Health-conscious folk should head to Simple for their morning feed. The organic café offers delicious dishes made using seasonal produce sourced from local farms. The eco-friendly and sustainable menu includes fare like eggplant shashuka, coconut clam soup, various frittatas, French toast, and a crispy bacon corn hash, which comes with two eggs on top and bread on the side. There’s a wide selection of freshly squeezed juices too, and everything comes beautifully presented to really make your mouth water in anticipation.

Siam Tea Room

Located within the high-class Marriott Marquis Bangkok Queen’s Park hotel, you know that any meal you have at the Siam Tea Room will be top notch. Settle down in elegant surroundings to dine on waffles, scrambled eggs with pork sausage, or a traditional Thai-style breakfast of prawn omelette. Crisp and colourful salads include herb chicken with papaya salad and sticky rice, spicy eggplant with pork and boiled egg, and spicy glass noodles with pork and prawn. A wide assortment of Thai dishes is also available.

Iwane Goes Nature

Iwane Goes Nature is a Sukhumvit brunch joint that’s perfect for people who want to escape the city’s hustle and bustle and start their day in a natural environment — the leafy patio feels worlds apart from Bangkok’s busy streets. There’s an indoor dining area with large windows if you want to enjoy some cool air conditioning while admiring the views. The fluffy pancakes and home-baked goodies often go down a treat, and there are various Japanese-inspired dishes for a more substantial brunch.

New Yorker Cafe

With a menu, atmosphere, and appearance that transports you to a family-style diner in the lively heart of the Big Apple, Sukhumvit’s New Yorker Cafe is a great place to fill up in the morning. The bagels and waffles with maple syrup are great if you want something fairly light, while the American breakfast – complete with chunky fries, eggs, bacon, and toast – is perfect for hungrier patrons. Hotdogs, burgers, and sandwiches are typical American brunch options, or you may be tempted by the spinach and ricotta ravioli, tuna salad, or grilled cheese. If you have space left, the apple pie is comforting and divine!

Broccoli Revolution

A stylish vegetarian restaurant in Sukhumvit, Broccoli Revolution focuses on healthy food made from fresh, natural ingredients. The menu features dishes from different parts of the world, including Mediterranean favourites, Thai staples, South American meals, and Western fare. Exciting options that are sure to appeal to your stomach and eyes include the broccoli and quinoa burger served in a charcoal bun with fried root vegetables, the broccoli, apple and walnut salad, Burmese tea leaf salad, and Vietnamese pho. Meals are available to suit different dietary requirements too, including gluten-free, sugar-free, and soy-free. The dining area features climbing ferns and it’s light and airy.

The Corner

The Corner is a combination of a cheap and cheerful backpacker guesthouse and a simply furnished café. Don’t let the basic appearance deter you, though; the food is delicious! The café makes most items fresh on-site, right down to baking its own bread. There are fairly standard breakfast options, like eggs, toast, cereal, and fruit, along with filled ciabattas, BLT sandwiches, and quiche. The specials menu often offers up things that can be rare in the City of Angels, and fuller meals are available if you’re feeling more than peckish in the morning.
