My wife stopped in here for a quick drink. The atmosphere was very laid back and welcoming. The menu was what you would expect in a coffee shop and the prices are very affordable. We wanted to go back during our trip for lunch but never made it back down to the marina area.

We ordered the fruit, yoghurt and granola along with smoothies and coffees. Best breakfast we have had in Vietnam. Staff were very friendly and prices were reasonable. Would recommend

Very good Greek Salad (western salads are difficult to find in Vietnam), reasonable prices (not jacked like most places catering to tourists), excellent down-tempo music (Mad Professor), fast WiFi, comfortable, clean.

We visited twice, once for breakfast and once for ice-cream. While there are cheaper places for breakfast, this place is certainly worth the visit. Always seems to be popular with tourists and locals, their coffee is great too.

We stopped into Buddy's to escape the heat while we explored. We were immediately greeted by a friendly waitress. We each had an ice cream and then shared a Vietnamese coffee and a juice. There were many pamphlets and flyers available to us as we planned the rest of our day, waiting for our order. The ice cream was great... More

The best place to get a full English breakfast on the island in a pleasant relaxing ambience overlooking the marina - good way to start a day

Good coffee, western style; good ambience with plenty of local knowledge leaflets/brochures available, as well as some books and magazines; comfy armchairs. Owner seems to be involved with Phu Quoc island beach clean up efforts.
