Down Soi Sukhumvit 24 — where vegan cafe and eatery Vistro Bangkok opened last year and beer bar 2+4 materialized upstairs — comes a new cafe that doesn’t specialize in caffeine or booze, but flower nectar as made by bees.
Honeyful Cafe serves beverages and desserts made from honey in a garden at the Ariston Hotel. It was opened in November by Nuttawan “Yui” Supapong, a chef who is passionate about the sweet, viscous liquid food. According to Yui, the cafe’s natural honey is sourced locally and internationally from beekeepers in the northern province of Chiang Rai, Australia and Hawaii.
The cafe’s highlights include its signature Honeyful Honey Manuka (THB185), a fresh-pressed almond milk drink mixed with honey, and the Manuka Latte (THB160), a coffee drink mixed with Australia’s famed “monofloral” honey derived from a single plant.
To pair with the drinks, find a few baked dishes such as the Yuzu Inspired Cheesecake (THB150), a cotton soft Japanese-style cheesecake that comes with a piney tang of citrus fruit, and Sqruff, square-shaped puff pastries that come with toppings such as strawberry and rhubarb honey jam, yuzu honey jam or honeyed ham (THB75 to THB95).
The venue also sells other honey-based products such as moisturizing cream, shampoo, lip balm and many more.
Honeyful Cafe is located inside Ariston Hotel on Soi Sukhumvit 24 and can be reached by foot from BTS Phrom Phong. It’s open 8am to 8pm on weekdays and 9am to 9pm on weekends.
