This is a great place to lock back and put your feet up while looking at local artists pieces. Definitely had a great San Francisco vibe . And the Thai iced coffee was excellent.

Was expecting art on the walls, what I found was a 'wetherspoons' type cafe with wooden bench booths. The service was ok and the food was ok but expensive for what it was. Cafe food at restaurant prices. probably nice to sit outside on a sunny day and people watch but on a busy corner for traffic.

Located near the river, this quirky quaint cafe has small menu, but is a nice place to linger, read and think. Friendly owner.

We found this place on one of our pamphlets and as it claimed to be welcoming place/art gallery we thought we would give it a try. -My elder son went in and asked if we should take our shoes off BEFORE any of the rest of us had entered -My husband entered (shoes off) and asked if there were any...

I found this place by accident thanks to an Art Map of Chiang Mai that I found at Mai iam. It is like being in an artist's house -- art everywhere, books everywhere, a big communal table to sit at and read, eat, relax. The owner, Joe, is a warm and welcoming guy and his presence makes the place even... More

A perfect place for a quiet dinner. The Meeting Room is far from ordinary. We sat at a big table, surrounded by paintings, sculptures, books and works of art. My friend and I were the only 2 eating there at the time. The food choices included panini and salads. The grilled veggie salad was lovely. While waiting, we enjoyed exploring... More

Came here after visiting a temple on a very hot day. What a pleasant surprise. We really enjoyed the space and exhibits and were made so welcome by our host. Prices were fantastic and the coffee well made. Would definitely come again and would recommend to others to pop in. The air conditioning is a welcome reprieve after the heat... More

Interesting place and concept here with half-library and arts and crafts with nice food and drink. Only draw-back is that it's facing a really busy road at night so I found it a bit polluted from the vehicles on the road -however, can sit inside as well and away from the road. For food try the Panini, followed by home... More

We went to this restaurant not far from the market and near the Ping river, and we were happy to have made this choice. This is a place that seems very familiar, both for the availability of staff and for freedom of moving. They give access to a free library and in fact while we waited for our lunch we... More
