Located near Jomtien beach (but not on the beach itself), this is a quaint and artistic cafe to be explored. Heaps of old books and magazines don the walls and free space. We tried some cold fruit drinks and found them good. Nice place to chill out.

The restaurant is a bit worn out and in need of a deep cleaning and some paint. The mosquitoes inside the restaurants are a bit of an hassle, but they have mosquitospray on every table. Service is average, I get why some people do not find it friendly. Food (Thai) was not special in any way, prices for thaifood and... More

The sketchbook café is a good little place to have a meal I suggest you sit indoors or if you sit outdoors put some mozzie cream on yourself because it is surrounded by a fantastic garden. The food here is great

My partner and I loved it here. The coffee milkshake was huge and that the mango with sticky rice was incredibly tasty.

Have walked past sketchbook art cafe many times but never went inside. This time we stopped to have coffee. It's a interesting place and the outside garden and entrance have had a long overdue clean up. Well inside the menu seems good and what friends have said the food is good. The staff is very nice and helpful.

An eclectic collection of arty stuff all around the café and the outside has nooks and crannies that are full of character around the mosquito filled garden. Onside they have bug spray on the tables. I had a beer, a large cappuccino and a mango smoothie - all very nice. Contrary to what others wrote I found the staff pleasant.

We thought we'd try somewhere different and a friend recommended this place for breakfast, although it was generally OK I've had far better English breakfast but my partner thought the Thai food was excellent. Overall I thought it was a bit over priced compared to others locally and the staff although not rude were not over friendly

I visited Sketchbook Art Cafe this month because a friend recommended it. It is, as my friend said 'a bit of a different place', which is very nice. Often you go to coffee shop after coffee shop and they all serve the same and it can get boring. This cafe is different in the way it's designed. You can come... More

In case you would like to have a BREAKFAST I recommend to you to come about 5 AM, because I am sitting here at the moment waiting for my pancakes and it's already 12:20. Maybe I should change to order, but I am afraid it would be my dinner. And no one even apologised!
