Food is very delicious both of this restaurants. Mrs.Rose owns 2 Art Cafe but the one at this location is mostly visited. We love the fact the she makes her own cheese. Food is not overly price and good portions as well.

First ordered drinks, my mother ordered ginger tea with honey, there was no honey. Sister ordered ice latte and they gave her a hot one and refused when i asked to return it. My lemon honey tea was sour. This was the most expensive meal we had in Chiang Mai, i was expecting quite a lot. Staff were all talking... More

Clean and pretty air/con restaurant with good breakfast options. We ordered the American Breakfast for 150 Bt. Other items were more expensive. Choice of meat, juice, bread and jam. Coffee was freshly ground and served with warm milk. Bread was thick and hearty. Each item was correctly cooked and served. We would have given 5 stars, but the service was... More

Don't order their coffee/just weak and neatly taste like dishwater. I had them take it back. Eggs Benedict only edible and over priced. Great location.

Comfortable restaurant, good service and food is just O,K. If you miss western food and happen to be at Thapae Gate area this place is a long time Chiangmai favorite. Big menu but nothing special. I had the sausage biscuit which I have had before and it was more like vegetable gravy on a open face hamburger bun, My wife... More

The food at Art Cafe was fine, not as bad as other reviewers might suggest, but not fantastic. If in need of a bite, the food was definitely very edible and we had lunch here. Service, however, was very good and servers were extremely polite. They allowed me to wait there for my driver even after I finished my meal.

Stupid to enter the restaurant just because I was hungry. The mango/coconut lassie was delicious but the rest was horrible. Enchiladas, a sort o sticky pancake with potato filling, no spices, no herbs, a sort of hospital food but it didn't make me feel better, on the contrary. The salade was basically big chunks of lettuce with no dressing, no... More

The location on the restaurant was great but the menu had too many items. This seemed to true of many restaurants in the area. The service was good. I guess one should not come to Thailand to eat western food especially when there is plenty of good, cheap street food around. If you must have western food, this will do.

This place had a very convenient location but very average food. In my opinion it seems like they're trying to wear too many hats. Italian, American, Thai, Mexican, and others? You're just not going to do all of them well. The food wasn't bad but it certainly wasn't anything memorable. I'd check out other places in the area, there are... More
