[Bangkok] Good things come to those who search. And in this case, a totally hidden find of a garden-themed café with delicious cakes located above a florist.
I was actually trying to locate “Nana Coffee Roasters” which is a short walk away from the bustling Yaowarat Chinatown (near Hua Lamphong train station).
It turned out that it is now known as Wallflowers Café, and how apt the name.
The floral-themed café is nestled in the heart of Soi Nana, with a lovely flower shop (Oneday Wallflowers) and a quaint flower garden that leads to the café on 2nd floor.
The place combines the love of coffee with the exquisiteness of flowers and colours.
Before going up, the twisted stairway with artistic lamps and flower pots offer picturesque beauty, offering a great site to take pictures.
There were a couple of tourists who took their coffee and cakes downstairs, just to have that prized shot before heading back up.
The café has a very nice, warm setting with natural light and outdoor seating area.
What I enjoyed was that cakes were displayed in full view for you to pick, with signatures ranging from Dark Beer Cake, Red Velvet, New York Cheese Cake, Carrot Cake and Crème Brulee.
One thing for sure, the cakes were gorgeously-pretty, in striking colours decorated with fresh fruits and edible flowers.
They are not considered cheap though, priced at 150 baht (SGD6.80) onwards per slice.
The Purple Sweet Potato Cake was not just a good-looker though, creamy and moist, with distinct sweet potato taste and yet not being overly sweet or heavy. Considering there was a lot of starch going on there.
They serve quality coffee at Wallflowers café that is freshly brewed and very aromatic.
Other than the milky Latte (130 baht) made with their signature house blend, the other recommended drink is the Le Boissom De Kanda (250 baht) – basically a carbonate espresso with a light and fruity aroma.
There are hints of citrus and peach along with earl grey for fragrance. This blend won the Signature Drink Award 2016 and is the most ordered one from their menu.
You can also try their carefully brewed Drip Coffee (250 baht) which is roasted and brewed at specific temperatures to bring out the best taste and fragrance.
