A long long time ago when baked goods were as rare in Chiang Mai as a slice of imported cheese, Nuan Bakery opened it’s first Chiang Mai branch, immediately becoming a hot destination (we are talking 1988 here!). The baking was to then-Thai tastes, but over the years they have adapted their baked goods to suit modern Thai preferences. Visit this iconic bakery’s new branch, sit back and enjoy their classic pastries with a cup of coffee or tea. Coffee is served by a trained barista. The pandan cake is lavishly topped with young coconut making for a super refreshing bite. The chiffon foi tong is another intriguing creation with the added textures of the Thai golden egg yolk threads. There is soft serve ice cream to cool you down on a sunny afternoon and you can order cakes for special occasions.
