On holiday, you don’t always wake up at the crack of dawn. So in case you end up sleeping in and wake up to find the hotel’s breakfast buffet all dried out, we are here to rescue you. Luckily, there are a whole new breed of Brunch Cafe’s emerging in the city and each one has their own unique menu and experience. So jump on that BTS train and let’s go cafe hopping!
The Roast Cafe (The Commons)
335 55 Rd Thonglor 63 Klongtan Nue Wattana, 17 Sukhumvit Alley, Khlong Tan Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110, Thailand
The Roast Cafe is great find. This one is a long walk from Thong lo BTS station but it’s worth it for the american cafe style ambiance, the food and their excellent coffee. When you’re looking for good wholesome comfort food, just go to Roast and you will be satisfied! They have a pretty good selection of snacks, mains and desserts too.
The strawberry waffle is a true winner here!
But you should also try the Corn Beef Hash.
53 Ekamai Soi 12,Sukhumvit Soi 63 10110, 10110, Thailand
If you’re in the mood for something fancy, step into the elegant Vanilla cafe and Bake shop. This is near Ekkamai station so its convenient to reach there by the BTS train.
Enter the secret garden of Vanilla cafe with fountains and little butterflies along the path to the cafe entrance.

Once you enter, it’s like a 1960’s retro Japanese home with curios, Japanese comics and vintage toys.
They specialize in Italian Japanese fusion cuisine, but are also known for their signature Cronut topped with homemade ice cream layered with caramel, and vanilla custard sauce. My mouth is watering already…
One Ounce For Onion :
19/12 Ekkamai 12, Sukhumvit 63 Rd., Klongton Nua, Wattana, Bangkok, Thailand 10110 (BTS Ekkamai, 12-15 min walk)
You need google maps to find this little hidden gem with an accessories boutique on one side and a brunch cafe on the other.
Once Ounce for Onion serves strange yet delectable confections like the Barbecue Bacon Waffle! (oh yeah!! ) I would also recommend the Grilled Croissant that comes with a spicy tomato sauce with minced pork and egg.
Even if you have just a little time, you can snack here and continue cafe hopping. They serve great coffee by the Brave Roasters that’s worth a try.
Salt // Pepper:
Central World Mall
Chances are, you may want a change from typical Thai food after a few days in Bangkok. If that’s the case, head straight to Salt // Pepper for some fusion Thai food. The refreshing decor has greenery interspersed with the seating. The lampshades echo the shapes of salt crystals and pepper. Very chic.
We stepped in with our toddler not knowing what to expect, but the huge picture menu helped us choose. They also provided colorful tableware for kids. The food was fascinating! They are famous for their sliders and the vanilla pannacotta. Their beverages are also varied and refreshing.
My daughter loved the Fries Platter which was accompanied by 8 sauces and dips. The orange sauce was the best!
We also tried the pesto chorizo spaghetti and prawns with fried rice. I wish I had stopped to take pictures but our food was devoured with much gusto and greediness in a matter of minutes. The highlight was the Peach cider soda which came in a huge mason jar and made us forget all the hours of walking in the humidity of Bangkok.
