I have no idea why this place is so well reviewed. We came here for breakfast & ordered a cappuccino and 2x French toasts. Even though photo advertising and displayed on the menu, they only make Americano coffee, which was only just drinkable. We waited half an hour for our breakfast to come out, and only one arrived. Poor service,... More

Always make it a point to visit Smiling Dog Cafe when my friends come to Ao Nang for a visit. It's a small cozy place for us to have delicious crepes and omelette while doing some catching up on a lazy late morning. Nice and friendly staff too. Keep up the good work!

I came here twice, and both times got their french toast with fruit salad. It was incredible, and only 100 baht. I also got a mint latte, which was also very, very good.

Just a simple place to have yummy crepes and coffee. Don't worry about how it looks from the outside. Just step in. We came back twice for their crepes and Tex Mex and Very Berry stood out for us. I had my first Espresso Con Panna here and it was both lovely to look at and savor. Great service, I... More

Okay. Iced latte and iced flat white. SO FRICKIN' GOOD. Fruit salad and a ham and cheese omelet for food. The fruit salad was very good. The omelet was a little heavy on the cheese, as in very, but tasty!

We walked for awhile just to check this place out. Even to the point of skipping some other cafes along the way. But wjen we arrived, to our surprise we were informed that the only coffee they have is americano. So we didnt stay.

Don't judge a book by it's cover! This suits Smiling Dog Cafe perfectly From the outside, this is not the usual cafe that will grab your attention. Came here cause of review from TripAdvisor. And of course the cafe did not let me down. Surprisingly, tho place is small it is real cozy. I sat there for hours, make full... More

I kind of stumbled upon this place. I was walking up the street and was just too hot to go any further. I think I was drawn by the word "cafe" so I went inside. This place isn't much more than a counter for tours and is pretty indistinguishable from other locals on the street. Nonetheless, I was impressed with... More

Rented a bicycle (not motorbike) from them for a week, and they made the process very easy. I also stopped in and had their coffee/crepes which were delish, and the service was good!
