Every now and then (read: every evening) I like a dessert. And what is more fun than trying new desserts in a new country, on holiday? We were advised to go to After You where you can drink good coffee and various desserts.
After You is a chain in Thailand and is spread over almost 20 places throughout Bangkok. We have been here twice and I am glad that this restaurant is not in Kuala Lumpur. Then I had to spend most of the day in the gym. But if you are in Bangkok and you are looking for a good coffee with a waffle then you have come to the right place.
Really, on every corner of the street, you’ll find dozens of coffee shops and ice-cream shops. After You combines these two and that works pretty well! People are in line to get a spot in this café, so you have to be a little bit patient. The interior is warm and homely as if you’re at your grandmother’s kitchen. Only I have never seen my grandmother bake haha but it is always very cozy! Anyway, then you are in line to place your order and you still have to make a choice. All kinds of coffees, tea, waffles, toast and chocolate lava cake.
At least the coffee here is very good. Perfect cappuccino where your spoon stays on and ice coffees with caramel syrup. Super popular is the ‘Shibuya honey toast’ with fruit and one or two scoops of ice cream. This dessert is so big that you better share it. And that comes out of my mouth, I’m still flabbergasted. The toast is quite large and we thought the honey was a bit dominant, but in combination with fruit, chocolate sauce, and ice cream it’s not bad at all!
