When looking for the best coffee or best brunch place in Bangkok, Roast Coffee & Eatery is surely on top of the list. It is a popular cafe which has opened several branches including the original one at Thonglor, one at The Helix of EmQuartier mall and this at theCOMMONS with an easy-going vibe.
The newspaper menu has a whole lot of brunch and all-day dishes such as egg Benedicts, signature strawberry waffle and fluffy pancakes, burgers and sandwiches, salad and pasta. The list extends to solid coffee and specialized drinks provided by Roots, another well-known coffee shop around Bangkok.
The crab cake benedict is one of the best I have had, with lumps of crabmeat serve atop a poached egg, with the yolk runny through together with the hollandaise. It is completed with a slightly too sweet onion jam, roasted cherry tomato and asparagus.
The mashed avocado toast is a generous serving with a healthy sprinkle of pumpkin and sunflower seeds, sourdough and balsamic vinegrette salad.
We love the signature strawberry tea made with tea ice cubes, fresh strawberries and mint, as well as the soothing matcha latte.
I’m highly recommending this cafe to everyone, especially at the new eatery spot the COMMONS.
