“Pure fabulous escapism!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

I just loved this place!
After 15 days of travel in rural Thailand and Laos, where there was little in the way of western foods for 3 meals a day, it was sheer bliss to find so many wonderful reminders of home! Don't get me wrong; I love asian cuisine. But it felt really good to splurge out on such fabulous things as lettuce, ham, cheese and tomato on a wholewheat baguette (without worrying that it may make you sick!), a blueberry muffin and fab coffee, in such relaxed and comfortable surroundings. Also clean loos and friendly, efficient staff.
Good location too, and some nice shops nearby.

“When you just want something light”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Everyone raves about the bread, but I had salads on three different occasions (twice in Luang Prabang though) and they were brilliant. The LP branch is a lot nicer though, just on the river.

“Great cinnamon bun. ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

This large chain store style bakery is a good place to escape into a western bubble. We arrived here at 7am after spending the night on a sleeper bus and were ecstatic to collapse into an armchair with hot coffee, warm and sticky cinnamon buns and free reliable WiFi. Had the lemon slice too which was average, and the prices are just okay but there's value in genuinely providing creature comforts from home.

“Great Breakfasts place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

I visited Joma's several years ago and was unimpressed. On this visit, I'm pleased to say that they have their act together. It is now much more comfortable and organized. I would recommend this place for breakfast over any of the other restaurants in the Nam Phou Fountain area.
