The coffee is high quality and the aesthetic of the coffee shop is very nice. I didn’t like the plant based milk because it was gritty which was pretty gross. Also there were a ton of people there.

Great coffee. I like to buy my beans here. The coffee shop itself isn’t super huge so it’s not your hangout or studying coffee shop. Super friendly staff.

Coffee for a good cause. The coffee is great and the flavors are bold. Indoor and outdoor seating available. They also sell coffee beans in case you want to bring some home

Had 2 coffees and a lemon pound cake (?) there. Dirty was not too balanced, a bit too milky for me. Their signature Manee Mana was exceptionally good though -- expresso, honey, ice, and an orange peel, perfect combination! Bought a bag of coffee beans...as well. Asked the staff for a not-too-acidic one, and they recommended "Strong" (local coffee beans, fully washed, rich of spicies with clove like, dark chocolate candy and caramel syrup, earthy and black pepper finish, as stated on the bag ;))More

Quaint little café! We got their specialty, Manee Mana. It was coffee infused with honey and an orange peel. Also, the Matcha Latte. Both were very good! Prices are decent too!

The coffee here is great. We come back every week for coffee beans, which they grind for us. FYI the shakeratos are Italian style - just coffee and ice with optional simple syrup. I'm used to Shakeratos in SF which have milk and the sweetness...isn't optional. The only thing that would make this place better is if their cafe offered almond milk lattes.More

Fantastic quality coffee that serves a bigger mission. Taste is wonderful and price perfect. Walked out with buying a bag of beans to treat myself at home!

After almost-uniformly terrible coffee in Japan, it was great to finally have a decent brew in Thailand. Locally grown beans, ethically sourced and an expertly made flat white started in Chiang Mai sojourn perfectly.

Nice cafe. Coffee is top quality and on top of that the bar is plastic free. Only glasses, cups and metal straws. A pioneer of the movement in Asia.

This place smells delicious when you enter and the flat white is very good. They aren't particularly fast but the wait is worth it.

Hands down the best coffee I had in Chiang Mai. Loved their flat white ( as good as a good New Zealand one! ) and Im fussy. I visited several times and was never disappointed. Great price too!

I love the coffee and the quality is high. It's very delicious. But there carrot cake was old and dry. It looked fine from the counter but when it was brought to me, it was cumbersome to eat it. Why do these great cafe's insist...on serving old bakery items and the cake itself was 80b. ..not cheap , so from such place you expect freshness.:(More

My husband and I are super picky about our coffee tastes and are always looking for fresh roasts (that aren't too dark) with great flavor profiles. We thoroughly enjoyed the coffee here - the beans are fair trade and come locally from Northern Thailand (and...are super affordable if you can grab a bag or two). The beans are actually less expensive than Ristr8to coffee (<$10 for most of their 12oz bags) The espresso itself had flavor notes of "Thailand" in it with slight exotic hints of curry/five spice. Friendly staff, great atmosphere. Very close to one of the temples in Old Chiang Mai! Highly recommend this place (and Ristr8to or Doppio) if you can stop in.More
