[Bangkok] It is undeniable that Bangkok cafes are stepping up their game, especially in their design element.
If you are searching for that one “instagrammable” café, BOYY & Son Café ticks most of the boxes.
Located on the ground floor of a newly renovated building in Gaysorn Village, BOYY & Son Café is stylish, calming, pretty in pink and light cyan. Can I add fashionable?
Of course it has to be to, as it is the café off-shoot of international brand BOYY, headed by designers Jesse Dorsey from Montreal and Wannasiri Kongman from Bangkok.
The cafe is adjacent to the BOYY Boutique where you can purchase handbags, shoes and a variety of accessories.
This tastefully designed establishment is an ideal place to visit for a coffee break, especially when it is not that far from the main shopping area. Central World is across the road, Erawan is a short walk away.
The interior is inspired by a lovely mix of an American diner and a vintage Italian joint from the 70’s.
You have the comfy seating booths with retro finishes, Murano glass ceiling lamps, cushion textiles crafted by Loro Piana Interiors, as well as a nice built-in aquarium in the wall decorated with gold edges.
Yes, REAL fishes within.
At the coffee bar, you would find a retro-style custom made pink La Marzocco coffee machine.
Every inch of this place is designed with extreme attention to detail. The utensils, the napkins… I mean the colour of their sugar packages matches with the colour of the seating booths, and the coffee cup has the same design as their booth seats.
Considered a small space, yet there are all those details.
And thanks to the giant windows around the café, there is plenty of natural light here.
The menu is pretty straight forward, containing mostly beverage items and a few snack options.
The standout items include Pandan Latte (140 baht), BOYY Café Yen (140 baht), Iced Thai Orange Mocha (140 baht), Icy BOYY & SON Expresso Caramel (130 baht), Matcha Latte (140 baht), Houjicha Latte (140 baht), Iced Genmaicha (120 baht), and Iced Valrhona Dark Chocolate Mint (150 baht).
As an indication, the drinks are between SGD5 (USD3.70) to SGD6.30 (USD4.60).
The coffee was decent, and the Pandan Latte surprisingly was not overly strong, with the delicate fragrance of the leaves coming in only subtlety.
Take small sips, and take your time.
The food choices are still limited for now, though they will introduce seasonal bakes and rotational items.
Some of the available items were Italian Cheesecake, Cakettes in flavours of Young Coconut and Chocolate Cream, and selection of Croissants.
The Croque Monsieur Croissant with Egg (170 baht, SGD7.10, USD5.20), slightly on the pricey side, had delicious cheesy fillings, but I wished that the pastry was fluffier.
If you are looking for a stylish café with a friendly and warm vibes, BOYY & Son Café should definitely be included on your list of must-visit coffee joints in Bangkok.
I visited the café early in the morning for the non-crowd interior shots. If you come later in the day and during weekends, it would be filled, mostly with females aiming for a shot.
