BOYY & Son Cafe is a stylish cafe in Gaysorn Village, the same building the houses the Paste Restaurant that we wrote about yesterday. It is connected to the BOYY Boutique which is also a lovely place for fashionistas. Both places exude an atmosphere of calm and peace with their plain, minimalist decor.
We did not really need to eat anything but decided to check out BOYY & Sons Cafe as it looked so irresistible. The entire floor, service counter, tables and seating booths had a uniform retro finish. I believe they call this terrazzo – bits of marble embedded in concrete and smoothed into a flush marble-like surface. This flat homogenous look was playfully punctuated by splashes of colour in the form of the pink La Marzocco FB80 coffee machine, a circular wall aquarium and glass fish heads at each table. Everything was simple yet so beautiful.
The BOYY & Son Cafe menu is as simple as the decor. The menu contains mostly coffee and other beverage items with just a few food items. The almond croissants on display looked inviting and so we tried one of that.
Here is a picture of our coffee break and snack. The cappuccino (140 baht) made with the lovely La Marzocco machine was superb – smooth and balanced in taste. The croissant (130 baht) was totally covered with a dense layer of sliced almonds. If we had more days in Bangkok, it would be a place to make repeat visits.
Diners at each booth gets to dine with a fish face. Made of blown coloured glass, each one was different. It looks like the fish had swallowed a light bulb in the mouth. We can imagine the place might look even better in the evenings when the lights are turned on.
