Transit Number 8 Cafe In Chiang Mai Has A Perfect Muji Style Aesthetic & Menu
Muji-style hotels and homes are at the top of our bucket list for travel and interior design aspirations. Transit Number 8 Cafe is definitely a place you can get major inspo for your own flats.
For Singaporeans, it’s hard not to name-drop the Japanese label when thinking about their classy minimalist aesthetic. While not all of us can afford a home design overhaul yet, you could grab some inspiration from this recently opened cafe in Chiang Mai.
Transit Number 8 Cafe has nailed their welcoming zen cafe atmosphere with a Muji-style menu to boot.
Let’s take a closer look at the cafe that seems to have a close to perfect execution of Japanese design principles.
Muji-style cafe haven
Transit Number 8 is a modest and simple cafe with soothing monochrome shades, wooden furniture and artisanal decor.
The shelves are stacked with evenly-spaced coffee cups that complement the smooth panes of the stairways’ railings.
When in cafes, you impatiently wait for your espresso to be served. But you won’t notice time passing by whilst marveling at this perfectly zen set-up.
They say simplicity is beauty and we look forward to sitting at these exquisite tables to catch up with friends or having a date with bae.
Orange-spiced coffee served with wood coasters
They boast a carefully put together menu with crafted concoctions in cutlery and cups that follow a Muji-esque pale white and earthy brown colour palette.
Espresso lovers can choose from menu staples like lattes, iced cocoa and Americanos from S$2.51 (58 Baht).
You might’ve been fine with any coffee that has a shot of espresso, but give your morning coffee run a much-needed upgraded with their signature orange-spiced coffee — ‘Welcome On Board’.
This dainty Oreo cheesecake is highly-recommended as well. We undoubtedly love the cookies, but we bet you’ll be obsessed with this version which comes with a generous dollop of cream frosting for good measure.
Those who want to enjoy their vacation with a host of cocktails can opt for this pastel coloured Honey Moon Trip drink that will undoubtedly taste great with their cheesecakes.
