Great food!

I loved this little cafe! It was perfect lunch spot, made all the better by conversations with the owner. Salads and sandwiches. I recommend it!

A great place to enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine along with healthy food. A wide variety of local art, paintings, wood, metals, cards, ceramics available. Also has books available, sometimes has events/exhibitions. Best of all owner on site can answer many of of your Thailand questions you may have, overall a great place to chill.

We love to return looking for gifts, pictures, food and drink. We are often blessed with interesting conversation too! The Thai wooden building is as much a work of art as the display's and an eclectic selection of reading is a joy!

We love it here - always something wonderful to look at, a wide variety of art of all sorts, a book sharing centre, cards, pictures etc and some really fresh, tasty, delicious food which can be leisurely eaten with either a lovely glass of wine or a coffee or a freshly mixed smoothie. The owner is a musical sound engineer... More

We first discovered this cafe late in my first stay in Chiang Mai and was impressed with the simple tuna sandwich which Jo, the proprietor turned into a piece of art. The iced coffee also looked too beautiful to drink but I did and it was delicious. We also bought a beautiful print by one of the local artists being... More

I'm a local person here and this is the most favourite cafe in Chiangmai! You can sit here and just sip a drink, walk around the gallery, pick a book to read, etc. the atmosphere is good, the owner is kind, you can work here or just relax without hesitating.

This is one of our very favorite cafes in Chiang Mai. There is not a huge range of food on offer - but some options. It is a great place for a drink, relax and browse. Joe and Fon have collected an amazing range of books that line a whole wall of the cafe. They also support young local artists... More

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
