This small shop/cafe sells clothes etc as well as civilised Italian coffees and smoothies and sandwiches etc. It is a tranquil air conditioned place just off the pedestrianised promenade to have a drink, snack and yes possibly buy something. It was 5 years since we last came and my wife still rates the blueberry smoothie as highly as before. There... More

Situated on the beach front at Ao Nang, this little bakery has a good selection of baked goods, from cakes, muffins, cookies, and pastries. They also make sandwiches with a good selection of bread types. The coffee and tea selection is as good as any you'd find in most Western coffee shops and very reasonably priced. A green tea is...

Very good coffee - which can be hard to find in Thailand. The espressos, cappuccinos, and americanos were all strong and delicious. I also got some dark brown bread that they toasted for me. I did not try the smoothies or the cakes but they all looked good. Lovely place for an afternoon break.

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
