We enjoyed a chilled out late lunch here. All the items were fresh and flavorful, particularly the Burmese tea leaf salad which had a fantastic combination of tastes and textures. The café limits laptop use to 30 minutes. I am in full support of this...More

I popped in to Freebird for a mid morning snack as I'd heard good things about the brownie. I wasn't disappointed! The brownie was warm, moist and gooey and really delicious. I had a coffee with it which I didn't really enjoy but I went...More

Went there for lunch. After i had finished eating, i took out my computer to do some work. After maybe 20 minutes, the owner approached and told me there is a limit of 30 minutes for computer work. This strikes me as an absurd rule....More

Just found out about this place on my last day in Chiang Mai and I'm actually glad for it, otherwise I would end up spending all my money there! Food may not be the cheapest in Chiang Mai, but all the profit they make, goes...More

I’ve been here multiple times and I’m still planning to go there once more before I leave Chiang Mai. I love all that they stand for, with 100% of profits going towards the Burnese Refugees and the training centre. I love how they pay their...More

Our beautiful location is on the North side of the moat that surrounds the quaint "old city" of Chiang Mai. It is a perfect place to sit, enjoy the breeze, sunlight and people watching on the main road.The interior is attractive, colorful and bright with our student's art work and long share tables to encourage customers to sit together and make new friends or private tables and a small sofa in the kids corner where there are plenty of books, toys and art supplies to keep the kids happy while parents enjoy their healthy vegetarian or vegan western or local style breakfast, lunch, smoothies or coffee and dessert.We serve many Burmese and ethnic foods that you can't get anywhere else so it is fun to try something new! We also have a fun and funky little Pre-Loved Charity Shop in the cafe where you can not only donate your old clothing, household items, books and more but purchase goods and support our charity at the same time. We have loads of English language novels, travel guides, hats, shoes, scarves, jewelry, men's and women's clothing and more. We also sell organic spirulina, triphala and natural skin care products from local vendors.Please come and check us out today! You can park cars, motorbikes and bicycles along the side of the building.
