A French-style bakery where you can get a quick yet filling start to your day.
Siam Bakery brings a piece of Paris to Phuket. This humble bakery is the place for a quick and easy breakfast before your day of exploring Old Phuket Town.
Ambience & Amenities
The pastries in Siam Bakery’s window will have anyone stopping to take a look. Once you’re through the doors, the cakes in the chilled cabinet will make the decision even harder of what to order. There are a handful of tables in this narrow space, including a snug, pillowed bench in the back corner. The decor looks old-fashioned and not very cozy. It’s inviting enough to spend just enough time eating your croissant and leave.
The washroom is at the back to the left of the staff-only double doors. It’s a single room with a sitting toilet with toilet paper. There was good soap at the sink and paper towels to dry hands.
Not surprisingly, the focus of Siam Bakery’s menu is breakfast. There are a couple of pages of baguette, croissant and bagel sandwiches that would be perfectly appropriate for a light lunch or afternoon snack. If you’re dining in, water costs 20 Baht for a 500ml bottle. There are also three beers listed on the menu if you want to start your drinking early.
The Coconut Milk Green Tea (90 Baht) is just that, coconut milk with matcha powder. It’s totally unsweetened and has a bitterness from the matcha. It was a bit difficult to drink, and I would have preferred some sweetness to make it more palatable. This drink is really heavy because of the coconut milk, and too much for first thing in the morning.
Both croissant Sandwiches (115 Baht each) were identical, except for the meat fillings we got. The sandwiches were filled with fresh lettuce, tomato, and raw onion, which wasn’t as overpowering as we expected. The croissant was buttery and flaky without being too crispy.
We also got an Apple Crumble (50 Baht) and Custard Danish (50 Baht) for takeaway as a snack later. Both pastries were a good size for their price, and Siam Bakery did not skimp on the fillings.
Siam Bakery was our second choice of breakfast places in Old Town to return to, but we chose The Neighbours Cafe instead. Nothing is pricey here, but the pastries especially are good value for their quality and size. The service was functional but speedy, with the croissants arriving within ten minutes. Anyone who needs a quick and tasty start to their morning should visit Siam Bakery.
