Our selection of the best Bangkok brunch spots includes these five faves. Avo ahoy!
At Aussie-influenced riverside stalwart Kuppa
, the all-day breakfast features Kuppa French toast, pancakes with maple syrup and berry compote, eggs Benedict, and the hearty Kuppa Breakfast with eggs, bacon, ham, sausage, grilled tomato and caramelised onion. House-roasted Arabica coffee beans wet your whistle, or sip a mocktail.
Top-notch comfort food and specialty coffee is the mantra at mod-rustic Roast
, a casual all-day eatery where everything is made in-house. Brunch treats span eggs Benedict with smoked salmon, jerk chicken sandwiches, huevos rancheros, corn and zucchini fritters, and smashed avo on rye. Finish with cranberry brioche French toast.
With an in-house bakery and artisan coffee, the original Scandi-style Rocket
offers wholesome brekkies in a light-filled wood-and-white-tiled café with a counter bar and airy patio. The Nordic-inspired menu includes the meaty Viking breakfast plate with roast potatoes, or savour smoked salmon and greens with the Maiden platter. Scandinavian iced berries, Swedish beets and apple, and gravlax open-sandwiches offer fresher fare.
If fusion Japanese sushi is your idea of brunch heaven, then idle to trad-chic Isao
bar. Graze on appetisers such as fried tofu or baked scallop in creamy sauce, then munch on maki from California rolls to spicy tempura.
Delish dishes at hip neighbourhood Luka
, in a Fifties shophouse, tick the nostalgia box, with the Luka breakfast burrito, sloppy meatball sandwiches, truffle-mushroom scramble on toast, crispy cauliflower fries, and chunky salads. Coffee and tea are both meticulously brewed in-house.
