Breakfast and brunch in Bangkok: Our favorite cafes

Bangkok is not exactly known as a breakfast hotspot. There are two reasons for this: The locals swear by warm soups in the morning. And guests usually help themselves to the sumptuous hotel breakfast. But where to go if you’d rather have breakfast in a cool café?

We’ve found the best cafés for breakfast & brunch in countless trips to Bangkok in Bangkok and show you our favorites in this article. So if you’re looking for a hip cafe in Bangkok or want to know where to get avocado toast and açai bowl, then you’ve come to the right place on our travel blog.

1. Luka Bangkok One of our favorite cafes in Bangkok. In the very hip Luka there is not only an excellent breakfast, but the ambiance is really great. Luka Bangkok is a kind of concept store: the café is located in an interior design and furniture store.

Breakfast is served at Luka all day. On the menu you will find everything you would expect in a hipster café: from the Açai-Bowl to Shakshuka everything is available included. The coffee also tastes very good.

The only downside: the prices are almost at European level. For two breakfast dishes and two cappuccinos we paid 950 baht (ie over 25 Euro).

More information about breakfast at Luka Bangkok Address: 64/3 Thanon Pan, Bangkok (There is now also a second location near BTS station Thong Lo.)

Arrival: BTS to Surasak (about 5 minutes walk from there)

Prices: rather upscale – for two we 950 baht (= over 25 euros).

2. Toby’s In the hip Toby’s, expats meet for a cozy coffee, breakfast or to work. Here more English is spoken than Thai and you might think you’ve ended up in Melbourne.

The café has a very cool interior (lots of plants and a lot of wood), but depending on the number of guests, things can get a little hectic at times. The menu is Australian inspired: There is avocado toast, granola & Co. The coffee is also good.

The prices are not very cheap by Bangkok standards: We paid for two breakfast dishes and two cappucino 801 Baht paid, so converted over 22 Euro.

Arrival: BTS to Thong Lo (from there approx. 10 minutes walk)

Prices: rather ho ben – the two of us have 820 baht (= over 25 euros) paid

3. Rocket Coffeebar Bangkok The Rocket Coffeebar is a very friendly, small café. As the name suggests, the focus here is on coffee. And it tastes really good here. By the way, there are now several locations in Bangkok: We visited the “regular branch” in Silom.

In addition to good coffee, the Rocket also has many breakfast dishes, including Açai Bowl, porridge and sandwiches . All in all a highly recommended cafe.

Arrival: BTS to Chong Nonsi (from there approx. 10 minutes walk)

Prices: rather upscale

4. (Not just) another cup Another hipster store is (not just) another cup. It is located in Silom (near the aforementioned Luka Cafe). In our opinion, the café is run with a little less attention to detail than others, but we can still recommend it.

The menu is more extensive than in all other cafés: the breakfast menu alone is so extensive that it is difficult to decide. There is, for example, avocado toast, muesli, an açai bowl, but also Mexican or Moroccan-inspired dishes. Countless hot dishes (pasta, soups, salads) are also served at lunchtime.

Personally, we don’t like the atmosphere here as much as in comparable cafés. But the prices are on a similar level: The two of us have 801 baht Paid.

Getting there: BTS to Chong Nonsi (about 5 minutes walk from there)

Prices: rather upscale – for two we 900 Baht (= over 22 euros) paid

5. The KAFE One café you probably won’t read about anywhere else is the KAFE. We stumbled across this quite by accident during our first stay at Companion Hostel as it is almost next door. Since then, KAFE has become our first port of call for good coffee in the Wongwian Yai district.

Unlike all the hipster shops in our blog article, KAFE is very authentic to. In other words, the café is run by Thais. Nevertheless, the coffee tastes surprisingly good.

Unfortunately, KAFE does not offer a real breakfast (apart from the croissants and other sweet things from the display case). For coffee and cake it’s definitely worth a visit. Very cool leather goods from the surrounding manufactories are also sold in KAFE.

Getting there: BTS to Wongwian Yai (about 5 minutes walk from there)

Prices: rather cheap
