This cafe is located within the compound of the Jim Thompson House museum, alongside a Klong and facing a small pond filled with carp. I have eaten here in the past, but on this visit, opted simply for a cool drink. The coconut and ginger...More

We were visiting the house and booked a table for lunch. It is very busy, so make sure you book. We were shown to our table, which had to be cleared after the previous diners. It would have been preferable if this had been done...More

Had coconut café and café Thai style (coffee and condensed milk) and my dad had a piece of coffee cake and fresh coconut (coco water). It was quite expensive but the food was good.

A really pleasant lunch - and anywhere that can do a full lunch or just a great sandwich and coffee without a shrug is to be valued. The guide to our trip around the house was perfect. A really fine day.

The cage is adjacent to the Jim Thompson House Museum, perfect to refresh in your way out. They sell 'Jim Thompson' tea in a choice of English, Japanese or Chinese varieties. Very pleasant.

We visited the Jim Thompson museum and ate at the restaurant afterwards. The experience was closer to a disaster.. I don't consider my husband or myself difficult to please or satisfy. We always take the venue into consideration and adapt our expectations accordingly. We're both...More

I went here on my second to last trip to Bangkok and loved it. It had a lovely atmosphere and was really refreshing after walking around Jim Thompson's home. Help to make a lovely day that much better.
