As part of an effort to show not just the structure of travel (hotel reviews, airline seats) but also the color, I submit a review of a café experience worth your time in Bangkok. Perhaps Rabbits’ offers a little bit of Lewis Carroll brought to life in Thailand – a welcome addition to a city enchanting in every other way – satisfies your sweet tooth and imagination in one visit.
We’re All Mad Here
There are a few trending must-see spots in Bangkok popping up on social media recently. The Unicorn Cafe and Mo & Moshi – the ice cream shop with the infamous 22-scoop sundae – might be worth the quintessential photo and accompanying hashtag. But let me share with you a hidden little gem worth seeking out on your next visit to the Big Mango.
Perhaps Rabbits’ a delicious retreat into a scene of Alice in Wonderland.
This Way! Don’t Be Late!
Take a trip on the BTS to the Ekkamai station (Exit 1). Then a short walk or even shorter taxi over to Ekkamai Alley 10 where you just might fall down the rabbit hole. The cafe is nestled into a corner near the main road so it may be difficult to see, but you will find it across from Health Land.
Here you can enjoy a variety of coffees and cakes and snap a picture under the lights near the whimsical rabbit, or in the “library” hidden in the back of the cafe. We enjoyed the Rabbit Hole Mud Cake (140 baht) The Blueberry Egg (190 baht) and frozen drinks starting around 90 baht.
The cakes were delicious but let’s be honest, the appeal of this cafe is all about escaping reality to the Mad Hatter’s tea party and taking enchanting photos along the way.
Perhaps Rabbits is quirky and fun, but if Wonderland isn’t your cup of tea, the other shops and cafés surrounding are just as worthy of a visit. High praise has been given to the (UN)Fashion Vintage Shop and Cafe which we didn’t have time to check out on this trip, but I hope to try the next time we find ourselves in Bangkok.
Pure Magic for Lucy
When we arrived at the door of the cafe, Lucy had no idea what fairy tale would unfold inside. Once we entered I could see her eyes light up. It started with being greeted by a glass display of cakes and what three-year old wouldn’t love that? Her tea party began with a chocolate cake pop and lemonade. We wandered around the cafe together, exploring all the little details and quickly Lucy found herself getting lost into the world of Alice.
We often hear that Lucy won’t remember her travel experiences from such a young age and yet, weeks later in another country, in another cafe, she asks, “Where is Alice?”
