Whether you're looking for mall stall bites or a sit-down restaurant, this buzzing area of town has plenty of brekkie to offer.

= Open before 8am

Sarnies Roastery  New!

Sarnies has been rolling roughshod over Bangkok’s coffee scene since 2019, and their 2021 Sarnies Roastery on Soi Tonson is open for breakfast in a sun-dappled, cafe-like atmosphere. Sure, there's an all-day brekkie with avocado toast (350) and Turkish eggs (320). But, come on, it’s Sarnies. You want the Pimp my Breakfast: choose your own bread, spread, jam, meat, and veg and get breakfasting. 

34 1 Soi Ton Son, 02-003-7592. Open daily 7am-10pm. BTS Chidom


Brooklyn Baker

Found in the sois east of Lumpini, this singular dine-in gem opens early for the breakfast crowd who want their morning meal on a quiet street. There is, of course, the American Breakfast (pancakes, bacon, sausages and eggs, B250) but try the increasingly popular shakshuka (B240) or the Baker rice bowl (B210), a spicy chicken salad topped with a fried egg. To drink, try the Cafe Club Con Miel (B100)—coffee with honey and cinnamon.

Polo 3 Alley, 081-855-7090. Open Thursday-Monday 9am-5pm


BKK Bagel 

You’d be hard pressed to find a better bagel in Bangkok: quality ingredients, good bagels, and a fun menu. Have your choice of a dozen bagel types (B50) and schmear (B50), but for us the best brekkie choice is the Breakfast Epic with Bacon (B215) with a choice of gruyere, gouda, or cheddar. For something a little more fulsome, try the Lock, Stock and Bagel (B250) which features house-cured salmon.

518 Maneeya Center, 3 Phloenchit Rd., 022-54-8157. Open daily 7am-5pm. 


The Flour Shoppe 

It’s hard not to get hungry shopping with the great and the good in Central Foodhall, but if you want to sit down, the Flour Shoppe breakfast includes your standard rise-and-shine staples and a few surprises. A treat here is the breakfast biscuit with bacon, egg, and cheese (B180), and you can have an English muffin instead if you’re opposed to the crumble. For something a little more filling there’s the steak and eggs (B650) and the eggs benny with smoked salmon (B290).

Central Chidlom Foodhall, 1027 Ploenchit Rd., 091-229-0764. Open daily 8am-10pm. BTS Chidlom


Chim Chim

What’s left to be said about Chim Chim? It’s got probably the most inviting interior of any eatery in Siam, and it’s a nice mix of friendly and high-end. You probably know them for their pizza or their brunch, but this bright spot attached to Siam@Siam Design Hotel is open at 8am for a healthy breakfast, too. In addition to an array of creative pancake stacks, for a traditional breakfast, try their Hangover Brekkie (B350) for eggs bacon, black pudding, Sloane’s sausages, tater tots, sourdough toast, and sauteed mushrooms. A fan favourite here is the breakfast burrito (B330), but if you’re feeling really hi-so try the Fancy Schmancy Scramble (B400)—scrambled eggs with caviar and bottarga on fried sourdough bread. 

Siam@Siam Design Hotel, 865 Rama I Rd., Wang Mai, 02-217-3000. Open daily 8am-10pm



Of all the endless breakfast buffets in all of Bangkok, why Stock.Room? Because it’s Stock.Room. Kimpton Maa-Lai in Bangkok has a lot of dining options to be proud of, and for the early crowd, this buffet (B750) of stations and ready-to-eat dishes is on the hearty side. Go hungry, go early, and get a seat by the window. If you’re more of an a la carte sort of breakfaster, try Craft for outdoor dining and creative bites in a peaceful, green haven. 

Kimpton Maa-Lai, Soi Ton Son, Khwaeng Lumphini, Open daily, breakfast hours 6:30am-10:30am


Berthold Delikatessen 

If you’re all about the baked goods, then Berthold Delikatessen in Sindhorn Kempinski is a must try for your early morning. If you’re going to give the obvious sweets a miss (and you shouldn’t), opt for the Open Face Avocado sandwich (B250) and chase it with a vanilla black coffee (B150). 

Sindhorn Kempinski, Berthold Delikatessen, 80 Soi Ton Son. Open Daily 6:30am-7pm
