Coffee and Junk
When I first arrived in Thailand (Dec. 1984), coffee shops didn't exist, it was either traditional Thai or Nescafe instant, only 5 star hotels offered a decent brew...
Since then much has changed, Thai people have turned to coffee with a vengeance and coffee shops are mushrooming everywhere, even in the most unlikely places!
My friend Steve was here on his yearly visit and during one of our traditional walking/wandering tours we'd ended up in Chinatown's Talad Noi area.
There I was seriously surprised to meet some Vietnamese ladies coming out of a very dark and gloomy storage room.
They claimed having had a nice cup of coffee inside!
My first impression inside wasn't very positive...
However on the left side were some stairs leading perhaps to a more coffee serving place.
And indeed it did!
The second floor offered a terrace and an inside shop.
Airconditioned, a few local clients and proper coffee!
Limited menu of which some items were already out of stock!
Not sure of the bike's purpose but it did a good job as decoration.
The old lady told me that they'd just opened 2 weeks ago!
My drink was ready: Espressonic Dark Calamansi!
Once outside again it became more obvious if one looks up...
And Steve found this neat wall mural a bit further on!
