This place has beanbag chairs, hammocks, and even some friendly cats hanging around. Their sandwiches, coffee, and smoothies are tasty and prices are fair (about ฿120 for a sandwich with a side). Highly recommended! (Note that this is an outdoor space, so there is no air conditioning.)

After reading good reviews on DS, we took our bike and reached this lovely little restaurant/coffee shop and its even more endearing area. Set amidst a few shops on both sides of a narrow road, one can feel the easy going smooth Lanta vibe. DS had beautiful hammocks which though looked uncomfortable, but were lovely to sit on. Their menu... More

A very chill restaurant and coffeeshop. Great pancakes! The Vibe is low key. Centrally located on the road along the coastline

Service excellent, food was pretty good, but the highlight of the evening was the people watching. Customers were laying around in bean bags or dangling from the rafters in a couple of 'seen better days' hammocks. All in all, amusing to observe from uncomfortable seats.

Really friendly staff and they house shelter cats, one of them became my best friend and sat on my lap for an hour and gave me lots of love. The coffee is probably the best on the island and the food is top quality too. Lovely hammocks too.

The food is amazing. Everything we got here was delicious and would definitely be had again. The blended Thai tea was our favourite drink and we loved the breakfast sandwich. Our highlight was the teriyaki chicken burger though, which was loaded with teriyaki sauce! The Thai food was also great. The service made it even more delightful to visit along... More

The food was lovely, there was a bit of a fusion thing going on, with Thai and Western food. Definitely recommend the coffee, the Western style pancakes and the Thai curries. There's loads of different places to sit: hammocks, bar stools, chairs and beanbags. Also, nice touch, the menu has little facts about Ko Lanta (e.g. about the short-tailed cats).... More

Ate here a couple of times, a light breakfast and evening meal. The Penang curry is probably one of the best I've ever had, beautiful. Only downside is the lack of seating, get there early as it closes at 9. Well recommended
