Yangon Bakehouse

Bakery in Yangon

Even though there's now a bigger branch just off Inya Rd, it's still worth dropping by this admirable social enterprise, if you're in this area. It serves delicious bakes, hearty sandwiches, fresh salads and good coffee.

A model enterprise of its kind, the Bakehouse works with disadvantaged women who have fallen on hard times because of debt or family problems, some of them having resorted to sex work. It pays its trainees twice the going monthly wage as well as providing counselling and work skills.
