Kope Hya Tai Ke is an old style coffee shop that has been opened for more than 60 years. I accidentally found this coffee shop when I walked from Wat Suthat to Wat Ratchanatdaram.
From the photo below, you will see Wat Suthat and Giant Swing on the right of the photo.
On the day that I visited the shop, there were many customers and I had to wait in line. Well, not so long I got a table. Customers here are both local and tourist.
The coffee shop were decorated in old style. Well, for me, it looked modern in old style.
The coffee shop is self service. After getting the table, you will get the menu. Once you know what you want to order, you have to go to the counter. Then, order and pay. The staff will call your table number once the food is done.
The menu looked modern and has both English and Thai language.
My friend ordered noodle, while I ordered one of breakfast sets.
And, we both ordered the traditional Thai coffee. Mine was ordered with no sweet taste, but it was a little sweet. So, if you are on diet or do not need sweet taste, don’t forget to tell them that “no sweet taste”.
All in all, I like the atmosphere. The coffee was nice, but the food was so-so and pricey. Breakfast set is expensive and not that delicious. Well, if you love the classic old style, you might give it a try.
