I stayed next door at the Lamoon Lamai, a great hotel, but breakfast was not included with my room. Man oh man was I happy to discover Jamin cafe next door! I'm from Montreal where we're pretty serious about our coffee and this was the only place in Koh Samui/Lamai and pretty much all of Thailand that reminded me of home. The owner, Luca, an extremely nice guy ... is from Italy as is the fantastic coffee he serves. For some reason almost everywhere in Thailand they serve instant coffee ... even at the 5 star hotels I sometimes stayed at !?!?
Not at Jamin! I had 2 double espresso's every day I stayed in Lamai and may I also add that his girlfriend and cook serves up incredible Thai dishes as well as Western breakfasts, panninis and much more. I couldn't believe how reasonable the prices were for the high quality of the food and beverages. If you consider yourself a coffee lover you MUST check this place out! Go for a nice espresso or cappuccino and try the crispy pork or any of your favorite noodle dishes and you will be 100% satisfied!

It's a cafe so let me start out by saying the coffee is fantastic. Most places on the island will serve you instant coffee but not here. I cannot begin to explain how friendly and happy the owner of this cafe is. Anytime you walk in there and you can't help but be in a better mood. The cafe serves delicious thai and italian cuisine. The italian paninis with salami or chicken are really tasty and the breakfast plate is great also. Best bacon I had on the island for sure.
