Agalico Garden & Tea Room
The Bangkok summer is finally upon us in all its sultry glory, so there’s really no better time to indulge in a little p&q away from the bustling city. But for those busy souls who simply cannot get away, head instead for Agalico Garden & Tea Room, where your lush, green respite awaits just a hop and a skip from Sukhumvit Road.
Gliding through Agalico’s double doors is akin to entering a parallel world of crisp white, airy bliss where people sip tea and chatter delicately in an ‘English Garden’ setting of floor-to-ceiling conservatory windows, potted ferns and wicker chairs, all courtesy of designer ML Poomchai Chumbala.
The lavish cakes on display are enough to tempt the most fastidious calorie-counter, but as English tradition dictates, warm and buttery scones are the pinnacle of Agalico’s afternoon tea set, served with jam and clotted cream, while their selection of imported teas can be enjoyed either piping hot or laden with ice.
Oh, but there’s more... beyond the salon awaits the verdant and bosky garden swelling with aromatic plants, babbling water features, Balinese sculptures and dotted with garden chairs perfect for enjoying a pot of tea and a Jane Austen classic. Keep an eye out for the resident white cat who blends in so perfectly with the decor, and arrive early to sample the full array of goodies. Heaven can’t wait!
