Great food with nice ambience. Love the creamy carbonara and chicken wings. Their signature coconut cream pie is heavenly for coconut lovers, not too sweet. Good brunch in the garden setting but we preferred dining indoors and we did. Very affordable too.

My goodness! Not only was this one of the most beautiful restaurants I’ve ever been to, but it was incredibly delicious! There are ferns and trees all over the outdoor seating area. Walking inside or towards the bathroom, you are treated with a lovely koi...pond, featuring huge koi! We spent so much time looking at the menu because it was hard to decide on just one thing. The pleasure I felt when I started eating my food was when I have not experienced from food in far too long. After completing our meal, we were faced with another tough decision which was what we would get for dessert! Without a doubt, my favorite dining experience I have had thus far in all of Thailand. I would, without a doubt, recommend it to anyone even considering visiting Chiang Mai. I also want to make clear, as I have seen outdated posts, they are NOT cash only. We paid with MasterCard and saw people using VISA as well. Altogether, 11/10More

So aptly named - it indeed feels like being in a forest, with beautiful trees around you and low wood chairs. They also have an indoors space with A/C, although the patio was definitely chill enough. Only tried their flat while and orange cheese pie,...but they do have a full menu of food as well.More

The mood & tone here makes you feel like home. Cozy light tone also keeps the heat down & brings more relaxation. There is outdoor seating if you prefer some green vibe in little garden. Variety of cakes, smoothies & I love Cheese Quesadillas here...too. You can choose outdoor or indoor seating with air-con to avoid some heats outside. Good place for kids, family & friends.More

The setting is just gorgeous, surrounded by greenery and a koi pond. A really great place to sit and relax. We had some late lunch here after a long morning of sights and temples. The shrimp bisque soup was absolutely delicious, and my partner’s thai...curry with a side of roti was equally good. Wish we’d had the chance to go back again whilst we were in Chiang Mai to try the desserts, they looked amazing!More

A family meal which everyone enjoyed. We were all really looking forward to dessert but the main course was such a good size we couldn’t fit it in.

This little hidden 'forest' in the city of Chiang Mai is what i have been looking for to chill out and avoid the heat during my lunchtime. Soft jazz music is playing in the background. Birds, fishes and sounds of water completing the relaxing atmosphere....There is also indoor space for those who carry their laptop and on the weekends, when there is live music, the upper floor, which is more private, can also be visited. Fern Cafe One is great to have a coffee or breakfast while enjoy reading a book in the morning or have lunch as i did. For starter had a roti with spinach & mushrooms which was creamy and delicious. Afterwards, I tried a huge pineapple stuffed with flavoured fried rice. But something was missing... I couldn't leave this place without trying their popular coconut cream pie. All their homemade bakery looked intrigued but this one was highly recommended by the staff. Maybe it does not look jaw-dropping on the picture but believe me, it is sensational! It is not too sweet, with a light texture and simultaneously refreshing because of the coconut pieces inside. If you are in Chiang Mai go for it!More

The menu was extensive and good. Sat outside in the greenery. My only complaint is that I ordered dessert, an ice cream / fruit combo, with my entree' & low behold the waitress delivered both at the same time! Consequently I took most of my...entree back to the hotel as the ice cream was melting. They have homemade, luscious desserts but order it after you've eaten your entree'.More

Great food and it was cheap. Only thing was I hated the pigeons outside as they lurk around for food and will fly on your seats... so I sat inside instead :)
