The Factory Cafe is the prettiest little cafe on Koh Tao island. It is a vegan eatery, filled with many plants and wooden decor. Regardless if you are not vegan, you will most definitely find something on the menu that satisfies your taste buds. It's the perfect place for Instagram selfie and food pictures to be taken!

I’ve been here twice for their desserts, juice and kombucha but I can’t wait to try their wraps. Everything here is made with love, pure plant ingredients and you feel more nourished just by being here. A home away from home.

Very cute boho coffee shop. Only lost a star because their smoothie bowl was warm, over blended, and foamy (from overblending. Menu attached. Other than that good healthy selection of coffee drinks, smoothies, and lunch items. Their premise is to bring fresh, health related ingredients into their foods and stay relatively vegetarian and vegan. My wife had oatmeal with fresh fruit, nuts, and other ingredients, a coffee, and turmeric latte. They were good and well thought out recipes.

This café was one of my favourite places here at Koh Tao. I’m here with my school class, and me and my friends have been loving the place. It’s a vegan/vegetarian café, that serves great coffee and delicious food. If you come here you must try the Choc Chip Pancakes. They are SO good. Would definetly recommend!

Lovely little cafe, mainly frequented by expats or tourists. Nice boho decor with lots of little green plants and repurposed furniture. Can be quite full at peak time though so try to come early if you like a not too crowded breakfast place. Best Eggs Benedict on the island in my opinion! Coffee is good too.

During my stay in Koh Tao I went every moring to the café factory. The food is super healthy and delicious! They have a big selection of food, also for people with gluten and lactose intolerance. I really enjoyed the Açai bowl, the avo toast and the choc chips pancakes.

On the first visit I ordered a frappe and the quinoa bowl. The frappe was mostly melted and the tempeh that was supposed to be in the quinoa bowl was undetectable, the whole thing was quite bland bar the faint smudge of hummus on the side. Given the reviews I wondered if they just had an off morning so I went again, had another crack at the frappe and also tried the eggs benedict. The frappe was nice this time as was the eggs benny, though the eggs were a little under for my liking (some runny white). All in all, not a bad place for a Western style brekky but thai food generally offers much better value.

This cafe is very popular and became bit of a regular. Serve good size coffee and the menu is vegan/vegetarian based and they aim to source local products when possible and work toward sustainability. I didn't eat there but the meals I saw being served looked very delicious. Good Wifi too, bit of an expat haunt.

Stopped in for breakfast this morning around 8:30am. It's a small shop, but there's a decent amount of seating. Had the "factory brunch" for 200 bhat, which included eggs, fruit, toast, choice of coffee and a few other things. It was very good. I didn't get a smoothie, but saw them being made. They looked EXTREMELY fresh and well prepared.

We were gutted because online the Factory cafe looked really good. My breakfast was terrible - eggs so overdone, frozen potato cake that was solid as a rock and some sopping wet garlic spinach on the side on some raw bread. My partner had the pancakes, I reckon my flip-flops would taste better. We got a partial refund. Just don’t come here.

As soon as you step through the door of The Factory Cafe you know you’ve arrived somewhere the staff and owners care about your experience. Friendly helpful smiles, great cozy decor, so many healthy delicious food options, no plastic straws and free drinking water available. Highly recommended!

Factory Cafe is great; they have a huge range healthy fresh food - vibrant in colour and flavour - that makes you feel good!’ As someone who’s gluten free I was super stoked to see the vast range of options. Both the GF pancakes and seeded bread rock. Love all the salads, overnight oats and pancakes. Cold brew gets ya humming too.

It’s a nice cafe with a good vibe, very busy. Seems like your typical Aussie cafe and I think it’s run by Aussies? It’s definitely run by westerners. I opted for the granola bowl but was disappointed as it had barely any granola in so the portion seemed a bit rubbish Staff weren’t particularly friendly or welcoming

The Eggs benediction can only be summed up on one word: TERRIBLE. They obviously don't know how to make it because the sauce was way off. The next day I went to the French Market on the other side of the island. It was spot on. If you are interested in EB, stay far away from the Factory--although their dessert was interesting. What is desceptive is that the decour is simple and trendy, and the clientele young. It seems the restaurant is always full. So they must be doing something right.
