Breakfast corner

In Phuket, breakfast is no longer just a meal. It’s now a popular way of life. Eateries are becoming more creative, serving up modern comfort food with a twist. If you’re looking for a breakfast that’s healthy, fun and a little edgy, these venues will satisfy all of that – and huge appetites too. So start the day the right way…

Poached Breakfast Café

Phuket’s first dedicated breakfast and brunch café features some great creative choices, and claims to advocate “good taste, good times and good manners” in equal measure. Poached serves up heaping plates of comfort foods – with a twist. We recommend the Pulled Pork Eggs Benny – slow cooked pulled pork shoulder piled atop sourdough and served with poached eggs, apple cider hollandaise, green apple, pomegranate and mint. Worth mentioning for coffee lovers, this place has Nitro Brew on tap.

Where & when:
Chalong, daily 6.30am - 3.30pm


Project Artisan

Project Artisan is a trendy place featuring a Garden Eatery and a Tipsy Bar. Promoting healthy food and inspiring design, as well as a love of arts and crafts, their unique approach and eclectic design are matched by the food. A recommended breakfast is the Belgian waffles with fresh fruit, granola and organic yoghurt. The coffee here is smooth and artisanal teas are available too.

Where & when:
On the way to Layan Beach, daily 8.30am - 11.00pm


Unni’s Restaurant

Unni’s offers a hand-crafted breakfast menu of high quality on Nai Harn Beach, with a range of healthy options to fuel up on before heading to the beach. Recommendations include the Homemade granola served with tropical fruits and natural yoghurt and the filling Avocado toast (beetroot hummus with smashed avocado on wholemeal toast and pumpkin seeds).

Where & when:
Nai Harn Beach, daily 8.00am - 9.30pm


Flip Side

Flip Side is a beach diner that offers enough variety to please everyone. The breakfast menu is a mix of smoothie bowls, avocado toast combinations, classic egg favourites and breakfast burgers. Portions lean on the large side and the ingredients are really top quality. Flip Side is laid back and casual. It’s a pleasant place to enjoy a leisurely breakfast or just your morning coffee. Highly recommended is the Breakfast Burger, stacked high and topped with a sunny-side up egg.

Where & when:
Right across from the beach in the heart of Rawai, daily 8.30am - 10.30pm


Atsumi Raw Café

A spin-off from Rawai’s Atsumi Detox centre, The Raw Café serves raw vegan and vegetarian breakfasts. Chill out in their ‘secret’ garden with covered seating, free Wifi and complimentary tea while you kick off your day with one of these ultra-healthy options: Apple Breakfast Muffin, Tropicana Granola or the ubiquitous Breakfast Bowl.

Where & when:
Viset Rd, corner of Soi Mangosteen, daily 9am - 8.30pm
