“Nice coffee and tastiest brownies ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Came by this cozy and stylish cafe while taking a walk through the town. Tasty irish coffee and a homemade ice-cream brownie to die for. Atmosphere is unique. Would return!

“Low grade sandwiches , OK coffee”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

My son and I went to breakfast at the cafe. The sandwiches we had little in common with the sandwiches pictured on the sign. Instead of good bread, they were made on the cheapest bland bread. Instead of having melted cheese, they were barely warm. Instead of good quality ingredients they were a thin slice of ham and some processed cheese. very disappointing. I had a coffee frappe which was thin. My so had a whipped coffee drink with fruit on the bottom. The coffee part of that tasted very good. unfortunately, I hadn't been looking for a sweet drink so that wasn't what I ordered.

“so-so coffee shop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

We had a short stop at Pirrera for some drink and snack just before our dinner. However, we were not so impressed with the overall. It is supposed to be one of the famous coffee shop in Phuket but what we got to taste was just really on average. But things can be expensive here as compared to the location and what we get, e.g. THB100 for a glass of iced chocolate and THB139 for a piece of brownie and a commercial scoop of ice-cream. Anyway, not a bad place to stop by if you happen to be around the area. Otherwise, no need for a specific visit.

“Nice location, food and coffee average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Of the many cafes in Phuket town this is the one that we liked the least. Ok, the house is beautiful on the corner of Yawoarat road but the cakes and the coffee are just below average. Ok for one time but we are not coming back. Much better options around...

“Unique, relaxing cafe bar....beautiful cakes!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

If you visit Phuket Town and need a coffee break/lunch, I can certainly recommend the unique Pirrera Cafe Bar.

The cafe bar is located at the corner of Yaowarat and Dibuk Roads in an amazing Sino-Portuguese building of days gone by. The architecture of the building is truly unique and worthy of photograph.

The entrance to the cafe bar is very attractive and enticing, painted in lovely pastel colours with interesting window details. Once inside you find a relaxed, easy going atmosphere with a number of small tables plus, in a corner of the main room, a small sofa, armchair and coffee table.

The interior decoration is unique and interesting comprising of an intriguing mix of art deco ornaments, movie star pictures and black board chalked up with goodies to buy and taste.

The food and drinks are very good and served by friendly, pleasant staff. There is a great selection of beautiful cakes on display ready to be enjoyed by customers. I have since found out that the friendly lady owner was trained at the famous Cordon Bleu cooking school at the Dusit Thani in Bangkok. No wonder the food is very good!!!

Upstairs there is a very large spacious room which was very quiet when I visited in the afternoon but probably busier in the evenings.

There is free WiFi and a selection of magazines on offer to read.

My visit to Pirrera Cafe bar was a very good experience and most enjoyable after a busy morning sightseeing.
