A relatively new (March 2022) "rice paddy cafe & restaurant."

From a distance it appears a bit strange & you would never know how pretty the place really is.

An excellent spot to take the family &/or girlfriend, or just to hangout with the Instagram crowd.

The menu looks damn good & the food reviews are excellent on the web, but sadly for the coffee drinkers, your coffee is only served in a plastic cup.

Skip the coffee, have a cold drink & enjoy some food would be the way to go.

Check it out sometime.

A return to the Flow Cafe & Bakery to test out the all day English breakfast.
I was not disappointed.

Coupled with the view it is a winner

Efficient service & excellent food.

The Pla tubtim neung manao, steamed fish with lemon is an absolute winner with amazing flavours.
All the food, & we had a genuine feast on the night, was excellent! Sadly, I forgot to get the food photos.

This spot is certainly magic, with good off-street parking too.
Good service & friendly, happy staff.

Highly recommended for a super chill night out on the Mekong.
