Thought Walking In
First a sigh of relief from escaping the heat – this place is well airconed!
Fill in the Blank, when entering, seemed more like a photo studio. The place was decked with bread baskets and bags all around as if the place was a 1960’s bakery.
I didn’t have my hopes up about the coffee because I haven’t read or seen much about this place on other blogs however I have passed by once or twice and had a quick look at the menu (which had a good range of food) so figured I’d give it a shot.
The menu’s provide photos of all the dishes, which I like because in Thailand the name can be something you’re familiar with but when your food arrivest it’s completely different to what you’re expecting. The photo’s are of the “actual” food too – and not something they’ve taken from Timeouts top 10 restaurants.
The range of drinks and food was good and had everything to please for breakfast, lunch and dinner including eggs/omelettes, pasta, sandwiches, desserts and more – you can check out the menu in the photo gallery.
The place had large wooden tables for friends and/or family and smaller tables which ran along a cushioned couch in a separate glassed room to side. I started with a coffee (cappuccino) and took one of the tables with the cushioned couch while I setup my laptop to get a few things done. The coffee was well presented on a wooden tray with a glass of water, sugar and spoon and had nice dash of chocolate powder on top. The foam was thick, really thick! and after spooning through the foam, I was really impressed with coffee! It wouldn’t be up there with “One Ounce for Onion” or “Ink and Lion“, but much better than your standard cafe around here.
For food I ordered the “Scrambled Eggs on Sourdough Toast With Bacon and Nurnberger Sausages” – I went for the large! The difference between the small and large was one had 3 eggs, and the other had 2 (don’t think I need to explain which one had which). The meal came out served in a pan and from first look, it seemed just like a thin layer of scrambled eggs, but when cutting into it, it was a good centimeter – inch thick! It was delicious and filling and could probably be shared between two people if you’re not after a heavy breakfast.
Nothing but satisfaction! This was the perfect start to my Sunday, A great tasty and filling breakfast and good coffee to go with it!
What I Will Remember
The good size portions of food.
Will I Go Back?
Yeah and probably within the week. This place isn’t to far from my Co-Working space so I’m keen to head back for lunch later in the week.
Fill in the Blank – 28/10 Sukhumvit 61 Khlong Tan Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110, Thailand
BTS is probably best option as it’s about a 5 minute walk from Ekkamai BTS. Basically get off the BTS – take the walkway over Ekkamai (Sukhumvit 63) and when you come down to ground level, you’ll be just about at Sukhumvit 61. Take a right and it’s about 300m up on your right (it’s opposite a place called “Counting Sheep Corner Cafe“)
Price was between 200-300 baht for a good plate of food – but the portions were quite large. You can go some lighter options like snacks and sides for between 150 and 200 baht. The Cappuccino was 85 Baht so 5-10 baht cheaper than most places.

Wifi was good, no interruptions and seemed fast.
What to Expect
Filling and tasty meals! Easy to get to by BTS.
