Win, win - great coffee and croissants, pastries and cakes plus any profit goes to actively supporting vulnerable children. What is not to love?

Rates as one of the best coffee shops at the time we were disappointed to have terrible cappuccinos and very limited selection of cakes. Pricey for lousy bitter coffee and very little cappuccino froth.

The food is good, the coffee and service very good and the charitable work outstanding. We went back the next day for a couple of take out sandwiches to eat on our bus journey to Chiang Mai.

Great place, delicious food and best coffee in town. The bakery is owned by a foundation. 100% of the bakery profits go to their orphanage, south of Chiang Rai. It's a must go!

THIS bakery really does have the feel good factor. Not only is it a quality place for a break if you have just come off the Green Bus from Chiang Mai but it is also a charity supporter. The business is owned by the BCM...More

Description
We bake bread, cakes and food in a Scandinavian/Thai way. Our bakery is located near the central bus station in the middle of Chiang Rai. Here you will find breads and cakes baked the Scandinavian way. The bakery is frequented by both locals and foreign visitors. Today, there is also the opportunity to eat delicious Thai and western food in a warm and peaceful environment. In the late 1990s we began baking cinnamon buns to sell on the main road. This turned out to be a pretty good business idea. Dreams of a café located in the city began to take shape. In 2001 two of our oldest girls were given the opportunity to be trained as pastry chefs at Peder Printer Patisserie School in Varberg, Sweden. In 2002 we found a location in the heart of ChiangRai where we began offering Swedish coffee. By 2005 the business had expanded to include food service. BaanChivitMai Bakery has a permanent staff of cooks, bakers and servers. During weekends and school breaks, the older children at BCM have the opportunity to work there where they receive on-the-job training as well as the ability to earn some pocket money. BCM Bakery also serves as a vital source of information about BaanChivitMai Foundation. Customers who visit the café can read about and look at pictures of BCM's various activities. All profits from the bakery go back to the Foundation to save children from vulnerable situations and give them a better future. The café’s offerings of cinnamon buns, marzipan pastries, chocolate balls and cakes in the Scandinavian style have become quite popular in Chiang Rai. More recently BCM Bakery has begun offering some very tasty Thai food while continuing to serve more traditional items like Swedish meatballs with lingonberries and other western dishes.
