We came with big expectations, so at first the place looked kinda small. But the serve great coffee, really!

Also take a look at their machine, a Dutch build Kees van der Westen.

As this wasn't far from our hotel we figured we didn't have anything to lose by checking it out to see if the reviews were right. It was very quiet when we got there & the coffee was the best we've ever tasted!

My husband & 2 kids came here due to Trip Advisor reviews. We had 3 coffees & Pong offered to make babycinnos for the kids which he charged 30 baht each for (1 of my kids didn't touch his at all). The range of coffees was great, the machine is one of the best & apart from being a bit startled at how much the bill came to, we were generally satisfied but not impressed enough to want to return. The following week, we discovered Ristr8to coffee on Nimmanhaemin. If you are serious about coffee & want a cup that will have you talking about it for a long time to come, I'd suggest you head straight there & bypass Ponganes.

amazing latte and cappo. Every time just as perfectly enjoyable. Owners very friendly. The small quaintness of the cafe makes you feel proud to find such a gem. Would be here at least four time a week if i lived in Chiang Mai!
