Luka Moto has its own set of specials and even a change in restaurant concept in the evenings. But it’s the all-day brekkie that gets us excited. Amongst the healthy options such as granola and an acai bowl, we struggled to choose between three big contenders.  To start, we have the Breakfast Burrito

A sizeable portion features, cheese, 2 organic eggs, Sloane’s sausage, black quinoa, avocado, sour cream and spicy corn salsa to top it all of!

Next up is the Luka Shakshuka. brought in the pan we have a mix of organic eggs, capsicum, chorizo, yogurt, and sourdough. and finally, we have the Gangnam Style Chicken & Waffles served with with pickle kimchi. Need we say more?

And the pre-mentioned Breakfast Burrito [240฿] with pickled chilis, Sloane’s bacon, egg, roasted tomato and of course cheddar cheese.

Rocket Coffeebar is well known for the expertly crafted coffee with special Black Honey Chiang Mai beans being used. The hot beverage menu is good especially for those wanting a decent flat white, however, you can also find some more unusual caffeine drinks such as espresso and tonic.

This being the notorious Sukhumvit Soi 11, alcohol is served from 8 am to keep you topped up the night before with a well-made espresso martini or a bottle of Danish rose wine for 990฿ to match with your scrambled egg and cured salmon.

The weekends are super busy and you can expect a cue, but we say its worth the wait. Much of the food menu is organic with the majority of ingredients being sourced locally. Like the Singapore outlet, almost everything is made on-site including the delicious longan wood-smoked salmon and the mouth-watering house-cured bacon. Of course, with a name like sarnies you can expect plenty of open toast and sandwiches to choose from. A popular dish on the menu is the ​CB&J ​(cashew butter, natural local honey, roasted grapes, thyme on sourdough) for 280฿.

Or classic Aussie-style Bacon and Eggs Sarnie served with tomato relish on ciabatta for 320฿. Being a cafe with Australian brunch influence there had to Fry-Up on the menu, complete with smoky-bacon baked beans, roasted tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms, smashed potatoes & sourdough and the usual suspects. And there is an innovative “Pimp my Breakfast” where customers can create their own meal to be vegetarian, low carb, carnivore or whatever else they fancy.

This uber cool cafe at the end of trendy Ekkamai was born for a love of good coffee and well designed brunch options. We love Kaizen and not only does it deserve a mention in our top brunch list but we also included it in top places to have coffee in Bangkok 2020. The food at Kaizen is exceptional with a strong influence from worldwide culinary culture. 

The sourdough on toast options are to die for with Fig and Avocado [265฿]  with cream cheese, balsamic, pistachio and pomegranate being one of our favourites. Bacon and Egg Brioche sandwich with Mayo [210฿] is so tasty you will want two and the Yoghurt Brekkie with Banana Toast [220฿] is the best guilty pleasure with its drizzled will honey, peanut butter and fresh berries.

It’s not just feel-good dinners that make Odtomato stand out though. Their Brunch menu is worth a visit for their Buttermilk Flapjack [285฿] with butter and Canadian maple syrup. Or their gut-busting Big Boy Breakfast [385฿] with 2 eggs, bacon, sausage, baked beans, mushrooms and avocado is a show stopper.

The eggs benny is served on a buckwheat muffin with perfectly cooked eggs. All can be washed down with a hot coffee, a protein shake like the yuzu dream or one of their flavoured kombuchas like the  Shizuoka Green Tea with honey [150฿].

Starting with the breakfasts, you can expect egg centred dishes with the humble avocado taking a large role.  The star dish is the Quinoa Zucchini Fritters [340฿]] served with poached egg, parmesan cheese, beetroot puree, dill creme fraiche, avocado. But we also love to tuck into the Breakfast French Toast [380฿]] served with bacon, sausage, fresh strawberries, orange and caramelized banana!

We particularly liked the international breakfast section letting you explore the world through culinary wake-ups. The Mexican Breakfast is delicious with its sunny side up eggs, grilled cheese tortilla, creamy guacamole, refried Pinto beans and grilled chicken.

Not Just Another Cup is a strong contender for the top brunch spot in Bangkok, especially for those looking for a perfect Instagram shot. It certainly gets busy at the weekends, which is always a good sign, so be sure to call and book ahead. The pallet tones, furnished wood light space make it a great place to hide and work off your laptop all day, whilst being topped up by decent coffee.

We do love the bright colours of all the food that comes out especially the heart-shaped bowls of the smoothies, we opted for the Healthy Monkey [200฿]] avocado, banana, cacao nibs, cacao powder and almond milk.
