Looking for American-style breakfast on Nimmanhaemin Road in Chiang Mai, Thailand? If so, you may want to check out Smoothie Blues. While the name of the place sounds like they only sell smoothies, I found out in my recent stay at Nimmanhaemin area that Smoothie Blues sell a ton of other stuff like American style breakfast, Mexican breakfast, sandwiches, salads, and much more.
This is probably my 3rd year visiting Nimmanhaemin and I am so glad I found a great breakfast such as Smoothie Blues. On my first day, I ordered a breakfast Panini, which was absolutely delicious with taste you wouldn’t believe you are in Thailand.
I didn’t order the below breakfast burritos (will try next time I go) but it does look pretty delicious.
They had pancake with scrambled egg inside which was very interesting, most dishes also serve with small salad.
Don’t like heavy meal? Then try their breakfast oatmeal with fruit which is definitely one of the best in Chiang Mai.
Smoothie Blues is located in the center of Nimmanhaemin Road right next to 7-11 so it is really easy to find. (Click Here for Google Maps)
Also, just another tip for travelers in Chiang Mai, a lot of restaurants with 5 stars on TripAdvisor are mainly filled with fake reviews or tourist traps so I would not rely on TripAdvisor to find good food. Unlike my experience with Yelp back at home in SF Bay Area, TripAdvisor has been pretty much hit-and-miss every time as many restaurants I checked out were nowhere near what TripAdvisor indicated.
Best way to experience Chiang Mai is really to try different restaurants yourself. And an easy way to tell if a restaurant is good is to see how many customers are eating there when you enter. Just avoid any restaurants that are empty or you just have a bad feeling about it. Some of these places are tourist traps and all they care about it making money. But Smoothie Blues is definitely worth every penny and I highly recommend to check them out if your tastes buds are of a sensitive westerner like myself.
