Tha Ton, a place where most folk go through on the way north has a great eatery, Sunshine Coffee.
Well worth a visit for some excellent coffee, farang and Thai food. You wont be sorry you stopped.

Funny thing, we ate there on the way up to the Akha festival & had BLT too!
Good wholesome servings, run by a pommie's wife.

I'm quite often riding up this part of the country so I'll give this place a try. The sandwich looks very good so thanks for the recommendation.

+1 for the BLT at Sunshine and an added bonus is the padded wicker seating if your @rse is feeling a bit worse for wear :)

Apples is especially good at this time of year when the Kok river is literally lapping at your doorstep (at least it was at this time last year) Don't miss the turn-off like I did. it's literally right at the bridge, quite narrow and easy to miss.
I'll probably be up that way soon. Arriving CNX tomorrow for a month:happy4:

I have started using the Marble Restaurant, 30m west along the road from the Sunshine. Reason - Free WiFi. The place is run by Khun Yut, a biker and member of the Freedom Motorcycle Chopper Club. 18 guys in their club.
Helpful guy, food seems ok.

Food & service at the New Ton is still good, but sadly no more music.

but not tonight dear.

The service was attentive & the food really quite good - the late night snack we had, such that on my next over night in Tha Ton I will be dining at the Rim Kok, no matter who the company is.
Well worth checking out.
