ไล-บรา-รี่ - Library Cafe (AIS Design Centre)


 This was an unexpected pleasure and Bangkok certainly has a few surprises. After viewing the Game of Thrones - Pencil MicroScuplture in The Emporium at the AIS Design Centre. 



I continued to walk through and came upon a very large open space - with chairs at one end, with a small coffee bar at at the other a library - it really was quite satisfying.



I ordered a cappuccino and simply watched the world - the library was very quiet and the Cappuccino was surprisingly good quality.



I would certainly got to the library if I needed to and the coffee shop at one end was a very good idea  - I would go again.

Tung Ka Cafe (ทุ่งคา-กาแฟ)



Tung Ka Cafe (ทุ่งคา-กาแฟ) is a place which which is situated just North of Phuket Town on the top of Rang Hill.


There has been some recent development which has made Rang Hill even more popular as a wonderful spot for taking a photo - I did - here's some of my visits.


I find the use of the old coat hangers at the front quite entertaining - I did wonder where they had ended up after the introduction of plastic ones.



There is a great selection of food to choose from 



and we are not disappointed with it and there is a lot to choose from. There are also a lot of fancy drinks and deserts - but I am always taken with the coffee.


They seem to have had problems with some tourists clambering into the surrounding area? 


A pleasure to see that they still recognize things of religious importance. 


I did wonder why there were reindeer on the balcony - it wasn't Christmas. It has become more popular with large tour groups which has devalued our visits unfortunately.


Also a lot of monkeys are outside - be careful.

Backyard Cafe



Backyard Cafe is the third cafe something which has been here on the corner of the road here in the east two years so my first comment would be 'Good Luck'  and I wonder whether it is still there when this is posted?



The decor is really quite interesting to look at but I really would not like to have to clean it all.



I do like these elephants though.


The traditional Thai breakfast was wonderful and I have it every time that I come.



There is also a selection of Western Dishes to have



and of course a coffee... Just read that they do have promotions for the food other Facebook Page.

Camp Curry




Not sure If this is open any longer - but I would hope that it wasn't - it put a twist on the normal way of serving food and then another of decorating the restaurant as if I was a Scout all over again and going camping.



BUT the food was nothing like I remember. Choose from a selection of five sauces for your curry - the food comes and then you pour the very hot sauce over your choice.



Then there are a number of extra bits to add - a great spot for a lunch break with your friends.
