674/14 Thanon Intharakeeree, Mae Sot, Thailand, 63110

Cafe, shop, and gallery where 'artists in exile' exhibit and sell their work. The cafe removed meat from its menu per report, May 2014. It's around the back of the shop and there is a green garden. Kitchen cooks with organic peanut oil and can modify a dish to be vegan when requested. Kitchen closes at 8:30pm. Offers biodegradable boxes for take-away, and you have an option to take a tiffin box for a deposit. Open Tue-Sun 7:30am-9:00pm.

Fantastic food in a peaceful garden - Edit

Delicious food, and only two dollar sign prices by street food standards (dishes are mostly 40-50 baht). Very friendly staff, many of whom speak at least some English. Outdoor seating in a very peaceful setting. Menu seems to be entirely vegetarian with many vegan options.
Note that the HappyCow location on the map is wrong, but the address is correct. Continue west on Intharakeeree Road for about half a mile to find the actual location - look at the addresses on buildings on the north side of the street to situate yourself.

Gorgeous little oasis - Edit

The food, staff and ambience here is fantastic. As far as I can tell, everything on the menu is vegetarian (mostly vegan), with the strange exception of the fried rice which offers to be made with egg or chicken for a few extra baht. The service is lovely, the dishes tasty and delicately prepared, and the prices super cheap (around 25-35 baht per dish or drink). Plus it's a good cause!

Pros: Yummy Burmese food, great prices, gorgeous staff

Cons: closes early (6pm), farang-patronised, no soya milk

Ton Baars As a Farang (this is the Thai word for foreigners) patronizing Borderline, I would like to add a few things to the review above.
The menu at Borderline has no meat at all. The chicken option was on the menu for a few years, but apart from the first months never implemented.
The prices have gone up, like in most places, and now a dish or salad is between 40 and 50 baht. A fresh juice 35-40 baht. (30 baht to the US $)
All dishes are freshly prepared, and all drinks as well. There are no sodas or alcohol for sale.
Since July 2012, the restaurant is open until 9 pm.
There are also cooking classes.
And although it is patronized by farang, the staff is 100% Burmese, and it is run as part of a collective of several Burmese and Thai women groups. The collective also operates a Handicraft shop and a gallery.
Currently Borderline is expanding its activities with home made shampoo and dish washing liquid, peanut butter and bread.
It is also looking into using organic vegetables, however the supply in Mae Sot is still very irregular and therefore it is not possible to be organic all the time.
And you guessed right, apart from patronizing the restaurant, I have also been involved as a volunteer since the start.
