THE CAT HOUSE is tucked back in a quiet soi, just west the northwest edge of Chiang Mai's Moat. I went for an early dessert, just having eaten at Butternut Cafe. The decor + atmosphere is Comfy-funky-LAID-BACK. I chose a Banana-Sesame-CoconutMilk Smoothie and a Brownie. The Smoothie was absolute TOPS! All flavors were wonderfully blended, yet individually discernible: subtly sweet,... More

Delicious shakes, smoothies and great coffee. And very nice and filling dishes for lunch or breakfast. I love how you get loads of fresh vegetables with everything you order, even on their nacho's and quesadilla's! And you get a nice fresh salad with nearly everything on the menu. Also it's really nice how Jacky hires female staff from Burma and... More

Just outside the city wall, with a surprising menu of South American dishes (wraps, burrito, ...), at affordable prices. The staff is from Burma, a bit unexperienced, but very helpful and energetic. We had some wraps, which were delicious. They also serve breakfast and shakes/frappes. The menu changes often, check the blackboard for the season's specials. Ps: Don't know why... More

I love to go have breakfast at the cat house. The breakfast burrito is good and the tortilla omelet is also great. I love how all the ingredients are fresh and home made. When we asked about the sauces, Jacky (the owner) wasn't afraid to tell us how they are prepared. They also have healthy options and smoothies.

I was not on TA before, now that I am I wanted to give a nice feedback for Jacky's food For a while I was staying close by and going for the oats and mango breakfast enriched of the homemade palm sugar yam. Now I just go from time to time for this amazing cuisine and affordable.

The Cat House has great healthy food for pretty cheap. On special they typically have some sort of pesto dish or avocado wraps, which are both very tasty. I was put off by the service at first until I learned that the women working there are from Burma and still adjusting to life in Thailand.

As the title says the food is fantastic however the service is terrible. It seems that the hosts didn't really care. That being said though we went there every day for breakfast and ignored the bad service

Stopped in here when in Chiang Mai in November and enjoyed this place. We fancied a break from Thai food so ordered some Mexican (burritos) and sweet potato and pumpkin chips with a couple fruit drinks. Very tasty food and the drinks were lovely.

This place is fantastic! Incredible value and fresh locally sourced ingredients make for a delicious and healthy menu. The owner is lovely too, wish we didn't find it on our last day here! Highly recommended.
