Taking a short break at Hua Hin, indeed everyone always think "what am I gonna have for lunch/dinner?" or "should I go for seafood tonight?". But there is one place almost everyone will think of when cannot decide what to eat. It is surely "Jekpea Coffee Shop". This place is situated at a corner of the junction of Dechanuchit Road and Naeb Kehardt Road. You will notice the old looking house made out of wood right away. It is always pack with tourists (mostly from Bangkok) during weekends and public holidays. No reservation for this kind of place of course, however, you can grab seats in short time. People do come in and go rather fast.

I guess that this place started out as a coffee shop from its name and then develop through time to be a place that offers variety of food ranging from street food to seafood. Pricing of food here is also in line with other places and perhaps a little cheaper than some street food. Menu for day time is in the form of one person dish but dinner menu is mostly to share type. During breakfast time, there will be stalls of various type of food to be chosen from at the front of Jekpea. Everything here is rather good but not great. Nice for a quick meal.

This time we came here for breakfast and decided to have Assorted Pork in Soup - ต้มเลือดหมู. For those who do not know what this is, it contains minced pork ball, clotted pork blood, and assorted organ of pork such as stomach and liver. Those who cannot take organs just do not order this. However, I must say that this is actually a nice dish, especially the soft clotted blood. Even organs are nice, cannot detect any bad smell of organ. Supple and delightful soup I must say (7/10).

For beverage, we went for typical Thai drink: Iced Thai Milk Tea and Hot Coffee. Iced Thai Milk Tea was rather good and not too sweet but maintained some sweetness to give unique taste of milk tea (6/10). Hot Coffee came with a cup of hot Chinese tea. It was black coffee. Nothing special for this but good for morning wake up (5/10).
