Sweet cakes and puddings are easy to come by, but hard to perfect. This month we found three places that really show off the skills of their makers and bakers.
For all those cheesecake fans out there, where better to visit if you are in the Nimmanhaemin area than Say Cheese. The name obviously speaks for itself, but apart from cheesecakes such as the classic New York cheesecake, the chocolatey Oreo cheesecake or everybody’s favourite blueberry cheesecake, the caf? has a range of other sweet treats and curiously named coffees and teas just waiting to be paired with the right dessert. Some of their special coffees include the curious butterscotch latte, the sweet rocky road cappuccino or the naughtier Irish cream latte. Other sweet treats include brownies, rainbow crepe cakes or homemade banoffee pies. Keep visiting as the cheesecake flavours change all the time, and experience something new as you work your way through the curious menu at Say Cheese.
Open 11am – 11pm

Coco Corner Coconut
At the newly opened Coco Corner Coconut shop, lovers of all things coconut will go crazy. Coco Corner uses the best quality coconuts in Thailand, sourced from many provinces to ensure all their products are of top quality. As you may have guessed, everything is coconut themed, with a traditional coconut ice-cream at only 35 baht a scoop, a coco pie with delicious fresh coconut, coconut sundaes and the massively indulgent coco pudding — rich and creamy but still vegan, so everyone can enjoy it. Just look out for the giant coconut on the side of the shop just next to the middle crossroads. Check-in and get a further 10% off your order too!
Open 11am – 9pm
Soi 13, Nimmanhaemin Road
Jardin d’été is quite special. Only recently opened in the grounds of Suan Pak near the airport, Jardin d’été is owned by a cute couple Jane and Don, who met each other while studying at Le Cordon Bleu London. With such a distinguished diploma under their belts, the couple moved back to Chiang Mai and opened up their very own European style cafe, with cakes and drinks inspired by their time in the UK. Try their authentic apple crumble for a true British pudding, or tuck into a creme brulee made with real vanilla pods. The pair have even graduated from the University of Gelato in Italy — so expect the real deal when it comes to their creamy homemade Gelato ice cream at just 65 baht a scoop. Some favourite flavours are the dark chocolate, hazelnut and forest berry. Wash it all down with a pink lemonade (made with their home grown lemons), or a hazelnut mocha for those wanting a delicious caffeine burst.
Open 10am – 8pm
