“SOME MUCH MORE THAN A CAFE”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

Whilst the food is what you might expect in a cafe, the other services are exceptional. You can book trips, get help with visas and generally seek advice on any subject from car hire to accomodation and the frieindly, helpful staff will be happy to assist.

The owner Akey is the one man you need to meet in Chumphon. He can help you with almost anything.

If you are in tyhe city drop in for a coffee or snack and see for yourself. It is better than any Thai tourist information office you will ever find.

“Street type cafe”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

Wasn't over impressed. Big menu (too big) everything we initially iedered they didn't have so settled for a salad (ok but nothing like a Caesar salad as described) and Parma ham with olive bread. Parma ham poor, bread fine when warm but not when cooled. Expensive. Wouldn't go again other to people watch (seems to be THE place to hang out I. Way to train or boat)

“Best place for a taste of home and travel hub in Chumphon”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Ive been availing myself of Akey's (the owner) service since 2009 when I first hit Chumphon. Industrious man constantly upgrading and expanding his business and the services they provide.

Having lived for 5 months in Chumphon this is the place for a little taste of home if you are burnt out on Thai food and craving something western/european. Staff speak excellent english to help you with your travel arrangements and the prices are reasonable (although I did barter with him over the cost of a rental car)

This is also a great social hub if your looking to make contact with a few friendly faces there are always farang around heading somewhere. They offer left baggage service if you want to lighten your load while you look around among the dozens and dozens of other services they provide. If you need something in Chumphon this is the place to stop in.

About the only negative I can say is the one time I used the budget guesthouse the bed was as hard as a concrete floor of course that was 5 years plus ago and Akey is always improving things and the price per night was ridiculous at the time about $9 for the night.
