Happened across this by accident but was a wonderful surprise. Delicious coffee and danishes with a lovely relaxed setting

Bought a slice of pie and danish today. Charged full price and paid. Given a cake instead of a meat pie. Noticed and returned an hour later. Staff don't care. Checked the receipt spool on the electronic till. They lady never run up the purchase because she plan to steal the money. Then proceeded to charge me extra money for... More

Went there for lunch and to escape the heat of midday. Sandwiches are huge and good, banana cake and bagels are also fine. Quite pricey and coffee not so good.

Good internet, a lot of people spend their time there because of that. Hearty albeit VERY bread based breakfasts (if you don`t choose the salads etc. that are served every day) and very home-sickness-curing delectable Swedish special pastries and cakes. Otherwise the bread in it self is ordinary but good, although the friday bread is always finsihed off very fast... More

For the food there is no complaining here. The baguettes are fantastic and really big portions so excellent value for money. Delicious coffee and home made cakes. I especially recommend the apple cake which was my favourite.The only downside about this place is it looks a bit rundown from the inside. Looks a bit like a common room from school.... More

the bakery is ok, but I would not go out of my way. the "cream" on the baked goods is strange and does not taste like real cream, at least what you get in the US or Europe. Maybe it's whipped too much. Anyway, the coffee is good, pastries ok, service indifferent

Came here based on lonely planet review. Food is expensive, but happy to pay if you are getting good food and service. Food is fine. Staff severely lacking in charm or politeness. Real shame.

The pastries were stodgy, bready, and not crisp enough (if at all). I doubt they were fresh even though we came in the morning. Staff seemed confused about what we wanted. We were also charged extra 1000kip each to dine in, which was not signposted. On the plus side, the A/C is good and the wifi seems to be holding... More

The fare was okay and the pastries and portions were generous. The washroom was clean but the airconditioning was a little warm.

Wow. This place is great! Their service is good and the food taste incredible. We ordered three different sandwiches for our family. The kid each. The meat and toppings were very fresh. From reading other reviews, I would say that the feel others are getting from the staff would seem to be a cultural thing. We sat outside and enjoyed... More
