Pirrera Cafe (closed)


This was a place which we had seen grown slowly amongst other places - The Pirrera Cafe. The Pirrera Cafe is in the heart of Phuket Old Town and is very convenient if you are wandering about - they also serve food.

The Cafe is on the corner of a crossroads which has given it character. The owner has subsequently added more character by putting a table outside at the crossroads and the way that it has been furnished.


Upstairs there are a few chairs and table, none of which are strictly matching - and there is also the opportunity to sit on cushions on the floor, I don't know if it is meant for that though? We have (to be fair) never seen anyone upstairs here and I do not know whether it is actually simply for decorative reasons?

Downstairs is also very similar but it does seem to be organised in a fashion to make it work - and it does. We were very comfortable at our table and we were taken care off smoothly, thank you.




The food - a salad and a Thai dish were nothing more than ordinary and there was a lot of green with the prawn salad that we shared. There was quite a large selection but we could not get the feeling that this was not 'really' a restaurant but a coffee shop serving food...


The coffee was the winner here - thank you. The coffee was reasonably strong and it had flavour, just a tiny bit of sugar needed here. Then we were able to relax and look at all of the little bits that had been organised here - there are certainly things to find - Yorkshire tea anyone?

Next time just a cup of coffee and one of those wonderfully looking cakes!
