There are a lot of coffee shops in Chiang Mai. A lot. Some good, some not so good, and some are terrible. When in Chiang Mai we always stay right near Wat Phra Singh and we walked by Akha Ama and the coffee smelt so amazing we just had to go in. Hubby loves his coffee and loved the flat... More

Only serves coffee and a few light pastries so don't go expecting meal. I had the piccolo latte and it was wonderful. Definitely would come back. Prices excellent.

Wonderful atmosphere, Sit in the shade, outside on the garden deck or inside with AC. The owner is from the local hill tribes and his two coffee houses support the village by providing all his coffee.

Strong and tasty, just the way I like it. We're staying in the villa korbhun khinma just around the corner and they recommended this place to us. Perfect spot for a quick cup of coffee.

they even knew how to make a flat white and their designs in the foam best i have ever seen. but the taste of the coffee is what made me come back every day. also it is only 50 baht,go figure, the best coffee is also the cheapest . how often does that happen?

I come to Akha Ama Cafe in Rachadamnoen Road (next to Wat Phra Singh) for more than three years now whenever I am in town. Excellent coffees and the best cappuccini I ever had outside of Italy. Well, I had many cappuccini in Italy, and Akha Ama can definitely compete with the best of them. Very kind and lovely staffs,... More

Our 2nd day in Chiang Mai......we were just walking around getting to know the lay of the land ^^ and recognized Akha Ama Coffee as one of the places recommended so we stopped by to take a much needed break with coffee. The coffee did not disappoint~!!!! If you're in the neighborhood then ABSOLUTLY have coffee.

This is such a nice place to escape the busy city and relax with a fine cup of coffee. I had their blend which was a very smooth flavor. The banana muffin was really tasty and fresh. Bit of a trip to get there we took a Tuk Tuk.

Off from the old city and the hectical tourist life there, I found here a very peaceful place to read my book with having a fabulous, warm banana muffin and a very tasty cold brew. I admire the owner for his concept of only offering coffee produced in Thailand and bought from the original owner.
