Coffee Old City is a popular restaurant in Ayutthaya thanks to its convenient location, as it is located on the opposite side of the famous temple Wat Maha Tat, and the Western-friendly food and drink options. As it’s such a popular spot for breakfast and lunch, I decided to write a review about it.
As said, Coffee Old City in Ayutthaya is located right across the street of Ayutthaya’s most famous temple. The street is called Chikun Road, a street where you can find several great Thai restaurants. Coffee Old City is a popular place among tourists as the menu offers a tourist-friendly Thai food and several international dishes. With tourist-friendly I mean not too spicy curries, a variety of fried rice and stir-fries. The international dishes consist of a variety of pasta, sandwiches, Western breakfasts and croissants. If you are looking for more authentic Thai restaurants in this street, I would recommend you to visit one of the following restaurants: Long Lex Noodle (famous for its boat noodles), Burinda (serves amazing Pad Thai) and Somtum Sukanya (specialized in papaya salads and serves amazing grilled beef).

So far I hope I didn’t scare you away from Coffee Old City in Ayutthaya. It is a popular restaurant for a reason. The restaurant looks nice, the staff is friendly, the service is prompt and the coffee is great. What about the food? There are two Thai dishes we tried that were really good. The first one was the Phanaeng Curry with Rice (89 THB). The curry is served with plenty of chicken and stir-fried vegetables as well. The Tom Ka Kai (129 THB), which is coconut-based chicken soup, was also delicious. The soup has plenty of flavour without being too spicy. The dish that stood out compared the rest was the Spaghetti Green Curry (89 THB). It was herby, plenty of seasoning and the right amount of spiciness. Similar to the Phanaeng Curry, it was served with stir-fried vegetables, such as sugar snaps, corn and eggplant.
We also tried the Simple Breakfast. For 119 THB, it’s a decent breakfast, but compared to Western breakfasts in Europe, I would say there is room for improvement.
Overall verdict: if you are looking for something convenient and Western-friendly food during your temple-hopping trip in Ayutthaya, Coffee Old City has plenty to offer. I do believe that there are more exciting restaurants located nearby Wat Maha Tat. The restaurant is open from 08:00 until 17:30, making it a popular place for breakfast and lunch. Coffee Old City is closed on Sunday.
