Fuel Up for Paradise: 10 Must-Try Breakfast Spots in Krabi

Krabi is such a beach paradise, you could easily forget about your morning bite. I remember one of my mountaineering friends was so enamored by rock climbing at Railay Beach that he skipped breakfast to conquer those limestone cliffs. 

I must say he had his fair share of rock climbing. But before noon, he was crying for help, calling everyone in our group as he lay helplessly on the white sands urging us to bring him water and food—and fast. 

So much for all the adventure. The good news is we’re giving you the best breakfast spots in Krabi, so you won’t have to starve in the middle of your adventure!

Much & Mellow is one of the more well-known breakfast spots in Krabi that locals and tourists frequent. It’s a newcomer in Krabi’s restaurant scene, so expect a stylish and well-lit rustic interior that is in line with modern standards.

Their menu is massive, so there are a lot of breakfast and brunch options you can try. This includes smoothie bowls, pasta, Japanese rice bowls, Western-style soup, and numerous breads, pastries, and breakfast sets.

However, this cafe is more famous for its 13 signature coffee blends, which we think is definitely worth coming here for. These are the best blends we recommend:

  • Yuzu coffee – unique and delicious blend with yuzu juice, homemade syrup, and double espresso shots served in a margarita glass.
  • The Present – sweet and Instagrammable concentrated coffee mix with fruit juice, homemade syrup, foamed milk, and cinnamon sugar served in a wine glass.
  • Tiramisu – creamy and concentrated iced coffee mix with chocolate and cream cheese topped with two ladyfingers.

Pro Tip: 

For the best experience, we suggest going to their Krabi Town branch since it has a larger dining area with plenty of comfy seating options.

CRU Kitchen & Bar

Address: 328, 3, Ao Nang

Operating Hours: 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 p.m. (Daily)

Contact Number: +66 75 695 152

Pricing: ฿฿ – ฿฿฿



Though not open until later in the morning, CRU Kitchen & Bar is still one of the best places for breakfast in Krabi. The breakfast menu here focuses on Western dishes, so expect salads, Italian pasta, cheese plates, and cold cuts.

Our favorite is their signature cheese plate with premium slices of pecorino romano, Saint-Nectaire, Tomme de Savoie, and gorgonzola. Moreover, they serve it with olives, nuts, chili honey, sourdough, and biscuits.

Aside from that, they have an excellent selection of tapas and sharing plates which we think is perfect if you’re eating with your family or friends. This consists of numerous seafood, meat, and vegetable dishes including fresh oven-baked flatbread.

Pro Tip: 

It’s worth noting that CRU Kitchen & Bar doesn’t have a designated parking spot for customers, so it might not be the best option if you’re driving a car. Otherwise, you must secure a parking spot elsewhere before coming here.

Address: 459 2, Ao Nang

Operating Hours: 9:30 a.m. – 12 a.m. (Daily)

Contact Number: +66 62 059 1666

Mañana Mexican Food has an excellent selection of breakfast options, from tacos to burritos, quesadillas, and more.

Of these, our top pick is the chili con carne taco bowl. This value-for-your-money option is packed with tortillas, chicken breast, rice, black beans, guacamole, sweet corn, and salsa so you have enough for your power breakfast needs.

Their burrito bowl is another good value pick, but if you want your mind blown, we recommend getting their special beef birria tacos. It nails the complex flavors of authentic birria: spicy, savory, sweet, smokey, and tangy!

Pro Tip: 

We recommend coming to Mañana Mexican Food during its opening time to avoid the early lunch rush. Service is usually slow when the restaurant is packed.

This casual breakfast place is great for those who frequent Ao Nang Beach. Tan Tribe Cafe is less than 200 meters away, so you don’t have to travel far to get your caffeine and breakfast fix.

It also serves a wide range of Western-style breakfast items which is why it’s popular among foreigners. This includes pasta, smoothie bowls, brunch sets, and more.

The cafe’s biggest sellers are their all-day brunch sets. Among these sets, our go-to is the full breakfast with Italian sausage, bacon, potato, mushroom, tomato, toast, and two eggs cooked any style since we think it’s the best value for your money.

Pro Tip: 

Tan Tribe Cafe accepts card payments, unlike most food spots in Ao Nang Beach. However, keep in mind that a 3% transaction fee will be charged for card payments.

Brightside Bistro

Brightside Bistro is tucked away in the small street near Ao Nang Beach so you can avoid huge crowds even if you stay in their alfresco dining area. It’s perfect if you like to enjoy a peaceful breakfast and a pleasant beach view.

But that’s not all—you also have plenty of breakfast options from their Western menu. Think grilled cheese sandwiches, smoothie bowls, homemade desserts, and more.

Their excellent grilled cheese sandwiches are our team’s favorites, especially the romesco grilled cheese with homemade Spanish-style roasted red pepper sauce. Plus, everything is vegetarian-friendly, and there are a few vegan options as well.

Pro Tip: 

Brightside Bistro has more indoor seating options but they don’t offer a beach view. The upside? You can get access to their outlets!

Operating Hours: 7 a.m. – 10 p.m. (Daily)

Cafe 8.98 is a fan favorite among vegetarians, vegans, and any health-conscious. It’s a modern industrial-style cafe known for its excellent specialty coffees and healthy Western and Thai breakfast menu.

Their signature power smoothie bowl is our go-to. It’s packed with fruits, a mixed berry smoothie, chia seeds, and pistachio which will energize you for the day.

You can also opt for their build-a-bowl option which lets you create the smoothie bowl of your dreams. Aside from that, their crunchy and flavorful breakfast taco is another popular choice, so it’s definitely worth trying!

Buzz Organic Food & Drink

Address: 376, 3, Ao Nang, Muang Krabi District

Operating Hours: 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. (Daily)

Contact Number: +66 81 870 2317

Pricing: ฿฿


For the health-conscious, Buzz Organic Food & Drink has some of the best vegetarian and vegan options. It’s famous for its organic and allergy-friendly dishes, so you can enjoy a worry-free breakfast here.

Since the menu is massive, this means you’re also likely to find the perfect breakfast dish for you. Our vegan staffers are particularly fond of their avocado and hummus on toast.

A solid all-day option is their delicious vegan wrap with eggplant, quinoa salad, chickpeas, and hummus which comes in a good portion size.

Pro Tip: 

They don’t accept debit and credit card payments so bring enough cash.

Address: 273 Moo 2, Ao Nang, Mueang Krabi District

Operating Hours: 7 a.m. – 10 p.m. (Daily)

Contact Number: +66 65 350 4852

Pricing: ฿฿ – ฿฿฿


The Coffee Club is a solid option because it ticks some essential boxes: chic modern interiors, sublime Ao Nang beachfront view, excellent specialty coffee, and large breakfast menu.

However, the cafe’s biggest selling point for us is its wide range of Western and Thai breakfast dishes. 

Our top recommendation is the big breakfast set which is a large serving of chipolata sausages, bacon, eggs, tomato, mushrooms, toast, and hashbrown. It’s perfect if you like to have a heavy breakfast that can sustain you for the day!

Pro Tip: 

Bear in mind that the prices on their menu don’t include the extra 10% service charge and 7% VAT, so don’t be surprised if the bill is slightly higher than you expect.

89 Cafe

Address: 10/1 Thanon Chofa, Pak Nam, Mueang Krabi District

Operating Hours: 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. (Daily)

Contact Number: +66 88 178 1023

Pricing: ฿ – ฿฿


If you want a peaceful breakfast, go to 98 Cafe. This humble streetside cafe is in a quiet neighborhood at the edge of the town center, so it’s a great option if you want to avoid the areas most tourists frequent.

Their menu offers a nice selection of Western and Thai food which is ideal if you want full-on variety. They have local specialties (try their pad Thai!), and Western staples like baguette sandwiches, burgers, and pancakes.

The foodies on our team say the highlight was the affordable and delicious American breakfast. It comes with 2 fried or scrambled eggs, 2 bacon slices, buttered 2 toast, orange juice, and a choice between hot Americano and black tea.

Pro Tip: 

89 Cafe doesn’t have a large staff, so don’t come here if you’re famished. Also, their portion sizes are small for most foreigners, so be prepared to order a few if you’re a big eater.

Pakarang Vintage Cafe is a charming breakfast spot that’s perfect for tourists who are up for some retro vibes. The cafe’s rustic interior is adorned with artsy decor and shelves full of English books, so there are plenty of interesting things to see as well.

As for the food, we’re fans of their smoothie bowls! The mixed berry smoothie bowl, in particular, is a great pick as it’s loaded with strawberry, blueberry, apple, dragon fruit, and grape honey.

Moreover, they don’t add any sugar to it, so you only taste the natural sweetness of the fruits. Don’t forget to get a cup of their signature cappuccino—it’s definitely one of the best cappuccinos in Krabi!

Pro Tip: 

Pakarang Vintage Cafe’s dining area only has a few tables, so be sure to come early to secure a spot. The place is usually packed for brunch.
