“Great little French cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

I ate here three times while in Luang Prabang and it was always great. Food was well prepared and presented, and very tasty. excellent coffee too. I watched as deliveries of fresh eggs, milk, etc. were made. Service was excellent. Not too expensive. Great French colonial atmosphere, for example, each table had a vintage wrought iron lamp, I'll visit again!

“A true gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

I am actually sitting in the cafe as I write this review. We stopped here for a late breakfast and nearly three hours later I am still here. The pastries and cakes are delicious. I had a croissant with ham and cheese, followed by a tarte au citron (a calories overload perhaps) but they were both delicious and full or real butter, which after months in Asia was a real treat. The also serve real coffee, not the sweet stuff you usually get in Laos.

The WIFI is great, as is the fans. They even have real desks and it is very tranquil so come down with you laptop and chill out away from the heat for a while.

Totally recommend
