For a fairly small town, Surin has an usually large selection of cafes. The following are just a small selection, but we’ll add to this list the next time we visit Surin. If you’re planning to visit Surin, click here to book a room at Maneerote Hotel.
Cafe Duck is our favorite cafe in Surin. It’s a locally owned chain of cafes that now has branches all around Isaan (northeast Thailand). We know of five branches in Surin, with the one on Krungsri Nork being our favorite. It’s a small cafe that has an aircon room and also an open section to the shop.
Cafe Duck is one of the few places that also serves a green tea chaser with the coffee. An American costs just 30 baht ($1).

Kaffe Italia is another favorite of ours, and we’ve been visiting this place for many years.
What we love about this place, apart from the coffee, is the outside seating area. It’s shaded from the sun, has ceiling fans, and is also surrounded by lots of trees and bushes. It’s a quite relaxing atmosphere.
If you need aircon, you’ll be glad to know that there is plenty of indoor seating as well. Like a few places in Surin, Kaffe Italia gives you a tea chaser with your coffee.

Kid Teung Bakery & Cafe
This is a great cafe and bakery that’s pretty popular. Most seating used to be in a covered outdoor area, but this has recently been enlarged and renovated, and is now enclosed and includes aircon.
Kid Teung is right next to the new Elephant Knowledge Park that is due to open soon. You can see part of it in the background. As well as an elephant museum, there will also be a small shopping mall and boutique hotel.
If you leave the train station, walk straight ahead and then turn left into Thanon Sanit Nikomrut, you’ll see Kid Teung on your right. Just look for the elephants at the entrance.
