What to do for an hour before 7:00 am Embassy appointment?

Hi ForumMates,

I arrive NCA bus terminal Bangkok on a Tuesday morning around 6:00 am for a 7:30 appoointment at the US Embassy. I did this years ago and spent nearly two hours wandering around deserted streets looking for a open restaurant or "something."  There probably are places if you know where to go, but the  Mochit and Embassy streets are pretty desolate that  early in the morning.

Any suggestions for a comfortable restaurant or coffee shops or ____ (?)  to hang out at for an hour or so,  ideally near the Embassy or near NCA?

BTW, if you have not done this before, save your pixels, you are not allowed anywhere near the embassy until it is very nearly time for your appointment.  You can't just go in and wait or anything like that.  Maybe in the old days, embassies used to to have the Embassy Bar & Grill or some such.  Can any really old guys (or historians) confirm that?

Thanks, lah!
