The Food Exchange at the new Novotel on Nana Soi 4 / corner of Soi 6 has a large selection of items for 350B++ (411B including taxes and service charges). Eat as much as you can. It might even replace brekkie + lunch.
They are open until 10:30 am.
I also like going to Bully's pub once in a while. Particularly after a walk in the heat it's a great place for a cold beer in an air conditioned room.
Apart from the usual pub grub, they also serve some quite good local Thai dishes, such as Panang curry with beef for 165B. Khao suay (pretty white rice) +35B.
Excellent WiFi signal and some old fashioned paper newspapers are available for free. Of course they have also several large tellies where you can watch soccer.
