My experience was terrible. Ordered a big breakie, Pancakes and 2x mochas. Big breakie came with a coffee but not a mocha and had to buy another coffee to get a mocha (no add ons). Paid 800 Baht together. Overall food was terrible, coffee was ok and the staff was extremely rude (especially the owner who sat in the back... More

When we are in Kata Beach we go for a coffee or cappuccino in this bar. Sometimes we have an extra breakfast here. The quality of the food is very good. The cappuccino is made perfectly and also the croissants and rolls are big and delicious. Service could be a bit slow sometimes but this beacuse ususally it is quite... More

Came in 2 mornings in a row asked for a small Espresso in Thai....same girl was unresponsive and robotic....no emotions border line unfriendly. Espresso was OK nothing to write home about! Certainly the name doesn't live up to expectations!

Feeling sitting in front a cappuccino like at an Italian Bar. Owner or manager very kind, do not forget to have a slice of handmade cake with.

Visited this place twice with my family. First time had sandwiches for dinner, which were OK although pricey; dessert also fine. Second time just ordered coffee - and it was awful. All in all, the price is rather high for what you get.

I popped into this place with my partner because we read such good reviews. We both ordered a latte each which an extra shot of espresso. We expected to pay a bit more for the extra shot but when we got our bill we had been charged for 4 lattes. I think that this is disgusting. We would have loved... More

Food average, if you like strong coffee it's one if the better choices Lots of Italian, French tourists and they all smoke so its not my favourite environment, when you are having coffee and cake and all you can smell cigarette smoke. It that doesn't worry you this is a popular meeting place

This is an excellent and vibrant breakfast cafe which even managed to cater for gluten free and also for a vegan option if you ask the waitresses. Highly recommended! Perfect location too!

Today we get a really good breakfast Cornetto chocolate is just perfect. Coffe espresso is also good but not perfect as cornetto. If i can suggest, give opportunity to customer to choose between italian brand coffe (illy, lavazza or whatever) and local coffe.

Least friendly place we visited with slow service and sour faces. However, food is good and cake was excellent. Maybe just a bad day for the waiters. Staff inside cafe , far friendlier. Also a nice breakaway from Thai food when you're a bit tired of noodles and rice.
