Open for breakfast and lunch, the café tends to stay busy all day thanks to its hefty chili cheeseburgers and pot roasts, both of which prove more satisfying than simply gnawing on a lunchbox.

Bangkok's menu is much like its namesake city: colorful, fun to explore at night, and almost impossible to drive through. Ambush your sleeping taste buds with an appetizer of four spring rolls ($3.75), fried wontons ($3.99), or fried sweet biscuits ($3) washed down with egg drop soup ($2) or a sweet yum yai salad ($6.95). Bangkok's entrees run the gamut from spicy to non-spicy to curry, and wanders further afield in Asia than just Thailand. An order of pad pet ($8.50) brings the jungle heat, and the kang kua curry ($8.50) artfully offsets its spiciness with the sweetness of crushed pineapple and coconut milk. For a dish that dishes out a devastating combo that strikes the tongue's three major pressure points, try the spicy sweet and sour chicken ($8.50). If you'd rather take a walk on Bangkok's mild side, fill up on Bangkok's delectable favorite, pad thai ($8.99). Ginger chicken ($8.50), veggie stir fry ($8.50–$9.99), and garlic chicken or pork ($8.50) all pair well with fried rice.
