We have visited a couple of times. The ability to sit overlooking the bay is lovely ( but limited to two people only )Barista makes good strong coffee and has a good memory for the return visit. Coffee price in Thailand is high but pick the right place and it's worth it.

We stopped here for a quick coffee after visiting the Buddha nearby. They served all sorts. We both had an iced coffee, which was pretty good.

Best Service, best coffee and incredible view from the balcony! Enjoy your break here with a cat next to your feets, a dog sleeping in the corner and some fish swimming under the balcony! Cosy little coffee shop you would not expect in this kind of place. Very cheap espacially if you are considering that it is next to one... More

Lovely little place with delicious coffee (also try the home made banana cake!). Try to snag the only table on the tiny balcony, overlooking the sea. We've spent a few rainy hours there and loved every minute of it! The couches inside are also very cosy, and the Scottish owner very friendly.

Thank Ikouzolele
