I have been here a few times and every time the food, and service is exemplary. Particularly like the chicken salad sandwich with bacon served with potato salad.

I love their grill chicken sandwich and blue cheese chicken sandwich so much especially their Homemade wheat bread. If anyone travelling to Koh Lipe must visit to this cafe and try their sandwich ( Remember to order wheat bread)

Good location, nice friendly service and good range of drinks, cakes and cookies.... oh.......and books! They are about to close and move over to the other side of Walking Street, so it should get even better in nice new, bigger premises.

As mentioned in the title we've had there breakfast every day during our stay at Koh Lipe. We loved the homemade muesli and their coffee. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Be aware of the operation hours from 8am - 5pm every day!

I absolutely loved this place, all the breakfast food and drinks were fantastic, they even had decent bacon, cooked just how you want it! The homemade muesli was also great, really tasty. The place had a lovely atmosphere, surrounded by books and all the staff were brilliant, proper service for a change. Nothing was too much trouble and it was... More
