From the Siam interchange station, hop on the Silom line heading to Thonburi. Less than 25 minutes later, you will alight at the Bangwa terminal station – which is also linked to the MRT (subway) station with the same name.
Pre-pandemic, almost every weekend, classical music enthusiasts will alight here and share a taxi or take the Salaya shuttle to Mahidol University, to the beautiful concert hall that is home to the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra. A short drive away from this hall and university is The Salares – a Coffee Bar & Bistro.
The bistro serves a selection of local dishes and international favourites. The chicken burger is tall, on first impression. And the pasta, delightful. We were told the pork ribs is a signature dish here and that the pizza packs a punch. We highly recommend a second helping of their delish brownie.
The Salares has high ceilings – and expansive windows meant that lighting is never a problem for your food photography or the occasional selfies. There is an immediate laid back feel to the place too. The beautiful landscaped gardens invite you in for a scroll and more…
Weekend evenings will see live singing too. Sufficient parking space available and this is a suitable location for an evening get-together, after your classical concert nearby. Estimately 25 kilometers from Bangwa station, you are technically in Nakhon Pathom province, westward of Bangkok. This province has a lot to offer from temples to local markets and there’s plenty to do for a full day outing. The strategic location of this coffee bar and bistro makes them a good pitstop on your day of exploration too.
