Simple and charming.

Just had breakfast at About Cafe, having strolled along the beach and on to 'walking street'. A great little find with good wifi and nice breakfast coupled with good speedy service.

It was such a pleasure to find this cafe in Mae Nam. We visited every day. Wonderful place to chill, enjoy the free wifi and get your wake-up caffeine fix for the day ahead.

About Cafe sits at the end of Moo 1 lane. Easy to miss it as this quaint looking cafe blends it with the row of shops. Serves food mostly apt for breakfast. Portion is moderate but could be improved upon. Coffee is good as they use various beans. Try the coffee and banana shake - something different to wow your... More

The decor was cute but the food was very basic, as was the coffee which is contrary to many of the reviews I saw before our visit. it's doing its best to be a western cafe in Thailand but it's just not quite getting there.

This place was cool. The service is AMAZING. Possibly the best Service in Koh Samui. Everyone always greets you with a smile. As far as ambiance it's an adorable coffee house and hip, the space is open, tables are medium the clientele is mostly friendly and highly attractive (I am including myself in this), because the tables are massive, you...

About Café, a small place for breakfast at Mae-nam beach. Wonderful breakfast with worth price. I love to have the homemade yogurt, waffle and pancake with tea. For me, it was a very good taste of the Mae-nam beach. The owner gave us a very warm welcome also Moo-Noom, her dog. The Retro decoration let me think of my old... More

Great waffles and pancakes. Nothing like your typical batters from 5-6 star hotels (which can taste good), rather this is a down to earth goodness.

This venue is quite local for us and after reading reviews I knew we had to visit. The food and drink selections are excellent, there's so many items to choose from and the coffee is freshly ground too. Staff are always friendly and speaking English has never been an issue. Inside the cafe there's lots of niknaks you'll look around... More
