Connected to the equally beautiful Fah Lanna Spa, this coffee-shop has a rich and earthy atmosphere with Northern Thai decorative touches. Inside, you will find comfortable and large leather sofas and wooden furniture. The back of the cafe hides a quiet little patio with lush of greenery and water feature. Both spots are refreshing and relaxing! Don’t miss tasting house’s signature drink: Fah Tara Tropical (a freshly blended lemonade infused with a blend of Thai herbs) and for lunch, indulge in one of their delicious Thai dishes such as Shrimp Pad Thai (both sweet and tangy with the perfect amount of peanuts taste on top) or Chicken Khao Soi (a Lanna speciality of noodle curry soup).
