Very nice service. GREAT food. Not expensive at all. The Acai was delicious, the burger was made with love and even the vegan among us loved her veggie burger.

Still have the amazing taste of their pancakes in my mouth. Three fluffly, super fresh pancakes. Tried pancakes lovers and chocolate lovers. Both amazing for 110 bath. Fruit shakes, coffe and bagel not bad either. Staff is super nice and never hurry you. Great for...an all day breakfast. Ah, they have acai too, tha super power berries all the way from Brazil. Pay them a visit and support local business.More

We had a flying visit to Pura Vida as we were on route to the ferry crossing,. The food was excellent. Choices were good and everything was very fresh. (Croissants straight from the oven) Fruit bowls were packed full of fresh fruit and the pancakes...were very tasty. I wouldn't hesitate to visit the restaurant when we come back again to Koh Phangan.More

As Pura Vida Cafe had a high score on Tripadvisor we wanted to give it try for our lunch. What a disappointment! How can people say it is cosy when you are sitting next to a busy road. The owner was far from friendly and...the food ...... Maybe some people are impressed by the huge slices of bread but for me they look unattractive. Nothing positive about this place. Sorry.More

Has to wait nearly half hour for y e club sandwich. It is a huge chunk of loads of bread with a few leaves of lettuce, tasteless tomatoes, industrial tasteless cheese, the cheapest and most industrial cooked ham you can find on earth! They call...themselves cooking fresh and organic produce? This is the biggest joke on Koh phangan! Never again!More

Great place for breakfast. They were having a hard time with service as the restaurant was full. They seemed a bit rude with customers trying to seats. Our food was good but the coffee tasty a bit like water. Location is in the street. A...bit noisy at times but all in all a fine place.More

One of the best breakfast we ever had, super nice service and everything went very fast. After we discovered the restaurant we went there the next day for breakfast and it was a real pleasure again. For thai conditions somewhat more expensive, but completely justified....I wish to have such a great restaurant at our home town.More
