Much better for a local cup of coffee is Sripoom, on Thanon Chakra Bonse. Located between touristy and studenty neighborhoods, the place gets an even mix of travelers and young locals. The interior is hip- with lots of gaudy colors and prints. Above the seats hangs a long black and white photograph of a Bangkok street-front, complete with traffic and the mess of telephone wires. The coffee is good, as they serve the best lattes I got in Bangkok. The drink menu at night might be even better- they serve a range of bright fruity cocktails themed to the pleasures of Bangkok.
