Yangon’s Best Coffee

Yangon Coffee

Myanmar produces some fine coffee, but it can be a little trickier to find a good cup of it in Yangon. Below are the best five coffees in town, according to the editors of Yangonite.

5. Bar Boon Dutch Deli and Espresso Bar: Actually, the coffee here isn’t brilliant, but it sneaks into the top five due to its location, which is great for people-watching.

4. Nervin Cafe and Bistro: Great outlook on Kandawgyi Lake and they make a respectable cup of coffee.

3. Black Canyon Coffee: The Yangon branch of this Thai chain does a good, strong coffee.

2. Acacia Tea Salon: Although known as a tea salon, the coffee at Acacia is also particularly good.

1. Cafe de Angel: They have their own coffee plantation in Shan State and know how to make a good brew. Try the “Red Eye” (an Americano plus an extra espresso shot) if you like your coffee strong.

Do we have it wrong? Which cafe do you think makes one of the best five coffees in Yangon?

    Visited Cafe de Angel on this recommendation, but sorry to say the only thing worse than the coffee was the service. I pointed both out to the ‘manager’ who just smiled lamely. I told her that the place has potential and that instead of smiling she should take my comments seriously!

    The restaurant at the Loft Hotel has a good breakfast, and has a REALLY good double latte, very strong coffee and very smooth.
