Second time I've visited this great little Coffee shop. At the end of the narrow road that leads you to the Big Buddha temple it's the second or third shop on your left. Nice quaint little building that you can sit in or outside and it has a loo with a view ( there's an open window that over looks... More

I love this place. Since Michelle and Jack moved back it now has a lovely welcoming and homely feel. The views from the 'balcony' are stunning especially at sunset. The coffee is always good. I am a bit addicted to the coffee shake! Good place to pop in for a chat and see what Samui has to offer when visiting... More

Located near the entrance to the Big Buddha location is this superb small Coffee Shop hosted by Michelle and Jack, two friendly lovely owners of one of the best Coffee houses I have ever visited. Great place if you just want to go and chill out after a visit before or after seeing the Big Buddha temple and adjacent shops.... More

As an avid coffee drinker of between 15-20 cups a day to find this coffee shop was excellent and the owners of Michelle and Jack could not of been any more welcoming. The coffee is honestly the best i tasted on the Island and trust me we tasted a few during our 10 day vacation. Also the prices are somewhat... More

The coffee is gorgeous, stayed for another cup as the first was so good. Lovely little balcony overlooking the bay where you can relax by the water. Another outside seating area is at the front of the... More

Stopped by here for a refreshment to get about from the midday heat after visiting the Big Buddha. The cafe is located in the tourist shop precinct surrounding the Big Buddha. Shared a pineapple shake which was really fresh, frothy and above all cool! Enjoyed the breeze on the cute seaside verandah. The toilet with a view is really quaint.
