After You is Bangkok’s most popular dessert cafe. With up to 10 branches, they have cafes set up in hot spots such as Siam Paragon, Siam Square One, Central World, Thonglor and more.
I didn’t have much time to research about Bangkok for this trip so I trusted Miss M to craft an amazing itinerary for us – and she did! She told me about this cafe called After You that we ‘must’ go. She said that it’s so popular that there’s always a queue.
So we headed to the Siam district via BTS and roamed around Siam Square One. Once there, we spent a good 15 minutes trying to look for the cafe. It was confusing because the entrance of the cafe was outside of the mall. Nevertheless, we found it and in we went!
The design of the exterior reflects an european vibe with red bricks and large windows. Love it 🙂
Once we entered, the cafe was full so we had to take a number. Beware though, the waitress shouts out the number in Thai! Lucky for us there was also a screen that shows the queue number. We waited for about 15 minutes.
While waiting, there was a table set up with After You merchandises. I was really tempted to buy their apron and their bread pouch. It looked really good! But I resisted 😛
Once our table was ready, we were brought to our seats. Surprisingly, they do not take orders at the tables. Patrons have to go up to the counter to place their orders.
There is a large menu displayed on the counter itself. This was a bit inconvenient because we could only see what they have to offer once you reach the counter.
Something unique that After You serves is their Shibuya Black Toast, but we didn’t order it. Instead, we tried their classic ‘mini’ Shibuya toast which was also something new to the both of us.
There were plenty of windows to keep the whole cafe bright with sunlight. Perfect for taking photos 😛
As usual, I ordered a hot cappuccino for myself and Miss M ordered their iced lavender tea – pretty interesting!
After a while, our desserts came. I’ve always seen mille crepe in other dessert places but never had the chance to try them. So this was my chance! It looked really pretty with all the layers of crepe carefully arranged on top on each other.
Presenting.. A mini Shibuya toast! It was so small that it was just sliced into 4 pieces. We ordered the milo version as Miss M loves Milo.
Overall, we had a great time. This place is an absolute must for anyone that visits Bangkok. The atmosphere of their cafe was very chill. A great place to wind down and have a nice cup of coffee alongside sweet desserts.
