While Eiah Sae also gets mention in the Eating and Drinking section of any guide, this atmospheric gem deserves a visit as a sightseeing stop as well. If you are looking for authentic, this is the real deal. Over 60 years old, Eiah Sae has been churning out the owner's great grandparents' coffee recipe to an endless array of chain smoking regulars, ranging from old Chinese men to hip young couples looking for an excellent cup of joe. With its Art Deco purple walls, vintage photos of the Thai king playing the saxophone as a young man, and 25 baht cafe Boran (old style coffee), you can't go wrong here. Even if you aren't a fan of the strong coffee laced with plenty of sweet condensed milk (no, they don't do espresso or cappuccino here) it is still worth coming just for the ambience.
101-103 Yaowarat-Padsai Rd
- Daily 4am-8:30pm
- Chinatown/Yaowarat's Best Attractions: "It can be slightly confusing to find Eiah Sae. Best to go to Yaowarat Rd from Hualamphong Station, then walk to the corner of Padungdao and Yaowarat (where all the seafood corner outdoor restaurants are). Turn left (towards the river) on Padungdao, then left at the next corner, and half a block down on the left is the cafe."
