If I had to give a title to the best spot for digital nomads in the world, Chiang Mai would 100% be in contention for the top spot. This is a place packed with other remote workers, a low cost of living, a captivating culture, and an amazing food scene. It’s so easy to work here, with some of the best cafes in Chiang Mai offering a comfortable chair to top-notch coworking spots.

Having spent several months living and working in Chiang Mai, I grew to love the coffee shop vibe and preferred to go to the best coffee shops in Chiang Mai over a coworking space. It’s so easy to meet other people, be productive, and of course, enjoy the very best coffee in Chiang Mai while you’re working. I tried out many cafes during my time there and trust me, there’s no shortage.

Best Cafes and Coffee Shops in Chiang Mai

It’s very difficult to give the title of the best cafe in Chiang Mai because there are so many and they all have their own little quirks, but I rose to the challenge. In a bid to give you a selection of the best cafe working spots, I compiled my list based on the quality of coffee and food, service, location, customer reviews, and of course, my own personal experience. After plenty of deliberation, I narrowed my selection down to these ten cafes.

1. STORIES (Best Cafe in Chiang Mai Overall)

STORIES is one of the best cafes to work from in Chiang Mai, and it’s my personal favorite. I love to snack while I’m working and this place offers so many delicious things to eat, including healthy options, fantastic sandwiches, and cakes. Of course, the coffee is pretty high quality too and the menu is quite substantial.

From a working point of view, the chairs at STORIES are relatively comfortable. However, make sure you choose the chairs with the wicker back and not the regular “kitchen chairs” if you’re planning on staying a while. There are plenty of charging outlets, and I had no problem with the WiFi; I visited quite a lot, too.

This is a great cafe to beat the heat as they crank up the air-conditioning. Also, they don’t mind if you stay for a few hours, as long as you buy a proportionate amount of food/drinks for your time there.
