“Quaint and cosy cafe/gallery with friendly owners”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Moka caught my attention when I was doing my research on Bangkok on TA. I told my 17 year old niece and she was interested too. So one the day that we went to Khao San Road we made a visit to Moka.
As we entered we noticed that the shoes or slippers were left outside, it was like visiting a home in Asia. So we did just that, left our footwear out and stepped in onto the cool floor. We were welcome warmly by one of the owners. The tables and chairs were very unique, e.g. recycled sewing machine that became a table etc.
As it was a hot day we decided to try the lemon and lychee fizz and they were very delicious and thirst quenching, my niece really enjoyed it. We shared a carrot cake which was yummy too. I browsed about the shop and found a little gift to bring home. The owner has a cute little dog called, Mika. It was hiding under a cupboard and will come out occasionally barking to welcome the visitors. Apparently the café is in a 99 year old building that belonged to the owner's grandmother.
We sat there chilling out in the café, enjoying our cold drinks and watching the world go by.
When we were ready to leave, the owner thanked us for coming and kindly apologised for her barking dog, which was not necessary, as I love dogs.

“Amazing coffee in Thailand ?! Yes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

Gorgeous crema on expresso, silky lovely milk, well tasty home made carrot cake. Cool arts and crafts, cozy, funky ... I've been a barista in New Zealand for a decade, and this place would fit in on K road or Cuba street ... Worth waiting for them to open at 11am.

“Memorable experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Cute hidden little getaway to read a good book and enjoy some amazing coffee and deserts, a nice chilled out atmosphere from that of busy khao san road. The drinks are reasonably priced for Thailand. As you walk in you remove your shoes which gives the place a cosy homely feel; staff are super friendly and welcoming.

“Nice Place To Eat and Buy Art”

The coffee was the best I have had in Thailand. The sandwhiches and desserts were tastefully prepared. Bought some nice artwork for my house as well. Good Choice!

“Great place, great coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

I wish I could give Moka Gallery more than 5 stars. Coffee is great and home made waffles, Guiness chocolate cake and freshly made sandwiches are simply fantastic. Young ladies running Moka are so super nice, you certainly feel welcome there. Hard to put it in words but Moka just feels right and I will certainly be back. Thanks Moka
