Best early morning cafe or coffee shop?

Looking for someplace where I can get decent espresso drinks and maybe western breakfast at 530am.

Preferably between BKK1 and Riverside, but I'm flexible to go a lot of places as I'm out running at that time.

Khéma opens at 6 AM, might be your best bet.

Khema advertises a "free flow" breakfast for about $11. It's not a buffet, you just order as much as you can scarf down off the menu, I think. You'd have to eat three a la carte breakfasts to make it worthwhile.

khema does a cracking breakfast. Drink 2 coffees and thats at least 5 dollars, add an orange juice for $2 and then you only have $4 of food to eat to break even.
I’ve probably eaten $30 worth of breakfast there during the free flow. It does start to get embarrassing after a while though.

It’s well worth the money though.

Indeed. Add eggs benedict like in the pic posted above and a croissant or pain au chocolat, some of their delicious bread with french jam etc; muesli with yoghurt and fresh fruit and it's easy to top $20-25 worth. What I like even more is that they offer it until 11 am, it used to be 10am at the other location.

What's the service like? Is it included on the bill?

I remember eating a full French style buffet breakfast at the Sofitel on the Nile in Cairo for .50p.

Yes, exactly. I'll start with a fresh juice and a pot of tea (nice tea, not the free Chinese tea), order a main dish (maybe an eggs Florentine or something), then a plate of fruit of fruit for dessert, and a coffee at the end, with an added juice at some point. It's a great deal, and doesn't even have to be too filling.

If you order a main dish as part of the free flow do they make you finish it before you can order another one?

The 'main' dishes are small enough to finish 2 or 3 of them easily

So does this mean that if I go there for breakfast, you lot are going to be there?

Okay, Eric Kayser instead.

Cmon people, now we’ll need to find another spot. Can’t be having Canasta hanging around.
