Used to be a "jewel" here in Vientiane

Arrived in Vientiane and immediately headed off to Scandinavian Bakery for a bite to eat. Rounded the corner and noticed that things had drastically changed in the appearance after patronizing it since the early nineties!!! Half or less the size of the original bakery with a Korean travel agency... read more

Just a coffee here. No seating inside downstairs, but several tables outside with a view of an inactive NamPhou Fountain. Both Joma and Cafe Sinouk-Riverside win hands down for ambience.

Cannot beat the prices or food, very good! Freshly made to order and if you go late, bargains on pastries.

Great place to relax with a cup of coffee and any one of their pastries! All were fresh and delicious! There are comfy couches and tables as well as worldly newspapers upstairs or a terrace for those who enjoy the heat. The iced coffee is delicious! The service is also really friendly!

Re-visited after ten years. Coffee was okay, but the chocolate coated doughnut was stale. My wife said the same of the cinnamon roll. There are definitely better places to have coffee.

My friend told me to go here when I came. I decided to go for lunch. I ordered cheese burger and chocolate milk shake. Milk shake is good but burger just ok to eat. Bread did not softy. If base on bakery cafe at Vientiane, you should go for once.

This is a Bakery that for many years was the place to go for breakfast to meet friends in Vientiane. The old French fountain, sidewalk tables and great food. The food is still good and the service excellent.But the fountains has been rebuilt into a commercial attraction and the major part on the bakery is now a travel agency.

I watched numerous other customers have to clear tables in order to be able to sit at a clean table. Plus points - wifi was... More

Located in a quiet corner in a busy part of the town. Good food, reasonable prices, a big choice and nice staff. Mostly pastry and a small choice of hot dishes and open sandwiches.Run by swedes and has a small filial in Luang prabang. I always visit it. Recommended
