Lovely desserts and coffeeWent there for tea. Desserts were amazing. Had the french toast stuffed with cranberry and the warm mixed berry crumble with ice cream. Both desserts were not too sweet and had a nice balance of sweet and sourness of the berries. Coffee that went with it was good too. Relaxing atmosphere.
Nice cafe but price a little pricey for Bangkok standardSituated in thong Lor soi13, it is about 15-20mins walk from Thong Lor BTS station, not so near. Serving more to western food like spaghetti and pasta. The food is good but on a pricey side for Bangkok standard but the environment makes it worthwhile.
So soGiven the reputation, price and locality my expectations were not even remotely met. Half of the menu items on their brunch menu were not available (a Saturday at 12.30), including 2 of 3 coffee roasts (oh, what was the name of this place again?). In addition, it took the waiter more than 20 mins to serve the coffee. I also understood from the table next to me, that it took the waiter 30 mins to let them know that they had run out of the dish that particular client had ordered (in fairness, it only took them 10 mins to serve her the dish she decided on after that). The ambience is very nice, though crowded. The staff are a friendly bunch, but they wouldnt survive a week in a restaurant that depends on delivering efficient quality service. My food was quite good, with the exception of overly crispy bacon, otherwise I wouldve graded the visit even lower.
Hipster cafe with "international" pricesGlobally, all hipster cafes probably look more or less alike: exposed light bulbs, wood accents, industrial vibe, unrealistic prices. Roast joins these global ranks. All the check boxes are ticked here, and then some: they forget my drink (second time in the day its happened to me in Thong Lor). I appreciate that they were apologetic about it and that it was taken off my bill, but its funny how they can miss it out when I used my finger to point it out the item on the menu to them and even made sure I didnt rush through my order. And sometimes thats the problem with hipster cafes- form over substance.
不可错过的Roast。网评亚洲No.1的咖啡厅，其实就是一家西餐厅，位于日本区的The commons。菜单丰富多彩还可以to go，选择恐惧症的两个女孩点了一大桌子都吃光了！
