“Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” – Roald Dahl

As a lover of fantasy fiction – yes,  fairies, mermaids, dragons and elves… I can get a tad carried away when it comes to thinking about the existence of magic or the lack thereof.

Fortunately for me (and for everyone else who’d love if magic existed), there are places we can go to – to experience a magical time.

While no wands were waved – these enterprising cafe owners have created some truly magical spaces that might just remind you of that enchanted forest you’ve read about in fairytales.

Fairies and elves might not exist (or do they?), but these incredible cafes definitely do.

So if you’re looking for something a little out of the ordinary to do – go find the magic in Bangkok and step into one of these enchanted forest cafes!

Besides being hidden in a flower market, the café also requires you to walk through a flower shop before chancing upon its beauty – decorated from floor to ceiling with natural flowers, crystals, branches and everything magical (like beautifully detailed ceramics which are also on sale!)…

They serve hearty, Mediterranean stews to warm the body and the soul, so be sure to try the Shakshuka with Chorizo or the Cilbir. Both dishes have poached eggs that come with bread for dipping.

If you’d like to have an alcoholic drink to wash down your food, the Quince has a drinks menu that has both ‘retro’ and ‘modern’ drinks. ‘Retro’ cocktails include the Old-Fashioned and the Quince Vesper.

However, if you’d like to stay sober, why not try some of their cold-brewed tea from the Tea Atelier menu? The Ceylon Rose is a popular choice.
