No idea what they are called but there is a green tube like cake dipped in chocolate at either end and made with marzipan which are incredibly delicious!

Went here on Lonely Planet's advice and wish I hadn't. Had a sandwich and it was pricy by Lao standards and very poor quality. The baguette was rubbery, the chicken filling bland and the service came without any kind of smile. I also felt the place wasn't as clean as it should have been. Avoid, there are better options close... More

I went to this bakery early in the morning and ordered a to go coffee and a croissant. After 15 minutes, no one had begun to make my coffee and I really had to leave for the embassy for my visa. I asked the girl working when it would be ready and she was very rude and said "yes,yes soon."... More

The food was okay but very expensive and the staff was very unfriendly. They forgot to bring us one of the lunches we'd ordered, and even after reminding them, they still didn't deliver. Would not go there again.

We've been there a few times, so we could try many different cakes, and they were all very good. I do not give the best rating because the drinks were disappointing.

i only tried one thing here: the day old chocolate muffins. They were very good! They had some fruit jelly in the them. The pastry assortment looked to be generous and the food looked alright.

I went back to the Scandinavian Bakery on my 2nd trip to Vientiane, and was disappointed this time. While the bakery items still are very good the cafe was terrible. There was no a/c considering the temp outside was 36c, and staff was slow and just plain terrible. I went upstairs when I arrived and the place was dirty, the... More
