“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Excellent selection went a couple of times for desert and once for a meal. Charming staff. Tables outside and a real buzzy atmosphere. Part of the group which owns L'elephant restaurant but more reasonable with big menu.

“Peaceful spot for that lazy coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

This is one of the best cafe's in Luang Prabang in our opinion.Situated at the quiet end of the Main Street,and opposite the primary school,it's open seating plan which spills onto the pavement is reminiscent of earlier French days with dark Laoation wood panelling and old French posters.Very good coffee and excellent cakes which were a real treat after eating so much rice every day.It' s so relaxed and it is not difficult to lose track of time.Highly recommended.

“A good cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Had a light lunch here and enjoyed it.
A crisp green salad with watercress, French fries and a edam baguette. The salad was crisp and fresh, the baguette was the same. The fries came with Salad and we're great.
The lemon soda was a refreshing mix of salt and sweet.
Free wifi completes a pleasant experience.

“Nice little ambience.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Went for drinks, and to hang out. Didn't try the food, but it's a cute little setup with old desks. Lao lao sour was delicious!
