Mother Roaster cafe near Hua Lamphong MRT
The area around Yaowarat and Charoenkrung Road is home to a big Thai-Chinese community with old-school restaurants and cool cafes and bars hidden at every corner.
A vintage cafe hidden in an old house at Talat Noi named Mother Roaster has been making waves as of late, and for a good reason. This store serves drip coffee created by the coolest 70-year-old barista around, who gives the cafe its wholesome name.
Hidden among auto parts stores in Talat Noi district
Talat Noi is a small community packed with family-owned industries and auto parts stores which are mostly operated by Thai-Chinese families.

When walking through the area’s small alleys, you might not expect any cafes or even an interesting spot around there. But we’re here to bring you to a hidden gem that cafe hoppers shouldn’t miss.
From Hua Lumphong MRT, map your route to San Chao Rong Kueak alley and look out for an old house with a cute graffiti mural of Mother Roaster on the wall.
Step inside to see a pile of abandoned auto parts and make your way up to the vintage cafe located on the 2nd floor.

Have a chat with Grandma Pin
The barista behind the counter is Grandma Pin – the 70-year-old barista and the owner of the store.
Iced Latte On The Rocks (฿110) is the signature item served here, with only one ice ball to avoid disrupting the rich taste of the coffee.
If you are tired from walking around, Black Honey Lime (฿80) is a great choice, offering a mix of coffee and lime together with fizzy tonic for a refreshing punch.
A worthy spot for cafe hoppers and Instagrammers
This vintage coffee cafe is Instagrammable all around, with different photo spots a stone’s throw away from the front door. You can get a picture with the several street murals on the walls and rugged car parts peppered along the alley.
Be sure to drop by and pay Grandma Pin a visit when in the area!
