Food and ambience

A relaxed place to hang out, drink real coffee, eat bistro-style food, grab a drink, buy a used book, play board games, and listen to or play (musicians welcome!) great music. The owners, transplants from San Francisco, serve up western breakfasts, homemade bread & bakery items, salads, sandwiches, burgers, American style pizza, snacks & a special menu just for kids. We also have hand-crafted coffees, fresh fruit juice and smoothies, original cocktails highlighting Thai flavors, ICE COLD beer, wine, and live music every night. Take away is OK! A late night snack, a picnic lunch on the beach, scuba or snorkel trips, or food for a long boat ride. Just tell us what you need. Find us on Walking
