Interesting place and concept here with half-library and arts and crafts with nice food and drink. Only draw-back is that it's facing a really busy road at night so I found it a bit polluted from the vehicles on the road -however, can sit inside as well and away from the road.

We went to this restaurant not far from the market and near the Ping river, and we were happy to have made this choice. This is a place that seems very familiar, both for the availability of staff and for freedom of moving. They give access to a free library and in fact while we waited for our lunch we... More

A very different place from the usual pubs, restaurants or coffee shops. Its simplicity it is quite attractive, and involving because there is a library for read books all for free. The owner is a very kind and helpfu manl, the food is in the fast food style, but very good and genuine. By my side, suggest you try

This is primarily an art gallery that also offers coffee, tea and sandwiches. We went to view the art and bought a local sculpture. Joe is quite pleasant and helpful, and makes a tasty panini.

Not far from the river, and when we walked back from the market we saw this place that caught our attention, as well we went in to eat a snack and rest a little. This is a truly original Cafe, with a library inside, where you can enjoy food and free of charge consult or read some books. Accessible prices,... More

It's small, it's has air con, sandwiches, great smoothies and wifi, but most of all it has visiting art exhibitions. Each one is very different so it's worth coming back to see the next, a culture highlight in Chiang Mai.

This quaint café served some of the best food we had in Chiang Mai. The menu consisted of Thai food, paninis, and salads. After spending over a week eating pad Thai and sautéed vegetables my friend and I were yearning for fresh salads and were not disappointed. Both of our salads were a generous serving of delicately arranged vegetables with... More

Its a beautiful space profiling some great artists. The menu was fairly simple but hey I like that! Lovely coffees and few tasty treats. A great place to chill out and empty your brain!

I had been to most of the other art galleries and shops in that area of Charoen Rat Road near the Mae Ping river, but not this one. From the outside - from which you can't see much, due to the closed up architecture and air conditioning -it looked small, dark, and mainly for the younger crowd. However, when I... More
