The Quest to find Pattaya’s best coffee (Part 1)

Psssst! Want to know a secret? Want to know where to enjoy one of the best
cups of coffee in Pattaya? Well, it’s not a secret but the name is Secret Café.
Located at the end of Pratumnak Soi 5.

Map and Contact Information:

It is a gathering place for coffee aficionados from around the area and further afield. Not really a café rather a kiosk with a few chairs and tables located in front of Tesco Lotus Express and close to Phra Tamnak Beach it is one of the best-kept secrets and serves some
of the best coffee in Pattaya.

As a purist, I drink only Espresso double shot as I feel that this is the best way
to enjoy and rate unadulterated coffee without any ‘cosmetics’ or additional

The double shot espresso at Secret Café (THB.60) is seriously one of the best in
Pattaya. It’s almost Italian style. Short, strong and smooth:-

Presentation: Classic style espresso, lush rich ‘crema’

Aroma: Dark Chocolate tempered with Caramel, syrup

Taste: Good acidity with a sharp and pleasing taste

Mouthfeel: Strong, smooth, heavy body

Aftertaste: A lasting flavour of chocolate & caramel

Rating on the MT Coffee Scale 92 points.

Secret Café proves that it is possible to make exceptional coffee even in the
simplest of surroundings. Their coffee blend is from Chiang Mai perfectly
roasted professionally ground to release all the flavour. A well trusted Bezzera
Ellisse espresso machine and wonderful service with a smile from the lovely
ladies Om and Kik. Highly rated!
