Delicious breakfast - fluffy pancakes buddy breakfast. More expensive than I'd usually go for but it was absolutely huge - 4 bits of bacon, 2 eggs, 2 sausages, tomatoes and 2 very fluffy pancakes with maple syrup. Lovely staff and comfortable place to chill for a while. Worth a visit!

Delicious place to enjoy your ice cream. A bit pitty of the noise due to lots of construction works in the area.

Good burgers, fresh juices and heavenly New Zealand's ice cream. Place is relaxed and the staff is nice. And for all the Aussies missing home: this place has Vegemite!

Excellent coffee, the best found in Phu Quoc so far! ☕️ Not a lot of choice for something to accompany your coffee if that's your thing (like me)! Although the snacks going out looked good..

We were on a private tour of the island and asked for a quick brunch/ coffee stop. Our driver took us to Buddys where we enjoyed coffees-Australian style flat whites (hot) as well as superb cold Vietnamese style coffees (great on hot humid day).
