Really nice cafe almost at the riverfront. I’m not a coffee man, but my friend really recommended the coffee so I bought some as a souvenir. It has been produced by small Lao farms. Food was tasty and staff friendly. Would go again!

We visited several times during our stay in LP and it was great - good coffee, great meals and ana amzing view! Skip the crowds during sunset on top of the hill with the temple and just come here. You will most likely be alone...and the view is breathtaking!More

I specifically came here to buy lots of coffee as I had been drinking their excellent brew at my accommodation.They have a good range of coffees for sale but there was no one there I could discuss the brews in English. Secondly I would have...been more than willy to pay for a sampling menus of different coffees. I bought a number of different blends but would have bought more if I could have tried someMore

We headed to Saffron coffee early (6 a.m. opening) before our hotel breakfast opened. Coffee is nice (many drink options available) and also enjoyed the oat peanut butter loaf (warmed up). No comfortable seating, But does have a garden area where you can relax. Reasonable...pricesMore

Walked past and saw friendly smiling faces so came back another day and tried their breakfast set. Delicious food, love their coffee pudding. Service was mediocre - perhaps because it was hectic when I was there. You can sit at the cafe to people watch...or go upstairs or sit by the river. Ok but I wouldn't go there specially as it is very crowded at times and there are other cafes around.More

Absolutely delicious! This is a must visit spot in Luang Prabang for a coffee buzz. We stopped here almost every morning for the insane view of the river and the fantastic coffee to go with it. We loved the Mocha. We ended up buying a...bag of the coffee from their store before we left!More

My boyfriend has always been a pain for finding espresso that he likes (he's Italian) so we were pleasantly surprised to discover this nice Café in Luang Prabang with great coffee. He states it's the best coffee he's ever had! A must for coffee lovers!...Our only regret was discovering too late that they do guided coffee tours and we couldn‘t do one due to our schedule. I also really enjoyed the iced chocolate drinks and the cheesecake brownie (best idea ever!).More

Excellent coffee locally produced, we shared the mango, coconut French toast, that was to die for. Has an outdoor terrace overlooking the river.
