This is a very nice coffee and cake place by the river, we sat outside in the beautiful garden whilst we enjoyed delicious cakes and freshly ground coffee. The kids enjoyed a sandwich, it's a nice place to wile away an hour or two.

i know 2-3 places on the river of Chiang Rai and this is probably the best one, decoration and location are really nice, and it's a good place to bring friends out of Chiang Rai traffic and out of backpackers eateries. Of course prices are higher, my friends found it sometimes too high compared to the quality and the quantity.... More

This place was a real treat-kind of like an oasis! My wife would probably go there everyday if we lived in Chiang Rai. The building kind of looks like a house you would find in New England.

Had the Coconut Cake and the "Trio" beverage. The cake was very obviously not baked on site. The texture was that of a Twinkie. The taste was ok, but I've found better value elsewhere. The "Trio" drink was some sort of mix between Thai Tea and Coffee. It tasted mostly like Thai Tea. It was decent, but I certainly had... More

I'm not sure if it is because I have been living in Thailand for 4 months, but I thought this place (and the food) was incredible! The atmosphere is ADORABLE. It looks likes F.
