For delicious food and cheap coffee, you can head to About Cafe’. This coffee shop is in Maenam and is a great venue for breakfast and late afternoon snacks. It is also a good stop to get your coffee fix. It is a quirky little place that makes cute coffee art. The interior is unique as it is decorated with interesting bits of odd finds and trinkets.They have a WiFi connection so you can do some browsing here or perhaps check on your social media accounts. We love their iced latte. It is perky, nicely sweet, and ideal for the summer heat. They also serve yogurt with fruit toppings, sandwiches, and a nice golden waffle with honey. A good way to get both a light snack and caffeine dose in one glass is their banana coffee shake. This is cooling, filling, and with a kick of coffee. A non-coffee beverage that we loved from their menu is the virgin mojito. It is mighty refreshing and comes in a big glass. It is great bang for your buck.

A plateful of goodness, this has bacon, eggs, potatoes, toast and jam. For only 120 baht, this will put all the other breakfast plates to shame. Their English Breakfast is pretty good too. For coffee we cannot get enough of their iced cappuccino. The service at Coffee Cup is impressive and the staffs are friendly. It is no wonder people who once visited the place come back a second, third, and nth time. It is just a lovely place to relax and get your caffeine fix.
