Drinking in Chiang Mai is a must, whether it be cold bubble tea in the morning, hot coffees to stay awake after a big lunch or a lazy Sunday brunch with bloody Marys.
A lovely coffee shop just off Kaew Nawarat Road, Marocchino is decorated in a minimalist loft style with ornamental plants giving you a warm and airy atmosphere. Enjoy your coffee in a private corner indoors or sit outdoors with a large group of friends. The signature coffees are their hot latte with fun cartoon art, and the Marocchino, shot of espresso, cocoa powder and milk froth. The hot coffee is made with 100% Arabica, and they also serve up other drinks and homemade cakes. Don’t miss the “Le Mar de Choux Creme”, which comes in two flavours, Madagascan vanilla and Belgium chocolate. In October, buy 3 cakes and get 1 free and there is a 10% discount off all drinks.
Open 7.30am – 5.30pm (closed every Thursday on the 2nd week and 3rd week of each month)

Buy eight get one free when you grab the delicious Chakuma bubble tea that has finally made its way to Chiang Mai! This franchise bubble tea shop, found across the country, has now been opened by Kad, who as an avid bubble tea fan, searched for the best and wanted to share it with we city dwellers. Just off Kaew Narawat Road (the same soi as the Citylife office), the bubble tea shop is open daily serving up a range of tea fusions such as the yogurt bubble tea, Taiwanese tea, banana tea and coco tea. But with over 37 flavours to choose from and extra jellies or puddings added for just five or ten baht, it’s a steal. Stop by to grab a copy of Citylife or Spoon&Fork and have a leisurely read with some bubbly sweetness.

Le Méridien’s Sunday Brunch
Sunday bloody Sunday is no longer just a song about a horrific day in recent history. It is Le Méridien’s super special Sunday brunch which now comes with a free-flow bloody Mary station! Let’s get the food out of the way; its superb. Cheeses, coldcuts and patés, pastas, roast lamb and beef, Alaskan king crabs, gravlax, oysters, salad bar…the list goes on, and don’t get us started on one of the most decadent and delicious desserts stations to be found in the city. But if you too like a good bloody Mary, then this is the place to go. Bacon or herb infused vodka as well as plain vodka can be picked to go with up to 20 condiments, so you can custom order your very own bloody Mary to taste. A great way to while away a Sunday afternoon with some good friends.
