The crepes are really good and there is alot of choices on what you want inside. My favorite is the tex mex crepe with a stawberry smoothie. Great prices and friendly staff. It can be a lite slow sometimes if there is alot of people since they only have one stove but during lunch time it is usally pretty quiet.

They advertise that crepes start at 39 Baht, but that's only if you only want a crepe with nothing on it. Who wants that? Nobody. Their prices are pretty steep, but the quality is excellent. I had the Philadelphia crepe - with smoked salmon and cream cheese - and added in diced tomatoes. It was loaded with filling and the... More

Had high hopes for this place as they offer something a little different. Sadly not what I was expecting. Too much crepe and not enough filling... and could be cheaper. Also Russian owned... Say no more.

Cute little place. Had an iced tea, iced coffee and a chocolate banana crepe while in ao nang. I wished that the chocolate on the crepe was Nutella and not just chocolate sauce, but it was still good. The people working there are very nice and friendly.

We have had breakfast here twice during our stay. It is a small place, so keep and eye out for the sign. Their crepes are good and fresh, prices are nice too. Nice people running the place. Stop here for a nice quiet breakfast.

This is a little hidden gem in Ao Nang. It is just a small café and does not look attractive. However, the crepe is amazing. We ordered a savory crepe and a sweet crepe as our breakfast. Both the content and the taste are awesome. I will visit Smiling Dog Café if I were to travel to Krabi again.

Found this little cafe from their business card at Haven Massage down the street... We were intrigued by the name, and thought, " let's give them a try..we were a little "phad-Thai out". So glad we did. Don't blink as your walking by, or you will miss it-- so keep your eyes open. GREAT, fresh food-- we tried both savory... More
