My boyfriend and I found this place on TripAdvisor and true to the reviews it really is a lovely area. Shaded seating in a courtyard area with fans to keep you cool whilst you're trying to escape the heat of the day. All organic food and no msg. Seeing this on the menu we should have twigged it wasn't really going to fit into our low backpacker budget! We had a lovely lunch and smoothies but it did come to a steep cost (not for most but definitely for a backpacker on a tight budget!) I'd highly recommend for someone who a budget isn't an issue - but if you're a backpacker wanting a cheap eat this probably isn't the place for you!

Signed, down a small alley and just off the main road this was a lovely find. I wanted to buy authentic locally made gifts for my daughters and this place was perfect. Much better (and consequently more expensive) than the Night Market, but way less than the prices at the high-end shops further down the road. In two visits, after looking around extensively, I bought several pieces here for which I didn't see a match anywhere else. You'll love it.

Good place for a rest and enjoying the local coffee. They also sell local handcrafted items - much nicer than what you get on the night market.

Lovely little place hidden away down a narrow lane from the Main Street, definitely worth a visit. I had fresh egg rolls and a delicious lime soda and sat in the small courtyard garden.
There's also a little shop selling traditional crafts and fabric items.

What a lovely place this is! The lady running things is so nice and helpful and friendly. The shop is great, selling gorgeous textiles which are handwoven and naturally dyed. There is a lovely garden outside where you can sit and enjoy the delicious things on their menu. We only had tea and snacks, but the food looked delicious and we'll certainly be back for lunch! A lovely spot.
