Koh Samui Cafe? Hadn't noticed that before... Since when has that been there?
The guy in the newsagents said one half is a Thai restaurant and the other a cafe. As Tolstoy said, it opened last week.
Isn't this just the old caff that closed in the last year or so and has reopened under new ownership, plus the terrace seating now made possible by the square revamp? I didn't notice the sitdown part had become Thai, which will be fairly direct lunchtime competition with the pub, whose cuisine that also is.
I was in the new place this lunchtime for a takeaway sandwich: good granary bread and friendly staff, though the choice of fillings (as well as cake etc) could do with being widened at least to the range offered by those little Borough High Street
Italian outlets. That might also prompt the rather complacent Island Cafe into upping its effort.
