Well.. you can walk there if you want.... but it's far from the Ekkamai road. Take a taxi or a moto taxi. It's a very cute place: little store with cool men's wear and accessories and a coffee shop. they also offer a few egg dishes, sandwiches and waffles. Our sandwich of the day was delicious. And the fruit waffle was fantastic. They only have orange fresh juice and water, if you are looking for something else besides coffee. The staff is very nice. The prices are very reasonable. For one espresso, water, 2 orange juices, one sandwich, one salad and one huge fruit waffle we paid 700 baht. The only no-no is that you can't pay by card in the coffee shop but yes in the store.

This is a lovely café of the type that these days tends to be known as “hipster joint”. It has a great menu of original and innovative snacks (my favourite: egg elements, vegetarian option – it really hits the spot without making you feel overly full). Tasty smoothies (e.g. banana smoothie with almond crunch – yum) and the whole range of coffees you have come to expect in a place of this ilk, flat white and all. Great WIFI and friendly staff. There is even a shop attached to the café (which opens later, though, around noon) which sells sunglasses, bags, hats, shoes and other hipster must-have items.

This is a nice-looking cafe, attached to a small boutique. It's essentially in the middle of a residential area and not the easiest to find. Pay particular attention to Google maps - there's no signage on any of the 'feeder' roads in the Ekkamai area of Sukhumvit 63 to direct you and no shingle obvious from the street.

Most of the seating here is outside although if you're wanting to escape the heat, you can nab one of the few stools along the bar or window or you might be lucky enough to score the bench seat at the only table. The coffee is presented well and if you like yours on the weak side you'll be pretty happy. The espresso shot was perfectly drinkable but tasted a bit watery. A piccolo was also way too milky for my liking.

My visit on the coffee shop was after some marathon of coffee shops around the Ekkamai area. They have some beans for you to choose and different methods of making coffee that makes the experience of drinking it very interesting. The only downside of the visit was the lack of interest demonstrated by staff. We walk in the shop and nobody asked anything. Didn't offered explanations about the coffee and etc. that made the visit not enjoyable as it could be.
The menu has only few options of drinks and food and I couldn't order anything to eat during my coffee degustation. Sad because the place looks very nice.

A cafe that mix between coffee shop and Onion brand.I went to this place because my Singaporean friend read about this place from an article on the internet and she wanted to give it a try. The cafe itself is very small because it shares its space with a brand store that sell stuffs like shoes and sunglasses. The seating were limited. If want to get an AC, there're only about 4 seats available and they're bar stools. There were about 3-4 tables for an open-air area. I order a drink (passionfruit with soda) and food (egg and bacon on the pan) and they were good. The price were relatively expensive.

This cafe is actually popular for its coffee roaster Brave Roasters but we didn't order any coffee to drink at all lol. Btw, the staffs were nice and can speak English really well.
