It took me more than a week to find this lovely café, during which time I drank some really bad pod coffee masquerading as real grinder coffee. Ideary was recommended to me when I was complaining that I couldn't find real coffee. Also ate some of their lovely croissants with some jam. Well because I could. They have a few... More

Nice little café for breakfast & coffee. We found it on our last day there and wished we had found it sooner. Reasonable for what you got and food was good.

This place is hidden of the street but for the 50 tbh coconut drink and air-conditioned sitting room it's a good quick visit!

Stopped in here twice to get coffee, the double espresso both times was good but the latte left much to be desired. Having 'bakery' in the title we decided to order sandwiches for lunch. What we received though was dry stale toast with a slice of ham. Not very pleasant unfortunately. Probably won't be back again..

We've had coffee there twice. I have a double espresso and it was very good both times. My wife had a cafe latte yesterday and it was massive, too hot and weak. The service yesterday was friendly but the woman today was very rude. We ordered two 'sandwiches'. They both came out made with small, stale, toasted bread and were... More

Chic cafe with a unique style in Ao Nang. The drinks and cakes are delicious and reasonably priced for the area. The cafe overlooks the beach and has a nice little gift shop with some pretty gifts and postcards. They also rent out books for the day, or however long you like - which is great for saving space in... More

I only popped in here to order 2 shakes at midday. There were 4 other people in front ordering sandwiches & drinks & I had to wait 40 minutes for my shake. My husband came looking for me as I'd been missing for so long! Drinks were fine once they arrived but a ridiculous wait with 2 staff members &... More

This has some great nik naks and souvenirs. The drinks are average and the food not great, croissant not really warmed through, brownie quite bitter.

Really hard to find a bakery around the beach (There is one about 5min drive out of town). We went in an tried to order a few ice coffees; definitely a bit of a language barrier but no big deal. It took the two girls about 10-15min minutes to make our four drinks. Drinks were good. No real baked goods... More

This coffee shop is just next to our hotel Aonang Villa Resort and does a nice fruit and toast breakfast platter for 180 Baht and serves very good coffee! However I feel that they could take away the souvenir section put a few more tables and maybe serve some more breakfast options such as scrambled eggs . The service is... More
