“Lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

This has a lovely atmosphere and great cakes. I think there are better coffee shops in the area if you are a coffee officionado and also better restaurants as servings here are quite small and there is nothing special to make the food stand out. The atmosphere, however, does make up for it and the food and drinks are still very good. It is a little out of the way but it is we'll sign posted and the local tuk tuk guys obviously know it well. Take an afternoon off and it is worth it just to kick back and enjoy the venue.

“Chill place”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Nice chilling place for local and tourists (Thai & western). Especially people who is a cake lover and juice. Here provide a good location for all kinds of people who like to be in a quiet place and a bit far from a big city Chiang Mai. You will fall in love with this place :)

“Very busy on weekends”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Sala Cafe is a very casual place, offering decent coffee, various kinds of cake (stick with the apple pie!), and quite a variety of simple but delicious Thai dishes at very reasonable prices. But the most outstanding feature of this place is the atmosphere - located on a small hill, surrounded by greens, with lots of different plants decorating the various outdoor sitting areas. Thanks to smartphones even if the house is full, especially on weekends, it remains still fairly quiet. A good choice to hang out, if you happen to be in the area. Unfortunately not open in the evening.

“The only reason to be there is atmosphere”
Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

The place is beautiful indeed, even though it's quite far away from main road. I'm not a coffee drinker,so I could not suggest on coffee. For tea, nothing could go wrong when you use branded tea. Quite happy with the portion of tea. Iced brender fruit juice is just average and a bit too sweet from syrup. The food and cake is just average. But the service can really put me off. Staff has never smile not to mention a word of thanks. I even thank her for serving me. Encounter three time in one month of unpleasant service. Maybe will give another try to see if thing would change.
