Very quaint and uniquely decorated place. Food is reasonably priced, arrived quickly and was delicious cafe style food. Had a sandwich one day and Full English the next. Full English was closest to a proper English cafe fry up I've had in SE Asia. Highly recommend if you just want a chill place to get nice food at a decent... More

Love this little place although I had to seek it twice as I walked right past the first time. The sign is sooooo small :). It's full of the owner's character (K. Napatsarot) - her self-designed postcards, old memorabilia, new stuff and great coffee. That's all I had as I had already had breakfast but the menu seemed fab! Varied... More

Lovely quaint cafe with a great variety of dishes on the menu- waffles, pancakes, continental breakfasts, smoothies etc. Staff are really lovely & food is really good value for money.

Small, quirky cafe with western style breakfasts and good coffee (actually the best coffee I've had on Koh Samui). They only have a small kitchen so if you are in a bigger group a little patience will go a long way but this is a fun friendly place to have a nice breakfast and enjoy some really good coffee.

This is such a small place, you need to hang around for a table, there are only four. The food is good but not a lot different to what you get elsewhere, but the place is super cute and worth the effort to find. The location is nice to walk around, lots of interesting shops and restaurants. Order the eggs... More

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!

Thank Sazzu
