Mostly local dishes with a sprinkling of western. Tried breakfast, lunch and dinner here, all were good. Fast service with a smile. Ewan is a friendly, helpful man. And its cheap.

Very nice owner but staff is so unfriendly, they should learn how to smile. I stayed in their chalets for almost a week and I never saw a single smile from female staff. I felt like I am not welcomed to their cafe. This place is overpriced and overrated. Food is as everywhere on the island. It takes long time... More

We were hard pressed to find good food on the island until we visited Ewan Cafe. The food very yummy, fresh and abundant. The drinks amazing - juices packed full of fruit the shakes! Try the Oreo shake oh yeah! The big chef is a really cool guy, friendly staff.

Located along the trail of Long Beach and Coral Bay, just before the Ombak resort if you are coming from Long Beach. The food was delicious! The wifi was good enough :)

Though the menu is limited, the portion is good for the money. Although it wouldn't hurt if workers go through a little bit of customer service training.

We had lunch and dinner at Ewan's Cafe. I loved to eat their Nasi Pattaya. Very delicious and they put many chicken, shrimp and squid inside. The price is quite cheap. Nasi Pattaya will cost you RM10 only.

Once we discovered Ewan's cafe, it was the only place we'd go to have out meals. Good, pretty and cheap is the best option at the Perhentians! The staff are really great and smiling all the time. Food is delicious and the service is great.
