    This will be my tips and pictures of the Caffe Nero by Black Canyon Coffee, which is the smaller cousin of the bigger black canyon coffee, the difference lies in that Caffe Nero has more thai-italian fusion dishes than the regular Black Canyon Coffee store, it is more fast casual than coffee house and Caffe Nero sells Black Canyon Coffee Products like coffee bags, coffee mugs, tea bags and more, unlike the regular black canyon coffee house, which does not have it.

    Starbucks maybe popular in thailand, but the most popular and most number of Branches around thailand is a local Coffee House Juggernaut, the Black Canyon Coffee Company, which was only established in 1993 and since then has over 240 branches all over thailand and more than 50 branches in countries in Southeast Asia, Dubai and China. This coffee chain has two concepts, the black canyon coffee and the Caffe Nero by Black Canyon Coffee, both of which offer basically the same variety of coffee but the Caffe Nero Concept has more italian-thai fusion dishes than the regular Black Canyon Coffee and the stalls are smaller.the branch we had coffee is located in the basement level of Platinum Mall. They also have a branch at the 5th level of the Platinum Mall.

    Opens: 7:00 am to 12:00 am everyday

    Favorite Dish: they have virtually the same kind of coffee and iced blended drinks and iced teas at the regular black canyon coffee store, but they have more fast casual meals that are a combination of italian, italian thai and thai cuisines like pasta with curry and more.

    a large order of iced black canyon coffee drink is 70 baht, the black canyon iced coffee frappucino at 75 baht. Iced Capuccino and Iced Latte Large at 75 baht. Caramel Cream Frappe Large at 70 baht and Thai Iced Tea with milk at 60 Baht.

    Black Canyon Coffee: An ok coffee shop

    We had our last dinner here, just right before we head to the airport going back to Manila. I guess we aren't that adventurous with food. After having pad thai, tom yum and spicy spaghetti during our trip, in this coffee shop I had clubhouse sandwich and my friend had steak. It was just like coming home, tasting again the food you are familiar with. hehehe

    staff at this coffee shop near Pratunam are very friendly.

    Black Canyon Coffee: A Thai Teak House

    by YaaDong Written Aug 14, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have been to a few Black Cayons but this one is a little different.It's right under Khamthieng House which is a 160 year old traditional teakwood house.
    It's right around the corner from Asoke BTS & the subway .So it is easy to get to if you need a coffee,food, air-con ,or just a breather from hectic Sukhumwit road.
    The atmosphere is very chilled with lots of trees ,teak beams,spirit house,old drums and fishing equipment to be seen.
    You can also check out Khamthieng House museum and also find out about the Siam Society while you are here.

    Black Canyon Coffee: The "Starbucks" of Thailand

    by xuessium Written Nov 17, 2007

    BlackCanyonDrinks

    It has taken me this long to post it up....partly I was being lazy, partly I surmised every visitor to Bangkok must have bumped into the closest Starbucks competitor that I thought I will hop and skip by it unscathed. Besides, like Starbucks, it has its own distractors (just about everything it represents).

    Black Canyon (Thailand) Co. Ltd. was established in 1993 to operate restaurants serving food, coffee and drinks under the "Black Canyon Coffee" name and have since expanded the business overseas into a number of countries. Black Canyon also operates kiosks under the "Black Canyon X'press" name in several stations of Bangkok's elevated commuter train system (BTS Skytrain).

    You can't walk around Bangkok without encountering one. This is the closest local thing you can get to Starbucks....so if you think you can live without Starbucks for 1 day and like to try the closest local equivalent....look no further.

    Favorite Dish: I have only tried the drinks....one time or another (or when I want to hide from the stifling heat).

    I can't say they have the best coffee or drinks....but they aren't toxic sludge either. As I said....I like the air-con.....

    Black Canyon Coffee: Coffee chain...with an extensive food menu

    Black Canyon Coffee, Old Siam Plaza branch
    4 more images

    I ate at Black Canyon Coffee one lunchtime during a visit to Bangkok in September 2007.

    This coffeehouse/restaurant chain, claiming to be “The Nation’s Largest Coffee House Chain”, has branches throughout Bangkok and all over south-east Asia. I ate at the branch on the first floor of the Old Siam Plaza shopping mall on the outskirts of Chinatown.

    The drinks menu is reminiscent of that of Starbucks and other such coffee chains. You will find a large selection of coffees, espressos, lattes, cappuccinos, frappes, iced teas, smoothies, milkshakes, soft drinks, fresh fruit juices and beers.

    However, unlike most coffee chains that I’ve visited in the past, Black Canyon also has an extensive food menu.

    These range from sandwiches and salads to steaks, soups and stir fries. Some of the items I noted from the menu included beef steaks, red snapper, salmon steaks, chicken teriyaki and club sandwiches.

    There is also an extensive section of the menu devoted to Thai dishes. You can choose from a huge selection of rice noodles, soup noodles, curries, Pad Thai (noodles with prawns) and various stir fried seafood and meat dishes.

    You can find full details of the menu here:

    MENU

    Favorite Dish: I wanted to try the famous Pad Thai, but it wasn’t available when I ordered it. So instead, I opted for:

    Noodles with Prawns in Tom Yum Soup - Cost: 125 Bahts (approx. 1.90 GBP)

    With the Pad Thai being unavailable, this was the first dish I noticed that also contained noodles and prawns. The waiter asked if I would like it spicy and, familiar with the reputation of hot Thai food, I replied “quite”. I am extremely thankful that I didn’t reply “very”! The dish consisted of a hot, thick soup containing about 4 large prawns (with shells still on), mushrooms, peppers, ginger, coriander, various other spices and numerous things that I didn’t recognize either by sight or by taste. It is fair to say that this was a very hot soup – I couldn’t eat it all, and my lips were still tingling an hour later!

    A pitcher of Pepsi - Cost: 55 Bahts (approx. 0.85 GBP)

    Having ordered the hot soup, I knew that cold drink was going to be needed. I therefore ordered a pitcher of Pepsi with ice – enough for 4 or 5 glasses, but priced at the equivalent of less than 3 glasses.

    A popular coffeechain….but with the food menu of a restaurant!

    Black Canyon Coffee: Very good food

    by heryanta Updated Jul 26, 2007

    Even though the name suggest a coffee-selling establishment Black Canyon should be more appropriately categorized as a chain of restaurants due to the large amount of different food that they sell.

    I have eaten here many times and all of their rice & noodle dishes are good. They are normally located in shopping malls.
    As with other local shops $5 will be enough for lunch.

    They also have (of course) premium coffee - and this are more expensive; probably same price or slightly lower than Starbucks in the US (around $2-$3).

    Black Canyon Coffee: Great Local/Fusion Food - At Great Prices

    by saracen Written Apr 16, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Great, cheap and healthy

    More like a western coffee shop, but with an extensive menu of local foods, plus some imaginative variations such as fettucini with green chicken curry.

    The menu is pretty big and covers lots of SE Asian favourites. Oh - and the coffees are great too!

    Price wise - main courses are around $1.50

    Favorite Dish: The spicy salads are nice, but the current summer special of spicy fried rice with fried pork strips was great, the rice cooked to perfection.

    Black Canyon Coffee: You need to try it at least once

    Black Canyon Coffee is a very successful, homegrown chain of coffee houses that was established in 1993. Its coffee menu boasts a wide range of selections. Black Canyon obtains 70 to 80% of their coffee beans supply from Northern Thailand herself. The cappuccino tastes good, you should give it a try. And the cappuccino set is really chic but it is not available as a gift set, a pity! Come here for the experience.

  • Black Canyon Coffee: Vegetarian wayfaring

    by vallisathya Written Jul 4, 2005

    If you are a vegetarian, the word you need to know is “Jeh”. You can find thai vegetarian rice and sphagetti in most places. We survived on it. Wasn’t too bad. Just say “kaeng kari” – which is mild spicy otherwise you will end up eating loads of icecream after your meal which is what we did. Thai chillies are toooooooo hot.
    There are plenty of vegetarian indian restaurants in Sukhumvit area. So if you are on the eastern side of Bangkok you can probably get to a veggie restaruant at each station of the BTS.
    But if you r on the west side, then you need to go to Phahurat area to get to a pizza place.
    The Black canyon coffee - claimed to the largest coffee house of the nation, is really good for pit stops or even a good lunch. They have thai style sphagetti, but do mention that it should be mildly spicy.
