Located on a small side street in downtown Sakon Nakhon, Come Home Cafe (ร้านคำหอม สกลนคร) is our favorite coffeehouse in the city. Built largely from old Thai wood, the cafe has a delightful rustic feel, evoking the traditionally made homes one finds throughout Isaan. The main drink items seen on the board behind the counter, and the sweets in the glass case, are only a small selection of the items on offer. If you are looking for something more decadent for a drink or dessert, be sure to check out the menu that sits on the little round table at the entrance.
In addition to drinks and desserts, Come Home (คำหอม) also sells OTOP items, such as indigo dyed garments, hand woven tops, locally made Phu Phan mountain wine, and other items. The wine is surprisingly good for Thai wine (which if often quite sweet), and made from Thai blueberries (mao) instead of grapes. They also sell some unique freshly ground coffee for takeaway, which you'll find in a side room with a refrigerator.
The air-conditioned interior of the Come Home is very cozy, with some nice modern and Japanese artwork on the walls. It is easy to overlook the fact that they have a relaxing, shady terrace on the outside, where you can enjoy a cappuccino or latte in a cool setting even on a hot day. Turn left after entering the cafe to find that area.
Lastly, note that there is no signage that says Come Home, either at the cafe or on Google Maps. Since few tourists ever visit, the cafe goes by it's Thai name: คำหอม. When pronounced the name sounds somewhat like Come Home, but really it is closer to "Come Hawm".
