[Day 3] Afternoon Tea At Agalico, Bangkok

Agalico has been around for over a decade and it is owned by Thailand's most prominent landscapist and interior designer, ML Poomchai Chumbala, whose famous works include the exquisite gardens of Mrigadayavan Palace in Hua Hin. Other than in-door dining, Agalico also has a well-designed topical garden with gazebos, siting area, birds, flowers, fountain and etc for guest to enjoy an idle afternoon with exquisite tea and desserts.

After our visit to Siam Ocean World we decided to take a train ride to Thong Lo where Agalico is just 5 - 7 minutes walk away from the station.   I have being looking forward to visit this cafe ever since my brother shared his photos with me during his last visit.

We reached there on a Sunday afternoon around 3.00 pm and most of the tables (in-door) were occupied by their local Thais and tourists. Upon entering, I fell in love with this beautiful English like designed cafe with mainly White and Blue as it's themed colour. 

While looking around the cafe, you might even notice most of the furniture and accessories have price tags attached to it because the owner also has a furniture store next door which enable visitors to purchase items that are on display in the cafe.

Although Agalico might not have a huge selection to offer on their menu, but they managed to keep it simple and good with cakes, scones and quiches that are freshly made daily and cost around 150THB (SG$6.00) to go with their fine range of import teas (coffee is available too).

We saw quite a good selection of cakes that day like Blueberry Cheesecake, Orange Cake, Chocolate Cake, Coffee Cake, Tarts and etc. And since we are going for buffet dinner in the evening, we decided to settle for just 2 sets of  "Cake and Tea" to share among the five of us.

By spending a weekend afternoon at Agalico reading a book, catching up with friends or family to enjoy a cup of coffee/tea is simply divine. Moreover I am sure it would be great to reward yourself with a few hours off time away from the busy city life too.
