This is a very lovely loft-style cafe in Chiang Mai town great for hanging out and enjoying a decent meal. While Padaso serves up aromatic hot and cold caffeinated brews and freshly baked cakes, the cafe’s real draw is their hearty international fare (Thai and fusion dishes are no less impeccable). And those people even grow their own organic vegetables in the garden. Their signatures include salad Padaso, revered for its freshness, tenderloin steak, spaghetti with dried chili, pork chop, and cocktail salmon shrimp. The cafe is open every day in Star Avenue 5, on Chiang Mai-Hod Road.
