I decided to go for breakfast based on the photos from the menu and I got disappointed. The portions are very small! I ordered veggie omelet that supposed to be 3 eggs omelet but it looked like 2 small eggs omelet. The taste is good...but it is just omelet that doesn’t come with any potato’s or bread. If you want to slice of bread you have to order separately! Cappuccino is not that great. It is more like coffee I’m with milk with a little bit of milk foam in the top. Zero creativity! After breakfast I was still hungry! 😟 So my overall experience at this place was quite poor. 😟 If you are used to American style breakfast I do not recommend this place.More

Hi, All our “foods “ are made in house fresh daily. Smoothies we use fresh fruits which we freeze our self to achieve best possible clean flavors when blending. Home made yogurt gives beautiful texture and no sugar, water, juice or ice added 👍

Hi there, Great to hear your comments regarding our Flair coffee maker. It’s amazing how the coffee character and flavour changes so much with this method. Just like you said! My favorite way to drink coffee. Much appreciated of your comments, thank you

We had breakfast a number of times during our stay - much, much better than hotel offerings. Really great coffee, with breakfast offerings fresh and tasty. Open early in the morning - a must visit!

I have to agree with the other reviews. This place was that good that we returned to it on our 6 day Ao Nang visit. The mango & passionfruit smoothie is unbeatable & my teenager loved the Macha smoothie. Their 'Build a Bowl' system is...great & especially if you are after a healthy food boost. The salmon was super fresh and tasty as well. I would have loved a 3rd visit here!! Their options are so good and all meals coming out the kitchen looked great.More
