A lot of love has gone into every detail of the space to create an ambiance of being comfortable and relaxed.

Without question the best of the many coffee houses in the city of Chiang Rai no doubt about it! Great food, well trained staff with a wonderful restaurant atmosphere situated on the banks of the Kok River. It's more than just another "Coffee House" in the city.
