5 Best Coffee Shop in Chiang Mai

Recommended Coffee Shop In Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai’s best cafes could hold their own in any of the world’s coffee shop hotspots. The laidback nature of Thailand’s northern capital ensures a steady flow of custom who are quite happy to sit back and enjoy a great cup of coffee while soaking up the true nature of Chiang Mai.

We love man different types of cafes in Chaing Mai; funky Old City shophouses in the heart of the tourist quarter selling beans sourced from all over the world to local teak houses selling coffee sourced direct from the family farm – we have tried them all and present the very best of them here. Of course, many of Chiang Mai’s best coffee shops also have brunch menus and homemade cakes so you can fill up for the day or treat yourself to something sweet.

Akha Ama Café Chiang Mai Old City

Akha Ama cafe opened in 2010 and is a cosy cafe down a hidden soi in the Santitham area, north of the Old City. There is an air conditioned indoor area and a leafy outdoor area, shaded by trees. The cafe works as a social enterprise, so the coffee farmers are given a fair wage and all profits go back to the village that grows the beans. Most of the staff and the founder of Akha Ama come from the hill tribe village and are very knowledgeable about coffee. The cafe as well as the founder, Lee Ayu, have become quite famous in Thailand and on weekends and public holidays the cafe is busy with visitors. Read More...

Doppio Ristr8to is widely considered to be the best coffee shop in Chiang Mai. The owner worked for many years in Australia, won awards for his latte art and brought back the secret skills of good coffee to Chiang Mai. The shop on Nimmanhaemin Road is very small with lots of low tables, and is always full. It has an indoor area that is air conditioned and lots of outdoor seating in the sun. Doppio Ristr8to isn’t the type of cafe to sit hours in, and people often come to drink their coffee, take photos and then leave. Read More...
