Following the good advice from a friend, we went to this cafe! But what a disappointment: waiters and waitresses didn't pay attention at all and were playing on their mobile phones. There were totally unfriendly and were not smiling! It's a shame for this place since the food is pretty good! Unfortunately I would not recommend this place because of... More

The ice milk coffee taken without sugar was delightful. The chocolate croissant was also lovely. It had just the right ratio and just felt very fresh and made with experience.

Craving some bread, croissants or pastry in Laos? Seriously go here, the baking is to die for. The baguettes are simply amazing and the combinations of sandwiches and salads are truly fantastic. The coffee is pretty good too, but the bread is the star for me! This place is like Paris. I go here all the time and the bread... More

We came here several times during our stay, either to eat or simply grab one of there delicious french baguette. The breakfasts are good, salads and sandwiches are excellent. It is a bit expensive for Luang Prabang, but is worth it!

Try the baguette sandwiches, or get one to go. They are chewy and tough and my favorite meal in Luang Prabang. The pastries are pretty good too, but the baguettes are the star. The homemade ice-cream is also worth a go, and the coffee's pretty good. In all, a must-visit in LP

I had a surprisingly delicious baguette here while my friend had the club sandwich--all very filling and nourishing, complemented nicely by a fresh side salad. The dessert was the highlight as they had an array of crepes, not to mention homemade icecream as a topping. Definitely worth a meal here.

I would have gone to this place every day if I stayed longer in LP. Great food with fresh sandwiches, quiches, and pastries. Really delicious and friend service. For good french pastry in South East asia, I found the prices quite reasonable.

Stopped in for a quick lunch on a blistering hot day. Club sandwich was very adequate and served with a small side salad with a delicious dressing. I would have preferred thinner slices of bread to the "Texas toast"-like bread. Partner had a lovely tartine (half order) and it came with the same salad. We shared a lovely pastry. Everything...

We had a club sandwich, which was OK, not special, and an open faced ham/béchamel with sliced potatoes(?), also OK, not special, two lemonades and a pastry for the unbelievable - by local standards - price of US $20.00. Go for the croissants, consider the prices.
