Paandai Cafe

The Cafe was a plenty find whilst my wife was having her hair done.

It seems to be a recent opening and there did not seem to be much happening there whilst I was there - the air-conditioning was not on which is always a sign for it not going to be busy.

So I sat outside to save them money. It was a great spot to watch the world drive past me.

The coffee was smooth and certainly worth drinking and it was served with a bottle of cold water - a nice touch.

Good Luck - here's a positive review.

Cloud 19 - Lianappa

This is certainly a special place to visit - but this is not for everybody.

Cloud 19 is the boutique hotel and Lianappa is the restaurant and this means that it may well be a little expensive for some visitors to Phuket BUT for somewhere special whilst you are here?

There are a number of wonderful cocktails for you to try - we always do...

The restaurant serves both Thai food 

and Western food - both very good.

The Beach Bar

I think that I might have been here too many times and been tired of this here - but I haven't. The Beach Bar continues to be a wonderful spot on the coast near Ao Yon and in the South of Phuket.

Over the last few years there has been a steady increase in the amount of people coming here and also the amount of growth along this road BUT nothing has taken away the beauty of this place.

The service is consistently good and this matches the food - every time, but we have started getting their earlier (5:30pm) because it has become so popular.

I hope this continues to be successful and they seem to be open for a longer period around the year.

The beach becoming a location for a wedding in Phuket...

I promised some food photographs so here they are - delicious...

All with a cold beer (of course)

Baan Had Rawai / Rawaila Seafood Restaurant (ราไวย์ล่า ซีฟู๊ด)

This is a spot that we take Thai friends who are visiting us but don't necessarily live in Phuket (and it does not cost too much). The restaurant was at the end of the road (opposite to the market end) but if you are going to look for better prices, lots of fresh fish and a different experience then try the Market end!

However we had family with us, it was close to the beach and an advantage was that it was not too busy!

So as soon as we sat down we were served very quickly - I do like it when this happens - I usually have an extra beer purely because of this...

Thai food is a very social food and sharing the food is one of the highlights - blog with a great many more.

What we ate we were very happy with

Bake - Cherng ta lay

We were looking for breakfast somewhere and we chose here because it the Bake Brand certainly has great cakes. There certainly seems to be a number of these outlets popping up over Phuket but they seem to quickly close down? The outlets are always somewhere which are tastefully decorated in their design and their furniture - our favorite was in Chalong.

So we had set breakfasts today - not quite enamored by the coffee (but the biscuit was tasty).

Then it was time for the yoghurt - which certainly needed the honey.

Then the orange juice - not sure why it was served with a straw?

The cappuccino was wonderfully strong - this was why we came here...

Followed by the BLT for my daughter and we were happy.

Then came the bill...

Southern Coffee - in Big C

Well I sat here whilst my wife went shopping and the convenience was above the quality of coffee.

But the staff were helpful and the Honey Toast kept me busy...
