Chutinit Coffee and Art

So on my way to and from work every day I had spotted a new sign along Bangsaen Lang road that invites people in for breakfast- it has a sign out front with a picture of Thai food, pancakes and coffee. So at the weekend having ran out of breakfast stuff in my apartment I thought I would go and check it out and as it is literally next door I didn’t have far to go.

I went in the shop and I said that I wanted breakfast and asked if they have a menu. The owner, who I know now to be called May, said we don’t have a menu yet but we do bacon, egg, toast… I actually didn’t find out what else they have because I decided on egg and toast and coffee.
She didn’t ask me how I wanted my eggs so I was thinking that I may get a raw egg in a bowl with toast to dip in which I have been served before somewhere in Thailand but she did ask me if I wanted one or two to which I replied “one please” and make a gesture to mean that I wanted the egg on the toast. I needn’t have worried though it was a very tasty toasted egg sandwich with really lovely black coffee and a glass of water which they bring to you when you sit down.
The shop itself is small and has beautiful wooden furniture. A little area where they make the coffee and a kitchen out back. There are t-shirts hanging on a rail and a few hats which are for sale. And I noticed some really nice light shades and wondered where she had bought them. There is also free wi-fi and a television.

When I had finished my breakfast I asked her for the bill and she said 50 baht. I was pleasantly surprised. Normally a sandwich and coffee would be over 100 baht. I went back later that day and met May again and told her I was a travel writer and asked whether I could take some pictures. I didn’t know the name of the place when I had gone there earlier and she told me that it was Chutinit Coffee and Art. Art? I wondered, and she showed me the t-shirts and hats that I had noticed earlier- they were decorated with hand paintings all done by May. And the light shades-again beautifully painted by her.

Chutinit Coffee and Art is open Mon-Tues 8.30am-8pm and Thur-Sun 8.30am-8pm and they serve breakfast, lunch, coffee and other drinks. There is also a takeaway service.
I was glad I returned and met May properly. I wouldn’t never have known about the art she does. And a little research done on her Facebook page tells me that you can learn to paint and she offers cooking lessons as well. (Maybe I will have some painting lessons myself).
So if you are in the neighborhood pop in to Chutinit Coffee and Art-the staff will welcome you with open arms plus they do great coffee!

      1. Was there in 1998. Spent time in Bangkok and Phuket mainly. The beauty of Phuket lives in my head. Anytime I sit to meditate I think of meditating on the beaches there. Truly magical. Have you always lived there?

        1. I have never been to Phuket. I have lived here since 2009 in the NE- a town called Surin. Then I went home to the UK for 2 years, moved to Bangsaen and am now living in Bangkok, which I love. Any plans to come back? 😉
