“Nice for coffee”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Apart from our order being taken incorrectly the drinks here were very nice. The place looked clean and was very modern. The staff were also very friendly!

“Excellent Coffee, with warm smiles”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

I was in Phuket and just happened to hear some fantastic music coming from this bar area, I walked over, I was greeted as soon as I stepped on the floor, the lady that was there, had a very nice cup of coffee prepared with a little cookie on the side, the really cared about what they were doing, she then showed me around the place which was new. I really liked the international feel that it gave, it was open , I felt very welcome there.

“Great place down a side street off the beach”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

This is a lovely cafe, we had a very late breakfast here, the service was great and the food was very good. My boyfriend had the full breakfast (i was a bit jealous) and I had the blueberry pancakes. It's a really calm, relaxed, clean place in the maze of Patong restaurants/ shops and I would certainly have liked to go back for dinner but run out of time.

“great coffee spot in Patong”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

great location, minimalist furnishings, provided a welcome respite from the heat. People can also stay here in the rooms upstairs. We didn't see anyone dining here at night.
