Another one of my coffee favourites in Udon Thani, although I probably have to link this place to Good Days Cafe, as I believe it’s owned by the same people. As I just went to add a link to “The Good Days Cafe”, I realised I don’t have a post for this one yet….what the?!?!?! That will be the next one coming up, as these guys are truely towards the top of my list for both food and coffee. Anyway…back to UD Coffee Bar.
So if you’ve seen my facebook posts on Good Days Cafe (which there’s been quite a few), they have a signature coffee (or cappuccino). It’s a white mug, on a wooden plate/board, with a glass of water, and their small little brownie that comes with every coffee. Anyway, I haven’t seen this anywhere else…except here…and it’s EXACTLY the same!
Anyway, perhaps it was coincidence, but I’d say it’s all under the same umbrella, but either way, I wasn’t fussed, the coffee was awesome, well priced, so there was nothing to complain about. It wasn’t until a few visits later that I saw the owner of Good Days Cafe walk in to talk to some of the staff here at UD Coffee Bar when I was now almost certain it was the same owner/management. But this doesn’t mean you get same experience, infact quite different.
UD Coffee Bar is well out of the main city and touristy area, and it doesn’t focus on food as much as Good Days Cafe. It’s in a much quieter street, and you won’t find it full of tourists like you will Good Days Cafe (not that that’s a bad thing…just sayin). So you get a more local feel when you’re in this place, and there’s a lot more greenery around too…some nice gardens to look out into, or even have sit in, which you don’t get in the Good Days Cafe. So for me, there’s a time for this place, and ONLY this place…as it has it’s own unique vibe and culture to it, and definitely different to most of the other cafe’s around town.
The other good thing being out of the main touristy means cheaper rent, therefor cheaper prices…so you’ll pay less when having a drink or a bite to eat at these places…well most of the time.
I don’t come here for food, so I can’t comment on that yet, but there are a few food options here if your stomache is grumbling.
If you’re looking for a coffee somewhere that’s a little less touristy, something with a peaceful vibe and surrounding (greenery / gardens), then definitely check out this place…the photos I took aren’t that good for this place and don’t do it justice…so you’ll just have to pay a visit to get the real picture.
What are the prices like?
Around ฿50 for a cappucino…nuff said right?
Where are they located?
97/9 Phon Phisai, Mak Khaeng Subdistrict, Mueang Udon Thani District, Udon Thani 41000.
It’s not on any main street you’d pass by if you’re visiting Udon Thani, and what makes this place different from the others…it’s more local, peaceful and quiet..the kinda place you can sit back and just chill for an hour or so without being smothered by other passer by’ers.
