“Great Coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Staying up in the hill town near Mandalay we were looking forwarding to getting up early for a 'caffeine fix' the next day. So at 7.00 am we dropped in and were greeted with warm fresh cinnamon rolls and cakes.. spot on lattes and a pleasant environment with the sound of grinding coffee, and the buzz of a town coming to life.

The service was great, coffee spot-on and the view onto the street just made that first sip all the more pleasant. Nice that you can even order a light breakfast (eggs etc)

Recommend this place.

“Decent coffee, good cake (bearing in mind you're in Upper Burma!)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Decent iced-coffee! Nice place to sit and watch the world go buy - very popular with the traveller community so a useful spot if you;'re traveling solo. Shame there's no wifi though.

“Great lattes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

I love Myanmar's tea culture but as a daily coffee drinker, I enjoyed this coffee spot in Pyin Oo Lwin. If you can, go early while people are heading to work, and enjoy coffee and people watching while you are in Pyin Oo Lwin.

“Lovely snacks and a great place to meet fellow travellers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

The Golden Triangle was one of the highlights of my trip: blueberry cake, a glass of hot milk and a creme caramel, and sitting on cane chairs in front of the cafe. Marveloous!

“Great coffee and lovely place to take a break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

We loved the real espresso (freshly ground beans) and the setting with comfortable furniture. Great place to take a break, read the local newspaper (for free) or enjoy the local sweets (the cinnamon buns are a delight!)

The location is very central, but on a main street (though not too noisy) and sitting is inside only.

However, the 'hygine area' is a minus, not sure that's a one off, but the washroom was pretty bad.
