The Old Town’s Y3 opened as an Airbnb in 2019, just before tourism became veritably nonexistent. So now the owners are channeling their passion for artisanal sourdough bread into a bakery there, too.

Embracing the “less is more” ideal and renamed Yeast and Yawn, it’s a place of minimal interiors and furniture. Picture an apartment feature in Dezeen splashed with fresh-baked breakfast spreads.

Book a stay in one of their cozy, 28-sqm rooms and indulge in homemade breakfast served to your door or just head down to Yeast, their newly opened cafe.

The highlight here is the all-natural bread, which goes through a 16-hour fermentation process to give it a chewy and soft texture.

Try their signature sourdough (THB60 per slice / THB120 per loaf), baked with wild yeast and Japanese flour; the shokupan (THB80 per set / THB180 per loaf) with your choice of spread; and New York-style sourdough bagels (THB60) with cream cheese. For something heartier, dig into their sourdough grilled cheese sandwich (THB160).

There’s a selection of caffeinated and non-caffeinated drinks to pair with your slices. Grab the Yawn (THB80), a sort of dirty malted milk but made with espresso and topped with dark chocolate flakes, or try the rich, smooth double chocolate (THB90), a heavenly blend of Ivory Coast cocoa and French dark chocolate.

The coffee, meanwhile, is brewed with beans from Doi Chang and Doi Pangkhon.
