To date, Roast Coffee & Eatery in Thonglor is by far my best place to eat in Bangkok in terms of amazing food at decent value. Roast Coffee has definitely made itself heard in Bangkok though, and it’s top notch service and great food hasn’t gone unmissed – if planning on heading to Roast Restaurant on the weekend, it’s best to book in advance to avoid a long wait outside.
The interior of Roast coffee & Eatery is spacious and airy with sophisticated, industrial style decor and high ceilings. There is a small, shaded balcony available outside for you to sit and dine alfresco if you wish too. Menus are charmingly brought to you in the design of a vintage newspaper with a huge choice of lunch, coffees and brunch dishes.
The coffees and iced teas at Roast Coffee & Eatery are highly reputed as some of the best in Bangkok; you can even buy Roast’s own brand of coffee beans to take home. Specialty iced teas come served in a delightful jar with lychees and mint leaves; unlike many other cafes in Bangkok, drinks are not overly sweet and have some really nice, subtle flavours. A big jar of iced tea at Roast restaurant will typically cost about 100 baht.
On to the food menu at Roast Coffee & Eatery: There is wide choice of dishes on the menu from seafood stew & crusty bread, gourmet toad in the hole and Wagyu burgers & chips to the American style crispy bacon & pancakes, goats cheese frittata and a great choice of healthy salads.
The food menu at Roast Coffee & Eatery will set you back between around 250 and 400 baht per dish on average. However, Roast is one of those places where everything tastes AMAZEBALLS and is totally worth the money – portion sizes are generous unlike some other pretentious, over-priced restaurants and cafes in Bangkok.
Desserts at Roast cost an average of around 200 baht but are also of decent girth and tastiness for the price. Roast Coffee & Eatery is also open at night when it hosts live music and serves a range of mouthwatering cocktails from around 180 baht a glass. Roast Thonglor is a very popular cafe brunch restaurant for couples and groups of friends looking for a chilled out hangout with some of the best food in Bangkok.
