All ingredients fresh, food fab and friendly family cooking and serving. Incredibly reasonable Margarita pizza for 109 Small, 159 Large. I love pizza and the small was large enough. Taste has a real home made zest about it. Not many tables, seating for 12. New smaller location from what other visitors have said on the main road, opposite the river,... More

We visited here for 3 nights in a row as we were stopping at a hotel just down the road. The owner was extremely attentive & absolutely lovely. She remembered our preferences from the first night for each subsequent visit. My sister in law is Vegan & whilst no food on the menu accommodated this, the owner was more than... More

The cafe has now moved just down the main rive road opposite immigration. Locals were helpful and directed us to the new spot. We ordered a cheeseburger and northern style pizza and both were a welcome change from our usual rice dishes. There was no pasta or bakery available but the man who served and made our food was lovely... More

Wow so good and very tasty. The owners where very sweet and kind. A husband and wife team who try their hardest... More

I went here late one evening after just arriving in town. I was treated really well and the service was good and the Janine pizza was outstanding. Even though I was the last customer of the night and only one in there I was never rushed and they asked to make sure I didn't want anything else. I would recommend... More

Unfortunately we only tried this small restaurant on our last night. The owners and young assistant where very hospitable. They bake their own bread and cakes even home made chocolate truffles which where offered along with a aperitif (using home grown produce) complimentary. We had chicken cooked in a delicious sauce, really is worth a visit.

We stopped in at Janine cafe after seeing the great reviews on TA Very sadly there was nothing in the bakery goods, the cakes were definitely not home made and not fresh, things we asked for on the menu were not available apparently. There was no fresh bread on offer, there were some biscuits in an open jar that. We're... More

There are not a lot of dining options in Chiang Saen so it was surprising to find someplace as good as the Janine Cafe. The owners use fresh local ingredients (we had spectacular pumpkin soup from a pumpkin that the family grew on site!) There are great bakery items as well (cookies, cakes and cupcakes) if you are in the... More
