Il Molino, Italian Bakery

Il Molino in Chaweng is my favorite lunch place on the island!

Located on the ring road, just before the Bangkok Samui Hospital and Bangkok Airways main office on the ring road (going from Tesco Lotus direction Lamai) on the other side of the road, they offer small slices of pizza and home made Italian bread tasting exactly the same as if you were in Italy.

Run by Salvatore and Tha, his lovely wife, they have been baking and providing bread to all the major hotels on the island and plenty of other places since 1994.

To come here and have chat with both of them is a nice break in the day and their food is absolutely delicious.

They offer a extensive menu with various breads and salads and slices of pizza and many times they offer specials, like lasagna.

Outside they have a very nice sitting area where you can enjoy your meal, together with some excellent coffee, cappuccino or espresso.

Here's a small selection on what's on offer, the slices of pizza in the front left are amazing and they come with various toppings.

Their daily bread was just being delivered 10 minutes before I arrived, otherwise the whole picture would've covered in bread!

Besides their menu, they also have some exclusive Italian imported cheeses and sausages for sale.

Well worth a visit and highly recommended by me and they were long overdue on my blog!

Ja Monique,

De hele echte, niet echt goedkoop maar wel origineel!

Kom je wel eens weg daar uit Baan Taaling Ngaam? ;-)

Ja, soms graven we ons wel eens uit en gaan richting Nathon of Lamai! ;) Zelden richting Chaweng eigenlijk of 't moet naar Tesco of Big C zijn, maar aangezien er nu ook een kleine Tesco in Nathon ligt, wordt ook dat ritje steeds minder. Met al dat toenemende verkeer rijden we zo'n 45 minuten naar Tesco in Chaweng, niet normaal meer! Ja, ik weet 't, we doen er zelf aan mee met onze auto ... :(

Hoi Monique,

Hahaha, ik weet precies hoe je je voelt! Heb hetzelfde gevoel over het toenemende aantal auto's maar heb er zelf ook een en gebruik hem ook veel (te veel).
