Called in her for breakfast, and it was very nice. The service was very quick and the food cooked wonderful. The gardens are lovely with nice walkways around to look at everything. Good spot to come.

Not easy to find. Overpriced, service barely exists, food ok, tiny portions,. had to stop somewhere else afterwards. I was alone and was barely acknowledged. Had to ask for napkins, condiments and water. (ok, my bad: I made the server get them on 3 trips. She was not happy... Neither was I) 1 compliment: beautiful buildings, surroundings and very nice...

Set in a beautiful garden this place is great for a coffee, cake or some food. They have a variety of coffee specialities. Good cakes! We didn't try the food menu but the salads that were brought to other tables looked yummy & good sized!

Pork salad was very good. Lots of choice. Had a lemon soda was very refreshing. Food was quick and service great. I imagine at night it's very intimate and cosy. We went for lunch and it was bustling and good atmosphere. Cheap too. Would like to go back on next visit.

We recently enjoyed a delicious lunch and cool smoothie ( no alcohol on offer) here after a long walk. The menu is extensive and everything looked good. It is very popular with Chiang Mai residents , offering what's regarded to be the best coffee in the area. The gardens surrounding the restaurant are lovely . It's well worth a visit.

The place itself is gorgeous, with sprawling grounds, comfortable seating & tastefully furnished with restaurants and a great bakery. The place was heaving with bus-loads of tourists so it was rather busy but it's that time of year! To the food--not exciting at all, in fact we did not enjoy it as it was so obviously catered for the mass... More
