Came back for a second time. This time rooftop restaurant was ready to use. Pen is a perfect host. Her husband speaks decent english, despite being french ;) We did not look into the menu and ordered a choice of typical Shan Food. Great experience....Delicious. Don´t be fooled by the name "Pen Coffee House". They can do every dish you would like. There are 2 other restaurants on the village road, next to Pen. And one around the corner to Tham Lot Cave. We tried all of them. Pen is number one. Although the other two were close behind. The village of Ban Tham is a real gem. The nicest people you can imagine. Unfortunately, so many day tourist from Pai just drive through. If you come here: Stay for a couple of days!More

Pen Coffee is just on the way to the Tam Lod caves and is the perfect spot for a meal. The place itself is beautifully located and you can even eat outside on the rooftop terrace! I went with my friends we ordered: massaman curry,...cheeseburger, and pad kee mao. All the dishes were excellent! Even better organic and from the garden. For dessert i had the brownie which was a real treat! I recommend thus place to all of my friends and will definitely be back! Thank you Pen and Yan!More

Delicious food, but not too much on your plate. Garden, restaurant very nice located and tasteful. Pen Coffee House is quite new. I have seen it in construction time and when it was ready. Those people who made it, must have a lot of phantasy...and masses of good taste!! You would never expect such a beautiful place in such a remote village. Unfortunately most Pai-day-tourists drive by and don´t stay over night in Ban Tham. Pen is also offering 3 or 4 tasteful bungalows in a very big and quiet garden. Bungalows with a lot of space between. Good choice to stay at "Pen´s Homestay"! Tough choice in Ban Tham: Pen´s homestay or Cave Lodge. I like both.More

We stopped here for dinner on our visit to Phag MaPha... The place is really cool inside with huge rocks and nice decore. The owners are super nice and very good at service. The is quite good. Ingredients are super fresh as seasoning authentic. Portions...could be larger but it's tasty. Possibly the only rooftop dining in town!More
