It is not easy to find as the Ristr8to, Graph Café is hidden in a small corner in the ancient town with a small signboard protruding with a blackboard handwriting the name of the shop in front of the door. It is small, sure enough only for 7-8 people sitting. But you have taught, do not look at the face that catch shape. Let’s imagine a sunny morning, you go to the shop and open the door, wow! To tell the truth, we were dead in the scent of sweet perfume, the warmth of the staff
Graph Cafe is a shop for those who love to explore and love to drink coffee because the drinks here are mixed together quite unusual but so delicious. You should be a little hasty to enjoy a good drink. One of drinks we try is Monochrome, cafe … with charcoal mixed with espresso and vanilla milk, it sounds a little gully but believe us to go here is a very worth drink a try. Not only that, but you can take some beautiful pictures here
The other two type of drinks that we try to do in the cocktail style is also quite unique, guaranteed only at Graph Café
The shop is quite small, but Wifi is free and very strong and so if you want to sit for a long time or work 1-2 hours, you should not just call a type of drink and sit for too long to sin for the shop. There are many good and affordable prices of 2.5 – 3 dollars for a drink, so you do not be afraid to try!

Gateway Coffee Roaster
Gateway Coffee does not have as much open space as other cafes in Chiang Mai, but it is nestled on a small floor. Suitable for those who love quiet, airy to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere in Chiang Mai.
If you go alone, you can also go to the balcony for relaxing in the air, watching the street is quite interesting.
There is a new bakery here next to the bartender also worth a try, also tart cake, cookies, and some basic cake, but sip with coffee will be quite delicious.
We called a dish that I suddenly did not remember the name but taste is also delicious.

Omnia Cafe & Roastery
This place is a bit far from the city, take about 10-15 minutes by motorbike or car, but you will not regret to effort at all when diving here to enjoy a cup of coffee. We do not know more about coffee, as the “experts” said that to know what a quality cafe should see if they roast coffee at the shop or not. When you come to Omnia, you will be surprised when they put a lot of coffee beans in the world around the shop and of course, they will roast them in place, too.
As we said we are not coffee connoisseurs and prefer to drink Latte because it has a lot of milk, light and easy to drink, so when coming here we also order Latte. But Latte is recognized delicious, tastes and is very easy to drink even those who do not know more about coffee will also like this.
There is also a cool drink called ColdBrew Coffee, coffee is packed in a bottle and comes with a glass of ice, we have not tried this but look at the staff take them was very good. You must know it.
In addition, they regularly hell coffee tests, where café owns have traveled throughout Central America to further improve their career, teaching you how to taste and evaluate coffee as a coffee connoisseur If you come to this occasion do not miss it.
And if you can not go to Omnia, you can go to RK Cafe by Omnia, this is an Omnia’s coffee shop but it is opened in the center.
