Leafy Soi Yenakart is right now one of our favorite spots for brunch in the city thanks to the Yarden complex, while between the touristy stretches of Silom you can still find an amazing cup of coffee.

Ceresia Coffee Roasters

Owned by a Thai-Venezuelan family, this specialty coffee shop sells single origin and house blended coffee sourced from a variety of farms worldwide, roasted in small batches. Try the filter coffee of the day or a flat white along with a slice of carrot cake and freshly baked pastries. Also make sure you buy some beans to take home. Just be sure to ask the barista for brewing recommendations.
Tisco Tower, 48/2 Sathorn Rd.,098-445-1992. BTS Sala Daeng. Open Mon-Fri 8am-5pm; Sat 9am-5pm.
Other branch: Sukhumvit Soi 33/1, 098-251-4327

Coffee Craftsman x Yarden

Set in a 70-year-old wooden house dating back to the Rama 7 era, this Yenakart neighborhood favorite wows you from first glance. The cafe highlights beans by local micro roasters, with two house signature blends: Artisan (Thai, Colombia and Guatemala) and Craftsman (Thai, Brazil and Ethiopia). The menu features various avo-toast options along with some solid pizza (get the chorizo and portabello mushroom), but next door’s Akart Bistro is a better bet for a proper lunch date.

Coffee Craftman x Yarden, 30 Yenakart Rd., 02-249-0180. Open daily 7am-7pm

Kumi Restaurant & Healthy Corner

The superfood-laden menu (antioxidant this, quinoa that) comes in a space that’s minimalist and vaguely industrial, but the neighborhood expats who favor this local brekkie hot-spot usually sit on its spacious terrace. Wraps, sandwiches, pastas and risottos are joined on the menu by a “Thai corner” and various protein-forward mains, but Kumi is at its best when the onus is on fresh ingredients—vegetarian millefeuille and grilled prawns with spiced eggplant.

71/2 Sathorn Soi 10, 02-635- 3673. BTS Chong Nonsi. Open Wed-Sun 9am-10pm; Mon 9am-10pm

Everyday by Karmakamet

Inside this store's quaint, wood paneled facade, you'll find the most charming branch of Bangkok's top aromatic products brand. Going beyond home and body fragrances, this space doubles as a coffee shop where cheesecakes, iced macha frappe and cold lattes are the orders of the day. The shop also sells tableware, pillows, napkins, bags and T-shirts from cool brands like Container and The Sleeveless Garden.   

1/F, Yada Building, Silom Rd., 02-237-1148 BTS Sala Daeng. Open daily 10am-10pm


This cafe’s focus on light fare (salads, sandwiches) and coffee has made it a favorite with Sathorn’s busy professionals. On the menu is down-toearth comfort food like breakfast burritos; grilled cheese and sauteed musroom sandwiches served with raspberry ketchup; and the “sloppy meatball sandwich” with fresh mozzarella, roasted garlic, sweet marinara and a brioche bun. Delightful decor comes courtesy of Casa Pagoda, with whom it shares its lofty and chic Pan Road dwellings.

Casa Pagoda, 64/1 Pan Rd., 02-637-8558. BTS Surasak. Open Mon-Fri 10am-7pm; Sat-Sun 9am-7pm

(Not Just) Another Cup

Two stories of airy daytime-friendly space deal in a familiar combination of egg-focused dishes, prettily poured coffee and cold-pressed juices. Comfort food like fresh pasta and shakshuka sits alongside lightweight muesli bowls and salads. Neighborhood families also drop by on weekends for the decadent French toast.

75/1, Sathorn Soi 10, 02-635-3464 BTS Chong Nonsi. Open daily 7am-7pm

Printa Cafe

Tucked in a small alley behind Wat Kaek, Pan Road’s bright white cafe doubles as a glasses showroom. Order up an all-day breakfast or a filling plate of clam spaghetti, then browse the collection of designer eyewear from Glazziq while you wait. The kitchen offers classic dishes with some flavor twists like the “healthy Benedict,” which features poached eggs on smashed avocado and toast, topped with Sriracha sauce.

36/2 Pan Rd., 095-542-4575 BTS Surasak. Open Fri-Sun 7:30am- 6pm; Mon 7:30am-6pm; Tue 7:30am-6pm

Rocket Coffeebar S.12

Abundant light, warm wood tones, chrome coffee machines and glossy magazines are just as charming as the brunch dishes. Get the eggs Benedict in a wonderfully rich hollandaise sauce or the openfaced Scandinavian sandwiches—and arrive early if you want a seat at the marble kitchen counter.

149 Sathorn Soi 12, 02-635-0404 BTS Chong Nonsi. Open daily 7am-8pm. Other branch: Sukhumvit Soi 49, 02-662-6638

Size S

Sathorn was like the coffee hinterlands before this pint-sized cafe opened with its cleansing decor of white tiles and succulents. Baked dishes come with the gimmick that all portions are tiny, but there’s one thing this place is very big on: flavorful coffee. Take your piccolo latte to go as there’s little space to sit in, and grab a pack of the delicious house blend while you’re at it.

5/25 Soi Ngam du phli, Rama 4 Rd., 02-286-6117. MRT Lumphini. Open Mon-Sat 7:30am-6pm
