Hi It is always nice to hear people enjoy our quirky little cafe. We have put a lot of effort into making the Biz a fun easy going stop off with great food and coffee. Our aim is to have a unique island vibe with beats to match. Thanks again for the fantastic review. More

A pretty good americano here, the peanut butter on toast was a tad pricey but delicious. The cafe has some cute coffee bag decor and lots of big plants. Good wifi and enthusiastic staff. Not the fastest, but a great spot to chill out and drink coffee, check it out.

We came here for a breakfast. I ordered Americano, banana smoothie and bacon & eggs. I enjoyed them all. The prices are a little bit expensive for a budget traveller but I think it was all worth it. Eggs and bacon were the best I've had in Thailand so far in two and a half months. What I liked the... More

I had a great guava salad from the staff recommendation, she was really nice with positive attitude but the other European waitress was kinda intimidating & was not too friendly. The wifi works intermittently but a quick reboot usually solves the problem. When I went there, the seating area in the middle was empty but was for 4 people. So... More

This place would have 5 stars if it were not for the European (think Dutch) waitress who doesn't really give the impression that she wants to be working there. We went there on two occasions. The first time, my wife ordered a coffee for takeaway. It was scolding hot. So the second time we went my wife asked the same... More

Hello We are sorry to hear your experience at The Biz was not up to standard or full of smiles. A friend of the Monkey owner has been helping out from time to time - we apologize if she was not full of beans and laughter when you popped in. It is great to hear you enjoyed our little boutique...

This quaint and colorful little cafe was the only highpoint of what turned out to be a miserable and frustrating trip to southern Thailand. The staff were upbeat and positive, and we had some great iced coffees with condensed milk, as well as some excellent homemade brownies.

This place was very cute and cozy for lunch. The food was simple - wraps and salads. The best was the desserts and smoothies. Ordered a passion fruit smoothie and had some ice cream and the sundae. All we're super delicious!

We read all the great reviews of this place and thought it'd be perfect for lunch. To start, when we walked in the entire middle seating area of the restaurant (note this is a very small space to begin with) was taken up by about 5 or 6 people who turned out to be staff (or owners or family). We... More

Dear reviewer To be honest our monkeys have always been a little strange (Some would even say bonkers). Each year our monkey family fly in to visit from England and Northern Thailand and we share a brunch together. We apologize if this was not to your liking. We are disappointed to hear our wraps did not pack enough protein and... More

The place was so cozy and had funny little details everywhere. We had chicken wraps, satay and ceasar, and we both really enjoyed them. We also ordered smoothies and ice creams. Mango smoothie and salted caramel icecream were my favourite! The staff was also very friendly and gave us recommendations about the food. Would really recommend the place for all!... More
