Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fresh food and ingredients. Excellent coffee and western breakfast as well. Highly recommended if you’re visiting Koh Tao!

From what I could tell from my week in Ko Tao, Zest serves the best coffee on the island. Zest also opens much earlier than most nearby cafes, which meant I could enjoy a delicious egg, toast and coffee breakfast before I went scuba diving...each morning (my hotel breakfast didn't start until 8am). And best of all, Zest smells gorgeous - its in-house bakery seems to supply a number of local cafes and restaurants. Need I say more?More

Literally the best sandwiches in khao Tao. Spend the afternoon here, nice people. Had the welknown chicken sandwich with grilled chicken breast (added some feta for 50bht extra) it was to die for. The bread is kind of like the ones from subway, but wayyy...better.More

Had a lovely full English breakfast with good quality strong coffee. Even got our order correct when asked for fried eggs to be soft but flipped. They had soy milk alternative on offer. The menu is a extensive and diverse. Competent pleasant staff which seems...to be a family run affair. Added bonus they are animal lovers.More

We came here for breakfast, we had eggs on toast and eggs benedict, the food was about average and tasted okay, unfortunately the hollandaise sauce had split a bit but the eggs were cooked well! I had a Thai iced tea to drink and this...was delicious! The staff are also really lovely.More

Best latte on the island. Pretty much the best latte I’ve had, ever. Opens early. Good cafe style food. Always get to give some pets to a cat or dog.

Extremely friendly and competent staff.This is a good place for brunch, if parts of the family feel like they still live in another time-zone. One part can have the full breakfast, while another family member may have the fish and chips. Good fish and chips,...good breads (not the standard Thai white processed variety, but rye and full corn). Great salads, good juices. Opens at 6 AM, so divers with an early boat also have a breakfast option.More
