Great attentive staff- excellent ice coffee

This place is great- comfy sofas, free wifi, information centre, fantastic staff and the best ice coffee. I had a burger which is great too! Boyfriend likes icecream and crepes and loves this place. We came here EVERY day on our holiday often twice a day. Will be leaving today and will miss it!!!!

Ice cream after a meal is always favoured and this place sells decent ice cream with different flavours for me to try. I had the classic ice cream and cake and it was really pleasing, the cake was really chocolatey with vanilla ice cream, a combination that can't go wrong. The service is really slow, because of the crowd and... More

Went for some breakfast and info. The info was great, it saved us some money as instead of going on a boat trip we just hired kayaks. For breakfast, we ordered beans on toast, eggs on toast, and pancakes. The eggs were perfectly poached and delicious. The beans were fine apart from they only gave us a tiny portion which... More

This place looks nice and it is. We came here to have a breakfast, which was ok but took like one hour to got it even there was not that many customers inside. We were sure they had forgot some of our order and asked it, but they had not. It just took a long time, so don't go here... More

Just few steps from the night market and at the opposite of the harbor, so the location is great. Price is lil bit expensive but it's okay when traveling. Staff were friendly. Been here many times and their Western food was really good, such as salad, sandwich, hamburger. They even have free computer and internet for customers :)

We found this by chance when wandering in the town looking for somewhere for coffee. It is a very western style cafe/ice cream parlour and we decided to have a light lunch. The food and service were good and the the other facilities (wifi, toilets etc) worked well. Watching the light but chaotic traffic go by was a bonus.

The main course meals were an utter let down , n the juices were topped up with sugar , so much of it that I couldn't bring myself to have more than 2 sips. The ambience was decent , filled with foreigners .. I guess as the general saying goes ' never eat at a place packed with tourists in... More

It's hard to,find bathrooms in Vietnam that are up to Western standards. But, this little place has clean bathroom and even toilet paper. The food is good. They don't seem to mind if people linger for a while to use the wifi. A great little place. We are glad we happened across it.
