The Coffee Club
One of Bangkok’s most ubiquitous coffee, breakfast and all-around restaurant brands has gone all-in on breakfast with its new menu packed with homey, comfort food you can grab and go or enjoy in house. If you are an early riser and want to sit in, grab dishes like eggs Benedict (from B280), bacon cheese omelet (B260), blueberry pancakes (B250), smashed avocado on toast (from B260) with one free coffee, tea or juice (there are 13 options total) on the house for early risers who order before 11am. It’s not just Western bites though, the deal extends to all breakfast items (congee, boiled rice with prawns, boiled rice with stewed pork, Thai baked eggs), including the new khao tom sets, which come with a spread of delicious morning flavors that you mix and match (one boiled rice with four side dishes from 15 different options, B195). There are The Coffee Club locations pretty much everywhere at this point, so early risers who hate doing the dishes take note.
Locations across Bangkok. Open daily 7am-9pm. For more information visit, https://thecoffeeclub.co.th/

Don’t miss the Phet Mak Mak sourdough (kalamata olives, sharp cheddar and pickled jalapenos, B250) or the the NYP sandwich (Sloane’s beef pastrami, whole grain mustard, pickles and cheddar cheese, B400).

For an Austrian classic, get the cheese bread stick (B40), which is tangy and crisp with slightly burnt cheese. Enjoy with a piping hot Americano (B60) or a frothy cappuccino (B70).
