“Great little cafe/bookshop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2014

Great little cafe with good coffee and food, and the manager Ella always has something interesting to say. Wide selection of books also, ranging from travel guides to classics to recent fiction.

“Oasis for readers and coffee addicts alike!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

What an oasis Hornbill Books and Café is for travellers looking for a friendly stop for second-hand English and foreign language reading materials. You can exchange and buy second hand books here and sit an enjoy the friendly atmosphere at the same time. The owner Paey is friendly and bubbly, and happily has customers whiling away a few hours browsing, reading and drinking coffee. If you're travelling through the area and have been avoiding the whole Kindle reading experience then this is a great place to renew your reading materials as well as meet other travellers and locals. It is truly a little oasis in Nong Khai for lovers of real books and coffee drinkers!

Lovely italian style pesto and a great al fresco dining experience. Staff are friendly and attentive and some of the best coffee in Isaan.
