On Friday, my colleagues N and J asked me to join them for cakes at After You Dessert Cafe. It was a scrumptious offer best savoured with fellow girls—my husband often turns up his nose at desserts and things saccharine—so I readily accepted their invite. We headed to the outlet at Siam Paragon, and it was already packed with high school and university students on a late Friday afternoon. We had to wait around 10 minutes before getting a table, so I’d imagine that queues would get much longer once the office crowd knock off for the weekend.
We finally decided on a Tiramisu dessert as well as the signature Shibuya Honey Toast (THB165), which is a thick piece of toast that comes loaded with two scoops of vanilla ice cream and whipped cream (strawberries are optional). Drizzle some honey on top of the toast to make it an ultimate sinful treat. A word of caution though: the toast’s probably too big and sweet to eat by oneself, so it’s best to share it together with dessert-loving company. Overall, the desserts are yummy and once they arrive on the table, I think most people will have to exercise some self-restraint to not tuck in the desserts ravenously and say ‘after you’ to friends.
