I took Chuen to work and then wandered aimlessly around and as I turned the corner I found a new coffee shop at the 'Clocktower Roundabout' in Phuket Town - where the Metropole and Phuket Plearn Wan restaurant is.
I entered and was immediately welcomed by happy staff, pleasant music, giggling school girls and comfortable air-conditioning - a hang out for young people.
There was also a boutique shop connected to it - obviously for me - Chuen can go shopping whilst I have a coffee.
What a cup of coffee - smooth and strong!
(I have been told to try the cakes)
