After reading the great reviews I thought I'd give this place a go. The place is beautiful and really modern. My juice was yummy but I ordered eggs benny and the eggs were so under cooked the whites were completely raw and the muffin was doughy and floury. Such a shame because the vibe was great.

A really chic little cafe restaurant down a little alley just off Patong beach. It was like being in Melbourne with the polished concrete floors and wooden bench top tables. Good food and reasonable prices for western food which is far more expensive than the local fare generally. Worth a visit for the quick and friendly service.

Visited this place three times during out stay in Patong. Located on a quieter side street off the main Patong strip, this place offers western and Thai meal options in a modern (steel, wood and concrete type interior) setting - all to a soundtrack of excellent beach house music playing softly in the background. :) Staff is friendly and attentive...

This place is so lovely! Relaxing area in a good atmosphere different for the normal food at Patong beach. Visit it many times doing my three months stay to get some nice and healthy food! Especially the breakfast, sandwiches and tacos are fantastic! Will defiantly recommend this place to everyone!!

Located on Soi Post Office, a little bit after the famous Vayo Massage Parlor, Ella bar is kind of different with a nice decor and atmosphere. A boutique hotel with affordable drinks and some things to eat also. It's away from beach road so it's more relaxing to sit there if you want something more quiet.

Had a beautiful dinner here (group of 9) food was lovely and fresh. Martinis made a welcome change from the normal cocktails on offer. Service was great . Location at end of lane meant that it was quiet with no traffic noise. Lovely room - hope to visit again.

Low key, minimalist, great food and music. Located at the end of one way street just off the main drag Ella is relaxing, quiet yet interesting. I've only ever snacked there but the food was great every time and they have mastered the art of coffee as well. Great of the streets and have a break at Ella's
