About
When you step into our place, you'll want to whip your phone out to snap a picture. Which is great because our wifi will let you Instagram it immediately. Then you'll sit down, order a hearty breakfast to go along with a cup of coffee which we take much pride in making. If you like, you can ask us about our beans or just have a friendly chat. We love either one. See you here!

Have been here multiple times over the past 6 months and the staff are always friendly and inviting. The coffee is lovely but only criticism would be the cappuccino could do with being hotter. Lovely ambience with music a nice addition. Seeing a recent review on TA saying its not a vegan place, no its not and it doesn't claim to be. If you are vegan please don't moan about somewhere not being vegan, go to a vegan restaurant please!!! Sick of them moaning and leaving bad reviews at places for their dietry choices. Stop whinging! The burger is gorgeous and I recommend the big breakfast, smoked salmon and chicken satay. Great they have more choices now I cabt wait to try them.

Visited the Smiling Buffalo 4 times while in lockdown on Langkawi. 3 times for breakfast, always had the scrambled eggs which were delicious. Enjoyed a celebration end of June with friends, for my birthday. Had the pasta which was excellent. English breakfast tea with breakfast meals, asked for honey no problem always generous serve. Coffee mug size was strong just the way i like it. The garden and decor is stunning. Really miss this place. Friendly staff Our temperature was taken each visit and we always had to sign in.

Good service, good food, good prices. We ended up having most of our meals here! You should be staying at PanjiPanji Wooden Homes that is attached to this cafe. Breakfast ranges from RM10 to RM12. Fresh juices from RM5 to RM6. Rice dishes RM10 to 12. Desserts RM10 to RM12. Coffees from RM6 to RM12. Super cute cafe and grounds. Lots of tables in hidden corners so it doesn't feel over crowded. Great music playing. No boom boom stuff. Straight up guitar typed 80's. Great place for grammers to get the perfect shot. Would be even better if they had a liquor licence and open for dinner so we could eat and drink here even more! Loved everything about this cafe.

We just wanted to have a chill freakfast before going to the beach. We sat down and nothing happened for around 15 minutes. Then I asked kindly for the menu. After overall 25 minutes of getting ignored I asked if this is a self service caffe and if not that I would like to order something to eat! Then finally something happened and after another 20 minutes we got our breakfast. Fresh orange juice was 50% water and ice. Iced latte was 40% ice crushes. Food was 3.5/5 which was absolutely okay. Besides that you’re getting live music, way too loud and the girl singer screaming early in the morning like she’s Janice Joplin herself. Service overall was the baddest we had on our whole trip in Malaysia. Everybody was just ignoring us and if anyone was talking to us they were not friendly. 2 of them were kind of arrogant. 2 tourists in front of us were leaving the site after not getting any service at their table. For paying the bill you have to walk to the Cash register. Prices are higher due to Malaysian standards. I just cannot recommend this caffe. Regards

This place is rated well but was just so poor. The seating is scruffy and the atmosphere was awkward. The coffee was not very strong and the food was very bad. We had smoked salmon and chicken burger. Cheap nasty sauce covering the burger and making the chicken soggy and the smoked salmon looked grey and nasty, salad was a mere garnish and eggs were tasteless, toast was dry. We were very disappointed. Staff were not attentive and one of them was ill sneezing onto everything.

Excellent breakfast place. And it opens early at 8 am! I haven't come across many breakfast place which opens before 9 am. Also, this is the best breakfast place in Langkawi. And very popular as it gets full around 9 am in the morning and there are at least 20 or more tables here. We ordered Egg Benedict, Mango Waffle, Smoked Salmon and Avocado toast. We also ordered drinks for all 4 of us. This costed us a very reasonable RM 149.60. All the items were good. But, special mention goes to Mango Waffle which is not only very good, but I noticed many people having it! So, must be very popular. Also, must mention the lemonade which was very nice. This place seems to be a coffee specialty place but we are not coffee drinkers. So, I cannot comment on this. The restaurant itself is a part of a resort called Panji Panji. So, you can actually stay at the resort if you want to enjoy the lovely breakfast everyday-lol. The resort and the restaurant has a very interesting compound which is full of trees and more interestingly has some vintage VW vans and as antique Aston Martin car! We clicked many photographs with those. Also, it is located in a very remote part of Langkawi where there is no hustle bustle. So, it gives a very nice feeling when you go for breakfast there. The service is fast and good. Also, there is enough parking place outside the restaurant. Definitely one of our best breakfast experience. A definite recommend to everyone visiting Langkawi.

Been here many times with family but this time came with friends in a bigger group. Thanks to Jeff who was accommodating he advised to come back in 45 mins and he would have a table ready for us with our food orders ready as well. He delivered what he promised. Love the food and the ambience. One of the best places for a great Flat White in Langkawi.

food and drinks are ok. place is nice. service falls short - table was cleared as requested but table cloth was left with crumbs ... had to request for it to be changed. There is a no smoking sign but there are cigarette butts on the ground. Table next to kitchen.

Great spot - lovely outdoor and shaded seating. Good range on the menu from local to western. Unbelievably cheap - two meals and a drink costing less than RM50. Would definitely re-visit and recommend.

What a gem! The location of the cafe is a bit out of the way, so we took a grab over. Love the ambience and quiet vibes. You can defintely take some insta worthy shots! Food was good as well. We ordered the beef rendang pasta (interesting and yummy) and the beef burger (juicy beef patty). Afterwards as we were leaving, we kinda got lost trying to walk out but the views made up for it 😂

I've nothing much to say since what others mentioned are 100% true. It's mosquitoes free and very peaceful and quiet. Food is ok, but the environment is fabulous! The place is suitable for breakfast, brunch and tea and it's Halal. However, I think the cafe needs to improve the cleanliness of plates and cups, got a bit stains...

Probably the best cafe in Langkawi!! Set in a beautiful garden, this Cafe serves delicious food, desserts & excellent coffee. Service may tend to be a little slow, but it's worth the wait. Service is friendly & helpful. Highly recommend this place for a lovely coffee, sandwich or dessert.

Food is good but nothing fantastic. Restaurant itself is very nice, little garden in a traditional house. Surprisingly the best dish was the burger Black pepper beef was meh as well as quesadillas. Kampung fried rice was good. Avoid deserts. Good drinks. 200 RM for 5.

I ate here for breakfast twice during my trip to Langkawi. It is a cute cafe with beautiful, natural surroundings and easy parking. The cafe has a relaxed vibe with nice style and decorations throughout. I had a (beef) bacon and onion omlette on toast with a mocha. Both were good. They accept credit cards, too, which I always appreciate. They have fans and candles and most tables to help keep the flies away, which is necessary in Malaysia! Overall a nice experience. I would come here again.

Lovely ambience with live music and good food at reasonable prices. Could improve on serving time which averaged around 45 minutes during all our visits. Special recognition to Saidi who was always welcoming and accomodating.
