My girlfriend and I stumbled upon this place whilst looking around on this side of the river. We wanted a cake and a coffee so tried this out! It was quiet in the café but this meant we got to chat with the owner; Joe, who was very interesting and friendly. Cake was unbelievable and you must try the brownie... More

If you're an art fan or have some spare time for reading, this is the place to be. The place displays collections of work from artists in Chiang Mai, ranging from painting to jewelry. However, don't expect a gallery, the place is not that big. Aside from coffee and tea, they also serve beer and wine.

Right near Thapae Gate and several services such as money exchanges and car rental places, this cafe serves great pancakes. Try the banana or mango ones. These pancakes are pancakes! Not the crepe like pancakes which are served often here

What a find...We stumbled upon this place while driving by and were delighted by the quality of the aesthetic interior, the delicious salads and bookcases of art books and paintings. Great place to take some "down time" and feel totally transported to a place of calm and tranquility. Very charming owner.

We visited here a few times while staying locally and will visit again next time we're in Chiang Mai. Great art gallery and while you're browsing they can prepare good coffee and great cakes and snacks.

On a return trip to Chiang Mai, we had to return to the Meeting Place. Great food, great shakes, great atmosphere, and of course wonderful hosts. It also seems that the carrot cake is getting a reputation.

We stumbled upon this cafe by chance & were so happy we did! Interesting art & furniture & the most welcoming host, Fon. We felt right at home, eating (inc Fon's own baked treats) drinking, reading from their extensive library & talking to Fon & others who came in. Was a delightful afternoon.

Had an excellent lunch of paninis and organic salad with delicious fruit shakes. There is all kinds of art to look at while you're waiting for your homemade food, and the couple running the place are very nice. Highly recommended!
