  • 10 Great Cake Shops in Bangkok

    Bangkok Sweet Sins

    Bangkok has a very sweet tooth, so it isn’t surprising that there are so many fantastic places for dessert around the city. Perhaps you want to try local specialities, famous favourites, or simply enjoy a delicious slice with a cup of tea then check out our list of 10 great cake shops in Bangkok. It’s been a hard few months, and despite the potential health risks we kept going, working our way through plenty of sweet treats to come up with this list, and making sure there is something for everyone: fun, sophistication, and even a few unusual choices. Trust the chocoholic, Bangkok is the perfect place to indulge in sinful desserts, so why not invest in some stretchy pants and try a selection of the shops and cafés that we recommend for a great sugar high.

  • To taste dessert the Thai way head down to one of Bangkok's four branches of Coffee Beans by Dao. They have taken the humble cakeand created 70 different desserts, from traditional coconut cream cake to sinful cookies and cream cheesecake. This cafe is popular with Bangkokians, who come here in groups to share a selection or take away these tasty creations in Coffee Beans by Dao's famous pale blue and gold cake box. Read More...

    Induldge your inner-child with giant marshmallows, large slices of chocolate cake covered in M&Ms and KitKats, all washed down with flavoured milk. Filled with toys, time at Mr Jones'  can also be spent playing with helicopters or telling stories to teddy bears. If you don't like to play with your food there is also a delicious range of scones or grown-up semolina, pistachio and honey cake. This is one orphanage both adults and children will be happy to spend more time in.  Read More...

    After You serves the original and best shibuya honey toast in Bangkok, a cake-sized chunk of bread served warm with a scoop of ice-cream and a range of toppings including strawberries and chocolate. The portions should come with a warning, you probably won't be able to finish a piece alone! Even though it's been open a while the five branches in the city get busy at weekends, but once you've had a taste you'll be glad you waited. Read More...

    Agalico Tea Room is a secret garden hidden behind neo-classical house that serves a small but delicious selection of cakes. It's the perfect place to forget about the hustle and bustle of Bangkok, with a light and airy tea-room and a beautiful English-style garden with wild flowers and gazebo that was made for afternoon tea. The chocolate truffle cake is recommended, and goes very well with the selection of unusual teas from around the world that they serve with it.  Read More...

    Ice cream and Teppanyaki are two words we never thought would go well together. In our minds, teppanyaki is a Japanese way to grill meat, so it was weird trying to visualize someone dropping a melting scoop of ice cream onto a grill. But the stranger the idea, the more we want to try it, so we crossed the river to reach 'The Lantern', a creative ice cream shop located at the foot of the Millennium Hilton hotel. It's very easy to get to and the beautiful view of the Chao Phraya river is one more reason to give it a try. Read More...

    This small French-inspired cake shop has taken the Queen of France’s words: "let them eat cake" to heart, serving up a capsule collection of delicious French patisseries and cakes with the occasional Thai twist. This cakes shop is located around ten minutes’ walk from the end of Sukhumvit Soi 20 in Mille Malle, a small neighbourhood shopping complex. Situated on the ground floor, it is easily recognisable by its Paris-inspired outdoor patio and slate-coloured shop front. Open late every evening, it makes a great after-dinner spot with a group of friends. Read More...

    Elysian Tea House might be a little tricky to find, but once you get there you’ll be rewarded with an amazing range of lose teas, blended in-house, and pastries and patisseries. Located on Sukhumvit 49/, we recommend visiting on a weekend when there is the largest selection of cakes available, but if you’re looking for a quiet spot to relax and enjoy a bit of peace, Elysian Tea House is the just the spot. The chef spends the early morning baking mouth-watering croissants and pain aux chocolats as well as tarts and patisseries. Read More...

    The Sukhothai takes afternoon tea to a new level with a three-and-a-half hour buffet every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 14:00. This is the place to come if you want a huge variety of sweets, from freshly mixed hot chocolates, to tarts, pastries, cakes and buns, with warm scones served at your table. To balance things out they also serve some tasty afternoon tea savouries, including sushi and sandwiches. Read More...

    Secret garden is a cute bakery and home to the famous crepe cake, an intricate dessert made from layer upon layer of pancake, covered in strawberry sauce. Set in an English styled white building surrounded by a beautiful garden, you can chose to dine in a cozy indoor room decorated with green tones, flowers and large chandeliers, on the wooden terrace or if weather permits, al fresco under very large trees. Each area has its own atmosphere but the garden is always the most popular.  Read More...
