Love the food here, quality is very good and prices are quite reasonable. Great place for breakfast if you want some pancakes or eggs Benedict. They serve a delicious cappuccino and very good fruit smoothie. Lunchtime I often go for a Reuben sandwich which is delicious, i'm actually amazed they can find a good corn beef in Thailand. The staff... More

Went for lunch and it was amazing. Ordered a gluten free blt sandwich and my wife ordered a chicken salad sandwich on regular bread. Both of us loved our sandwich and would recommend the place. Service was friendly also and you have a call bell on the table to request your bill or a waiter to come to the table.... More

Found this place by accident. American themed . Good menu choice . Pancakes and maple syrup was not what I expected to find in this country . Good service and very clean establishment .

It wasn't terrible but it wasn't good also. Service was slow and food mediocre. Prices were high for what you got.

Had bagel with cream cheese which was nice....The staff sounded quite rude when I asked what options do you have in vegetarian....they have just a couple of choices in vegetarian and I feel they should remove the tag vegetarian friendly from their listing...the ambience is quiet clumsy and does not look clean at all....will not visit again....hope the staff can...

Thanks for your review. To get to matters of fact first: We offer breakfast all day. Apart from a few side meats like bacon, canadian bacon, sausages, and such. 90 percent of our breakfast menu is vegetarian. For lunch we have 3 vegetarian sandwiches including one of the world's great sandwiches, muffuletta, and 3 vegetarian soups. We also offer 3... More

Our family was joined by some new friends in the area for breakfast for dinner. Food was great. We had the banana pancakes, apple pie pancakes, and the biscuits and gravy. All were delicious. My son finished his whole waffle quickly and said it was great. The other family got the chocolate pancakes (a ton! of chocolate in them) and... More

We went for breakfast - while I enjoy Thai food, I like a traditional American breakfast option. This place was the place! The food was amazing and the aesthetic was funky 50s diner. Highly recommend.

The menu is huge, but strangely enough, everything I've ever had here is fantastic. The Reuben is always superb, as is the Boston cream pie and the lemon meringue. Don't come to Chiang Mai without visiting especially if you're an expat missing some good food from back home.

We came here hopeful of getting some typical American breakfast dishes but ended up disappointed with our visit. We got here a little after 9am and tried to order hash browns and was told they were out. We also tried to get cinnamon rolls and oatmeal and they also did not have any. We then ordered a breakfast sandwich and... More
