Excellent food in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The grilled chicken pesto panini was outstanding and served with a large leafy green salad drizzled with a yummy balsamic dressing. My husband's Thai iced tea was almost too beautiful to drink; a piece of artwork in itself!

The Meeting Room Art Cafe. It is in the lower part of a very old, traditional Thai teak house located on Charoen Rat Rd across the street from Wat Kate. The courtyard has a large metal tin man sculpture to greet you, complete with birds nesting in his stomach and perched on his shoulder. At night he will light your... More

We were fortunate enough to find some really great places to eat in Chiang Mai, and this was a lovely cozy place that we are glad that we found. The taxi driver struggled a little bit to get us there, but once we were in it was a nice experience! Cool Jazz music, and lots of splendid brown furniture, with... More

I got an eggplant and mozzarella grilled panini, which was recommended by the owner. The bread was so fresh and the recommendation didn't disappoint. It was just what I needed. The soft jazz music playing was so soothing and the host was more than helpful and friendly. The walls are lined with bookshelves filled with a variety of readings and... More

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

This is my first review, and I'm really happy to do it at this lovely pub which is located near the river in Chiang Mai. It's a very original, with simple but very good meals at reasonable prices. I ate salads, sandwiches and bruschetta and it was all very good. great service and very nice staff. Surely I we'll be... More

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.
