We ate at Coconut Monkey every day for breakfast and lunch, would have eaten there for dinner too if it didn’t close at 5pm. The coffee is fabulous, all the food is made fresh with quality ingredients and you can tell as it is so...tasty. To be honest I have no idea how it can be made so cheap. 60 THB for 2 poached eggs on fresh whole meal bread - wow! I tried most of the menu vegetarian and meat, there wasn’t a dish I didn’t like. Some if my favourites were the roasted vegetable quesadilla, spaghetti and meatballs, homemade beef chili bowl, and of course the salted caramel cheesecake. We were diving and food was prepared quickly even if we needed to take away. The staff are super friendly, even when they are rushed off their feet. The location right on the sea front is a stunning way to start the day! Love it!More

Cool, friendly beach cafe with comfy chairs. Great breakfasts, salads, smoothies, coffee and tasty one bite snacks to help you keep your diving energy up. Just next to Master Divers the cafe offers friendly service with a smile. Good range of options for vegetarians and...vegans but also some decent beef chilli! Loved it look forward to coming backMore

Whether eating in the restaurant with my dog or getting a takeaway lunch to take on the boat while diving, Coconut Monkey was great. Also their refillable kombucha bottle deal was a staple of my holiday trip.

The atmosphere is just what you'd want from a beach front cafe, welcoming and comfortable with a mix of tables and chairs, sofa spaces and Thai triangle cushions facing out to the water. The breakfasts are great, so is the coffee and the smoothies are...also filling enough for a mid morning pick-me-up. Khap kuhn kra!!More

Totally delicious! Had options for my carnivore husband too. We had a coconut money shake, spaghetti vegan meatballs, cashew carrot salad, chicken quesadilla and salted caramel cheesecake and for the wholesome delicious homemade dishes, it was reasonably priced at 570 baht. Would be back every...day if I could (hubby would complain). Great beach views and it was very busy!More

Delicious food, really good ambient and decoration, right next to the beach. Really good vegan and vegetarian food, amazing smoothies and deserts too. And very good price to quality. You can eat a meal for around 100 baht, even less :) Definitely worth a visit.

This place is amazing for vegan and conscious eaters, a big menu and prices are reasonable ( they do offer some meat options). For example a smoothie or juice is actually 40 baht cheaper than in another similar restaurant. Amongst the one you would expect...in this type of restaurant you can also find the Burmese tea salads, vegan snickers, bannofee, lemon cheesecake...the vibes is also a plus, very relaxing on the beach, with different seatings types and you can have the kids play on the beach while you enjoy your coffee. Staff seems to enjoy working there too so it’s another good sign! We love their banana bread so much that we actually bought them a loaf!More

Great restaurant. Smoothies and baking are awesome. Do not miss out on their cappuccinos. The best on the island. And check out their chocolates. This is a must if you are on Koh Tao
