We came here hopeful of getting some typical American breakfast dishes but ended up disappointed with our visit. We got here a little after 9am and tried to order hash browns and was told they were out. We also tried to get cinnamon rolls and oatmeal and they also did not have any. We then ordered a breakfast sandwich and... More

Located in Chang Klan Road close to the night bazaar/Pantip Plaza, it is a great diner, has everything on the menu that you could wish for, has a great range of desserts i.e. waffles, sandwiches, pancakes and all very reasonably priced

The service and food were definitely worth the walk but don't expect to find omelettes here. Our little round table was too small for all the dishes we got but the waitresses were very attentive despite there being a large group that arrived at the same time. The hash browns were made just the way I like them: cooked golden... More

If you are tired of eating local food and want something more western, wow, this is the place. Wonderful decor, it's very retro, the service is great, the prices are good and they have some good vegetarian options.

I had read that this diner would be good for Gluten Free eating and since it wasn't too far from our hotel, I got a group of 6 of us to go for lunch. Great, fun decor. Great deli food. Who expects corned beef and pastrami, with your choice of about 6 breads including a few gf choices, in Thailand?... More

We found this place quite by mistake and were so happy we did. The two of us had been craving bagels for days & all the other options in Chiang Mai had mixed reviews. The service here is quick & efficient with 'call bells' on the tables. The bagels were fabulous, plenty of salmon & cream cheese. Thanks for fulfilling... More

Both my gluten loving husband and his gluten free wife love this place! It really does have the most gluten free options because they make their own gluten free bread. I have yet to find gluten free bread in any grocery stores. So this makes me very happy!! They cover breakfast, brunch, and lunch very well. We have not been... More

This restaurant in Chiang Mai is delicious. I have only had breakfast there, but it is great. The first day I had scrambled eggs w/English muffin which tasted homemade, it was very dense. Today I had French toast made w/Challah bread. Very good coffee.
