1. jones the grocer
This may not be the first places that pop up into your mind because it kinda looks like a restaurant but they sells coffee too and they have a small section for a cafe. The important thing is that they give you free wifi and you can use it until the store close. The staff is also nice and doesn’t mind at all if you want to sit and do your work for the whole day. If you are hungry you can order a main dish, their specialty is steak because this store came from Australia. The store is decorated to look like a kitchen but with an industrial taste. The seats are comfortable and do you know that they also sells beers, wine too? You know, right that if you want to spice up your work a bit you know what to order.

One of the Thai cafes that you should not look over. True coffee will make your business with true shop more relaxing because while you are waiting for your queues you could order drinks, or pastry and even you could order a toast too, so that even though you are hungry you won’t have to leave the store.

3.Dean & Deluca
A cool cafe from New York that opened in Thailand in just a few years ago but has gained quite a lot popularity. The store has decorated like we’re entering our friends kitchen but have a bit industrial feeling but more friendly. The key point is that outside the window we could see that there is a waterfall that will make us relax and calm with the scenery. There is charging station scattered all over the place. And the coffee are awesome and have a wide variety of pastry. They also serve main dish too. And above all they will give you free unlimited wifi, and after you done with your work you can shop small groceries and small item that was imported from the USA which look very minimal but with style.

4.au bon pain
A French cafe that have a feels like home atmosphere. Their drinks, pastry and salad are great but the highlight are at the sandwich, which they have quite a selection to choose from (my favourite is bagel, what’s yours?) after ordering they will gently make our order by hands and they use the freshest and cleanest ingredients making it very fresh, healthy and above all, very delicious. The cafe looks nice and cute with lots of lighting like we’re in a cafe abroad. If you want to work there, they will give you free wifi for 2 hours. If you want a simple cafe with simple atmosphere to work, then this is the place.
