Bubba´s Is a very special place for me, it really became a home away from home. Bubba´s is not just cafe it´s a place where you meet and connect with people from all over the world, you really feel so welcome there, you feel like you a part of the “family”

The coffee is really great here, the owner is a total coffee geek and is roasting his own coffee out in the back, of course that´s why the coffee is over the top awesome.

Tired of of Thai food, and looking for an amazing Avo toast or other proper western dishes, you must visit, but nothing beats the new snack menu - this is simply a must try.

The staff is very sweet to, always smiling they are all very special to.

But the star of the show is Mitra, she is the soul mama of this place, she makes sure you feel at home, she looks after you, gives you awesome advice on not just the food :) She always lighten up you day, with her amazing energy. All together this a warm place, you don´t want to miss out on.

Hello Nicole - let me first just say that everyone here at Bubba's thinks you're very special too and we've really enjoyed getting to know you and having you as part of our family during your time here on the island! For SO many reasons - we are glad you found us!!!! Thank you so much for taking to share your thoughts and for all the lovely things you said. It is our hope that all our customers feel the way about us that you do, that's why we are always looking for ways to take the Bubba's experience to the next level!
That CERTAINLY includes our owner, Robin beginning to roast coffee here in the cafe. His passion for coffee is unmatched and hopefully that shows in each cup of coffee we serve! We are excited for the day we will be able to offer in-house roasted coffee on a consistent basis - but be sure that it will be no sooner than when we can offer the most amazing coffee possible and we have no doubt that Robin will make that happen.
We are also excited to introduce our afternoon snack menu. It includes smaller plate items like Baked Brie Bruschetta, Trio of Dips and Salmon Pinwheels while also offering specialty cocktails like our original Lotus Martini and we are now also serving wine and offering a variety of imported craft beers. You are absolutely right that Bubba's is a great place to connect with friends and even make new ones, no matter the time of day. But now you can do it over cocktails and tapas as well as coffee and breakfast or lunch!

You truly have become such a welcome and special fixture here and we are so grateful to have you as part of the Bubba's family! Thanks again for your wonderful review. And thank you for being a bright spot to our day these past few months! ❤️

This place is amazing and definitely worth the visit if you are ever on Koh Phangan or even if you are a resident of the island.
Prices are fair, coffee is amazing and the service is always fast and precise, and you always get a smile and a big hello when you walk in, this makes it almost like an experience. Friendly helpful atmosphere, I like that.
I have been there many times by now, and consistency is always on point. High quality ingredients and tasty menu is what set's this place apart from all the other places.

This is also a place where you don't feel in the way if you bring your laptop and make a day out of it, it is almost encouraged.
In the back there is a couple of 'one seater' spots and there is more tables outside in the back. There is always a couple of laptops open when you walk in, the digital nomad culture is alive and well at Bubba's.
The Wi-Fi is great and for me it has become a mixture of my restaurant, my office space, a place to catch up with people and almost with a tear in my eye, my home.
Thank you to all you guys at Bubba's that always makes it a good experience, you know who you are!

Hi Jens - thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are glad you feel like Bubba's is your home and we certainly consider you part of the Bubba's family! We try to make everyone who comes through our doors feel like they at home and love getting to know our regulars and those who are only with us for an all too brief time!
It is our goal to offer delicious, fresh menu items and beverages as consistent as possible so our customers know that every time they come back, their next coffee will be just as amazing as the last or that their Eggs Benedict and Avo Toast is as tasty and beautifully presented as the times before.
And yes - Digital Nomads are certainly welcome to come and spend the day working at Bubba's. We have AC, wifi and a number of tables close to outlets...and of course - COFFEE!!! We strive to make Bubba's a wonderful place to grow your business and/or friendships while on the island.
Thank you for being such a fantastic part of the Bubba's atmosphere and for taking the time to leave such an amazing review. We are so grateful to have had you be a part of the Bubba's family these past few months and know that wherever your travels may take you, you always will be!

Each meal I had was delicious and the service is fantastic. It was difficult to go elsewhere because nowhere else could measure up to this place. Great coffee and shakes too.

Durango is the local ex-pat waiter who absolutely rocks. She offered amazing service and truly cared about our groups needs (following the full moon party). We actually visited this restaurant back to back days during our stay because it was so fantastic.
A little pricey compared with the area (100-200 Baht) but totally worth it. Delicious breakfast foods and a nice air conditioned cafe.

Hey Scouter5280 - sorry it has taken so long to respond! Thank you SO much for the shout-out from the 303! I'm so glad you all had a good time - it was a lot of fun having you in the cafe! I hope you made a full recovery from Full Moon - we do our best to take care of everyone...but know how especially much it means after a big party to try and help everyone feel human again. I've found that often times good coffee, a fresh coconut and lots of bacon helps do the trick! Wherever you are in the world now, we here at Bubba's wish you all the best and hope to see you back here someday! Thanks again for being such wonderful guests! Take care!
