This small cafe is located in a narrow, blue tenement house with three floors – cozy for a small group of friends and family. Plus, it’s well-loved among the cafe hopping community for its beautiful aesthetics, so you know you’re in for a chill time.

Inside, the walls are tiled from bottom to top in blue and white, with a whale on the wall to give you a deep sea vibe.

The third floor is especially snug for customers, with tables where you’re sitting cross-legged on cushions and in pairs. The skylight lets in a bit of sunlight so that the attic floor looks just as bright up here as downstairs.

The cafe’s signature drink Butterfly Pea Latte is served as hot (฿90) complete with whale latte art, or iced (฿120) with a cinnamon stick and petals from the butterfly pea flower. Whichever you go with, you get a milky coffee that’s as soothing as its blue hue.

Pair the Cold Blue Coffee (฿150) with their Strawberry & Cottage Cheese Toast (฿200) or Blueberry & Caramel & Coffee Mascarpone (฿180) for a delightfully colourful meal.


Getting to the Blue Whale


If blue is your lucky colour or you’re looking to soothe your senses, then Blue Whale Cafe is a pleasant stop when you need a retreat from the stress of the world.

As always, we’d recommend calling ahead before visiting any establishment to make sure they’re operating normally, given the current situation.
