We’ve all been there. You’re lying in bed with a kicking hangover after one too many buckets and a few too many Leos. Sound familiar? Get yourself to a brunch spot to recover. Or maybe you’re heading out into the city for some sightseeing and need to stock up on some energy. What better way to prep for your exertions than with a delicious brunch!
The Bangkok brunch scene has something for everyone so take a look at our top picks to get you set up for the day, whatever your taste.
Kay’s is the kind of place you walk into and think “woah, nice”. The décor is clean and modern and the food is beautifully presented. If you arrive in the late morning then you’ll still have access to their morning buffet where you can help yourself to classic breakfast food, plus a cooked savory and sweet dish and coffee. If the buffet doesn’t take your fancy then you can also order a la carte; the French toast is to die for. Priced slightly higher than its competitors but well worth the money.
Hours of Operation: 6:30am – 4pm daily except 6:30am-12pm Tuesdays
Location: 116/55-57 Rangnam Road, Phaya Thai, Bangkok 10400

A chewy, fresh bagel is the perfect brunch choice and you’re spoilt for choice at BKK Bagels in Ratchaprasong. First choose your style of bagel- sweet or savory? With blueberries or chia seeds or just classic with salt? Then move on to the toppings. Maybe smoked salmon with capers, sour cream and dill? Or maybe a Reuben with real corned beef and sauerkraut. The menu is extensive and all the meats are all smoked, roasted and cured in-house. Highly recommended.
Hours of Operation: 7:30am – 5:30pm Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 5:30pm Saturday & Sunday
Location: 518/3 Maneeya Center North, Ploenchit Road, Bangkok 10330

Trader Vic’s is a Polynesian-themed delight. Yes, you have to pay a bit to eat here, but the Sunday brunch buffet is legendary. This isn’t just your classic eggs benedict and toast either. Think freshly shucked oysters, foie gras, sushi and lobster. If you want to really make a meal of it then hit the dessert counter and cheese boards too. The wait staff are attentive, the riverside location is fantastic and the whole experience will leave you feeling rejuvenated. The brunch package costs 1990 baht including fruit juices and signature cocktails.
