It's nice place to get breakfast, lunch or dinner. The you'll find Ooy, thai girl that prepare delicious Sushi&Sashimi, to be tried! Lele and Lino are friendly and funny guys that Always provide you finger food & snacks to enjoy your drink. If you are in Lamai beach, you cannot miss it!!!

Having read several good reviews about the coffee, I was disappointed to find out it was made using a pod machine and milk frother. The taste was ok but I expected a Barista made coffee at an Italian cafe.

It is hard to find great coffee on Lamai Beach. I discovered this place and it has become a regular stop every morning. All the coffees are outstanding......the sushi and the sandwiches are also very good. This restaurant should have a much higher rating then it does. The owners are great and the sushi queen Ooy is the most incredibly... More

The Italian manager or owner mentioned there wasn't certain items available on the menu, little did he know that one of my friends was Italian and understood every word he said to his mates about the same item we requested being available for them to eat. Sushi was average too.

Came here for the coffee but saw the selection of sushi on offer at great prices and couldn't resist. Ordered one of the set menus and was not disappointed, all freshly prepared and at prices that are probably 50-80% less than the UK. A very welcome surprise in Lamai.

I heard about his place from another Italian (S. P. Q. R.) restaurant owner. It is hard to find a great cafe in Lamai.....this is the place for a latte. The atmosphere of the restaurant is great, very clean and the owner provides excellent service. Cafe Woo Hoo!!!!

Visited for lunch today. Service was very friendly and attentive. We had two latte's which had good flavour although lukewarm. We also had a penang chicken curry that was excellent. Full of flavour and with good spice it was delicious and only 80bht, great value.

Ok, so Lamai beach seems to be going through the lack of tourism factor at the moment. There were very few people about during the mid/late afternoon. Those who were and knew about coffee were heading for Jamin. It's at the very top end of the walking strip and could be missed as there is a wall along side the... More

I have been here for 3 weeks and tried them all. Best Coffee in Lamai Beach hands down 😛 in Jamin Cafe. Walk up the main street south towards the end and look for a yellow sign (and wall painting) to find this wonderful friendly Italian just before the street bends to the right.
