Good for breakfast

Non molte opzioni vegane. Scrambled tofu intrigante. Qualità nella media. Staff simpatico e veloce. Piacevole anche se sulla strada.

Pros: Staff simpatico, Breakfast

Cons: Poche opzioni vegane

Few vegan options

Not many substantial breakfast options, just the tofu scramble. This wasn't great. It seemed like raw, unmarinated tofu. Much better vegan breakfast options elsewhere.

Not as good as I remember

Double the floor space with the same decent vegan options but somehow not as good as I remember. The avocado bagel was okay but not toasted. The tofu scramble had been my favourite previously but was quite plain this time. The ratatouille and homemade bread was excellent as always. Good coffee too.

Vegan breakfast

Cosy place, several vegan options, friendly staff. Breakfast was okay, but not interesting. It's just tofu scramble, fried vegetables and two pieces of bread with jam. And coffee.

Pretty good

Really great smoothie bowl and coffee! They have good vegan options as well. I did get a little bit sick afterwards, but I’m not really sure if it was from this place. Very crowded

Pros: Vegan options, Good coffee

Cons: Flies, Crowded

Best Meal I've Had in Months

Five stars. Fresh, flavorful, healthy and delicious. Got the clear veggie soup made vegan, fresh spring rolls and a chocolate cookie. Very filling and well balaced. Will be back.

Amazing place

Had the avocado toast with a poached egg and it was absolutely delicious. Highly recommended.
They have lots of veg options, even a tofu scramble.

Came back a day later to have the veggie sandwich, was 10/10 again!

Pros: Lots of veg options

Cons: A bit pricey but okay

Try the Vegan Breakfast!

I tried the vegan breakfast as it is one of the only dishes that are actually marked on the menu as vegan. Although there are others that can be made vegan on request I believe as this place is not veggie I wanted to play it safe. The vegan breakfast did not disappoint and was actually one of the best value meals I have had here. 180 baht for a nice soy milk latte and two large pieces of bread with a tasty vegan tofu scramble and little salad. Really satisfying and was shocked when the bill was only 180 as this island is not cheap. It's just a shame that it isn't fully vegan or veggie and it isn't really clear what can be made vegan without asking lots of questions.

Pros: Good value, Tasty food, Chilled place

Cons: Only 2 vegan dishes actually marked vegan, Not vegan or veggie, Wi-Fi didn't work great for me

Really good breakfast

Got the scrambled tofu and it was really good. The bread was a little bit dry though. The coconut yoghurt is also really good :)

Amazing food for low price

Wow! We didn’t expect that at all but got surprised. The vegetarian scrambled eggs and vegan scrambled tofu und toast with marmalade and butter was extremely tasty and plenty!! We paid around 200 bhat for each dish including coffee!! The other day we had avocado toast and some “overnight porridge” which is basically cold porridge out of the fridge with a good base of oatmeal and topped with dried fruits and nuts. All in all a perfect place for us, since we stay in longbay resort which is 1 min away ;-)

Pros: price and taste ratio is great, nice atmosphere

Cons: you have to leave the beach ;-)
