A short walk from bustling Soi Thonglor, Soi Sukhumvit 36 and Soi Sukhumvit 38 are known among locals as a shortcut to Rama 4 Road. The alleys are also popular residential areas, boasting rows of condos and townhouses. But, unbeknown to many, a number of small cafes and eateries also inundate the neighborhood’s small sub-alleys, not to mention the area is also home to the headquarters of Time Out Bangkok.

Set adjacent to sister Italian restaurant L’Olivia, Caffè Olives is shadowed by two olive trees growing on its outdoor terrace. The café focuses mainly on caffeinated brews, creamy cakes and comfort bites that highlight Italian flavors, particularly those of Abruzzo, a city in Southern Italy known for exceptional olives. Highlights include pizza topped with zucchini cream and mortadella. If you’re after lighter fare, try the kale anchovy salad with refreshing lemon dressing. Also not to miss is the olive oil cake, which pairs perfectly with their Italian coffee.
