Can not ask for more in an island. Nice ice cream and smoothie in very local way. nearby Dinh Cau night market so easy to pass by or relax after shopping. Nice place if you would like to sit on a sofa (which is very rare in Phu Quoc) ^^

I suggest a new menu where half the items arent taped over. New zealand natural ice cream and great drinks. Food is pretty nice, fair price. No complaints. My girlfriend had an iced coffee with a scoop of macadamia ice cream in, very good. The guys that work there are great, especially the older guy. The menu says ice cold... More

A great little spot to sit and watch. We stopped in for a late lunch and a few drinks. Staff were friendly, food was good and the drinks cold.

We wanted a place with good vibes, tourist advise and amazing ice cream- we found it! Staff were helpful and it's a great place to relax over a coffee, a mix of cultural food and of course ... NZ ice cream which made of day!

We had the pancake w/bacon combo and the healthy breakfast combo, both with Viatnamese iced coffee. Both we delicious and met our expectations AND for our toddler's "need" for pancakes. The syrup container was pretty small, so I just asked for more. There's definitely something for the whole family. I'd be perfectly happy starting my day there every morning of... More

We found ourselves using Buddy Ice Cream Cafe as a rest spot during our week in that area. Located near the night market, it's a good spot to sit down and people watch outside while sipping on a nice cold beer. Prices were a bit pricey compared to your typical Vietnamese restaurants on the island but that's expected seeing they... More

Needed a cool drink in sweaty Duong Dong! First proper coffee (Lavazza 60k) for two weeks deserves the 5 stars on its own! Plus an ice cold passion fruit juice (45k). Refreshed and ready for the humid streets again. Kids milk shakes 35k.

Lovely banana smoothie 😊 Prices on the menu seemed to be quite good also, but I just made a short pit stop.

We arrived to Phu Quoc tired and I was full of cold, I wanted some familiar food and was feeling sick and tired. My son had choc chip ice cream with Oreos and I opted for a simple club sandwich. Once I had gotten over the simple custom of men being served first (there were others in our group that... More
