This seemed to be one of the best eating joints in town, with brilliant ambience, good crowd and a wide variety of food and drinks on their menu. We had way too many dishes at the cafe and each one left us wanting more. A must-visit if you're in Kanchanaburi. What's even better about the cafe is its tiny library where you can enjoy a cup of coffee and read. Despite the fact that there were mainly Thai books inside, the ambience of the library is something you must experience.
