I took this shot at a lovely little restaurant in Chiang Mai’s old city, “Angels”. I was introduced to the restaurant by a friend, just a few days before I was leaving. I absolutely loved the place. Run a Thai lady by the name of Joe, with angel wings tattooed on her back!, meals are individually prepared and everything is delicious!(I will post the address when I find it.)

I absolutely loved how the coffee is served; including the tea cup with the tea bud (yes, that is a tea bud) 🙂

  1. Just enjoying your pic and my own special brew of coffee. But my post is for Michael – Fish River Canyon.

  2. Way too many sweets for me but, I do love the photo !

  3. The cookies look pretty tasty too!

  4. Looking very appetizing with a nice presentation

  5. That looks really nice. I’d bet that the tea would go a great job of clensing your palate before enyoing your coffee. One of the more fancy coffee houses I go to gives you spraking water for that.

  6. Looks a very appealing little breakfast that. Hooray for getting a sponsor! Leave me out of the draw, though – as I’ve already bought Bethany’s book. It’s excellent and so useful; someone will be very lucky to win it!

  7. I love everything about this photo…but especially the brightness of the pastel colours. I can imagine those cups and trays in my Kitchen!

    • Yes, I was thinking the same thing. Everything goes together so nicely.

  8. Comforting image… love it!

  9. Seems like a great friend to reccommend such a lovely place!

  10. Just stumbled upon this place! So excited to have found it. I can use it as an excuse to infuse my blog with some travel talk every week. And that tea looks scrumptious!

  11. Looks like a lovely way to start the day.

  12. Nice photo. I love starting my day with a coffee or tea and in your case … both!

    Congrats on securing a sponsor and making the event even more fun. 🙂

  13. It really is beautifully presented. The cookies look delicious. I’m always interested in how tea is served and brewed around the world.

  14. That tea looks way too good and thick – almost like café con leche 😀 yum! *goes grab a cup herself*

  15. These cookies look delicious! I almost posted a food-related pic today as way, but I’m not quite done with my Eating Well in London post, so I decided on a Union Jack cab instead. We saw them driving through London when we did some sightseeing there this summer and I thought they were too cool.

  16. Great photo with fantastic colours. I’m ready for a coffee though my at home presentation isn’t nearly as beautiful.
    I reviewed Bethany’s book and HIGHLY recommend it. It will make you excite to get your camera out and start playing.

  17. I love those crystal clear colors. I take pictures of restaurant food all the time–sometimes to the embarrassment of my husband. My picture today is about playing dress up in Nova Scotia.

  18. I love the way some people can make a cup of coffee so pretty! Those cookies are too cute to eat.

    I hope I win because after my recent trip I have decided I need to be a better photographer and get out of Auto! Thanks for doing this.

  19. Great photo. It all looks so inviting. I like the name of the restaurant very much, too!

  20. Another fun photo – like Vera Marie, I also take ‘food photos’ so really appreciate one like this that is so artistically done.
    My photo today is of a single building – sometimes one building brings back as many memories as does a landscape.

  21. Great photo of your morning coffee and tea! You got the lighting perfect.

  22. Love the photo: the cookies look sooo delicious! 🙂

  23. That looks like a perfect cup of coffee! And those little cookies — yum! (I ran out of time this week so my travel photo for today is a carry-over from mine from yesterday.)

    • Those cookies were good!

  24. Congrats on the sponsor! Love Bethany’s stuff.

    • Thanks, and yes Bethany’s work is fantastic!
