Roast Coffee & Eatery

Roast Coffee & Eatery – A great Thong Lor Restaurant

Roast takes coffee so seriously that one corner of the large dining room is cordoned off for the shiny black and gold roaster. Serving not only a great caffeine hit, but a delicious selection of comforting international dishes, this large and airy restaurant is just the place for a lazy brunch or a couple of glasses of wine with some tapas in the evening.

Found in Scene Space on Thong Lor, a 2,500sqm lifestyle mall with a collection of shops and restaurants located around 100 metres on the left along Soi 13. The easiest way to get here is to take a taxi from BTS Thong Lor; it takes around five minutes and costs around 50 baht, although walking the fifteen minutes from Sukhumvit would help you work up an appetite. Roast is on the first floor, book if you are coming at the weekend as it gets very busy.

Roast has an industrial feel, housed in a huge brick-and-glass block with high ceilings and an intriguing wine bottle mobile clinking in the breeze. There are plenty of comfy retro seats inside, or you can eat on the balcony than runs along the front of the restaurant, shaded from the sun and traffic by some overgrown greenery. Be sure to check out the open bar and attractive desserts display. Some of the dishes on the menu at Roast can be purchased at the deli, along with some very tasty French bread and pastries. The smell of fresh coffee and baking is welcoming; this restaurant has a lively buzz and is frequented by young couples, families and large groups of friends.


Sometimes following the crowd is a good thing, and Roast is definitely best for brunch. We forgot to book ahead and had to wait 10 minutes for a table, but the newspaper-style menu has a lot of options so we needed that time to decide. They’ve put some interesting twists on breakfast classics, with potato and duck hash rather than toast in their big breakfast, crab cake Benedict and basil and goat’s cheese frittata (on the menu as ‘frittatina’). Never one to pass up the chance of sausages for breakfast I tried the toad in the hole; the light crispy batter and thick onion gravy only left me with enough room to share their signature dessert, waffles with fresh strawberries and cream, served with honey, but sweet enough without.

Coffee is still the main draw for most visitors, and Roast offers a huge range of in-house roasted varieties, hot, cold or blended. They also offer you different brews, not only filter but also French press and espresso. For most people the level of connoisseurship here is merely entertaining, but the flavours are rich and smooth. They have even paired their coffees with dishes, like many high-end restaurants do with wine and they haven’t forgotten the non-coffee lovers either with fruity ice-tea blends, pink lemonade and a decent selection of wines by the glass or bottle.

Although Sundays are their busiest day, the standard of service was excellent, they didn’t rush you out before you had finished your last mouthful and it was comfortably busy rather than hectic. Still a popular hang-out for groups at the weekend, it’s a great place to get a hearty breakfast or lunch. On weekdays come for your caffeine and cake hit whilst making use of their free Wi-Fi.
