Looking for high-quality bakeries? Living in Phuket we are extremely fortunate to have so many organic vegetables, tropical fruits and coconuts, to name just a few. But there’s been a shortage of fresh, quality bakery products and pastries although there have been a few long-term notables.

Now there are lots of new high-quality bakeries opening on the island. In no particular order…

1. Lucky 13 Sandwich

When you think of Lucky 13 you automatically think of their amazing sandwiches and fresh drinks. But the secret to their delicious sandwiches is the love that goes into making their breads.
Lucky13 Bakery stands for tradition and craftsmanship when it comes to breads and sandwiches. The long-term Lucky 13 ambition is to change the massive yeast-produced bread industry, which short cuts and disregards the fermentation processes that produce flavours and texture, and uses additives, chemicals and artificial sugars instead. The bread industry in Thailand, and much of the world shows little regard for traditional bread-making techniques required to make authentic bread. It’s all about volume and speed. To make a true Italian Ciabatta for example, all you need is flour, water, salt, time and attention to temperature. It takes exactly 18 hours to make the Lucky 13 Ciabattas. We use no sugar, no pre-mixes or additives of any kind – it is the truest artisan bread available.
Lucky 13 makes it easy for you to enjoy their delicious menu by offering free delivery within the local areas of their 8 convenient locations throughout Phuket and Phi Phi Island.

2. Bake, at Central in Patong

Bake Central Patong, as well as delicate, buttery pastries, offers a delicious range of late breakfast dishes. Try the smashed avocado, smoked salmon, feta cheese and poached eggs on toast, washed down with a strong cup of coffee from the cooler climates of Northern Thailand. For those with a sweet tooth, the home-made pancakes, stuffed with fresh banana, pomegranate, passion fruit and mint are divine.

Savoury sandwiches as well as pasta dishes are prepared to order and may be eaten in or taken away and enjoyed on the beach. Perk up with an afternoon tea for two. Enjoy freshly brewed coffee or a pot of our fine tea, with a superb selection of French macarons, sandwiches and exquisite cakes.

Bake is also found in Cherngtalay, so you’re never too far away from some sweet stuff and a great cup of tea or coffee. Open daily 10am until 11pm. Telephone: 09 3576 8997.

4. Zurich Bread Factory and Café, Kathu

Locals drive from all over the island to buy takeaway bread and pastries from Zurich Bread Factory. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the menu features its house-made traditionally European style bread and pastries. You need to try the cranberry hot cross buns, almond croissants and fruit tart (there’s definitely fruit in there, along with creamy custard and chocolate 🙂 Located on the very busy Phrabaramee Road in Kathu, opposite the go-karting track. Parking is available behind the bakery.

5. Project Artisan, Layan

Located five minutes inland from Layan Beach, nestled amongst lush grass and native foliage, Project Artisan is the perfect escape for the entire family. A relative newcomer in location and style, Project Artisan quickly established itself as the place to be on the island for the hip crowd, providing excellent service, artisan food and beverages and regular workshops to educate the young and the young at heart. Project Artisan’s locally sourced, and organic-where-possible bread and pastries are available in their aptly named “Grab & Go“ and also feature on their evolving menu (gluten-free bread can also be ordered in advance).

6. La Fayette French Bakery, Kamala

Located along the Kamala main road this cafe/bakery production kitchen has slowly become the go-to spot in the village for decadent pastries and real French baguettes. The elegant yet casual atmosphere often leads to a long lunch with friends sipping on coffee and tempting each other into ordering just one more (to share of course). The dine-in and takeaway bakery items and rustic, traditionally crafted bread, as well as their buttery and fluffy croissants ( don’t forget their chocolate almond croissants), are a naughty pleasure.

7. Villa Mart and Tops (Central)

Both the Villa Mart supermarkets (Chalong, Koh Kaew and Cherngtalay) and Tops supermarkets (Central Patong, Central Floresta, Central Festival, Central Porto de Phuket, Cherngtalay), have an excellent selection of fresh breads everyday catering for different styles and tastes. Villa Mart has a few of the ‘heaver’, grainier style breads as well whereas Central has some of the Thai-style sugary breads and cakes in its mix. Both have come a long way in recent years and are now providing a much improved selection.

8. Delish Café, Rawai

Off the beaten track down in Rawai (used to be in Chalong on Viset Road), Delish Café is primarily frequented by locals, our suggestion to you is to break out of the tourist trap and head south. The café is owned and operated by an Australian couple who are long term residents on the island. Already listed on The Thaiger’s Top Ten Coffees, it also makes our best bakery list too, because their freshly baked products are simply the best. The cake cabinet is something you would expect in a trendy suburban café in Sydney.

9. Lady Pie, Thalang

Lady Pie was started by Susan Usher in early 2004 in Phuket from humble beginnings after sailing from Australia to Phuket. Susan started making Aussie pies to satisfy her own, husband Harry’s and the lads from Ao Chalong Yacht Club’s desires for real pies. This led to the formation of a home-based cottage industry which was washed into the sea by the December 2004 tsunami. Being the Aussie battler she is, Susan was soon back into production with 2 staff again and supplying quite a few boats passing through Phuket. In December 2005 she had moved into new premises in Cherng Talay and has since been providing the island with delicious (and authentic) Australian pies.

10. Bake Free, Rawai

The concept of Bake Free was created by Siham C. Semaan, a Lebanese lady who was deprived of all the good and tasty food because of Celiac Disease. Siham was born in a traditional Lebanese family where everything rotated around food, big family lunches, Christmas dinners, and everyday home cooking. She started with Bake Free as a blog sharing gluten-free recipes and then her passion developed into a chain of Coffee shops/Bakeries in Phuket.

Buying beef online? Is it real beef or faux beef? Almost all of the samples of ‘beef” ordered online, or taken as samples from schools in Bangkok and Prachinburi province, were found to be fake. The Halal Science Centre at Chulalongkorn University did the checks and was astonished to find that much of the beef bought online was actually cheaper cuts of pork. The pork can be marinated in ox blood to take on the appearance of beef. Harmful bacteria was also detected in portions of the samples checked by the University team. The actual percentage of the beef checked that […]

Following a backlash from the country’s farmers, Thailand’s Agriculture and Cooperatives Ministry has agreed to update its list of “Type 2” hazardous substances to remove 13 herbs and vegetables. The government says it will instead move these to the “Type 1” list, meaning farmers don’t have to be registered as producers, but will still have to inform officials when exporting or importing them. The 13 substances include seemingly innocuous herbs and spices like lemongrass, celery, chillies, galangal, ginger, turmeric, all of which are commonplace ingredients in cooking, especially Thai cooking. Others include neem, marigold, Siam weed, camellia seed residue, the […]

A novel coffee shop set up in a decommissioned Airbus 330 has been ordered to close temporarily after the business simply became too popular after going viral on social media. It’s understood thousands of customers a day were arriving for a latte or cappuccino from “Coffee War” in Sattahip, a district in the south of Chon Buri province. Manager Suttipong Boonloi says the aircraft cost 10 million baht and was converted into a quirky cafe selling coffee for between 60 and 80 baht a cup. He adds that strict Covid-19 hygiene measures are already in place, including temperature checks, the […]
