A recent trip to Nimmanhaemin offered me
the pleasure of stopping in at the Bake and Bite on Soi 6
for breakfast. There is inside seating but it’s the little
deck out front that is quite nice for a morning cup of
coffee and a hearty breakfast. The prices are quite
reasonable, the service quite good. The bacon was delicious
and crispy and the eggs perfectly done. Eggs can be quite
difficult but whoever is cooking these knows how to cook a
perfect fried egg.
I was joined by my American friend who
had the biscuits and gravy, and while not a Southerner, she
said the sausage gravy was extremely tasty and the biscuits,
while good, would have been better off not being
refrigerated. All over, however she said it satisfied her
biscuits and sausage craving. The breakfast menu includes
such items as steak and eggs, with biscuits and gravy,
cinnamon rolls, to be tried on a future visit, certainly,
and Mexican favourites such as a breakfast burrito and the
always delicious Huevos Rancheros for 120 baht. Again, the
eggs were perfectly cooked; the beans were refried black
beans, so quite tasty, and enough cheese and salsa on top to
On another visit, I had the pan fried
potatoes and sausage. The potatoes were well cooked without
being oily or overcooked, saut้ed with onions and with some
tasty breakfast sausage it was a nice brunch for a
reasonable 90 baht. Coffee is a very reasonable 35 baht and
orange juice 40.
The atmosphere is very casual, but
friendly. The coffee, while not top drawer is quite good and
strong enough to wake even the most difficult of non-morning
people. The prices are very reasonable, with the steak and
eggs with steamed vegetables, biscuits and gravy running 140
baht. The steak, while not of the highest quality was tasty
and not tough. A bit on the smallish side but for 140 baht
for a generous plate of food, one can hardly complain.
My American friend spotted the American
style pancakes which she vowed to try next time, although
she was a tad disappointed they didn’t have maple syrup on
offer, said she was willing to give them a try nonetheless.
There was a tempting bagel with lox and
cream cheese, American style hash browns and more. With a
tempting array of hearty breakfast fare at reasonable prices,
Bake N Bite is certainly worth a visit.
There are two Bake N Bites, this one just
off Nimmanhaemin, at the Tesco Lotus and the other Bake N
Bite at Kaew Nawarat. Open daily from 7 to 7, they serve
hearty breakfasts and delicious sandwiches for lunch as
well. They will be closed from April 8 to 18 for Songkran.
