The Breakfast Club: The 3 Best Breakfast Spots in Patong to Start Your Day (And End your Hangover)

The morning after a frivolous night out can be quite harsh, and sometimes the thought of food doesn’t sound too appealing at first. This is particularly true when you are staying near and partying at the infamous Bangla Road in Phuket. However, it’s never a bad idea to have at least something in your belly that does not contain alcohol or any other questionable substance. That’s why the list of our three favorite breakfast spots in Patong cover all types of breakfasts. A fruit salad, or any light meal for that matter, can already do wonders. On the other hand, some blokes swear on the miraculous effects of a good ol’ big brekkie. Add a coffee/tea, water, and a fresh juice to the mix and you are able to set yourself up for a day that can only get better! Until, you know, you start the nightly shenanigans all over again.

But in case you really want to get down to the nitty-gritty on how to cure a hangover properly, we’ve got you covered with this detailed post. Because we you.

i-Kroon Café


Hello there, my dear breakfast burrito! If you are like us and love your scrambled eggs wrapped up in a tortilla along with onions, olives, and beans, then i-Kroon Café is the place for you. It is situated in a quiet area near the southern end of the Patong beach. So, it’s perfect for an undisturbed breakfast session. The location might be the reason for the affordable prices as a solid American breakfast is only 160 Baht. Add another 100 Baht to that and you get the extra large version. It’s almost double the amount of eggs, bacon, sausages, and potato wedges!

Other Slumber favorites include the waffles with crispy chicken, the ham, eggs & cheese bagel, and the XL beef burger. We particularly like the rustic design of their wooden dishware on which they are being served. But, by God, we do feel guilty for indulging in too many of their chocolate croissants with powdered sugar and topped with even more chocolate sauce. And don’t even start us on their chocolate brownies… To make us feel less guilty, we sometimes go for an exotic fruit shake or smoothie.

The owner, Nut, and his team welcome us warmly whenever we come here, which, as you can read, is often.

Opening times: 8:30 am – 3 pm; 5 pm – 8 pm (closed on Sunday)
Address: 78/8 Soi Nanai 8, Phungmueng Sai Kor Rd, Patong, Kathu, Phuket

Sandwich Shoppe Café & Bar Patong


The name says it all. This charming little café close to Patong beach is a reasonably priced and worthwhile alternative to the fast food chain that is inexplicably named after an underground train. Sandwich Shoppe has a longstanding tradition of preparing some of the best sandwiches on the island since 2001. The Virginia ham & cheddar cheese sub, for example, is a beast reserved only for those who enter with a growling stomach. That is if you opt for the regular size for 258 Baht. You can also choose only one half for 140 Baht. Another great option is the equally imposing BLT (regular: 109 Baht; half: 200 Baht), which the café proclaims is Phuket’s best. We can only say that it’s a strong contender. We love adding a delicious milkshake to our order for an almost authentic American Diner experience.

They do serve regular breakfast items as well such as a full English breakfast, bacon & eggs, or pancakes. But we recommend sticking to the sandwiches. Alternatively, you can try out one of their bagels. We especially like the breakfast bagel with cheese and bacon for 150 Baht. The café has a neat selection of pastries and cakes on display, which pairs well with a proper cup of coffee. Although, most of the time we are already fully satisfied after our obligatory BLT.

Opening times: 8 am – 11:45 pm (Daily)
Address: 5/26, 5/27 Aroonsom Plaza, Patong, Kathu District, Phuket 83150

New International Café & Bar


You didn’t think that we could write such a list without including a restaurant that is also part sports bar, now did you? Nothing is more enjoyable than eating a gracious portion of bangers & mash with peas while yelling at the TV because that darn player WAS CLEARLY OFFSIDE!

Anyway, you heard right! The New International Café & Bar serves dishes like bangers & mash thanks to its incredible Aussie owner, Ryan. In fact, you will find many Australians dining in this restaurant, which is situated in central Patong. Drinking game: Take a shot everytime someone says “mate”. You’ll be dead after 32 seconds.

Now, we’ve mentioned casually that the other two establishments serve a big breakfast as well. However, THIS is the only place you need to know about when it comes to a real big brekkie. It is served with eggs, mushrooms, beans as well as the best bacon and sausages you can find in the area. For only 250 Baht and the inclusion of coffee or tea and water or juice, we are by no means inclined to complain. In this regard, we are also happy to tell you that the coffee here is fantastic.

For a lighter meal, as we mentioned in the intro, we recommend the fruit salad (150 Baht) or the mixed berry bowl (150 Baht). Vegetarians have the option of a veggie breakfast (180 Baht), which is also big enough to satisfy one’s needs.

Last, but not least, we can’t help but give Ryan’s Pizzas a shoutout. We know, it’s not really something you would order for breakfast, but, golly, are they good! They are the kinds that include lots of toppings, so if you are into that then you are in for a treat.

Opening times: 9 am – 10:30 pm (Daily)
Address: 143/20-21 Rat-U-Thit 200 Pee Rd (Soi Paradise) | On the inroad to Royal Paradise Resort & Spa, Patong, Kathu, Phuket 83150
