I loved my coffee stop here on our last trip to CM. the barista was telling me about all the places he had been and made coffee at, to find he had been to my home town and loved the same coffee shops that I love! A good sign! We are coming back in November and I am looking forward... More

The new location is 133/5 Ratchapakhinai Road near the corner of MoonMuang Lane 5 so only a short walk from their old location. Pong and Ness have put together a nice new cafe with plenty of space and a high ceiling. The coffee is as delicious as ever and the extra space makes the place even better for meeting friends.

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.

If you're a coffee lover, then be sure to check this place out. Very relaxing and friendly owners. They roast their own beans and clearly take pride in what they serve. It's a little oasis in the heart of the old city.

We ended up visiting Ponganes four times! Definitely try their iced americano, easily one of the best we've had in south east asia. There is a... More
