“Little escape from Thailand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

We only stayed in Chiang Rai one night but found ourselves at this cute cafe 3 times. It has a lovely atmosphere, with friendly staff and good well priced food. The decor is well done and feels like you are in cafe in another part of the world, nice little break from the crazy streets if Thailand. Also free wifi with a purchase over 50 baht! :) and you can use the power points at a small cost

“one of the nicest cafés in CR”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

good food, very good coffee, cosy seats, reasonable prices, friendly people.

Until you look at the large price table and notice that they (like a few other places) charge you for recharging phones or other gadgets. Not ot mention the other overpriced services they offer. This makes them look greedy and ruins the otherwise good impression. It's true that the price for electricity has skyrocketed in recent years in Thailand. And in a café like this, they must keep the aircon running all day. But charging a small battery has nothing to do with it.

“Good Fresh Food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Just a nice relaxing place to have a meal. Right across the street from the bus station. If you miss western food or a good smoothie, this is your place. Prices are reasonable as well.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

This was my favorite restaurant in Chiang Rai. Right near the bus station, it had a nice open-air atmosphere with comfortable chairs/couches, a great menu with lots of vegetarian options, delicious food, and friendly staff. Clearly caters to the backpacking crowd, with Backpacker magazines on travel on hand for reading over a coffee. I'm no longer a backpacker myself but thought it was an excellent find.
