Another cafe in Udon Thani serving up a great coffee, delicious food and a VERY inviting space to chill out while you sit back and enjoy whatever you’re ordering.
If you’re not aware of this places existance, then you’ll probably never find it…unless you’re a local. It’s not on any of the common streets you might be strolling down while visiting or touring Udon Thani, and that can be a good thing. Being out of the hustle and bustle of the main city centre, they’ve been able to build this place on a good block of land that’s away from all the traffic, making it quiet, peaceful and giving it the space it needs for its large dining space, with an outdoor garden that’s clearly visibly while dining inside with it’s green/glass house style building.
The place isn’t what I’d call hidden, in fact it stands out quite well from the street, but it’s just not a main street of Udon Thani, so you won’t find it on a common stroll.
Words that came to mind when walking in to this place were light, airy, spacious, organic, healthy, bliss….it’s really welcoming! Features that make this place so…well all those words I just mentioned…are the large glass windows/walls that allow you see out into the garden and greenery, giving it that greenhouse feel. There’s a large indoor area designed to seat at least 30 people and the all the tables are nicely spaced out. Outside there’s a terrace/patio that runs around the cafe with a few tables and chairs should you choose to sit out in the garden area.
I started my morning with a coffee…first things first! I had no expectations on this place, as I literally came across it while searching for another cafe (which I’m still yet to find), and after riding around blocks and blocks, I still couldn’t find it, and then I passed this place. So I had no idea what the quality of coffee or food was like, I’d read no reviews, seen no photos, it was a complete “hit or miss” type moment.
The menu looked pretty impressive, there was a good selection of coffee’s and teas to choose from, so that was positive, and then a heap of food options as well if I was feeling hungry after. The menu has a good selection of Thai dishes available, and a few options for those looking for a western Breakfast. The owner and staff were friendly enough to let me taste test a fish and chips option they will be adding to the menu soon as well (you can see in photos below)….and WOW…that’s something to wait for! The fish batter was so airy/fluffy/pillowy (whatever you call it, but you know what I mean)…but from what I tasted, it’s definitely worthy of being on the menu!
Prices were really good – around 100 baht for a quality phad krapow with a fried egg.
My girfriend and I have been here a few times now, at least once a week we visit here, so we’ve tried a few things on their menu now including
- Pinacolada Mocktail
- Phad Krapow (Chicken and Pork)
- Tom Yum Khung
- Fish and Chips (sampler)
Without writing too many paragraphs more on this place – here’s what I love about T-Time Cafe in short.

- Outdoor garden and hanging plants that give it that organic oasis feel
