Bangkok is not exactly known as a breakfast hotspot and there are two reasons why: The locals swear by their hot soups in the morning, and guests usually dine in their lush hotels for breakfast. So where to go if you’d rather have breakfast in one of the cool cafés in Bangkok?
After countless trips to Bangkok, we have searched high and low for the best breakfast & brunch cafes in Bangkok. In this article, we will share with you the best and most instagrammable cafés in Bangkok.

1. Luka Bangkok
One of our favourite cafes in Bangkok is the very hipster Luka. Here, they serve excellent breakfast and have a wonderful atmosphere to complement it. The Luka Bangkok is a kind of concept store, so the café itself is actually located within a furniture and home improvement store.
Breakfast is served all day and the menu has everything you would expect at a hipster cafe: from Açai Bowl to Shakshuka. The coffee also tastes very good.
The only drawback: the prices are almost European level. For two breakfasts and two cappuccino, we paid more than 1.000 Baht (over 25 Euros).

Address: 64/3 Thanon Pan, Bangkok (There is also a second location near the Thong Lo BTS station.)
Getting there: BTS to Surasak (from there about 5 minutes walk)
Prices: rather high – we paid more than 1.000 Baht for two (= over 25 Euros)
In the very trendy Toby’s, you will find expats meeting for coffee, breakfast, and work. There is more English spoken here than Thai, and you feel like you somehow landed in the Australian city of Melbourne instead.
The café is very cool, decorated with lots of plants and wood, but depending on the time of day, it can also get a bit hectic when it’s busy. The menu is Australian inspired: avocado toast, granola, etc. Coffee is also good.
The prices are definitely not considered cheap for Bangkok: we paid a total of around 1.000 Baht for two breakfasts and two cappuccino, which converts to over 25 Euros.

3. Rocket Coffeebar Bangkok
This is a very nice little cafe where, as the name implies, the focus is on the coffee – and we can confirm that it really does taste good here!
In addition to good coffee, the Rocket also offers many breakfast dishes, including açai bowl, porridge and sandwiches. All in all, a highly recommended cafe.

4. (Not just) another cup
Another hipster cafe is the (not just) another cup. It is located in Silom (near the Luka Café mentioned above). In our opinion, the cafe is run with a little less attention to detail than others, but we would still recommend it.
The menu is more extensive than the other cafes: But the breakfast menu is so comprehensive that you can hardly decide. They have avocado toast, cereal, açai bowl, as well as Mexican and Moroccan inspired dishes. For lunch, they also serve countless other hot dishes, such as pasta, soups, salads, and more.
For us personally, the atmosphere here was a bit of a notch down compared to the other cafes. But the prices are still at a similar level: We paid around 1.000 Baht for two people.

5. The KAFE
This is a café you probably won’t have read anywhere else. We actually stumbled across it by accident during our first stay at the Companion Hostel, as it is basically just next door. Since then, the KAFE has become our first stop for good coffee in the Wongwian Yai district.
Unlike the other hipster locations mentioned in our blog article, the KAFE is very authentic. In other words, the café is run by local Thai people. Nevertheless, the coffee tastes amazingly good.
Unfortunately, they don’t offer much in terms of a real breakfast, apart from the croissants and other sweet things you see on display. Of course, even just for coffee and cake, it’s worth a visit. The KAFE also sells very crafty leather goods from the surrounding factories.
