My wife and I went here for coffee last week.I had a latte and a piece of cinnamon cake.BOTH WERE TERRIBLE.If it's correct that they are training girls here to move on to a job they are doing a terrible job.There was a girl who seemed to be in charge and I told her what I thought of the offerings...

Can't stay away from this place. It's comfortable, solid air con on the hot days. Indoor and outdoor dinning. Safe are friendly and eager to please. Great for groups, lots of space and the value and quality across the menu is tops. You may find you prefer a particular item elsewhere, but I don't know anywhere in central Chiang Rai... More

We were a little wary as the place was pretty deserted but the food was very good and the staff friendly albeit with pretty limited English. The Thai soups were particularly delicious

We wanted to visit Destiny cafe because of the amazing work they do rescuing children from prostitution. What we didn't expect was the exceptional level of service, food and drinks. We've been in northern Thailand for most of the year and the penang curry and satay chicken were delicious. Far above most we've had, and not too westernised.

This is one of the nice places to eat in air conditioned comfort. The food is great, The Big Breakfast was nicely cooked to perfection. It is hard realise you are on a busy street. They have great service, nice coffee and a range of teas, and cakes. This is a great place to eat when you want to chill... More

A very comfy and cozy place, the front section is more for coffee with many sofa sitting. The place is very clean and service is friendly but a bit slow on serving the food. Food presentation is pretty impressive. The iced Mocha is tasty but slightly on the sweeter side. The chicken wrap is delicious with sesame and sunflower seeds.... More

I stumbled upon this great restaurant after passing it several times on the way to the clock tower light show. I had several Thai dishes after the 7 PM show and the food is outstanding. I read about the Destiny mission and became even more impressed. I would have liked to try breakfast there which I'll do next time!

It is great when you get to enjoy something while helping a cause. The destiny cafe in Chiang Rai is on if those places. Great coffee, friendly and attentive staff, and lovely food. Add to that the fact that some of the staff, not sure it is all, are victims of trafficking. Got to be worth your support.
