Green O’ Clock
“When your eye is in pain, you need to gaze upon the tree. Why?” This is the rather enigmatic slogan for this eccentric little cafe, guesthouse and art gallery, which looks like something that you’d find in the heart of backpacking Pai but just so happens to be conveniently located just one soi away from our new office. Green O’Clock serves up lovely coffees and teas, baked goods and a selection of Thai and Western dishes. We particularly enjoyed the sweet and fluffy green tea tiramisu. The setting is rustic but cute, and you can dine inside the pint-sized shop, out in the garden or under the covered patio, which features a small gallery that resembles a quirky outdoor classroom. Looking to spend a peaceful night on the cheap, but away from the Old City backpackers’ ghetto? Green O’Clock’s simple guesthouse offers basic bamboo huts for just 550 baht per night.
