Bake n’ Brew
Open daily from 8am to 7pm and situated on Soi Exzyte is the marvellous Bake n’ Brew. First impressions from the outside are impressive, and they do not deceive one iota. A large balcony with modern wooden tables and chairs invite patrons to come in off the street and explore further. The use of glass and wood combine to make Bake n’ Brew bright and airy with a real welcoming feel.
Bake n’ Brew is probably best known for its excellent coffee, they use only the best beans that are a combination of award winning and internationally recognised coffee beans sourced from Bangkok. The distinct flavour and aroma is achieved by beans grown in Chiang Rai, that have been blended with smoother beans from abroad to produce what has been named by many as the finest coffee in Pattaya.
The P&F blend is an award winning coffee blend that comes in espresso and gold medal varieties that have both been endorsed by the IIAC. The well trained baristas operate a state-of-the-art coffee machine that features multi boilers to provide the exact temperature for brewing a perfect coffee.
The “Bake” part of the business are the exceptional cakes, pastries, which are freshly baked on the premises, together with a range of delicious breads. The presentation matches the quality, delicious fancies are proudly served on unique wooden platters for maximum theatrical effect. An array of sizes, shapes, colours and flavours give a mind boggling choice.
The atmosphere, like any good coffee shop / cafe, is laid back with a homely feel. Whether you are sitting watching the world go by on the balcony or relaxing in the back room, or even taking advantage of the air conditioned dining room, the service is personal, friendly but not overly attentive.
If you fancy something a little stronger there is a limited range of cocktails together with beers, ideal to quench one’s thirst on a hot sunny day.
The Thai owners, Tako and Pui, have a terrific command of English, and both studied previously in Australia. Tako studied business and commerce whilst Pui has a Bachelor’s Degree in Hospitality. Their work ethic and service levels reflect this and Bake n’ Brew is a professionally run business.
This enchanting cafe has an extensive international and Thai menu, and all portions are well sized and good value for money. Among the selections are pastas, stews, curries, sandwiches and favourite Thai dishes.
