Number 1 on our list is Cafe 8.98 in Ao Nang. This cafe is a mere 5 minutes away from the beach. A real life saviour, I must say! Me and my friends were melting in the heat and cafe 8.98 was like nirvana in a desert. Service was A+, and so were the salads we had. Go for the ice coffee, it bound to give you a kick of life.

New kid on the block HUB Cafe brings cafe ambience to the next level. Located on the main road leading into Krabi Town from Ao Nang, HUB Cafe is seated on a palm plantation, surrounded by limestone cliffs. Your coffee-sipping view in Krabi can’t get better than this.

Cuckoo’s Nest

Cuckoo’s Nest is one of the first eatery to open by the beach of Krabi. Better yet, it is a family-run business. Here, you’ll enjoy local food in chillax cafe vibes. We loved its sunny yellow building and hand-painted name. Have a coffee, but don’t forget to have a local noodle or rice dish!

Breezy and sunny by the beach, The Coffee Club makes a beautiful place for alfresco brunch. With its roots in Brisbane since 1989, The Coffee Club is a popular Australian chain that promises good coffee, no doubt about it! Nocturnal creatures, there will be drinks served up till midnight.
