Going out for breakfast is such a luxurious idea that it doesn't usually even occur to you until it's too late. After all, cereal from the box at home is just so easy. That said, every time you do get up and out for a tasty brekkie somewhere, it's such a great start to the day and a memorable one at that.
Here are five of Bangkok's best eateries that are so good, they'll lure you out of bed in the mornings!
1. Crepes & Co
This iconic eatery has been around for 20 years and is still going strong. It offers a mix of French and Mediterranean meals throughout the day, but it's the morning crepes and coffees that make it the place to be in the morning. It's got a kids corner menu for the young ones and an extensive list of salad options if you're looking for something a little healthier.
Where: Thonglor Soi 8 and Langsuan Soi 1
2. Chu Chocolate Bar & Cafe
Churros, waffles, chocolate-drizzled everything and smooth coffees. This sweet breakfast bar is a must-do in Bangkok for its divine range of morning meals. Look for classics such as the Waffles 'n' Chicken with cider coleslaw, or the pulled pork and poached egg waffle. Of course, there are plenty of your usual brekkie options for savoury tastes, too!
Where: 2nd Floor Exchange Tower Sukhumvit Rd (Asoke) and 1st Floor No. 150 Soi Pipat 2 Silom Rd (Sathorn)
3. Waft Me
The divine smells emanating from this establishment will waft you inside into a seat before you've even realised you're that hungry. Their honey toast meal is served in a tall glass, the waffle option is a build-your-own burger (a 'wafger'), and the Thai milk tea lava has to be seen (and eaten) to be believed.
Where: Chaeng Watthana Soi 29
Eatdustry is one of the newer brekkie bars in town, but you wouldn't know it from its established cult following. The strawberry waffles are the signature dish (Bangkok really likes waffles), but there are endless plates such as eggs benedict and an all-you-can-eat bread and yoghurt bar.
Where: 555/55 Soi Sukhumvit 55, Khlong Tan Nuea, Watthana
5. On Lok Yun
For a proper traditional Thai breakfast, head to the place that's been serving up morning meals for locals for more than 80 years. Ask for the sangkaya, their signature dish, which is a bread with egg custard meal that's a must (at least for one person at your table, so you can all try it!). There are all your usual eggs and sausages type meals as well, but if you're going to On Lok Yun, you may as well enjoy the local fare!
Where: 72 Charoenkrung Road
