LIFE is Short. Drink good COFFEE. Ride good BIKE. And read good BOOKS. If a sign on the door of a cafe admonishing you to drink coffee, ride bikes, and read books doesn’t get your attention then perhaps paying a visit to Velo Cafe @ Hua Hin might not be to your liking. I mean, who really wants to sip on a tasty coffee beverage (served Hot or Cold) while enjoying the chill atmosphere, not to mention soothing music, of a cafe decorated in industrial and earth tone wood design.
Cycling books and magazines adorn the bookshelves of the cafe’s reading nook area while artwork and figurines from local Hua Hin artists cover the walls and are discreetly deposited throughout the shop. Some of the cafe’s most prominent artwork belongs to local artist Thaweesak Srithongdee, who goes by the moniker Lolay (www.lolaytoon.exteen.com).
The breakfast menu at Velo Cafe @ Hua Hin has one item on offer, a made-to-order omelet, while the sandwich menu is a bit more robust. The Smoked Salmon or J.P.E. sandwiches are sure to please. The coffee menu has all of the usual offerings and a delicious hot cappuccino will set you back 55 THB. The overall feeling of the cafe is cozy with inside seating allowing for about eight people and a covered outside seating area that will accommodate another four.
A nice benefit of visiting Velo Cafe @ Hua Hin is that the Rhythm & Books & Friends shop is just behind it, accessible via a small alleyway. Rhythm & Books & Friends is a book shop inside a small converted residence with a lovely little front garden area. The owner speaks excellent English and is a writer and photographer who stocks his small book shop with titles covering what interests him the most: Food & Drink, Art, Music, Sex, and Cycling. He has devoted one room of the small shop to music appreciation where his beloved collection of LP records are played amidst what can best be described as a chill-out zone, complete with colorful floor pillows. Rhythm & Books & Friends is open every day (except Tuesday) from 9:00am-6:00pm.
