I must say I was disappointed when I ordered the mozzarella tomatoe baguette sandwich ,the quality of the ingredients and the bread were not good and at London prices ! Further up the road is another French cafe(opposite the famous Wat) which is far better and regularly patronized by the local expat community.

Our eighth visit to Luang Prabang and we're back at Le Cafe Ban Vat Sene yet again. As I write I'm having a breakfast and the net is working well. I can catch up with emails from home while enjoying a beautifully cooked breakfast, and it's very affordable. We've also enjoyed lunch and dinner here many times and we're never... More

Had a great Americano coffee in the morning ( and one of the cheapest ) with great service so decided to try it for our last lunch before leaving Luang Prabang.

The café also has wifi and friendly staff, as well as a variety of recent newspapers from Laos and abroad. The food and drink is of... More

We grabbed a table to wait. At 6:45 we checked again and still nothing. At 6:50 they brought us a menu. We had already... More
