new year trip pt. 4 – cafe hopping in pattaya

LA BAGUETTE

P1030972 copy P1030971 copy P1030973 copy P1030975 copy P1030979 copy P1030980 copy P1030996 copy P1030997 copy P1040012 copy P1040002 copy P1040004 copy P1040001 copy P1040021 copy P1040023 copy P1040033 copy P1030977 copycoffee. people watching. terrace. breeze. sound of newspaper pages turning. early morning. strangers. smell of freshly baked bread. friends. lovers. dogs.

i don’t know about you but just typing up these words put a smile on my face. for me, this is how i would want to start every morning for the rest of my life. maybe it was the peak in the happy hormones due to the good weather, but it was as if all my (sort-of-negative) perceptions about pattaya was turned upside down. despite being in the bustling district of pattaya it doesn’t fail to deliver a cozy-homely ambiance that is nothing short of peace, calmness and tranquility. this oldie but a goodie quaint little french inspired cafe is definitely recommended if you’re in the hood!

now that’s the end to my new year’s trip series. hope you enjoyed it, found it somewhat helpful when planning your trip down to pattaya and last but not least i wish everyone a delicious year ahead!

    Oh, what was that green stuff in the bottle on the fifth picture? It looks interesting :D

    Also these bacon wrapped (right?) enoki mushrooms in the first cafe pictures look amazing. Makes me miss enoki mushrooms so much!

    Your photos always make me hungry :P

    Thanks Annie, great photos and info. Will use them when I get a chance to visit pattaya. Love all your photos as usual but wanted to let you know that I especially liked 2 photos with the 3 smiling ladies (as they were also having their photos taken and you caught them in yours) @ tree tales and another of a Caucasian lady who ‘wore’ a lollipop @ la baguette

      i agree that rainbow cake was almost too pretty to eat! hahaha oh naeun, trust me i’m not skinny at all! all my pictures are so misleading. i don’t know why! hahah but i do try to burn off those calories with some exercise everyday… so that i can eat more without feeling too guilty lol. oh and yes pattaya is probably the second famous to bangkok. though i have to say it’s not an ideal picturesque kind of beach vacay spot!
