For 40k ann English breakfast with home made baked beans, eggs, sausage and yummy bacon followed by a fresh salad fruit and yoghurt and downed together with a barista perfect cappuccino. I also managed to wolf down a beautiful chocolate... More

A little gem with a nice menu, excellent coffee, maps and information. Easy to find near the night market. The young woman working the counter, Good, even called a guest house in Pakse for us to reserve a room. Food was delicious and beautifully presented.

I visited Lin's as I was staying in Savannakhet over the weekend. The cafe is a very welcoming place with a brilliantly diverse menu. I had a delicious homemade patê salad with a warm baguette and a wonderfully refreshing Lao ice lemon tea. The owner is so friendly and very informative! She always kept me topped up with ice cold...

A great little cafe. The waitress was so helpful with local information. Good breakfast and fruit shakes. A book swap which was useful and it's free! Go and enjoy this relaxing cafe.
