Stopped in the other day for coffee and a sandwich...my long black was excellent and the sandwich was great as well. Really nice to see some options for salads as that is something I've craved in Vietnam! Service was wonderful, wifi was strong, and it's on the road right across from the water so there's a nice view (and breeze!).... More

I have been living in Asia for a while, and it can be hard to track down a decent pancake breakfast. Lucky for me, I found Buddy's! Tasty breakfast, good service, and a lot of good info for exploring the island.

We stopped here because we heard it was a good spot to get a map for the island. We decided to have some breakfast, while somebody took the time to give us some very useful advice about traveling on the island. Definitely the place to go if you want to explore the island by motorbike, but need some tips first.... More

Although I do love Vietnamese coffee it's so great to find a place in Vietnam and especially Phu Quoc that does a great espresso. The fruit, muesli and yoghurt is also a must try. It's a lovely place to relax before or after going to the markets etc. The staff are friendly and atmosphere + decor give a great feeling... More

Buddy is a lovely place to sit and escape the heat with a yummy shake or iced coffee... or even a delicious home-made yogurt! The staff are really helpful and friendly and will give you advice (and a free map) on anything you need to know about Phu Quoc.

Run by an Aussie and his Vietnamese wife. He is a mine of info on the local scene and even makes toasted sangas if you're craving some old fashioned Aussie comfort food.

Went here twice during my stay, first time for the amazing ice cream. The place was actually closed but the staff let us come in and choose to takeaway anyway. Next time for an awesome cooked breakfast with pancakes and real crispy bacon :) Nice cafe with a few souvenirs for sale, book exchange and magazines to read with your... More

Downtown Duong dong (or more like 'downvillage' if it would exist) doesnt't have a lot of upmarket places where the seats are not plastic and tiny, but Buddy's does. Nicely situated on a corner close to the night market, this is a great place to chill put after a day at the beach and a meal at the night market.... More

Nice place located in the heart of Duong Dong. Good selection of sandwiches and great ice cream! If you need a break from the buzzing street's and want to rest with WiFi this is a good place to go.

If you want to chill and spend some time drinking your coffee or having an ice cream, I think this is gonna be the solution: the name can suggest you'll have a very good ice cream, just try!!
