Small walk-in with a few tables along the Klong Nin road. Proper espresso, home-made ice cream and sorbets and a few “dishes of the day”. Everything made with great quality and a nose for exciting mixes. It is exiting to drop in to see what the excellent French chef has prepared for the day. Top it up with imported Illy coffee from Italy – and you will soon find yourself returning the next day. As the owner himself says a lot - “for sure!” :-)

Great place, good ambience. This French chap and his wife are onto a winner here. Try the muesli it's incredible and the coffee is pretty good too. If you go to Lanta you must try this out...

A small sign saying "Homemade ice cream" , placed on a bend in the middle of nowhere on a scooter trip, pointing into the jungle led to this little, wonderful place. A small fishermans hut at the end of the road in Old Lanta, where a French dude has put up shop, and in the most unlikely of places, makes the most delicious ice cream, the best smoothie on the island topped of with real expresso. Make it a destination for a day trip and see most of the island on the way.

Shanti Shanti is an amazing find in Koh Lanta on Klong Nin beach. The French owner and his wife have made this place really special and the kind of place you could sit in for hours. The fruit and musli bowl will sort you out until dinner and the fresh fruit smoothies are pure, thick and cold. Try the strawberry and black pepper one. They also have a small shop attached selling jewellery, t shirts and local goods. The music is also amazing and perfectly suits the atmosphere.

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this place when we first arrived in Lanta old town. The ice cream and the view from the back patio is to die for. I didn't want to leave! FaFa is awesome and he's got some really neat and unique items you won't find anywhere else on the island and beyond. FaFa travels all over Southeast Asia and acquired many beautiful well made vintage items. Great place for an icecream break and some cool unique souvenirs and knick-knacks.
