Blue Diamond Breakfast Club

Blue Diamond Breakfast Club

Perhaps the best Western breakfast spot in town

More on Chiang Mai

The Blue Diamond health-food cafe in Chiang Mai‘s old town is hugely popular with expats, locals and tourists and has a reputation for being perhaps the best Western breakfast spot in town. It is actually open all day — 07:00 to 21:00 — so it’s a lunch, afternoon tea or dinner option as well, with plenty of Thai food options to choose from, but as the sign below indicates, it’s breakfasts that made it famous.

Now the emphasis is on healthy eating, with organic-only fruit and veggies used and plenty of vegetarian and vegan choices, so think lashings of muesli, yoghurt and fruit salads for breakfast, and oodles of salads for lunch.

We were pleased to see that there were still plenty of unhealthy — but tasty — English-style fry-ups too, so you don’t actually need to have a beard and Grateful Dead T-shirt to eat here.

Dinner options include Western dishes as well as Thai classics (peruse the menu below…), though we’re a bit dubious about some of their cross-over dishes such as Massaman curry and spaghetti!?

Coffee’s also important at Blue Diamond (as the below indicates), so there’s a wide range of local brews and teas, as well as fruit juices and shakes too. The restaurant also incorporates a shop and bakery, so you can also stock up on organic fruit and veg, teas, coffees and so on while you’re here.

Blue Diamond is tucked away down Moonmuang Soi 9, so just past Somphet market on the left as the traffic flows. All in all, a great — yes and healthy — eating and drinking spot and not for nothing one of the most well known in town so we’ll leave you with a last shot of some happy eaters:

Look no beards..........

Look no (well not many) beards ...
