Classy, somewhat overpriced, but always welcoming, this cafe offers pastries, sweets as well as some food. Good place to sit and watch passersby.

In the heat of the day you can stop by to have an ice coffee or whatever you like. This place is as good as any other. Like in the rest of Luang Prabang, staff is nice and quick.
