Lin's has moved to new, bigger, premises right next to the night market plaza. Everything is as good as the old place, high quality smoothies, delicious food, vegetarian choices, and super clean toilets! :) What more could you want? :)

Maybe the best place to eat in Savannakhet (Laos). Good European and Asian food. Air-conditioner and nice view. Waiters are quite slow.

Right in the middle of town, on the Plaza, this is a great place for a coffee or to check your email. Very friendly people, great chairs!

The recently opened new location is very trendy and nicely decorated. The food here is really good, and decently priced. In our opinion this is by far the best restaurant in town!

Relaxed western style cafe with good shakes and coffees. Books to read and or exchange. Located on the main square. Plenty of laundry places available nearby in case you need them after many days on the road.

Judging by its universally positive reviews I am not the only one who has inadvertently caused a problem for Lin's Cafe. They have been forced to move to larger premises!

I was there several tunes during my 3 months staying in Savannakhet. It's really good place. I think there's biggest rations in whole city and the prize is only like $4 per food. I'd recommend some creamy spaghetti ;)
