After walking in the midday soaring heat of Vietnam we saw this place and decided to check it out. The menu was good and they had ICECREAM!!! So we sat down and ordered a hamburger made of Australian imported beef and some springrools. It was hard to communicate that I wanted the hamburger well done(i do not take risks with... More

The coffee and shakes here are great! Well located and friendly staff. Nice atmosphere and good wifi. Food is very good too. It's a very tourist spot, so the prices are pretty expensive by Vietnam standards but it's definitely worth a visit.

Very expensive even for Phu Quoc Island which is expensive compared with the rest of Vietnam. We had a couple of beers, a burger and a pathetic Cheese sandwich (and they managed to get the order wrong) and it came to 180,000 VND. I know this does not seem much by normal standards but we have eaten so much better... More

Great coffee drinks, good ice cream, friendly service and consistent wifi. What more can you ask from a cafe set in the middle of a busy island town? I didn't eat any food at Buddy's but I stopped in several times for a coffee, and once had an ice-cream shake that cooled me off in the heat of the day.... More

If you miss european style cafe where you can take a cup of a nice cappuccino or latte with cake then it's definitely should be your choice. Cheesecake and ice-cream are very tasty and they serve good coffee. Staff is very pleasant and welcoming. They also have wi-fi and even 2 pc you can use during your visit. Coffee is... More

Foreign owned but run very hands off. Staff have trouble taking orders in English. Food delivery is slow. It's like you are interrupting something important going on. Lots of staff on hand but they aren't interested. Breakfast menu is all I looked at, pretty uncreative if you are looking for a western breakfast.

Me and my boyfriend had been reading about this place and we really wanted to give it a try, so it was the first place we visited on phu quoc when arriving. My boyfriend being british was really excited to try the fish and chips, and me not being that hungry ordered the springrolls. The springrolls were surprisingly fast, they... More

Hi There, I would normally say thanks for the feedback but taking into account you have said nothing to us at the time of your visit but rather created a TA account just to make ONE untrue review makes me extremely suspicious of your intentions. We are in business more than 8 years and these kind of baseless, false reviews... More

The service is great from all staff here! The cappuccino was average, shakes were good; ice coffees and Frappuccinos were also good. Sandwiches and spring rolls were OK.
