An oasis among the overpriced, beach resort restaurants. 

This is an oasis among the overpriced, beach resort restaurants in the Phang Nga area. Cafe Kantary Koh Yao Noi (, on an island in Phang Nga Bay, is like its siblings in Phuket, Chiang Mai, Sriracha and elsewhere in that it takes a simple thing and does it well.

The crowd favorite is the decadent, thick butter toast slathered in honey, topped with ice cream and a dollop of whipped cream (B170). Also worth your time is the classic margarita pizza (B220) made without tiresome twists and embellishments.

We’ve yet to have a bad pastry here, and the menu’s broad enough to make it a good family pick. Next time you’re on the island, look out for this stand-alone house white-washed in Mediterranean style.
