Freshest food in Lipe. From perfect European style dishes to all the delicious Thai food you can dream of. Everything prepared just when ordered with high quality ingredients. Personal service, friendly atmosphere and wonderful view.

What can I say about the cafe lipe well I’ll start at the beginning I’ve been travelling to Thailand for for 20 years . And koh lipe is without doubt one of the best places I found yes it’s a lot busier than it used...to be. But the cafe lipe has stayed pretty much as it was all those years ago a truly relaxed place to stay or just to pop in for great coffee and food . And you you will find bee and Darius welcoming friendly and great for advice on many subjects I can’t tell you how nice it is too sit and have your breakfast in the cool shade while you look at the world go by .More

Café Lipe is a place where you can eat the best breakfast and lunch on the island with the best view over the fantastic crystal clear water 💜. Choose between homemade bread, fresh juices, nice omelette, different sandwich, yoghurt & müsli and really good organic...coffe. For lunch you can have really tasty thai food, homemade by the lovelly Bee. Café Lipe has a very calm and good atmosphere and is located on the Pattaya beach with a beautiful white and soft sand. You can sit under the palm trees for nice shadow and enjoy your breakfast or lunch. A blessing place…More

Very good food and the best vibe. The owners Dario and his wife are one of the best people we met in Lipe. Cafe Lipe is a beach front place, with lots of trees and shade, which leaves the place with a very pleasant temperature....I strong recommend this place for a meal, juice or just for a coffee!More

Our hotel recommended Cafe Lipe as a good choice for the local food. Our food selection was veganized and we really enjoy everything. Massaman curry, Pad Thai, spring rolls and hummus with the homemade bread (the best bread on the island). We love the food...that was cooked with love and friendly and relax service. Many guests smoke in the restaurant, so we were surrounded by smokers during our entire meal without a chance to escape. This was the only one negative moment, otherwise everything was good.More

The breakfast here is amazing. The place is hidden under a big three and it is a very cozy (one of the coziest places at the beach) and relaxed place at the buzy Pattaya beach.

At Café Lipe you find all you need - great food to eat and a book to read. And if you drop by for breakfast on a Monday, join the "Do It BY HEART Save Koh Lipe Thailand"-Team and help them to clear the beaches...of the neighbouring islands of rubbish. Ask the host for more information.More

Amazing breakfast served with fresh home cooked bread. Really lovely people who own the cafe who made us feel really welcomed. Great tasting coffee and fruit shakes which were so fresh and tasty. Highly recommend. Love the look of the place were you are in...the shade and look out on the white sandy beach and blue water. My scrambled eggs had fresh tomatoes and onion mixed in which added to the amazing flavours.More
