Mingmitr Coffee on Sri Manglajarn
Mingmitr's tagline is "The Friendly Coffee Bar", and it holds true in that I've always felt welcomed, and comfortable to get some work done in it. This is a local coffee chain. They brew their own coffee and make a mean latte.
I've found it difficult to find details on all their locations, but have been in two - On Sri Manglajarn, and just off of Huay Kaew behind the Samudlanna stationery store.
Of the two I've been to, the Mingmitr on Sri Manglajarn is best for getting some work done, simply because there is more seating. Specifically, six 2 tops, a short bar in back with 4 seats, and a tall bar in front with 4 barstools. Outside the cafe are four more 2-tops and a larger table with room for 5 or 6. The outside tables are on the side of the cafe, not on the busy street, which makes them nicer to be at.
Their intention, as stated on the Mingmitr website, is to be: "Drink of mass friendly". I do hope they don't lose their warmth and appeal as they grow larger.
