Viewpoint cafe is a clean and well built establishment perched on the bank of the Mekong. It's a lovely setting with stunning views and being a little away from the main town, quiet too. The service and food were good, nothing extra special but enjoyable...More

We visited the cafe in the morning. No doubt, it was the best place to see the convergence of Khan and Mekong River. We found flowing water, green hills, and a few boat moving around. To be frank, no stunning view, or breathtaking scenery. It...More

Can't comment on food/service given I wasn't a patron, but stumbled upon this place walking along the banks of Nam Khan River. The view of the Nam Khan and Mekong rivers meet is gorgeous! Pictures were taken around noon.

Description
Viewpoint cafe offers you a fantastic view added to your breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is easy to eat a long breakfast in silence here and in the dinner at night the place has changed and gives you a cozy place with palm trees as your roof.
