Simple but nice snacks and salads

Visited this cafe which was close to our hotel. Had salad and panini for lunch. Refreshing and very nice. The staff were friendly and made sure we are okay. I like this cafe, good for a quick, simple nice meal. I would have loved to try the pastries, they look really good.

A lot of people dropping by to grab some bread/croissants. I had a lovely toasted sandwich with grilled chicken and vegetables. Large portion served with a side salad. Nice quiet location and great coffee!

A great place to have coffee, snacks and something sweet. I love their baguette. They are as good as what one would get from a very good bakery in Paris. It is located on the main road near five important temples so if you are 'templed out' this is a great place to relax over a coffee, a cake or... More

I fell like in a coffee in my hometown. The quality of the food is excellent of course its more expensive than a standard breakfast but its still affordable and it worths every Kip.

I stayed in Luang Prabang for almost two months, and my go-to for french bread, chocolate croissant, and especially the almond croissant! A cheap 2$ for eggs and baguette. Fair prices. Coffee is delicious! Pretty much everyone who has stayed here long, knows of this place and the goodies. Staff are polite and service is quick. Nice place to chill... More

We went to this place twice while in Luang Prabang and the food is excellent. I had a croque monsieur both times which was delicious and my girlfriend had a salad which she loved (particularly the French dressing). However, the downside is that the staff at this place are fairly moody and make you feel like you're getting in their... More

Been for lunch and breakfast. The baguettes are so good as are the croissants. Good coffee and lemon presse. Varied menu with food for veggies. Be back in Luang Prebang in a few months and will head back here for breakfast, lunch and anything else I can fit in.

Went twice for lunch - really good baquettes and lots of good fillings. Their lemon iced tea (with no sugar) is super refreshing. A couple of tables on the sidewalk for good people watching.

A hot afternoon and needed a bite to eat and a cool drink. Had read reviews of Le Banneton and called in to see if it lived up to expectations, which it did. The french pastries were dekicious and the service friendly and quite quick considering they were very busy. We returned a couple of times and found that we... More

Do they have the best croissant in town? May be! Do they have the friendliest service in town. Probably not but not that bad. Do they really have that nice reminiscent of a Parisian cafe. Sure! Do they really have something that draws you back again and again? Yes. Some sort. I like having a cup of Americano here especially... More
