In Bangkok: the ultimate brunch spots

 

#1

Bangkok cafe: BREKKIE  Interior: 8/10 There’s a row of swings by the window on second floor of the café which makes a good photo spot.  Food: 9/10 I had the fried quinoa tom yum with diced salmon and absolutely loved it! The sweet potato fries are also one of the best I’ve had!

#2

Bangkok Cafe: ORGANIKA  Interior: 10/10 An all-white interior, marbled tiles, shelves lined with rows and rows of perfumes, plentiful of natural light -- classy!  Food: 8/10 Their cocktail & dessert pairing looks good and tastes equally heavenly - we had their secret rose garden.

#3

Bangkok Cafe: ROCKET COFFEEBAR  Interior: 10/10 The interior itself (just look at that!) is what made our effort of walking ten minutes in the rain worthwhile.  Food: 7/10 There's something about drinking a hot cuppa tea after being almost completely drenched that will instantly warm you up!

#4

Bangkok Cafe: PATOM ORGANIC LIVING  Interior: 9/10  If you’re someone who’s a thing for natural light and greenery, this glasshouse is made for you!  Food: 8/10 Health nuts and clean eat advocates will go nuts over  their prepacked lunchboxes and locally-sourced groceries. My only regret would be not buying more of the organic  snacks (e.g. dried bananas/banana chips) home :-(  

#5

Bangkok Cafe: LUKA  Interior: 8/10  This place reminded me of a vintage shop that sells  antique furnitures and other knickknacks.  Food: 7/10  It’d been perfect if they are generous with the avocado  serving on the toast — its flavour was overpowered by  the pesto sauce. Their grilled cheese was good though!   

#6

Bangkok Cafe: (NOT JUST) ANOTHER CUP  Interior: 7/10  This two storey café has a cosy atmostphere with a chill vibe. Other than that, there’s nothing special about the interior,  it’s just a very typical café. We had to wait to get a seat since  it was packed when we arrived (around lunch time?)  Food: 8/10  To be fair, we only sampled two cakes out of the huge selection of pastries (as pictured above) they offered. The matcha roll  cake was good, but tiramisu could be a little less dry. That  aside, the reviews for the café are good. It would’ve been fairer  if we tried more items from the menu (they all look absolutely  delectable!)

#7

Bangkok Cafe: WANDERLUST  Interior: 6/10  With just a couple of furnitures scattered out in an industrial  compound, it’s sad to say I’m not a big fan of its interior.   Food: 7/10  The dutch pancakes I had was absolutely delish - caramelized bananas, a generous scoop of vanilla ice-cream topped on fluffy,  warm pancakes - and perfect for sharing!    
 

I've just come back from Bangkok and am super excited to be sharing with you some of my favourite cafés. So, here's a list of cafés I'd recommend checking out on days you crave for a hearty breakfast/brunch because they do serve pretty filling dishes (think pancakes 🥞, avocado toast 🥑, grilled cheese sandwiches 🧀 and quinoa bowls 🍚) along with amazing coffees. 

Taste-wise, I personally prefer the brunch places in Chiang Mai (especially SS1254372 and Rustic&Blue) that offer a great selection with generous portions. Interior-wise, most of these cafés are two-storey, well-furnished, impeccably decorated and naturally lit — that really made up for everything. I hope that rating and ranking these cafés according to the two factors I value the most makes your life easier as you try to sieve out the best cafés to head to when you have a limited time in Bangkok! 

I'll be sharing the best cafés for desserts/tea in another list, so keep your eyes peeled 👀✨
