We went for coffee. It was very good. The staff were polite and efficient. I did not experience the “cranky” attitude that I was seeking. Perhaps the owner was away. Maybe the staff have to work on being less accomodating. I would like to complain...More

Dear Wendy, I must apologize for not being present when you were at Cranky-T, and delighted that you enjoyed our goods and service. I promise to give you a full on cranky attitude next time you visit us. Thank you for your review.

Coffee is good. The breakfast sets are really not that special and very expensive (45.000 kip). Cakes that I had was also mwah in my opinion. But again coffee is very good!More

Well, Cranky-T is not for everyone, especially for someone that travels and thinks he or she can live on a 2 dollar per day budget in Asia. For someone who isn't aware of his or her surroundings should really stay home and eat a cup...More

Dropped in really quickly as I needed a breakfast before going on the Plain of Jars tour. They packed me two huge breakfasts to go, which was more than enough food for my partner and me. Will definitely be back again!

Answer to a prayer, was desperate for a proper tea time tea, and passed this cafe while going to photograph Craters. Proper Twinnings tea, and delicious oatmeal cookies amongst other bakery delights, and two minutes from the MAG office & my hotel.

This is the best place to go for breakfast in Phonsavang without a doubt. Their ham and cheese panini was excellent but my husband's banana pancake was even better. Fun funky place and a lovely owner who speaks English like a native.
