This is the best breakfast you can have anywhere near Nana

I go there every morning and i just had American breakfast, side of pancakes and an irish coffee for less than 400

also, centrally located LOL

btw the mexican is located straight across the street by what used to be annies soapy

that's the best mexican food i've ever had outside the usa and if it was in most US cities it would be the best mexican in that city

cheers

Small bar started by an American called Scott about 15 years ago ..Nice guy but the lifestyle got to him and he passed away abt two years ago .

Bar remained the same (wife I think ) ...they have excellent chargrilled burgers 

Also Chequers abt 50m towards Nana on same side does an excellent Full English , c/w newspapers 

(btw 400b for a breakfast in Thailand doesn't seem cheap to me )

The former owner , Scott, was a great guy , but became a hardcore alcoholic before he died .  He would sit and drink black sambuca with beer backs until he could no longer walk, and the girls would than put him in a taxi.

Gai has since taken over the day to day operation...been a few years.... she is a sweetheart , as are all the girls on staff.  A very friendly environment , especially for Americans, and a good place to watch US sports early in the morning. ( 12 hour time difference )

Breakfast is cooked to order and free refills on the coffee.....  Also good wings and a killer grilled chicken breast with bacon and cheese sandwich.

Always a few massage girls right outside by the alleyway that runs next to the bar.

I remember sitting in the side alley and eating a breakfast there at the smallest table in the world...a plank attached to the wall by a chain. 

There used to be a bar down that alley called The Big Mango....run by an insufferable prick with a Napoleon complex...thankfully long gone.

That whole Soi 4 area has changed beyond recognition over the last few years and not for the better.

The Big Mango used to be in Nana Plaza  but moved to the Soi you mention and agree about the bloke who ran it...…. but I will admit... his burgers were bloody good ….. good value for what you paid.... but as you say... now a past memory.

Back in the day I would alternate between the Tavern ( An American bar with mostly USA customers ) and the very Pommy Pub on the opposite corner ...forgotten the name but it was owned by a hugely obese English guy who sat  at the bar and ate /drank all day on an enormous specially made barstool .This pub obviously catered mainly for UK guys 

The contrast was simply amazing ...........in the in the USA Bar , customer would often catch your eye , smile and have a chat whilst in the Pommy bar , there was a clique of locals who shouted at each other across the bar  and completely ignored any new customers ...it was incredibly unfriendly .

Similarily Scot the American owner would get to know your name and introduce customers to each other .....unlike the UK guy who just chatted to his clique 

Never really understood that about English pubs .....if you're going to sit at a bar and drink alone , better / cheaper / comfier to stay at home
