Smoothies and sandwiches in veggie Cafe, Chiang Mai
Juicy 4 U Cafe is a rival to the Dada Cafe across the road (and apparently started by one of the employees from that establishment (this is scandalous rumour so I won't mention it further...)
They offer a selection of fresh juices and smoothies as well as an extensive range of sandwiches for which you can pick the fillings ,and other healthy (and not so healthy) dishes. It offers vegetarian fare, both Thai and Western and the food is fresh and filling.
When we were there they had an incredibly hyperactive and frankly mental kitten running around and banging its head into things. They had some toys you could amuse it with but it may have grown out of the "insane" stage by now.
The staff are friendly and attentive, and it is only the location in comparison to where I stay that has prevented me visiting more often.
It was also the first place I encountered the interesting "jar of rice with worms living in it on the counter" which is a Chinese good luck sign in Thailand.
Hi Ian, I don't know if I'm somehow being a total idiot, but my boyfriend and I have been in Chiangmai for 2 days and have tried to find Juicy4U both days, with no luck! Google maps seems pretty clear where it is - just round the corner from a school? - but when we get there it just looks like a big compound! The locals don't seem to have heard of it either. Can you help us out please?! Thanks, Charlotte
It's not that difficult..! If you go to Thapae Gate, inside the moat, and go North (right if you are looking at the gate and past the Black Canyon Coffee) it is maybe 4 sois along on the right hand side. The road with The Corner cafe is the one you need to go up and I think you can see it from the junction... good luck!
