Cup Etc – Bangkok

Cup Etc. Interior
Interior decoration of Cup Etc.

Cup Etc. is a small coffee and ice cream shop in the Raintree complex on Asoke Road, near the Petchburi intersection. They came to my attention through Twitter with ice cream flavor creations like ham & cheese. That concoction was off the menu on my visit, but they did have some others that looked interesting. The special flavors change every few weeks. I tried a few and ended up with a scoop of plain vanilla. It had small flecks of real ground vanilla bean in it, and was rather good.

The coffee at Cup Etc. was typical what’s available around Bangkok these days. The beans were from a major local supplier – it’s gotten so I recognize the taste of their blend – and the cappuccino was competently made, if not spectacular. They have free wi-fi and several different seating options for working or relaxing. If it wasn’t for the slightly out-of-the-way location, Cup Etc. would be a good place to work.

Cup Etc. is in the Raintree development, a cluster of small restaurants and shops on Asoke Road next to the Rutnin eye hospital. The nearest subway station is Petchburi. Open daily except Sunday. Check the Cup Etc. Facebook page for details (mostly in Thai only).
