Great place and inexpensive.

For a small place with only a couple of staff this offers excellent food including sandwichs.Relax in the hammocks and let time drift by. Very popular in the evenings but does not stay open late.

The service was great, however, the curries were rather soups and the red curry was yellow in color. Dont get me wrong. The taste was good but if we had the choice we would have ordered the burger or so. You can get better curries around.

We came here after reading the positive reviews by our fellow travelers, who complemented their coffee. Honestly, it's mediocre. I had a latte, wife ordered a cappuccino and the kids had hot chocolates. There is better coffee elsewhere on the island and elsewhere in Thailand. What's surprising is that the coffee itself was clearly a cheap blend even though Thailand... More

I love, love this place. The breakfasts here are awesome (fruit salad and pancakes especially), and the service is always excellent. Such a friendly group of staff and the most adorable cats. I also have to mention the music - after months of travelling, it was nice to land somewhere that had such a great variety of well known and... More

We stayed in Kantiang for about a month and came here a lot, especially for breakfast. Food covers the gamult of Thai classics and Western comfort food and both are cooked pretty well, although nothing necessarily stands out as especially memorable. Personally I felt that as far as hip and backpacker/tourist joints go, Kampong over the road has the edge... More

This little "coffee shop" as it's titled on tripadvisor is so much more than just coffee. Amazing breakfast, lunch, and dinner- we were back for every meal of the day. At breakfast we recommend the breakfast sandwich, served on a homemade "English muffin" which was really an incredible homemade biscuit. The home fried potatoes served with grilled onion are amazing... More

The Thai food was ok but not outstanding. The service was pretty slow but maybe it as because the restaurant was full on the night we went. Good if you have kids as the menu is broad and caters for non-Thai food lovers

This was definitely the best burgers I had on Koh Lanta! and Thailand for that matter. Nice service, small and cozy place... only minus was the noise, we could not really have a conversation during our visit due to the music and the traffic. Still worth a burger!
