Top 10 Coffees in Phuket

Phuket has developed quite a coffee culture with new cafés opening every week all over the island. The Thais love their iced coffee drowned in sweetened condensed milk whilst the western favourites are gaining in popularity. You’re now hard-pressed not to find good coffee around Phuket. From a 50 baht latte to some of the more fancy decors, here are our favourites.

In no particular order…

  • 1. Old Town Café, Old Kathu

Doesn’t get much more local than this. But add an enterprising Kathu local, a great source of coffee beans, a splash of art and some traditional Thai music blaring out of an old transistor and you have the quintessential Thai coffee experience! Free wi-fi, homemade treats and they even do local food for the weekends. Not a lot of parking along the skinny streets of Old Kathu but it’s worthy of a visit next time you’re around the area.

  • 2. Rush Coffee, Samkong

Situated at the Chillva Market in Samkong, this tiny coffee shop is open during the day even when the market is in full swing. Thai staff, lots of light and open 7 days a week.

  • 3. Coffee Tribes, Rawai

Head south for the delights of Coffee Tribe in Rawai. Always busy, family atmosphere, assortment of great cakes and healthy options. And, of course, great coffee. A hidden gem.

  • 4. KetHo Coffee & Kitchen, Kathu

KetHo, probably better known in Kathu for it’s popular dim sum. But sneak around the back into the car park area and you’ll find this hidden gem. Modern coffee in a green setting with fast wi-fi and plenty of the business crowd dropping in for some work or a quick coffee.

  • 5. Life’s a Bike Café, Kathu

Opposite the blue Dcondo and family-run. Coffees, cakes and good Thai food at reasonable prices. A bike theme and always has a line of motorbikes parked out the front. An eclectic crowd of locals plus the expats living in the Dcondo opposite.

  • 6. Coffee Beans & Greens, Central Festival

If you need a coffee whilst hanging around a big shopping centre then head to Coffee Beans & Greens in Central Festival. Always fresh, good organic coffee as well as plenty of other options if you’re having a non-coffee day (is there such a thing?!).

  • 7. Coffee Lab, Cherngtalay

A local favourite that gets plenty of votes and recommendations. Their own coffee brand ‘Andaman Blue’ is roasted right here in Phuket. They take their coffee seriously and deserve to be ranked in the island’s Top Ten.

  • 8. Delish Café, Rawai

One of southern Phuket’s best boutique cafés run by an Australian couple who clearly know their coffee. Both healthy and really naughty cakes and meals available as well. Just moved from their location on Viset Road to Sai Yuan in Rawai.

  • 9. WeCafe, Chalong

There’s a really cool back story to this place (now two locations with WeCafe 2 now open in Samkong). Thai run and managed with excellent coffee of all styles. They also grow their own hydroponic lettuces which they sell around Phuket which you can see from the windows of the coffee shop. If you eat lettuce on the island it probably came from here!

  • 10. Cafe Sino, Kathu

Right on the main intersection of Phra Phuket Keaw Road where the blue dCondo is, Cafe Sino is very a very ‘Thai’ coffee shop but with great coffee, cakes and they even do food throughout the day. They serve all the Thai coffee blends along with the western favourites. Complete with Thai background music and homemade treats, it’s a really homely experience. Indoor and outdoor seating and next door to a car wash, so get your caffeine fix whilst getting your car cleaned.
