The Bearista is a new, nice and funny place in a quiet area of Chiang Mai suburb area. The seats are all outside, along the street, which means that it’s too noisy for Skype calls but the street is quiet enough to get some work done without too much distraction (if you don’t get distracted by big teddy bears of course!).

The seats are all low with small tables, and, although there are a couple more comfortable sofas, it’s still hard to work for long hours due to the height. The coffee is good and there are just a couple food options, all Thai and nothing to shout about.

The Wifi is free but it was disconnecting often. Even if it’s outside, there are a couple of plugs available. Overall it’s okay to work here for a couple of hours while drinking a coffee, but no more then that.
