A bakeshop next to Centara Grand Beach Resort is Zing. This is a bit pricey as compared to other cafes but the service is good and the menu shows a lot of promise. They sell delicious breads here and if you like croissants, muffins, and bagels, this is a cozy nook to check out. Its setting is very beautiful, making it the best place to have your favorite cup of coffee.
Zing is often raved about because of its sandwiches. They have salami, tuna, and grilled chicken sandwich. They also serve Parma ham sandwich.

A really cute European style cafe at Chaweng Beach is Samui Delice. Unlike most places that open around 10 am,this cafe opens early—around 7 am so you can stop by if you want to have breakfast or buy some bread to go. You will love its charming interiors, which in weird way makes you want to think of ice cream. Diners love it here because there is a wide selection of baked goods and the service is quick.
Samui Delice sells cakes for different occasions so if you are looking for something to celebrate your birthday, anniversary, or what have you, simply stop by and pick from their yummy cakes. They have black forest cake, strawberry cake, chocolate, and many more. They also serve the best lemon tart.
Other stuff we love at Samui Delice are their eclairs. These taste amazing and come in chocolate and coffee flavors. We also like their tiramisu, which is creamy and addictive. Typical combos here include an order of their latte along with their croissant. For a few baht, you will have your French goodies fix. They also sell baguette, fruit mousse, and croque Monsieur. If you want something quick try one of their baguette sandwiches. These are filling and offer great value for money.
Other items on the menu include burgers, omelets, fries, salads, and ice cream. Their food taste homemade and are priced just right. If you want to chill after touring or are in need of a nice caffeine fix, this is highly recommended.
