After all of the rave reviews on Trip Advisor, we gave About Cafe a try and were actually a bit disappointed. The pluses were that the coffee was very good and my husband loved his waffle but the egg dishes were dry and uninspired. The decor is funky to be sure but I found the clutter a bit much and...

I went here in search of scones. I had been here 2 years ago and I loved them. I was not disappointed. The place is one of those super cute gems you couldn't imagine existed. Alongside an amazing breakfast, I got a little gift for xmas. I am happy I decided to take the trip there from Bophut. Loved it!

We pulled up to what seemed like the garage of a small house! The entry way full of nicknacks and mismatched tables, chairs and memorabilia. It was a unique experience and a nice break from the typical Thai delicacies we've been indulging in. I had a simple and delicious English Breakfast with coffee and my girlfriend shared some of her... More

The place I have never missed when travelling to Koh Samui. I started my new day with iced latte and banana pancake. Forever tasty, good smell of pancake, wonderful coffee, reasonable price, and good atmosphere. I'd say the owner is pretty cool, she is always treated so well. One more thing, don’t forget to say Hi ! with “Moo Noom”... More

The vintage decor of this cafe drew us in for breakfast one morning and we weren't disappointed. The menu definitely caters to western tastes (pancakes, waffles, omelettes, etc) but everything was tasty. Fantastic coffee. The owner and staff were very nice and welcoming and there's no shortage of interesting things to look at while you wait for your breakfast (some... More

Finally had the chance to check out this cafe and can I say it is the cutest. It's very cozy, quirky, and vintage. Had a macadamia nut latte and waffle with honey which was delicious. It is a family run business and you can tell. They sell totes with their cafe on them as well as post cards and mugs.... More
