Breakfast and mexican food

Very Nice restaurant were you can enyoy mexican food and breakfast western style. Also good for a cup of coffee. Worth a visit if your fed up with asian food. Most dishes between 25000 and 35000 kip.

The food is sandwiches and Mexican food. The food is great but kind of expensive. You can bring along your kids here, they can play in the indoor playground in the back of this restaurant. But the playground is open shed. it is too hot here during hot season.

My hotel was nearby and I wanted to check this place out considering the rave reviews it is getting on Tripadvisor. The breakfast set I ordered was simple : 2 toasts, butter (so cold it wouldn't spread), jam 2 eggs and 2 slices of bacon. I found the food underwhelming. Coffee (not included in the set) was okay. Patchy Wi-Fi.... More

This was a great find. The food, service and for us the cost were all excellent. It is cool (oh, on a hot day you will really appreciate that), the food was more than worth what they charge, the staff were very friendly, and it is a really nice place to either visit with friends or enjoy a meal with...

Good coffee and pastries! In fact, for those of you who know your coffee, you know that Lao coffee is among the best in the entire world! I like to buy lots when I am here to give as gifts to people in Thailand and the US.

Eaten here a few times and the food is ok. The staff do not speak any English and seem bored and rude at times. When you go to a cafe/restaurant and ask for a menu in Lao and then English twice and just get a vacant stare it kind of puts you off a place. There are plenty of other... More

What a wonderful little place to sit, read, talk, work or surf: Common Grounds provides a common ground for all kinds of people. We came after walking throughout much of Vientiane. Someone told us about the place. They were right - it's a great place to relax. We saw people of various ages from young to old in it. The... More
