Cafe Tartine is a bright and airy French cafe & patisserie serving a wide range of delicious salads, sandwiches, quiches and French desserts. The interior of Cafe Tartine is small and cosy yet spacious and light, furnished with birch wood tables and specialist wine bottles lining the walls. Customers have the option to sit either inside, or on the peaceful and comfortable terrace which has fans and cushioned seating. The road outside the cafe is rather quiet so it makes for a tranquil Al Fresco lunch.
Cafe Tartine is perfect for a healthy treat or a relaxed, casual afternoon lunch or brunch with friends in Bangkok. The menu prices range from around 140 to 250 baht per meal and the food served there is very good quality. The most unique thing about Cafe Tartine though, is it’s Create Your Own Salad & Sandwich menu.
With a huge choice of dressings, fillings and salad ingredients, you can have your perfect lunch for an average of just 200 baht. Although, the standard dishes on the main menu are good enough without needing to personalise them. Cafe Tartine’s Cobb Salad for example, comes jam-packed full of bacon, egg, pepper, blue cheese, roast chicken and avocado with a side of freshly baked bread.
Sandwiches come with a side of salad and cover everything from chicken, olive and goats cheese, to prosciutto ham and melted cheese. If you’re feeling particularly hungry, you can opt for the pork chop with french fries and roasted vegetables for just 230 baht. As for drinks, home made iced tea at Cafe Tartine costs just 50 baht for unlimited refills and comes with an optional jug of syrup if you don’t like it too sweet.
However, with a divine range of flans, chocolate pies and beautiful French cakes, desserts at Cafe Tartine are definitely not to be forgotten… The chocolate & pumpkin pie and the apple tart are particularly good; desserts are not too sweet and are noticeably made with high quality ingredients.
