Try the fruit pancakes...delicious! Ginny Cafe is located on a busy street, so people watching can be fun while you're eating. The other dishes looked good, but I have only had pancakes.

Enjoyed speaking with Ginny after our meal. We heard the khao soi here is great, but we arrived late and they had run out. The green curry and pad kra pray we are instead we're delicious, and we had the front patio all to ourselves!

The English Breakfast here is what dreams are made of. You need bacon and bread to soak up that hangover after a night at Zoes.

We visited here from the hotel next door, Bodhi Serene, we were both really tired after a day of sightseeing, so wanted local, quick, clean, tasty, cheap! We walked past it, assuming it was closed and then realised that there was a girl outside so asked it she were open, and I think they opened just for us!? I ordered... More

Saw your review (sorry for the delay). We have been in transition the past two months while developing our new restaurant in Mae Rim (Pansawan Boutique). Apologies for the temporary lull but glad you enjoyed the khao soy. New staff coming in very soon, hope to see you again =) More

We called in to Ginny Cafe as it was close to our accommodation. The husband and wife team were good to chat to. I had the khao soi, which I enjoyed, but had many others in Chiang Mai that rated better. Nice night.

We were staying next door so Ginnys was the obvious choice for breakfast. Got a little table for four right on the street and proceeded to people watch while perusing the menu. We opted for the Khao Soi which was superb. You can request the level heat you want. I like hot so a little bowl of fresh chilli accompanied... More

We didn't stay or even eat here and yet Ian and his wonderful wife were willing to help us out with detailed directions/information about travel to/from Doi Inthanon! So kind, patient, & wonderful! Wish we would have had the time to eat or stay here! Incredible people! Stop in and visit!

We come to Chiang Mai every summer and we always stop in at Ginny Cafe for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Their food is delicious, fresh and affordable. Try the Khao Soi, it's the best in Chiang Mai. We stay down the street and we eat at least one meal a day at the cafe. The owner is so friendly!

The owner is very nice and accommodating. Pricing is reasonable and portions are average. They open around 8am. You can order western or Thai food and each dish is made to order so you may need to wait, but its well worth it. I ordered the fried rice and it was good. We also ordered the tom yum sopu which...
