Brunch is everything we love. Tasty food. Relaxing setting. Lavish cocktails. There’s not a lot to disagree with there. We’ve picked our favorite places to brunch with friends whilst in Phuket. With this many quality restaurants across the island, there’s bound to be something for everyone here.
The northern coast of Phuket is the high-class luxury heartland. Run and owned by a family, this resort serves what is believed to be one of Phuket’s top brunches. Drop by on a Sunday and you’ll be presented with a feast fit for a king. Traditional Thai, seafood, barbeque, sushi is just the start. Set against the Nai Yang beach, there’s live music and free flow champagne. This is brunch of the highest order.
Location: Indigo Pearl, Nai Yang Beach & National Park, 116 Moo 1, Sakhu, Thalang
Inland and nestled in a small village, The Corner is popular with those passing through and the locals who live here. Not specifically a brunch restaurant, but breakfast starts at 8am and is available all day. This means you can mix and match as you choose. The broadly organic menu has all the brunch favorites; pancakes, muesli and set menus. The sets are very generous and include juice and tea or coffee.
Location: The Corner Restaurant, 118/1 Bandon-Cherngtalay Road, Cherngtalay, Thalang
The hedonistic haven of Patong Beach has restaurants galore. It offers a great selection of both Western and Thai brunch options. There’s a dedicated espresso bar which serves fresh coffee to accompany your breakfast, which is available from 8am. Looking to add a buzz to your brunch? The Rainbow cocktail bar has you covered. Premium cocktails laced with quality spirits, wine, beer or mocktails are all available. All these combined makes for a place that’s a great spot for a sumptuous meal, people watching and relaxing with friends. In our experience, it’s one of the best restaurants in Phuket, hands down.

A rooftop setting in a luxury resort. Now we’re talking. Blue Mango is regularly featured as one of the best restaurants that Patong has to offer and rightly so. Thai flavors and Mediterranean cuisine grace the menu with a wide range of options. Decadent eggs Florentine, topped waffles, French toast or even a full English. There’s something for everyone here and with a cocktail or coffee on top, this is the life.
Location: Blue Mango Bar and Grill, 97 Mhuen Nguen Road,Tri Trang Beach
Probably one of the most famous brunches on the island. Sundays here are all about jazz with a host of musicians playing for your pleasure. Live music, ocean views, incredible food. The menu isn’t just seafood (as the name might suggest)- sharing tapas plates, a western and thai menu plus delightful desserts make for a wide selection of offerings. Looking for a meal with a show? Head over to one of the live cooking stations as you sip on a fresh glass of wine. Lovely.
