Portobello – DESIRE

The farthest out, but worth it for a relaxing atmosphere. This can be both a place to enjoy coffee and English-style tea, as well as European entrees, served on large platters. There are animals to visit, including a large, sleepy pig in its pen, rabbits, and ducks and fish in the pond.

ReGelato

Sena Nikhom road. The name comes from their homemade gelato, made from machines purchased in Italy. Years of experience in Phuket, the owners decided to move back to Bangkok and open up shop right in Sena, next to a large pond. The pond is home to many large catfish, which you can feed from a covered wooden dock. Fish food is prepared and yours for a donation of 10 or 20 baht. If you’re adventurous, you might ask them to take a boat out to get to the fish in the middle of the pond. There is a wide terrace outside with seating and umbrellas, or indoor air conditioning if you prefer. A great place to spend the afternoon relaxing, and an opportunity to feed fish.

Location: Google Maps – The map has a different name, but the coffee shop and ice cream shop is called ReGelato.
