“Exactly what you would expect to find on a small little island”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

If you are looking for Starbucks then this isn't your place, but if you want to discover a local little bakery that serves excellent pastries, this is it. We rode our bikes here two mornings in a row and really enjoyed soaking in the village feel and small island charm of this little bakery. What you get to try depends on the time of day you arrive. We weren't able to try any cheesecake because it hadn't arrived yet, but both days we had really good pastries and really nice coffee. The girls working there are lovely as well.

“Awesome Bakery for breakfast”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

Friendly German Baker Family. Great pastries and coffee! Very close to Jungle Hill - 400meters north. Very pleasant outdoor seating area set back from the road.

“Good coffee with a lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

Good coffee, great pastries and very friendly staff, this place will put a smile on your face. The mango cheesecake was delicious! The upstairs lounge is a good place to watch the villagers and tourists go about their daily routines.

“Just what you want on a lovely island.”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

Lovely. Like the island, laid back and few tourists. If you want to choose from twenty types of coffee and a skinny please don't go there, I'm pleased to say nowhere on Koh Jum caters for that.
Friendly owners, simple coffee, in the garden, possibly a pastry, beautiful.

“Good selection”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

A newcomer to the island is a bakery with fresh bread, pastries and cakes. A bit pricey for Thai standard, but good value for foreigners. Good quality.
