This Sunday we ventured out to a new brunch spot in Thonglor neighbourhood called Herringbone. We’ve spent a fairly long time overseas and were still highly jetlagged when we turned up (fashionably late) for our Sunday brunch, feeling rather famish. Herringbone is part of the hip and chic looking boutique hotel called Volve Hotel in Sukhumvit 53. The hotel itself has been opened for a couple of years now, but Herringbone cafe is relatively new and has only launched towards the end of 2018.

Sophisticated and Cosy
When you enter the small hotel lobby of Volve that converges into the Herringbone cafe, you walk into a light-filled space full of green plants and cosy seating spaces. The hotel unmistakably displays a boutique concept character, from the full glass pivoting door to the materials used to furnish the indoor decoration. There is a little landscaped oasis next to the cafe behind floor to ceiling windows, adding to the atmosphere of Herringbone. The interiors are contemporary yet cosy.
When our food was served, the background music played “Midnight train to Georgia”, which was a perfect tune to set the scene to our jetlagged Sunday morning brunch.

Eclectic Menu Selection
The menu is quite eclectic and consists of a good selection of classic brunch dishes like the Full English Breakfast, Eggs Benedict and Eggs Royale. There were also other Lebanese dishes like Chicken Tabouleh and Japanese lunch dishes on the menu for those who prefer something a bit more substantial. The hotel also serves buffet breakfast until 10:30am for 500++ THB per person where you can also order one dish à la carte and one beverage on top of their buffet selection.
This time we opted for the Full English Breakfast and Eggs Benedict. We think that the portion has a decent size with a good looking side salad. It didn’t come with any salad dressing so we had to ask for balsamic vinegar but that’s not a biggie. Both dishes were well presented and nicely seasoned. I’m a bit of an egg-snob when it comes to eggs benedict, and thankfully the poached eggs here are nicely done, just how I like them!

Digital Nomad Friendly
It deserves a special mention that they serve free drinking water here with your meal, which we think is a nice little touch (although the big bottle of Evian was on the menu for 130 THB in case anyone fancies it!). Great brunch and coffee go hand in hand, and they do serve a nice full flavour, well-rounded latte here. For those digital nomads out there, this cafe is excellent for your workation. Super fast Wifi (ca. 150 Mbps down, 100 Mbps up), plenty of power sockets and different seating options for you to have calls, meet with a partner, or to work on a desk-style shared table.
Very nice latte
Plenty of seating areas
Great Value for Money
Overall we thought that the food quality and the ambience were great for the price tag. We would recommend coming here for a classy Sunday brunch and a relaxing workation. In Thonglor there are obviously also plenty of cafes, spas and shopping options to spend the rest of the day, so Herringbone might be a good starting point for your city adventure.
