Simple Plan x River
Keep it simple with this hidden loft-style cafe on the riverbank
Hovering above the Tha Jin river in Nakhon Pathom, Simple Plan x River (www.fb.com/simpleplanxriver) is a teensy cafe that lets its surroundings do the talking.
The all-raw decor sees unpolished concrete walls and floors topped off with minimal furnishing. Instead of AC, diners bask in the most natural of river breezes.
On offer is a handful of baked goods and drinks, including drip coffee with a small selection of light-medium roast beans from places like Uganda, El Salvador and Ethiopia (starting at B80).
Hot plates come in unexpected forms, like a spicy sambal spaghetti with crispy karaage (B89) or a version of dried chili and bacon (B89).
Situated about an hour’s drive from Bangkok, they only open on the weekend (10am-6pm) to ensnare daytrippers.
