A pretty cafe on the Walking St with prompt service, colorful and tasty smoothie bowls. Each dish has a corresponding vegetarian option as well. If you are craving for smoothie bowls then this is the only go-to option in Lipe.The prices are steep definitely than...other cafes. American breakfast is also available here. We tried the Morning Glory smoothie bowl and General Tso’s Chicken. Btw the portions are not enough for one if you are really hungry after exploring the island on foot (which mostly all tourists do). This place comes with a strong wifi option.More

I stopped here twice on my way to Sunrise beach for breakfast. The menu is amazing with options to cater for everyone - gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, low carbs and is fresh and made with love. The atmosphere is just right, staff are all very...friendly and offer superb service.More

The menu has such a great selection. After spending 2 weeks eating rice for dinner, it was so good to see more vegetarian options. The guacamole burger was so good. Would highly recommend this place. They have loads of options for breakfast (served until 4pm)...lunch and dinnerMore

Late lunch at Cafe Tropical was one of the best meals we had during our stay. The staff is knowledgeable about their vegan menu and can clearly explain how dishes will be veganized. We ordered Nourish Bowl (tofu), Breakfast Burrito (tofu), and Saitip Tofu Cups....I was so impressed with the dressings and sauce that came with the dishes! The food was delicious, light and fulfilling at the same time. The service was excellent and we did not want to leave. So we ended up with ordering iced Matcha Latte with almond milk and the Chocolate Bliss Ball. We took away several different types of the Bliss Balls earlier, and concluded that the chocolate was our favorite. The prices are on expensive side but still affordable. Highly recommend!More

This place is awesome! Everything from interior to the staff to the food is the best vegetarian on Koh Lipe. Many choices and even a great kids menu. Quick service, always with an honest smile, and great food together with a fresh setup makes this...a place to visit at any time a day from breakfast to dinner.More
