This brand new Flagship coffee shop is very nice, rather expensive and full of mosquitoes that buzz you non stop. Why does the management not do anything about it. Mosquitoes are a serious health hazard and the problem should not be taken lightly. There are plenty of easy solutions.

Wawee is a solidly "good" experience.

Certainly not the best coffee in town, but certainly not the cheap stuff, either. I find the taste slightly more agreeable than Starbucks.

Service is inconsistent depending on which franchise you go to and who's working the shift, which is a significant disadvantage compared to Starbucks, whose staff I have found about 99% outstanding worldwide. I would give Wawee's service an "OK" rating.

The place itself is excellent, on par with Starbucks, perhaps even better as I believe they offer free wifi (I did not inquire, but seem to think so). Seating is comfy, temp and humidity are controlled, music is correct, ambience is very good, it's a pleasant place to come in from the heat and rest for a while.

Overall -- recommended for the whole experience, though you might hit a bump on the service side of things if you go to the wrong franchise at the wrong time.

I keep coming back to Wawee coffee as it's unbeatable. Great aroma, not bitter, the milk isn't over-heated and the smooth taste is addictive! Definitively beat Starbucks coffee by miles.

Unlike, New York or, say, suburbia, U.S.A., Chiang Mai does not boast a Starbucks on every corner, which is both a blessing and a curse. Wawee does a good job of filling that void, providing decent-enough café beverages and snacks, the best branch of which is the bi-level, ultra cozy Tita Gallery branch, a destination unto its own, with a seemingly expanded beverage selection and the best selection of pastries I've seen at a café in Thailand (try the Apple Crumble). The "Room" branch near Big-C Extra in the vicinity of Payap University is a nice place to read or study but lacks an impressive pastry selection. Nonetheless, the facilities are invariably clean and well air-conditioned and the staff are incredibly friendly. The branch by the River Ping and in the Airport Plaza benefit from the charms of their respective location. Any place you see the logo, at least you can be sure to benefit from decent coffee, etc. and clean, comfortable facilities.
