Chocolate fondue

The wifi here is great, the ice cream is delicious, and the staff are helpful. Perfect place to pull into when you arrive in a city and have no idea what your plan is but need to figure it out. They have a pretty substantial menu for both western and Vietnamese style food.

If you're missing the modern city life come here. Nothing local about this place but a good starting point for tourists. There is free wifi & the food (western) is decent. Loads of information available in the shop about what to do around Phu quoc.
