aircon, quiet, great for reading, relaxing. Nice tea sandwich. Coffee is great, but cappuccino is really more like an "American" one (too big, too much milk) , not an Italian one. If you want an Italian cappuccino, order a cafe macchiato and get a little extra milk

Dropped in for a coffee during the Flower Festival. We waited at the counter to order while the two girls behind it were chattering and texting. The girl at the till did not have the courtesy to stop texting when she took our order or later when we paid. She was still on the phone.
Very disappointing. Cabinet food was limited. Coffee Okay. Location was great.

Although the quality of the products served is good, I have not found anything particularly unique about this chain. I expect more than just another "starbucks".

It's fine to be a traveller and act like a local...and fortunately locals in Chiang Mai have caught the coffee bug. Wawee are a chain, not in the Starbucks league, but if you want a dependable hot or iced coffee, Wawee is a relly good option. Particularly the branch on Thanon Ratchadamnoen, in the old Town, where a combination of misting outside and free wi-fi, along with a caffine fix is well worth the visit.
They also sell bags of beans and milled coffee you can bring home. Like many such places they offer a chioce of coffee blends and I certainly recommend the Inthanon, locally grown blend.
They have a good outlet in Pai too.

The one thing you can not fault this establishment is their lack of air conditioning. It is freezing cold which for a short time is welcomed on a hot day but for a long period of time it is not comfortable.Their is outdoor seating with half the seats non smoking and the other half of the seats closer to the busy road non smoking. This is a recent evolution as in the recent past all the seats were smoking. Kudos , to the management for this great improvement in seating arrangement.
I've had only coffee , and it is quite good, not excellent. It is also quite expensive compared to other establishments of greater quality.
The staff are rather indifferent. This is consistent with all the staff I have encountered during the 4 times I have been there. I wonder if this is the staff training policy. If so, it goes counter intuitive as a policy that is in the service industry. It rather stands out as in almost all other eating and drinking establishment the staff exhibit the famous,"Thai Smile" in the ,"Land of smile".
Don't get me wrong, the service is efficient ,;it is fact , that the staff are such an indifferent lot. as if one is disturbing their private reveries and they have stopped to do you a great favor.
To their credit the management staff have provided comfortable seating arrangements for the venue.
If you don't mind the lack of friendly service and you are dressed to meet the conditions of the cold country you recently flew from ,this is a nice place to enjoy an expensive cup of coffee.
