NOTE: Sadly, this cafe has already closed, or rather changed hands to become “5 on 50 Cafe”. I’ll do a full update at some point – the feel is different and they offer some food now.
This is a brand new cafe (as of January 2017) on Nimman Soi 5. It has a clean, pleasing aesthetic – brick wall, contemporary furniture with indigo accents. The owner himself greats you enthusiastically as you enter and is paying extra special attention to how the coffees are made and the guest experience, as one would expect with a new establishment.
The cafe space is one medium sized room, with “cushy” chairs and a couch on one side, and tables ready for work, study, or chatting on the other. There are five 2-tops, and one 4-top, a couch, and four comfy chairs. There is also one 2-top outside, which would be great for conversation and people watching, but not working. There is only one outlet near the tables that I can find, but if you can get that one or if you have a long lasting battery, this would be a great spot for working or reading.
The slogan for Kram Coffee is “stay kool”, which is fine, but for amusement’s sake, I think it should be Kram Coffee – “Kram It!”. It’s truly too classy of a cafe for that, though. I almost feel bad for even making that joke (almost).
