The team at Villa-Phuket.com is always on the prowl for a great cafe hangout. We love our cakes, coffees (our mornings do not start until we have had at least one decent jolt of caffeine), and
chilling out working at a snug and cosy spot, armed with our laptops and surrounded by aromatic cups of coffee.
After a month of intensive cafe-hopping, we bring you out list of best cafe finds on the tropical island of Phuket:
Café Y Té has all the right boxes ticked when it comes to being the perfect cafe hangout.

True to its name, Delish Cafe dishes up an array of mouthwatering items. Popular among the expatriate community, the cafe draws a crowd of diners keen on tucking into its dishes with relish.
Customers can look forward to savouring homemade burgers. These are not ordinary, mass-made burgers, for they are prepared with an array of top-notch ingredients, such as Australian lamb, Angus beef, free-range Thai chicken and freshly-made dressings. Quiches, crisp salads and decadent cakes are also available on the menu. Round off your meal by downing a glass of fresh juice.
Sleek and chic, Factory Cafe boasts gorgeous interiors inspired by industrial-style designs. Apart from its tastefully decorated setting, the cafe also charms guests with its excellent fare.

Situated along Yaowarad Road, Gallery Cafe by Pinky is a great cafe to hang out at all times of the day. Start your mornings with a buzz by stopping by for a cup of coffee.
Breakfast, the most important meal of the day, is certainly not to be missed here, for you will find a wide selection of tasty items on the extensive menu.

Gallery Cafe welcomes ravenous lunchtime diners with an array of pasta, salads, homemade burgers and Asian mains. Be sure to save some stomach space to indulge in a decadent slice of cake (or two!). Customers who arrive during the cool evenings are in luck, for they will enjoy happy hour prices when they down bottles of cold, refreshing beers.
Step into Mac-Chiato House, and you are greeted with the sight of a well-furnished cafe decked in simple monochrome hues. A fine selection of black-and-white images and pictures adorn the walls, and a book shelf sits close to the back of the cafe. Popular among the locals, Mac-Chiato House attracts a steady crowd during the weekends. Regulars come for a taste of Engie’s scrumptious baked treats, such as the banana cake with chocolate-caramel cream and banana slices, rich brownie and delectable honey toast.
As its name suggests, Rider Cafe welcomes a horde of bike enthusiasts with its selection of meat-heavy dishes, a mighty Harley-Davidson, blues music and friendly atmosphere. Stop by for a satisfying burger, an aromatic cup of Vittoria coffee, and an engaging conversation with Teddy, the amiable owner of the cafe. Guests who do not fancy feasting on burgers may take their pick from the variety of breakfasts, sandwiches, hot dogs, Thai mains and refreshing beverages available on the menu.
Siam Bakery is a gem of a find in Phuket Town. This well-loved bakery earns rave reviews for its selection of French pastries, breads and cakes. Stop over for a delicious breakfast, or arrive for a light lunch of sandwiches and coffee.
