I've heard lots of positive comments about this cafe, so decided it was worth a visit for lunch. My companions had all been before and knew the menu well, so I quickly decided on the samosas. Such a good choice; 3 ample sized samosas, packed...More

This place is amazing. The food is locally sourced, organic, and mainly vegan. They have a great cause which helps refugees from Burma. There is a clothing shop to purchase second hand clothes that gives 100% of profits. This place is highly recommended must see...More

The food here is incredible! One of the best meals I had during my trip to Thailand. The flavours are amazing, and the staff were lovely! They also run a little charity shop at the back of the cafe. Left with a T-shirt :)

Our beautiful location is on the North side of the moat that surrounds the quaint "old city" of Chiang Mai. It is a perfect place to sit, enjoy the breeze, sunlight and people watching on the main road.The interior is attractive, colorful and bright with our student's art work and long share tables to encourage customers to sit together and make new friends or private tables and a small sofa in the kids corner where there are plenty of books, toys and art supplies to keep the kids happy while parents enjoy their healthy vegetarian or vegan western or local style breakfast, lunch, smoothies or coffee and dessert.We serve many Burmese and ethnic foods that you can't get anywhere else so it is fun to try something new! We also have a fun and funky little Pre-Loved Charity Shop in the cafe where you can not only donate your old clothing, household items, books and more but purchase goods and support our charity at the same time. We have loads of English language novels, travel guides, hats, shoes, scarves, jewelry, men's and women's clothing and more. We also sell organic spirulina, triphala and natural skin care products from local vendors.Please come and check us out today! You can park cars, motorbikes and bicycles along the side of the building.
