Roast has become a complementary addition to the trendy Commons in Thonglor. With a Rustic and monochrome setting and portion sizes putting others to shame, Roast has become a firm brunch favourite in Bangkok city. Nestled on the top floor of the lifestyle mall is the open-plan casual all-day dining restaurant.
Starting with the brunch, Roast has some incredible classic options elevated by small additions.

Their fluffy Pancakes [320฿] are a superb choice with its creamy ricotta, blueberry sauce and earl grey crumble.

One of the projects we are delighted to see is the partnership with the Roots cafe, who give part of the profits of each cup of coffee go directly to coffee farmers in Chiang Mai through their collaborative efforts. Since they started, they have helped and worked with 8 coffee families across 7 different regions and 3 provinces in Thailand.
The menu changes quite often under executive chef, Johnny Liu with their sixth issue underway over their 8 years of service and during this tenure they have amassed three locations, with a grab and go service at Emqaurtier and another branch at the second Commons in Saladaeng.
