We came here for breakfast, the menu had lots of western food so we sat and ordered relatively simple things.. I had beans on toast. The meal was nice, barely any beans but I'm not fussy, and a smoothie. The price was cheap so therefore I'd say this is an average coffee shop. It is also a chain.

Good little inexpensive place to go for breakfast, we shard the set full breakfast, glad we did there was quite a lot of food on the plate, got some Orange and Mango juice with it.

Breakfast was ok, nothing different to lots of others in that area, coffee was not great and very small. Place feels a bit run down. I had to go to coconut monkey after for my fix. Not worth a second visit.

We are going to this place for breakfast and the value for money is very good. Continental set includes coffee/tea, juice, a big fresh fruit platter and toast. They have brown bread and pastries as well!

The Thai interpretation of breakfast can be random at the best of times but this place has got it absolutely nailed on! Fresh home made bread, good coffee and a better selection than you'd find in most U.K. Cafes, really really good!!

Very nice menu with all kind of different sandwiches. The portions are really large and the taste is great. The staff is smiling all the time which creates a nice atmosphere. The items on the menu are not expensive.

Me and my wife have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed by the breakfast here. (We have only eaten breakfast here). The staff are friendly and the menu has plenty on it. It is reasonably priced and the food is always good.

We absolutely love Zest and had breakfast there almost every day of our week long trip on Koh Tao. The bathroom could be better, but the food and coffee are amazing. Also free wifi!

As you have probably found there aren't many purveyors of good coffee on the Thai islands. This is one of them. It came recommended by the lovely owner of Coconut Monkey (Another great place on Koh Tao) and she wasn't wrong. Good by any standards and great by Island ones. 100% Arabica.

Service is great, location is good. Coffee, smoothies, and breakfast is great- lots of options. Very fast service if you only have a couple minutes to eat in the morning. Honestly, great even for just a cup of coffee in the morning.
