Set inside a renovated 60-year-old jewerly’s shophouse is Charoenkrung’s latest sweet tooth treasure trove. Open a little late for most breakfasters, inside, you’ll find Chutima “Ae” Bovonratanachote from much-loved cafe Sweet Pista baking spellbinding treats like fruit parfaits and tartlets.

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.

Toast and steamed bread options abound, but for your java, don’t miss the heritage black coffee with custard cream (B75).

Siri House has quickly gained a reputation as one of the better high-end eateries north of Ploenchit, hosting a triumvirate of Quince, Jaqueline, and Luka. While the brunch gets all the attention, before the bubbly crew gets their claws in, pop around to Luka to crunch into their Raclette (290 baht), but the must-have here is the Luka Breakfast Burrito (B330).

Aroon Cafe NEW
Half furniture showroom, half cafe, Aroon’s owner is the third generation of a furniture-making family, so his cafe is decorated with his own brand. If you like what you see, buy it. But it’s not just the furniture, try their signature coffee creations, like the Lanna Tonic Espresso (B135) that mixes blended coffee with tonic water and longan syrup, or the Aroon Sunrise (B145), an affogato that uses Thai tea ice cream. For something to fill your stomach, have the cruffin, a croissant and muffin, (B145).

This all-day breakfast spot is definitely underrated, serving higher quality bites than their prices. Whatever you want for breakfast—whether it’s a full greasy breakfast for your hangover (Brainwake Big Breakfast, B400), or a comforting Thai choice like khao tom (B155). Coffee starts at as little as B55 baht for an espresso, but we really love their Piccolo Latte (B65). Don’t forget to try their homemade baked goods or gelato—that’s not on the menu.

The new location is better and bigger, including an outdoor yard for kids and dogs to run around. You don’t get many places in Bangkok brave enough to serve chicken and waffles, but Chu is one, try them with whipped butter and topped with bourbon-spiced honey (B300). Not your cup of tea? Try the Egg White Frittata (B320) that comes with smoked salmon, mozzarella, cherry tomato, balsamic onion, and rocket. Coffee starts at B90 for an espresso or B120 for a flat white.
18/1 Sukhumvit Soi 31, 091-545-4847. Open Wed-Sun 8am-9pm; Mon 8am-9pm

If you’re eating in, you can have everything from bacon quiche (B149) to Mountain Crepe, a savory crepe filled with Raclette cheese, speck ham, and potato (B199).

75/1 Sathorn Soi 10, 02-635-3464. Open daily 7am-6pm. BTS Chong Nonsi
The name has nothing to do with the capital of Japan; this latest cafe is all about putting a new spin to Thai street snacks. The place rolls out khanom tokyo (a flat thin pancake rolled and stuffed with varieties of fillings) and fills them with unusually surprising combinations—think salmon and truffle cream (B105)—while the standard flavors like Thai custard cream and pandan cream run B60. Pair them with dirty (B90) or yuzu espresso (B150) to get your day going.
Yen Jit Soi 8. Thung Wat Don. Tel. 063-615-5283. Open daily 8.00-18.00
At first glance, this cramped Chinese spot in Nanglinchee may not look like much, but once you see all the awards and certificates hanging around the walls, you’ll realize you’ve come across one of the city’s proper dining gems. Hong Kong-born chef Yip brings a ton of experience and expertise from his days at Shangri-La Bangkok’s Shang Palace and serves his shumai and xiao long pao piping hot each day.

Popular Hua Hin shopping center Plearnwan came to Bangkok with Plearnwan Panich. The vintage and industrial hints courtesy of galvanized steel and reclaimed wood don’t detract from a pretty polished feel overall. The food is old-school: Thai snacks and breakfast bites such as khai luak (half boiled egg, B40), steamed bread with egg custard (B60), or roast duck in a bun (B110).
Plearnwan Panich, Thonglor Soi 13, 084-541-4565. Open daily 6am-7pm
Roast remains high on most brunch-goers’ checklists, which means that, come the weekend you can face some crazy queues. It’s with good reason, too.

Australian Michael Conkey’s farmers’ market favorite turned hidden Ekkamai enclave is the perfect spot to start your day with a daily-baked crusty baguette (B120) or buttery brioche (B380). What sets the place apart from your Amantees and your Maison Jean Phillipes, however, are unbeatable Aussie staples like sausage rolls (B120) and meat pies (B180). We’re also partial to the plump meatballs (B180/4pcs)—perfect for sandwiching between a ciabatta (B160). Keep an eye out for recurring picnics.
