Bangkok's Best Child-Friendly Restaurants

Be it kitschy, pastel-hued cafes championing sugary spoils or convivial community spaces buzzing with fams, Bangkok's foodie scene is a wonderland for even the teeniest travellers. Here are a few of our fave kid-friendly restaurants. 


Grab a cuppa at Kuppa, the perennially popular, relaxed brunch and java joint run by local gal (and self-confessed coffee-addict) Robin. The airy wood ’n' metal semi-open space is dominated by a roaster, plus there's a gallery and puds galore. Sprogs can enjoy a fresh fruit juice, milkshake or smoothie; frazzled parents might want to sip one of the excellent wines...


Attracting an expat clientele, Cafe Tartine, a light, bustling Gallic honeypot serving croques, quiches and mix-your-own salads. Bread, cakes and pastries are baked on site daily; there’s also a delicious array of sandwiches, salads, soups and homemade dressings – plus that fragrant rotisserie chicken. The kids’ menu is good enough to satisfy even the fussiest of eaters. Book ahead on weekends.


Mr Jones’ Orphanage has a daft name and an even sillier fitout (children's playground meets high church), but we challenge anyone – whatever their age – to resist Custard Cow’s Poo or Chocky Mud Pie. There are baked goods galore and moreish milkshakes – so you can just about forgive the church pews and swinging teddy bears. 251/5 Thonglor Soi 13. +6621852378. 


Cue our favourite horned emoji: Unicorn Cafe is a candy-coloured palace inspired by My Little Pony. This fun-loving wonderland doesn’t stint on kawaii, but if you can stomach the Pepto-Bismol-pink interiors, you’ll be rewarded with delicious sweet treats (pastel-pretty ones, but natch). Throw dignity to the wind and pose with a cuddly unicorn...

Little Pea Commons is a friendly community space replete with a tots-tailored menu courtesy of the gourmet gang behind Roast. Your nippers can also pick up some new life skills thanks to the Little Lifehackers sessions; there’s also a drop-in art and play space and a studio room stocked with toys and scheduled activities. Forward-thinking.
