Description: We are a new cafe in Bangkok creating employment for young people from the Klong Toey Slum. We are passionate about seeing young people have opportunity to relate to people and life outside the slum. Our vision is that the cafe creates a safe environment for young people to work, gain experience and confidence with every cup of coffee we serve. Through journeying with our staff we hope the cafe will be a stepping stone to future employment and broadening their horizons.

They have very good food, and fantastic milkshakes, but that was not the surprise. the super nice playroom for kids was the best find in a long... More

Enjoyed two separate visits to Munjai cafe during a recent family holiday to Bangkok. We thoroughly enjoyed both visits and highly recommend a visit to anyone wanting some good food and an opportunity to support a great cause.

Everybody should visit Munjai Café. Me and my friends visited several times during February and March 2014 and we love the place. Going there we could get to know the staff and hear the amazing story of how Munjai started! If you want a nice meal/snack you should visit and also know that your money goes to a good cause,...

This restaurant offers Australian, Thai and European cuisine. These people have taken the concept of culinary to the next level. The food theatre is at its best. It is also quite e6xpensive, however it is worth it. The meals, service and ambience deserves a 10 star rating. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. It is truly an experience that should...

After a sweet serenade by the extremely talented young Manager- I then found out that this Cafe is also a Fairtrade employment initiative that trains... More

Had a lovely lunch here - good food, good cause and good coffee - plus a delicious red velvet cupcake to finish, yum! The staff here are friendly and do a great job, the decorations for Christmas were warm and inviting and the food was tasty and reasonably priced - highly recommended.

This little cafe has a ton of character and a quality menu, while maintaining its commitment to serve the nearby slum community. It's a great place to grab a bite and get some work done or have a meeting, and yet it sustains a kid-friendly environment.

The staff are so friendly and they have a great range of food. They have set up a children's play area and our 1 year had a ball. This is the best place we have found in Bangkok to eat out with a small child. The Cafe has been set up to train and support local people, giving opportunities to... More
