The Loaf Bakery & Bistro LangkawiCategory: Mid Range, Bakery & Western Cuisine
The Loaf is a premier bakery in the island and also doubles up as a bistro offering a comprehensive western ala-carte menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The first and the original outlet started in 2006 which is located at the Perdana Quay in Telaga Harbor Park. Subsequently they have opened up several outlets in different places in Malaysia.
A second outlet has come up recently in Langkawi in Cenang Mall at Pantai Cenang.
At the core, The Loaf is a bakery which produces excellent handmade bakery products like bread, pastries, cookies and jams using traditional but complex Japanese methods. They have been using chemical free and high quality ingredients that are both imported and locally sourced.
The main outlet at Perdana Quay is on the boardwalk and facing the harbor. It has both indoor and out door seating. But during the day time, the air-conditioned comfort inside would draw most of the guests indoor and fill up the seats. As you walk in through the door, there are sofas at the right corner. Those are the first seats to get grabbed. However the outside seats offer wonderful view of the water and activities on the boardwalk. Ideal in the evenings.

There is a glass counter inside with many different types of breads, cakes and pastries on display. You can either go down to the glass counter and get stuff for yourself, or just take a seat and let the waiter take your order. The service is quite good and friendly. The ambience is relaxed and very comfortable. The toilet is also clean and well maintained.
So what kind of bakery products do you get at The Loaf? Actually Plenty...
In breads you get different types of brioche, butter rolls, croissants, quiche & tart, semi hard bread, hard bread and soft breads. They come with wide range of flavors and preparations. Some of our favorites are tuna puff, cheese onion cashew nut, and of course the great garlic bread.
