Time Out says
It’s now serving simple caffeine boosters, but The Palette will add umeshu drinks to its after-hours line-up once the alcohol ban is lifted.
It’s another day and another new café has sprung up in the city. Not too far away from Chaloemla Gardens, the Ratchathewi park that’s liberally tagged with street art and graffiti, stands The Palette, a converted two-story shophouse where you can sit back, relax, and sip flavorful coffees and creative drinks amid inviting, fuss-free vibes.
For more straightforward brews, you can opt for either a latte (from B70), dirty coffee (B90) or Viennese Einspänner Coffee (B100), served either black or white. Cold brews (from B90) are also available.
A variety of beans, sourced both locally and from known global purveyors, add a rich flavor and tempting aroma to each cup. Single origin beans from Kokjoon Village in Nan are used for the espressos, while medium roast coffee beans go into a caffeine booster that has a sour, yet still pleasant, taste. The Palette’s drip coffees benefit from the use of beans from Ethiopia, Columbia, Honduras and Chiang Rai.
For something more innovative, try the specials, like Spark Joy (B100), which adds plum soda to an Americano; or Honeycomb Latte (B95), a fun drink generously topped with crunchy honeycomb. Non-coffee drinkers can go for the bittersweet Pal’s Cocoa (B90) or the citrusy Yuzu Fizz (B90).
A distinctly Japanese vibe, from the white-and-wood furniture, to the cushioned chairs, to the sleek minimalist vases, hangs over the café. And there’s a reason for this. Once the alcohol ban is no longer in our way, The Palette plans to launch an after-hours umeshu bar. Now, that’s something to look forward to.
