Location and contact

Set in a cosy square space on an accessible soi, the style is a mishmash of cafes and restaurants you could find in any global city of style, particularly Copenhagen where the main partner spent her formative years. There are plenty of details for the aesthetics crowd to enjoy (courtesy of the other main partner) including high and low timber tables, recycled timber, a signature wall of light-bulbed letters and some arrangements that cater well to groups (book those early, particularly on weekends). The crowd is a 50-50 split between local and farang, with a stream of homesick Scandinavians getting their Euro fix. It's good for a coffee, meal, drink, or more. There's room for about 40 comfortably,

Dexter is a great cafe/restaurant located between Sathorn and Silom road. It is worthwhile finding the place as it is quiet, nice and resonably priced. Good selection of snack food with the highlight being the homemade nachos with jalapenos and cheddar cheese. Happy hour on...More

Very nice Ambience and they had a good happy hour, but Upon returning home and looking at my credit card statement they had overcharged me by about 40 US dollars. Beware!

I had a yogurt and omelette, with an orange juice - and paid 900 bath which is 30$ USD. It’s more expensive than downtown NY or any capital in the World. The food was OK nothing special. Wayyyyyyy overpriced.

Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers
on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop

They do have a happy hour. Unfortunately I did not take note. You might have to find a place for massage after eating.
