Easy Café: Best for Breakfast

Easy Café has been around for a while, but it still shines compared to many of the new places that have sprung up around Krabi in recent years. It’s actually one of our favorite restaurants in Ao Nang, so don’t write it off as just another cafe! The coffee is spot-on and their breakfasts get rave reviews – real bacon! Freshly-baked homemade bread! The portions are big and the prices are very reasonable. If you visit later in the day then they have a full Thai and Western menu to choose from too. It’s conveniently located close to the ferry terminal so you can pop in while waiting for your boat. Or you can head straight there on arrival in Krabi by boat!

Hub Cafe: Close to Nature

A visit to Hub Café is about more than just the food. The location is second-to-none; think jungle-clad karst mountains serving as the backdrop to the unusual wooden architecture of the café building. A trip here is about more than just the views however, and the menu doesn’t disappoint. Coffees, teas and juices are all done well and the cake selection is extensive. If you’re after a bigger meal then the burgers are highly recommended. Sit back, sip your drink and soak up the surroundings.

Lion and Shark: The Healthy Choice

All those bottles of LEO beer can really add up and sometimes you just crave something healthy. If this sounds like you then the stylish Lion and Shark café is a great place to head for smoothies, granolas and fruit bowls, alongside a full drinks menu. Order a fruit shake to start the day right or enjoy some of their thick-sliced wholemeal toast dripping with honey. If this is all a bit too healthy then don’t worry, you could add Nutella with bananas too! The rooftop terrace is a beautiful place to sip a drink and watch the world go by.

Hours of Operation: 7:30am – 10pm daily

Location: 247/3 Moo 2, Ao Nang, Krabi Town, 81000

Café 8.98: On Trend

Less of a quiet café and more of a ‘destination’ in its own right, Café 8.98 pleases locals and tourists alike with high quality coffee and excellent brunches. Their slow drip is so good it’d have Agent Dale Cooper coming back for seconds! The burgers come piled with toppings like smashed avocado and their fruit shakes come in a tempting range of blended flavors. If you come in the late afternoon then you may have to cancel your evening plans, as Café 8.98 has a license and often hosts live music. Once you’re in, it’s hard to leave!

The coffees, teas and breakfast bowls can be made with almond milk for no extra cost and the organic dishes are clearly marked on the menu. The vegan breakfast has been hailed as the best in Asia- try it for yourself to see what all the fuss is about!
