Breakfast Done Right

August 17, 2019

Sukhumvit Road is one of the major highways in the city of Bangkok. It is like what EDSA is to Manila sans the extraordinarily grueling traffic and heavy pollution. A cluster of shopping malls, restaurants, and residential areas can be made out in this part. And, when an area is flocked by many, dinning surely behooves as an abundant facet. Food and drinks of all sorts are experiences not to be missed in the country. These experiences offer a unique kind of flair of the modern and the traditional, whether you are buzzing for breakfast or elevenses, chowing on a big lunch, or retiring to a comforting tea or dinner. As we steered towards our last hours in the lovely city of Bangkok, we stopped at a cozy, Japanese-inspired specialty coffee bar, Hands and Heart, to relish in our last full meal.

Hands and Heart was highly recommended by most Bangkok-based café hoppers I contacted on Instagram. They are known for their clean and minimalist space spurred from Teshima Art Museum in Japan, with monochromatic elements and with a Zen verve. It boasts itself as a coffee community in a town with neighborly atmosphere. Above all, their coffees and breakfast finds are favorably commended by both locals and tourists for the quality and taste. The people behind the shop follows a principle of appreciating and valuing the synergy among farmers, roasters, baristas, and their customers. Their beans are sourced from both local and international producers, like Coffee Collective and Timweldel Boe. These are, in turn, crafted to perfection through hand brewing of your choice, from Aeropress, pour-over to Chemex. Other gastronomic selections in the café include white coffees, cold brews, coffee kombucha, sodas, teas, shakes, herbal drinks, sandwiches, cakes, pastries, and breakfast and brunch dishes.


What I Got for Breakfast?

Ham. Seared ham served with toast, scrambled eggs, and lettuce salad dressed with vinaigrette.
Tuna Sandwich. Grilled wheat bread filled with homemade tuna paste and served with seasoned cherry tomatoes.
Clean Hands. An impeccably delicate fusion of coffee, caramel, and milk.
Red Velvet Cake. Two layers of crimson red chocolate cake filled and then frosted with cream cheese.



Items in the coffee bar emblazon the words “Let’s start making with your heart, then your hands will roast all the rest!” a beck of their rewarding drive in finding and making the extraordinary in the ordinary. It is a conspicuous demonstration of all the craftsmanship from the hands and the passion from the heart that they pour into every drink and every dish they proudly serve. Lighten up your mood with a breakfast done right at Hands and Heart Coffee, every day from 7:00 AM to 9:00 PM. They are situated at 33 Ascella Condo, Soi Sukhumvit 38, Watthana District, Bangkok, Thailand.
