“Name?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

The correct title is THE Baguette.
It is the Cha Am branch of a very popular Hua Hin bakery.
The products are varied covering not only bread.
The coffee is excellent.
ONLY complaint is the location is NOT on the ocean road

“a little bit of Europe in Thailand`”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

A real European-style bakery and cafe! Open daily from 8am to 6pm.

Nearly at the bottom of Narathip (aka Chicken) Street, only a few blocks from the intersection with Cha-am Beach Road. Plenty of parking (unlike their first branch, on the way to Hua Hin).

Everything is take-out or eat-in as they have a European-style, air-conditioned cafe - with European standard toilets! Usually plenty of seating, inside and outside, even at lunchtime.

Real French baguettes, various other breads, croissants, pastries (danish, strudel, etc), cakes, individual savory pies, all baked every morning, all made with butter. The best items are usually sold out by 1pm. Apparently you can even buy 80% baked baguettes for keeping in the freezer until you want to eat them.

There's a refrigerated section with various hams and German sausages (knackwurst, cervelat, fleischwurst, debrciner, wienerli). They also have butter (but not imported butter, which tastes much better) plus Gouda and Edam cheeses.

You can sit down to enjoy real, strong, delicious coffee (huge 2-shot cappuccinos, but we ask for 3 shots as we like our coffee very strong) as well as shakes and juices.

They also offer breakfasts and (later) burgers (not very good and small, snack-sized) and spaghetti (also disappointing) plus great, fresh sandwiches with a choice of fillings, such as salami, ham, cheese (Gouda/Edam), spiced beef, egg mayonnaise, and more.

We prefer it to their first branch near Golden Place except that there are no English newspapers here, even though they have them in the first branch, which gives it more of a cafe-atmosphere.

Also worth knowing about: About 300-400 meters away (travelling away from the beach), on the same road but on the other side, there's OK supermarket with a feast of Western products that you can't find in the 7/11s. Be careful though, the last imported butter we bought from them was rancid.
