I went there already a few times and its one of my top favorite shops for coffee. It tastes fantastic and they do additionaly great coffee art. The shop is in a small soi and the outdoor area is in the background of the building, laid-back, relaxed and quiet. Enough space are always available.

Not sure what else to say, because once I discovered the Thai-style iced coffee, I never wanted to order anything else. The staff is very friendly and the coffee is excellent.

I am a self-confessed coffee snob, and I must say: WOW. I am extremely impressed! Absolutely delicious coffee. Amazing quality and flavor. They really know what they are doing here, and it shows!! Nice little garden area to relax in an drink your coffee as well. This is my new go-to spot for delicious coffee! Highly recommended.

Visited with my sis when walking along the alley. We are allergy to caffeine so we ordered a decaffeinated latte suggested by the barista and hot coffee. Overall, we enjoyed our drink there. We will drop by for sure if we travel to Chiang Mai again.

I went to Ponganess Caffe because of the good reviews and with the hope of finding a good coffee and some great food for an european breakfast. We were thrilled with the excellent quality, the good service, and the various types of coffee. Cozy atmosphere, and very friendly Thai owner, surely I'll be back again.
