.

Address: BACC, Rama 1 Rd 1 Khwaeng Wang Mai, Khet Pathum Wan, Bangkok, 10330.

Roots is a quaint little coffee spot in Bangkok. They are known for their coffee roasters and are one of the top coffee bean producers and distributors in Thailand. As a matter of fact, they have a selection of local coffee beans from Northern Thailand and elsewhere around the world to choose from. 

If you want to try something new, they serve signature infused coffees in a variety of fruity and floral flavours. In addition, the blended ice coffee flavours rotate every two weeks, so there’s always something new to try. On a hot day, we suggest trying out their peanut butter coffee float or fruity cold brew poured from the tap.

They’re open every day with varying opening times per location. Alternatively, orders are available from GrabFood or LineMan.

Best Features: Their coffee spaces are picturesque and inviting, featuring a large wooden bar surrounded by plenty of chairs and tables.

5. Phil’s Coffee Company 

Phil’s Coffee Company is an artisan coffee roastery. They serve single-origins from Chiang-Rai, Ethiopia, Rwanda and Kenya and have a range of house roasts to buy as well. We recommend their flat white which has a smooth and rich pour. Lastly, they sell a basic but delicious selection of pastries, acai berry bowls and homemade granola.

They are available to order from LineMan and additionally are open Monday – Friday (9:00 am – 6:00 pm) and Saturday – Sunday (10:00 am – 5:30 pm).

Best Features: It is close to Ekkamai BTS station and thus is very accessible. But it’s a hidden location in the quiet lanes means it’s rarely full. As a small cafe, it has a cosy, homey feel and so is a great spot to get some work done.
