Interesting People

One of the most rewarding things about running a Cafe is that you get to meet a lot of different people. Here’s an update on interesting people coming through our doors.

Weddings and Functions

We have arranged many weddings and special functions over the years. Here are some of the best pictures and videos capturing special moments for our guests.


Coldest and freshest draft beer in Chiang Rai!

We love tea and have a large selection from all over the world. Here are some of the best sellers!


We love flowers and at this time of the year some of them are in full bloom. Here are some of the nicest ones!


We love books and have a small but good collection of around 400 titles from all over the world and in all genres. Please feel free to book mark your favorite!! Locals or regular guests are also welcome to borrow them home for shorter periods of time. Enjoy!

Art Exhibitions!

Chiang Rai is the home of many wonderful artists and we often use our conservatory for displaying various types of art free of charge. Right now we have some great pieces from a very young and talented artist called Garin Nadar. Garin is only 13 years old but what a talent he is! Please drop in for a closer look!

The River!

As we are just next to the Kok river we have our own little pier and you are welcome to arrive in style by many of the river boats that cruise around Chiang Rai. Also we have our own Swedish style rowing boat, made in Kanchanaburi, Thailand from a 75 year old original drawing from Blekinge, Sweden. Here are some guests that enjoy themselves on the Kok River!

Have a look at this link for a video from the river (Instagram)!

We love motorcycles! Although most of our visitors arrive in cars some do show up on some spectacular bikes. Here are some of the best!
