About Cafe sits at the end of Moo 1 lane. Easy to miss it as this quaint looking cafe blends it with the row of shops. Serves food mostly apt for breakfast.

The decor was cute but the food was very basic, as was the coffee which is contrary to many of the reviews I saw before our visit. it's doing its best to be a western cafe in Thailand but it's just not quite getting there.

Great waffles and pancakes. Nothing like your typical batters from 5-6 star hotels (which can taste good), rather this is a down to earth goodness.

This venue is quite local for us and after reading reviews I knew we had to visit. The food and drink selections are excellent, there's so many items to choose from and the coffee is freshly ground too. Staff are always friendly and speaking English has never been an issue. Inside the cafe there's lots of niknaks you'll look around... More

Ate here about 10 times over 2 stays in maenam. Full of praise for the place. Really good sandwiches and waffles. Without a doubt the best fruit shake I've had in Thailand. Try the lemon mint shake - it's amazing! Staff friendly aswell. Really nice little cafe!
