Cafe del Sol


Cafe Del Sol is a trendy new Cafe (coffee shop) in Phuket Old Town. I chose to have a cappuccino and a mango smoothie. Lovely cappuccino and served with the traditional breakfast nibbles (Tao Sor). This was wonderful.



Then it was time for the mango smoothie - delicious. 



We sat outside but there is the opportunity to sit inside - we liked watching the traffic drive past.



Inside the floor was a little more glamorous / cultural.



Then there were small macaroons to nibble.



We could also buy some Tao Sor to take home with us!



I hope that this place is still open the next time that I choose to go in - so many small Cafe's open in Phuket Town but don't last...

Address: Dibuk Road, Phuket Town

ก๋วยเตี๋ยวต้มยำกุ้งมะนาวไข่หวาน


Do you want some traditional Thai noodles?

Come here - everyone from the surrounding colleges does - i felt positively old when I was in here!!



Maybe that is the reason for the Free WiFi poster?

So if you want anything which i popular to the young Thai's taste and wallet then I suggest that you visit here... No Honey Toast here though.



It does win my best vote for the best something in Phuket though -  Iced Tea in Phuket though.



Anyway the service was quick and very happy (usually a good reflection on the quality of the food). Certainly worth taking the walk and search for...

Gluay Nam Wa (Chao-Fa Rd)



To tell you the truth this is not my favourite choice...



BUT when I saw that there was a Happy Hour I was overjoyed 



AND I could choose two different coffees...



The atmosphere is very comfortable - with scattered toys seemingly all over the place. There is a great selection of coffees and it really is worth popping in if it is convenient...

ก๋วยเตี๋ยวต้มยำ ชากังราว - Cha Kang Raw


ก๋วยเตี๋ยวต้มยำ ชากังราว was certainly a different noodle house that I was used to for when I usually visit one in Phuket.



This was clearly a noodle house aimed at the younger generation - look at the notice board.



It was not difficult to choose what to eat when we got the menu



- there was a great deal of choice. This may be a little detracting for people looking for 'authentic' and 'cultural' but we wanted some tasty noodles... 



Which is what we got!



There was the opportunity to try some Korean Ramen Noodles. So if you are looking at the noodles cooked in the old style and with some of the extras for the new generation - Free WiFi and Korean ice-cream then this is a good choice.



Loved finding these very common noodle bowls here...

T Origin and Pang Hom Chui



T Origin and Pang Hom Chui are Thai companies which have recently sprung up around Phuket. This outlet was opposite Bangkok Hospital.



It seems to be a type of Roadside Cafe selling Thai pastries with a Western Twist - always in for a new place whilst my wife was at the hairdressers I tried something...



This was a small coffee shop bar with two seats - this was T Origin.




Outside of here they were deep frying bits that people were having for breakfast and there was certainly a steady stream of people for these bits - this was Pang Hom Chui.




There was not a lot more than I could see to indicate whether they served anything more but what I had then perfectly fitted someone who needed a small nibble.  I had some waffles and and Iced Tea - just enough for someone wandering in Phuket Town.

After visiting this outlet and on posting this I saw that there were 8 more outlets to visit.

Pancake Corner



Pancake corner is a place that I have visited a number of times and I was surprised that I hadn't posted a visit on here.

It has a wonderful position adjacent to a roundabout so it was very easy to pop in to grab something. There are tables to sit at and there are stools if you want to sit around and watch out the window as the traffic goes by - sitting here was my favourite choice.


There does seem to be a larger menu but I simple chose from the pictures on the wall!

So what is there to eat? Well there is certainly a selection but I have only ever had the drinks and a pancake dish - both very nice but the pancakes are a little on the small side



The pancakes were very nice and certainly looked good.



Clean, organised, convenient, tasty and a little expensive.
