Brewing Room in Chiang Mai requires you to leave the trendy Nimmanhaemin neighbourhood to get to, but if you’re on the warpath to find artisan coffee in a chic setting with fast wifi, then it’ll be worth the journey. Offering imported coffee beans from all over the world and decorated in light and breezy colours, it’s the one café you must visit for a good cup of joe in Chiang Mai.
Not trying to stereotype, but being decorated thoroughly in pastel blue and pink, you would expect Brewing Room to be filled with girls, and girls only. That’s not the case. The premium coffee shop is popular with people of all sorts. Young or old, local or tourist, there’s something for everyone in the Thai population.
Brewing Room ticks all the boxes of a fine coffee shop. The space is big enough to have a small patio out front, where a vertical garden sits attractively. Inside, there is ample room for more than 20 seats and even extra space to lounge around in. Compared to the small cafés on Nimmanhaemin Road, the bright and airy environment is a refreshing delight.
To add to the cutesy pastel atmosphere of the interior, Brewing Room is decked in rounded furniture. The mirrors, tables, chairs and even the kitchen counter have curved edges and a brass finishing for a touch of elegance. And, in order to best showcase the pastel colours of the space, commonly used yellow lighting is swapped out for white, bauble-like lamps that hang from the ceiling.
Perhaps the most interesting touch to Brewing Room’s architecture, though, is the menu at the front of the shop. It’s a work of art itself, constructed of large, wooden blocks of letters slotted in between horizontal white holders – a genius idea for a café that has an everchanging menu.
Coffee lovers will be delighted to know that Brewing Room keeps things refreshed by changing their blend monthly. Come back in a few weeks, and the coffee beans your cuppa is brewed from is from a different part of the world. Those who are less adventurous can opt for permanent staples like a latte or a cappuccino instead.
If you’re not a coffee drinker, though, rest be assured that there are other options too. The Matcha Tea, for example, is so rich that it rivals coffee in terms of caffeine. For a bite, Brewing Room also offers baked treats such as cupcakes and tarts at reasonable prices.
Although located out of town centre, Brewing Room makes a great option for a quick coffee if you’re around the area. In fact, even if you’re staying somewhere else on your trip to Chiang Mai, it’s worth a tuk-tuk ride to get to. There’s fast wifi, a photogenic interior and coffee strong enough to keep you going the whole day. I mean, what more could you ask for?
