Best Coffee Pai: Espresso Bar
When it comes to finding the best coffee – a picture tells a million words.
Espresso Bar has the best coffee in Pai – and possibly the best coffee we’ve tried in Thailand.
Conveniently located on Walking Street this cute coffee shop has the best coffee in Pai.
They have a great full-size espresso machine and the owner really knows how to heat the milk for a great latte.
- Latte: 70 Baht
- Good Wifi (15Mbps download; 8Mbps Upload; 41 Ping)
- Low chairs for lazing or floor mats – comfortable but maybe not the most productive!
- Chilled atmosphere – great for people watching
Hours: 12 noon – 10pm

Best Cafe for work: Khaotha Coffee
Located 2 minutes drive from Walking Street in a new area of town, Khaotha is a funking cafe popular with locals and digital nomads.
It’s one of Pai’s best cafes with wifi (which works really well), there is plenty of seats (and tables) to work and it has (in our opinion) the second best coffee in Pai.
Oh, and it is huge and very hipster. Overall, a great faux co-working space – definitely one of the best cafes for working in Pai .
- Latte: 45 Baht
- Good wifi (13Mbps download; 27Mbps Upload; 17 Ping)
- Super cool – and instagrammable – setting
- A great work cafe
- Nice music
- Popular with locals – always a good sign

Hipster Cafe: Witching Well
Our coffee was good but not raveable. Would go back to Witching Well only a super hot day because it is one of the few cafes in Pai with air-conditioning.
As our accommodation in Pai offered us breakfast we didn’t need to double-dip. We got the vibe that ordering only coffees wasn’t cool which we maybe would have understood if the place was packed which it wasn’t.
- Latte: 65 Baht
- Nice outside area when shaded in the morning
- Air-con for hot days
- Good wifi (33 Mbps download; 6 Mbps upload; 31 ping)
- Breakfast 100 – 140 Baht
- Surly if you don’t order breakfast
