Too Fast to Sleep Bangkok is more than just another cafe. Conveniently located just off Bangkok’s busy Silom Road, this two-storey complex offers a haven for nocturnal city dwellers, university students coming to study (or play Candy Crush) late into the night, as well as the occasional after-hours straggler who’s been hitting the bars and in need of a nice warm pick-me-up of the non-alcoholic variety.
Few cafes in Bangkok stay open around the clock, and none enjoy a better location than Too Fast to Sleep, which is steps away from Sam Yan MRT Station and less than five minutes’ walk from the major Sala Daeng BTS Station on Silom Road.

Decor here is undeniably hip, although the ‘Scandinavian studio’ look they have gone for might seem a bit more like an Ikea Superstore, depending on how snobbish you are when it comes to interior design. This means an abundance of polished concrete surfaces, hardwood flooring and plenty of bookshelves and large desks to get you in the mood to study.
We love the seating here too, which ranges from sturdy chairs, to bar stools and even a cushioned area for groups to hangout in comfort. The main room also has some enormous floor-to-ceiling windows, making the place feel bright, open and spacious with light flooding in during the daylight hours.
In terms of food and drink, Too Fast to Sleep delivers sturdy range of coffee, tea soft drinks and there’s a short but sweet menu of cakes, Thai favourites and international dishes such as fried rice, pad krapow, pastas, curries and salads. Expect to pay around 10-20 baht more than your average cafe, with coffees around 80-100 baht and food in the 60-150 baht price range. Do note that the kitchen is not open 24 hours, but the cafe is.
One more important thing to note (that would otherwise make Too Fast to Sleep go out of business): Wi-Fi is free, fast and available throughout. There’re also plenty of sockets to charge your computer, phone or tablet.
