A vintage-style cafe has brought Old World vibes and new energy to an overlooked Ratchathewi alley.

Opened just three weeks ago, Piccolo Vicolo (“little alley” in Italian) is part of the Galile Oasis space – a revitalized commercial building that houses a hotel, art space, theater and cafe. The interiors are all brushed concrete and shabby walls, speckled with vintage furniture, exposed beams, and potted plants.

Try the specialty: green-topped matcha coconut water (THB140), or something simple like a piccolo latte (THB100) made with your choice of light- to medium-roast beans.

Coffee aficionados should look to the Artisan menu, which offers beans from Brazil, Laos and Thailand, or Lively for Ethiopian and Colombian beans. On the side, order the lemon tart or Basque cheesecake with raspberry sauce (THB140 each).

Piccolo Vicolo is located on Trok Wat Phraya Yang, or Banthat Thong Road. It opens from 8am until 4pm every day except Tuesday.
