Fern Forest Café: Chiang Mai
Fern Forest Cafe was the first breakfast place we stumbled upon in Chiang Mai and we just keep going back. We were actually looking for (and not finding) another restaurant when we saw the sign for Fern Forest with an arrow pointing down a side road. We decided to give it a shot, and it has quickly become one of our favorite spots to work and enjoy a leisurely breakfast.
The seating is all outdoors and as you may have guessed, there is a forest of ferns with a small waterfall along the edge. The patio seating is comfortable and well-shaded. There are a couple well-positioned fans as well, making it cool even on hotter days. We love working in the fresh air with the sound of rushing water and birds in the background.
So far, we have enjoyed several breakfast options and sandwiches, and we are never disappointed. The menu is not extensive, but there is an indication on their menu that they are working to add more options. Fern Forest also has a sizeable selection of baked goods that we have not tried, but we are often tempted by the case of cakes and cookies by the register.
