Situated right in front of Thonglor Soi 15, J Avenue or Villa Market combines all of the conveniences when it comes to grocery shopping, getting some dessert, or making a quick withdrawal at the ATM - whatever you need done, you can do so just by visiting J Avenue. The space itself is rather open and brings with it a sense of ease and despite the numerous options available, no pretense whatsoever.
J Avenue boasts exposed roofs, shady trees, and lots of natural sunlight. While the main attraction might be the Villa Market where the area's expats and locals get to stock up on their favorite overseas groceries, from cartons of Cornflakes to six packs of Corona. Fresh produce, including organic fruit and veg, imported meat and fish, and a fairly decent range of bakery items, along with an extensive wine selection is also offered.
Besides grocery shopping there are a plethora of restaurants and cafes for lovebirds to spend their time together, or for friends looking to catch up, or for a family to spend a nice day out together. Whatever the occasion, there’s something for everyone - from Asian to European, light meals to full-on feasts, J Avenue is just where to go, no plan needed, just head on over.
Start the day right with your favorite cup of coffee - hot or iced - at KOF, where you can grab some pastries to accompany your beverage of choice. Not only that, it is very Instagram-friendly, snap a pic for your daily post or tease your followers with relentless Insta Story uploads. If you do visit, don’t forget to try the Yellow Americano!
As for food choices, you are spoilt for choice with a scrumptious selection from Bonchon Chicken, Korean home-made poultry dishes, along with other accompanying dishes that are just as delicious. It’s perfect for anytime of the day and suits varying hunger levels and budgetary restrictions.
Another choice is Greyhound Cafe, where international and local dishes are served up alongside an extensive selection of appetizers, entrees, mains, and desserts that are perfect for a meal with the guys, where no one is in a rush, and you’d like to savour the various flavour profiles that will definitely come your way.
It is located opposite some really cool bars, so feel free to fill up on some food or to chill out before painting the town red at the nearby 72 Courtyard!
