Art Cafe, Chiang Mai

Art Cafe is right by the Thapae Gate between McDonald’s and Starbucks. We ate there every second day so they must have been doing something right. The menu is huge and they are yet another restaurant that serves Italian, Mexican and Thai food. Good food at good prices.

Eating Italian and Mexican in Chiang Mai

There is some kind of play centre right next door and the noise of children yelling and screaming is cute for about 30 seconds.
