Chikalicious Dessert Bar

Bars Café bars Phloen Chit

If you are craving for some sugar (yes, please), this place is for you. Chikalicious Dessert Bar offers a fine-dining experience but in the form of tantalizingly sweet desserts. Seat yourself at the open kitchen counter to see what the pastry chefs are whipping up. At the time we visited, there were six dessert sets to choose from. Each one starts with an appetizer called Amuse: green apple sorbet (they use Granny Smith apples, fresh from Australia) served with caramel soup. One of the main courses is a white chocolate mousse with vanilla wafer and strawberry sorbet. (It goes along very well with White Zinfandel, as the chef suggests). To finish, a tempting serving of petite fours: Coconut Marshmallow, Double Chocolate Sabléé, and Strawberry Choux. If you want to order à la carte, their signature dessert, Strawberry Dough' Ssant, a mix between a donut and a croissant, is perfect with the floral-scented Gryphon Gold Moscato tea.

Uncle Tetsu

Restaurants Bakeries Phrom Phong

Signature items are angel hat (zuccotto--a semi-frozen Italian dessert) which are available in three flavours: angel hats (Cheese), cupid hats (Strawberry), and devil hats (Chocolate). The other crowning items are rusk--cheese biscuit comes in crispy texture which you can either go for the original, strawberry or chocolate flavor and last but not least, the smooth and tender original cheesecake that can be served both warm and cold. There’s usually a massive queue, particularly at weekends, but it’s worth the wait. 

Think Cafe

Restaurants Cafés Taling Chan

The Teddy Cake, an instagram-famous dessert house, draws a lot of visitors to Think Cafe. The cutest bear-shape chocolate mousse, served with vanilla ice cream and fairy cocoa dust is too adorable to dig your spoon in. In Rainy Seasons, they also offer the Rainy Mousse for more instagrammable photos, chocolate covered matcha mousses shaped of raindrop served with chocolate brownie and green tea crumble. Yum!


Perhaps Rabbits’

Restaurants Tea rooms Ekamai

The Wonderland themed tea room recreates Alice’s tea party with such intricate details. From the gigantic tree to the white rabbit’s painting, wooden furnitures and colorful accessories are well incorporated to replicate the perfect scene. Desserts and drinks are also as impressive tailored to blend in with the settings. Most popular dishes are Bluebunny Egg, Daniel’s Cup, and Winter Wonder Pavlova.  

The Courtyard

Restaurants Tea rooms Bang Rak

Spend your afternoon with small bites and aromatic tea in the courtyard of a colonial-style building that was built in 1889. Afternoon tea at The Courtyard in The House on Sathorn is a posh affair, serving freshly baked scones, cakes, muffins, tarts and eclairs with TWG tea.



Restaurants Cafés Watthana

Inspired by the love of sugar, this dessert bar is enjoyable with the sweet pastel palette and cubic-like decorations. Not only desserts, this place also serves savory dishes inspired by French and Japanese culinary and a workshop space for anyone who loves to learn how to make fondant cake. Its signature dish, Shugaa, is homemade green tea ice cream serving with melon mousse, Japanese mochi with kinako powder, red bean and green tea cake filled with chestnut cream. There are also tiny desserts such as CrumpB’, a mushroom-shaped dessert made of English cream, caramelized apple and earl grey crumble as its base which is definitely too cute to be eaten.
