Located down the end of Gapang Beach is the Tipsy Toby Café, a small café that finds its home in the Bubble Addict Dive Centre and Flying Elephant Yoga Studio. Tipsy Toby is a beach shack that overlooks the many shades of blue of Sabang Bay and Gapang Beach. It’s a great spot to dig your toes in the sand whilst sipping on a nice cup of coffee.
The atmosphere is chill and relaxed – the perfect place to dig into a good book or just soak in the sun and gentle sounds of the ocean.
There’s quite a selection of coffees and beverages to choose from – from the regular coffee favorites like cappuccino, macchiato, espresso, Americano…to some new age picks like the Golden Latte and Buttered Coffee.
The buttered coffee (IDR55k |U$4) was actually really good. Also known as the bulletproof coffee, it is an energizing cup of joe that combines good quality hot coffee with virgin coconut oil (or unsalted butter or ghee). The two are blended for about 20-30 seconds until it looks like a foamy latte. This cup of goodness is creamy and perfect for a steady lasting energy (like several hours lasting) – unlike normal coffee which simply gives you a burst of energy.
There’s also a good selection of juices and smoothies. We had the Love Potion (IDR30k | U$2), which was an oh-so-delicious combination of watermelon and coconut milk. This unconventional combination was happiness in a cup and the perfect refresher after a morning filled with diving. As the menu states… this is the watermelon juice you’ll always be dreaming about.
Eating at the Tipsy Toby Cafe
The food menu is simple, yet delicious.
The pizza is on a thin naan crust and there are three toppings to choose from – margarita, three cheese, and beef salami with cheese. Our margarita pizza (IDR60k |U$4.5) was just what we needed – splash a bit of tobacco sauce on the top and you’re good to go.
The hummus + veggies (IDR35k |U$2.5) was also another gem on the menu. The hummus was tangy and creamy, and was a delicious topping on the carrot and cucumber slices. Definitely a healthy snack option!
Other choices on the menu includes Naan Wrap with Hummus + Veg, Scrambled Eggs, French Toast, Pancakes, Oats in a Jar, and Fruit Salad…just to name a few more choices. For those opting to stay in Gapang Beach, the Tipsy Toby is a good option for breakfast.
A lovely and super chilled out café at Gapang Beach in Pulau Weh.The staff are friendly and helpful, while the menu is well-priced for the quality of food and beverage. Tipsy Toby is a great spot for breakfast and lunch, whilst enjoying the beautiful views over the beach and ocean.
