The Workshop Tuck Shop


The Workshop Tuck Shop serves up tasty Full English Breakfasts and cafe treats. It’s located just out of central Sairee on the same street as Arcadia Bar. Turn west at the crossroads onto the Hin Wong Bay road, and you’ll find the cafe about 100 metres up the road on the right side, opposite Asia Divers Resort.

Opening Hours

Monday to Saturday from 8.30 am to 3 pm, and 8.30 am to 2.30 pm on Sundays.

They specialise in traditional fry-ups. The Workshop Tuck Shop is an excellent choice for enjoying a traditional English breakfast on Koh Tao. With a conventional English cafe feel, there’s no need to make a booking. Simply enter, find a seat, and read the menu as the delightful aroma of sizzling bacon and freshly brewed tea fills your senses.

They are also the best place to purchase on snacks, tea, and treats. Chocolate lovers will be drooling at the sight of ‘the fridge of temptation’. Inside the fridge, you’ll find firm favourites like Dairy Milk, Caramac, Aero, Flake, and Twirls. You can also stock up on imported teas, including PG Tips, Yorkshire, and Tetleys. The shelves there are lined with extra home comforts. You can choose Heinz baked beans, corned beef, Robinson’s squash, Monster Munch, and Fray Bentos pies!


Widely regarded as a top-notch English breakfast on Koh Tao. The Workshop Tuck Shop offers traditional Full English and several variations of it. You can try mini and vegetarian options and the popular ‘Belly Buster’. Breakfast butties and muffins are also available. They have a choice of fillings including the usual suspects like bacon, egg, sausage, black pudding, mushrooms, onions, beans, etc.
During specific periods throughout the year, the restaurant also procures additional treats such as advent calendars and Easter eggs. However, keep in mind that it functions on a first-come, first-served basis, and the available supplies tend to run out rapidly!


Proper English tea, coffee, fruit juice, and UK favourites like Vimto, Tango, and Irn Bru.
