Ari / Chatuchak 

Cose Club  NEW 

Located on the ground level of a blue, multi-story art building is Cose Club. Here, you can enjoy a cup of coffee and some fresh- ly baked bread. The three types of bread available here are focaccia, bagels, and toast, and all of the bread is vegan and homemade. Savory highlights include their homemade focaccia with shakshuka (B180) and their butterboard smoked salmon (B270) served with homemade cream cheese arranged like it’s on a canvas.


This vibrant red restaurant, owned by the same people who own the Common Room x Ari, is reserved for the real egg master who wants to create every imaginable variant of egg-based dishes in Ari. Try the runny eggs sandwich (B195) or the scrambled eggs (B170) served with smoked salmon bread. The coffee at this location is of a very high standard; basic beverages cost B90, while specialty drinks like espresso with milk cream cost B120.

Landhaus Bakery   

Landhaus translates to “tiny house in the country.” And that’s just how entering this little German bakery makes you feel. This hidden gem delivers its own European flavor and ambiance. They provide a variety of sandwiches and a nice selection of bread, including sourdough, baguettes, and pastries. Additionally, there is an extremely reasonably priced currywurst with french fries (B220).


Here on Ari Soi 1, the minds behind the zen- like teahouse Peace Oriental have ventured into the world of croissants. Qraft is well- known for its fluffy, buttery croissants made using special Japanese flour and butter mixes that draw enormous crowds. Special fillings include a savory miso caramel and koicha (B145) while the plain starts at B75.

On a Sunday morning, nothing beats sipping a glass of champagne or white wine, and there’s no better place to do it than Bar Storia. An elegant, retro-vintage cafe and bar that combines a traditional bistro with a modern coffee shop with glossy wood panels and old green walls. There’s a large assortment of salads, Italian-style dishes, beverages and desserts. One of the greatest spots in the area for simple European flavors, try the al dente prawn penne (B290) and the oven-baked egg (B250) with a pan of italian sausage in a rich tomato stew.

Nana / Asoke  

Brainwake Cafe 

It can be tough to find a place to have a quiet breakfast in Nana—especially on Soi 4. Brainwake Cafe is a rare pro breakfast spot and cafe in the Nana whirlwind featuring both international and Asian breakfast dishes. Get something local like the Isaan fried eggs with Thai and Chinese sausages alongside minced pork (B215), or go for something heartier like the salmon eggs Benedict (B285) and the Brainwake Big Breakfast (B425) which is a full brekkie, complete with ham, potatoes, mushrooms, beans, and more.

Gigi Cafe 

This is the “little sister” version of the popular Gigi Dining Hall and Bar. For breakfast, the cafe offers a range of fresh croissants, but you don’t want to miss out on the eggs alla Fiorentina (B290) or the Gigi Breakfast (B440) with two eggs alongside home smoked salmon, Italian cooked ham, avocado mash, and smashed chickpeas. If it’s your sweet tooth you need satiated in the morning, try their ricotta hotcakes with caramelized banana, honey, vanilla cream, and mascarpone.

Iwane Goes Nature

Open since 2011, Iwane Goes Nature is still knocking out healthy breakfasts in Asoke. You can opt for the simple American breakfast (B165) of scrambled eggs with ham salad and toast or the Farmer Set, which features home fried potatoes with bacon and eggs (B135). It’s also a rare chance to get a little Korean breakfast (B165), here offering spicy Korean noodles with rice balls.

Breakfast Story NEW

Look, Breakfast Story is everywhere these days—Ploenchit, Asoke, Phrom Phong. But, now the Soi 11 crowd can get in on the action. Opening earlier this year, this favorite Bangkok spot for all-day breakfast is still serving up breakfast bites (with a few burgers thrown into the mix). It’s a big menu with everything from breakfast wraps to a three-egg omelet. And you don’t have to go in the morning; carbo load before you hit the Soi 11 clubs.


Old Town / Charoenkrung


Chutie is Baking

Having found success with her restaurant Sweet Pista, Chutima “Ae” Bovonratanachote opened Chutie is Baking as a playground to experiment with new recipes once again. One year after its launch, the cafe boasts succulent treats that will leave your sweet tooth begging for more. Must-tries include the lemon posset (B165) and various flavors of fruit parfait (B165).


Craftsman Roastery  

In its previous life, the century old European building that houses Craftsman Roastery was once used to print the Royal Gazette. Now, the retro bistro welcomes diners to try the in-house roasted mocha yuzu (B150), dirty coffee (B125), and spiced latte (B145) made from homegrown and imported beans. To pair with the drinks, opt for walnut pie (B135), creamy chicken pie (B150), or banana cake (B135).

On Lok Yun 

For those who want a little bit of nostalgia, this legendary 90-year-old breakfast spot is the perfect way to start the day. The cafe puts a Thai spin on Western style breakfast with the American breakfast (B65) but real fans will be there for the classic kanom pang sankaya, bread with Thai style egg-coconut milk custard (B28). The affordable lineup is not complete without their coffee which starts at B35.

Punjab Sweet 

Want to try something new for your breakfast run? The Phahurat Indian coffee shop offers an endless variety of Indian sweet treats. Try out the crispy and flavorful paneer dosa (B100), the fudge-like barfi bites (B15), and cut the saccharine flavors with some freshly brewed chai tea (B15).

Jok Prince 

Nothing beats a warm bowl of congee in the early hours. This restaurant in Old Town does Asian comfort food justice, marrying the base ingredients of smooth porridge with its signature smoky aroma and toppings such as century eggs and pork balls. The shop’s attention to detail uses high quality produce and in-house seasoning, making it worthregularvisits.PricesstartatB50-70 per bowl.

Chiewchan Panich 

Established in the 1950s, this is certainly one of those breakfast spots that cater hangover dishes for party-goers and the early-risers. The hidden gem also goes by the name “Thewet Boiled Rice’’ and is popular for its rare authentic Thai-Chinese cuisine. Stop by for the cinnamon braised stir fried pork intestine (B100), minced shrimp stir-fried in Chinese olives (B140), and have it with a bowl of boiled rice.


Siam / Chidlom 

Chim Chim  

This art-inspired diner is made for all-day hangouts, delivering creatively upgraded handmade favorites for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The space also holds motivational workshops and functions as a gallery exhibiting works of art by both up-and-coming and seasoned artists. The options for food and beverages are extensive, but these are our picks, the sweet and salty stax (B320) with crispy bacon, maple syrup, crispy bacon, and sunny-side- up pancakes, or the lobster rolls with lobster (B990), tiger prawns, mayonnaise, celery, lettuce, and a handmade shokupan roll for a more substantial lunch option. For a little indulgence, be sure to try the cruffins.

Eggdrop NEW

Featuring their famous premium fluffy egg sandwiches from Korea, Eggdrop Bangkok’s store has shiny chrome accents and a red-and-white color scheme reminiscent of an American diner. The store takes orders via kiosks, and we suggest the Mr. Egg (B89), which comes with a crunchy brioche, fluffy scrambled egg, and sriracha mayo. For something more filling, try the garlic bacon cheese (B129); the smell of the toasted garlic brioche alone will have you drooling. 

Holiday Pastry in Central World NEW

Holiday Pastry has opened a new branch at Central World with a “Dining Room” concept, flouting Wes Anderson vibes with its sunshine yellow color scheme, archways, and large-scale lighting. They serve an all- day hearty brunch and a dessert menu; brunch includes the New York spicy rigatoni vodka (B320) which seems to be all the craze lately (and for good reason). But save room for dessert and try their No.1 Signature Pancake or the Best French Toast Ever.

Hia Buay Ancient Noodles 

Hia Buay Ancient Noodles has been attracting office workers, celebrities, and tourists for 23 years, but the modest store recently received a boost from politicians, notably After Move Forward Party’s Pita Limjaroenrat, who ordered the Rich Tom Yum. The yentafo (Thai pink noodle soup), dry rice porridge, and braised pork kaprao are crowd-pleasers. Hia Buay also prepares dry meals for takeout, which are wrapped in traditional banana leaves to enhance the dish’s natural scent. Best of all, the restaurant is noted for its enormous portions and reasonable prices (B60-120).

Siam Brasserie 

Siam Brasserie serves a broad Thai and International menu with a Thai twist in a charming yet spacious setting. The menu is influenced by many cuisines from the founder’s grandmother, and it serves simple, no-frills meals. So check it out whenever you want to eat like you’re spending time at grandma’s.

Ploenchit / Langsuan


This popular all-day dining spot has earned a lot of praise for its Japanese take on all kinds of global brunch favorites. The gist here is Western and Eastern dishes sprinkled with a touch of Japanese sensibilities, like in the NICO NICO Breakfast—fluffy omelets sprinkled with gentle curry powder accompanied by Japanese-style braised pork belly, stir-fried shimeji mushrooms, salad, and bread. The venue also bakes all of its own pastries daily using butters imported from Germany and France and flours from Japan. Don’t sleep on their signature yudane bread (authentic Japanese-style bread, which is super soft and fluffy). With two locations, and different menu options at each, now’s the time to try this completely unique take on brunch and breakfast food.

Cafe Tartine 

For the early riser, Cafe Tartine is a perennial favorite, open an hour earlier on the weekdays. It’s a family friendly, French, breezy atmosphere. The provencal omelette (B180) comes with eggplant, zucchini, onion, tomato, garlic, and emmental cheese, but don’t forget the Tartine Avocado (B310) with fresh Avocado puree, goat cheese, walnut, and poached egg.


Tempered is Bangkok’s latest cacao obsessed cafe, all the dreams of a passionate couple. The space on Soi Ruamrudee 2 is a renovated five-storey office featuring creative baked goods. Opt for the almond croissant (B140) with light, crispy layers oozing almond cream or the generously-sized ham and cheese croissant (B165). For a creative and very sweet start to the day, try the Not a PBJ (B215) with peanut butter, jam, and a chocolate brownie.

Ecole Ducasse Café NEW

It’s not just classes and workshops at this chic spot for the next generation of chefs. This Nai Lert cafe opened with the school last year and features, as you might expect, an array of French dishes to zhuzh up your commute. Overseen by the spot’s head pastry chef, you’ll find surprisingly affordable bites here, from the croissants (B100) to the croque monsieur (B180). 

Guss Ploenchit NEW

That’s right, Bangkok’s favorite ice cream shop does breakfast now. Guss Damn Good opened this shop in September. Along with their unique ice cream flavors and ingredient mashups, this Guss Damn Good is taking things even farther with a menu with sundaes, milkshakes, waffles, coffees, and savory slides. There’s the breakfast slider (B280), which is made with steamed egg custard and soft poached eggs, veggies, ham, and dijonnaise. For something classic, get a good ol’ PB&J (B135).

Nick NEW

Tucked in Woodbury Common on Ruamrudee, Nick is a design forward, open- early spot for breakfasters in Ploenchit. Opening late last year, Nick’s chic look and big menu make it a must-try for breakfast lovers. They boast a French (B420), American (B450), and full (B480) breakfast alongside their spicy chorizo shakshuka. Pair all that with an iced yuzu matcha (B140) or a passion fruit sparkling float (B150).


 Phrom Phong

Treehouse Cafe.Bar

Treehouse Cafe.Bar is a new hidden gem in Bangkok, where you can enjoy Thai family- style dining in a venue that transports you to a tropical desert island. Share delicious dishes from their all-day breakfast, brunch, and lunch menus – a celebration of the best local produce and ingredients that are lovingly prepared – and sip their playful and seasonal beverages. Stay a little longer and relax at their treetop bar or alfresco terrace, where you can bring your furry friends along. Treehouse is the perfect spot to escape the bustle of Sukhumvit on Soi 31. It may be slightly eccentric, but it’s always fun, memorable, and affordable.

Polli’s NEW

Sukhumvit 71’s intimate cafe has become quite the rage, and the crew has finally launched their second location—this time, right in the middle of Sukhumvit. If you’re in the mood for a hearty meal, choose the Big Brekkie (B380), which comes with fried eggs, chicken sausages, smoked ham, spinach, mushrooms, and bread. Drinks-wise, consider the Black Coco (B130), which combines a shot of premium black espresso with coconut water and crunchy dates on top.

Larder BKK NEW

Chef Radek Zarbiski joined forces with chef Adrian Klonowski, formerly of Gaa, to open Larder, serving all-day sandwiches and coffee in an industrial atmosphere right in the heart of Phrom Phong. Earlier this year they launched a breakfast menu, dubbed Brekkie 2.0. Though simple the menu has depth and is infused with the chefs’ personal touches. Their guacamole topped with gooey poached egg and crispy rye crackers (B260), for instance, distinguishes itself from the regular mashed avocado by mixing it with coriander oil.

Holey Artisan Bakery 

Phrom Phong foodies, head here to grab your morning bread fix. The Bangladeshi owner, Nasirul Alam Porag, is a sourdough lover, and his unbleached flour loaves have a chewy, airy feel. After a butter croissant (B200) or beef pastrami sandwich (B800), make sure to get a slice of the dark chocolate cake (B600). The bakery also serves coffee and cold-pressed juice, which you can enjoy on the sidewalk in the deck chairs.

Kay’s (Sukhumvit 49) 

Obviously we had to include at least one Kay’s in this breakfast list. Be prepared to indulge in a chill and relaxing white-themed all-day breakfast cafe. Take a seat at one of the cool marble tables and grab the eggs Benedict prosciutto (B290) with poached egg, prosciutto, asparagus, and hollandaise sauce, or if you like a sweet brekkie lover, then you’ve got to try either the banana walnut pancakes (B270) or the ultimate french toast (B230).

BKK Bagels (Soi 33) 

It’s hard to find a better bagel joint in Bangkok, and now they’ve got a spot in Phrom Phong. Choose from a number of different kinds of bagels and schmear for B50. However, the Breakfast Epic with Bacon (B215) which also comes with gruyere, gouda, or cheddar cheese is our favorite breakfast item—that bacon is just insanely good. You can also add some plain bagels and schmear of your choice. If you want something a little higher end, try the Lock, Stock, and Bagel (B250), which has house-cured salmon.


D’ark has made a name for its quality coffee and hearty brunch food. With its dark wood furniture paired with the brand’s signature leaf-embossed steel motifs. The brunch menu (available till 6pm) features eggy dishes like the smoked salmon eggs Benedict (B450) and Nordic breakfast (B490), with smoked salmon, scrambled eggs, avocado, ricotta cheese with lemon vinaigrette. For a more substantial lunch, try the baja fish tortillas (B590) or the jumbo tiger prawn spaghetti (B690) with romesco sauce, garlic confit, and jalapeno pesto.

The most visually arresting dish has got to be the generous portion of bacon and scrambled eggs on toast (B390) drizzled with male syrup.

Nico Nico 

Coming on the scene last year, Nico Nico in Japanese means “a smile,” and the spot is decorated in a mix of Japanese and Scandinavian, you’ll find fusion comfort breakfast dishes like curry scrambled eggs (B260) with soft bacon and homemade bread. For something lighter, try their wasabi crab toast (B260) combining chunks of crab meat with wasabi mayo. Try their Signature No.1 (B110), an espresso shot made with beans from Chiang Mai mixed with icy cold milk.


This one’s a must-try for anyone who wants a distinctly Japanese brekkie.

Each comes with a soup, pickled vegetables, rice, and tamago (Japanese omelet). To drink, choose from a selection of tea-based drinks, like a hot matcha latte (B140) made with Uji green tea or an iced hojicha latte (B140).

Caffe Olives

From the minds behind the unstoppably brilliant L’Olivia comes Caffe Olives, found at the same space. The all-day brunch fare here is good for an early breakfast too, with the likes of maple bacon sausage and eggs (B320) featuring greens, potatoes, and toasted focaccia or their Italian egg shakshuka (B320). If you’re there on the weekend, opt for the focaccia eggs Benedict (B350) with poached eggs, ham, and Hollandaise sauce. Coffees start at B390, and you can grab yourself a little brioche filled gelato for that morning sweet tooth (B220)


Packed every weekend for breakfast on the “other” side of Thonglor, this space fills diners into an airy, sun-drenched spot for flat whites (B100), cold-pressed juices (B180), and egg-centric fare, all prepped with good produce and an eye for detail. Try the Egg Mikado (B320), sourdough topped with two poached eggs, cured salmon, and yellow hollandaise sauce. Don’t miss out on their “junkie” smoothies with the likes of strawberry banana date yogurt chia seed and banana espresso cacao nibs.

Earth House By The Earthling Cafe NEW 

New to Thonglor this year is Earth House, formerly Earthling Cafe, founded by Samantha Häberli. You’ll find natural, ethical, and local ingredients with little or no processing.

With another location in Sathorn, stop by for sourdough loaves (B250), baguettes (B100), and breakfast rolls (B50), all made with no commercial yeast and naturally fermented for 24-48 hours. When they say fresh, they mean fresh. They guarantee that every loaf you buy is no more than three hours old. Don’t forget to add a cold-pressed fresh juice or coffee.
