U&P Homemade Bakery has secured itself a place in the hearts and stomachs of many locals and expats in the Ao Nang area. Being one of the very few bakeries in town that bakes a good loaf of bread, U&P also have a great array – and display – of pastries, cakes, flatbreads, rolls, buns and even breadsticks to choose from.
They have a fairly extensive menu as well, meaning you can get more than just a decent cup of coffee and croissant in the morning. Lunchtime is sorted with great selection of western and thai dishes – the sandwiches being a firm favourite thanks to the freshness of the bread used and the decent sized portions served up.
