This is an “Our Pick” in the Lonely Planet guide, which is what brought us to this place.

The inside of the place is nice and warm. Very woody.

The wait staff is very nice and attentive.

There was only one other couple in the joint the whole time we were there, so we weren’t exactly competing for attention.

The menu is in English as well as Thai, which I find to not be a recommendation for a restaurant, as it clearly indicates catering to tourists. English menus tend to bring Westernized variants of local cuisine and jacked-up pricing. This, I think, applies to Dream Cafe. It’s on the pricey side for these parts (600 baht for two of us), and the food isn’t all that great (we ate better for less at a small stand in Old Sukhothai).

New Sukhothai seems to lack the restaurant selections of other places I have been in Thailand, so maybe this is about as good as it gets. Nonetheless, it was a bit unremarkable.
