It is a very nice place for having different type of coffee​, noodles and so many dishes. They have good place for sitting inside and outside of the cafe. Wi-Fi is available there for free, it is a nice place for breakfast lunch and dinner.

We had a decent lunch at a very affordable price there. Nice spot in the middle of town for a quick lunch. Can get busy so if hungry get there early as the place gets busy

Getting good veggies is a priority for us, so we like Benoni (the upper level for lunch is our favorite). The Greek Salad with eggplant, feta and black olives and the chicken salad are some of our favorites. They also have good quiche, sandwiches and curry.

Nice cafe but service could be better... I ate local Laos food which was very good. I also recommend ice latte which was excellent! Menu and its variety was very good but the prices a bit more than average in capital...

Minus some things being currently sold out on the menu and limited English of the staff it was very good! Clean bathrooms too which to me is a sign of a great restaurant! Had the roasted eggplant and feta baguette and it was 35,000 kip, and it was delicious! Very friendly owner! Highly recommend!
