You won't have a really bad meal here. Service is friendly and prompt. Not a huge range of baked goods. Not cheap.

'Joma' has several places in Vientiane (and even Luang Prabang). They're all good. Food is nice, coffee is good. Aimed at the western tourist market. Reliable place for lunch.

Nice place to sit and relax. The coffee is very good, along with the service. A must do while in Laos

Joma's prices have no landed into the ridiculous range. It is the Starbucks of Vientiane.

But the food is always good, and the place is always clean, with indoor and outdoor seating and fast WiFi.

And I love egg sandwiches. The bagel egger is the only reason I go there. But it just went up to 32,000 LAK ($4). I don't mind paying for good food, I really don't, but 4 dollars for a single egg on a bagel is nuts. I come from New York; even Manhattan bagel shops don't charge $4 for one egg on a bagel.

Also, the service is slow. A bagel and egg sandwich--with an empty restaurant--should not take more than 5 minutes (The Swedish bakery has proved this in Lao). I have waited up to ten minutes with the restaurant empty.

The coffee is too damned expensive; the pastries, everything. And it is too slow and too crowded on the weekends.

Joma was a nice enough coffee shop / cafe, but was let down by the quality of the food and drink. The iced coffee was OK, but the ham and cheese croissant was fairly bland and when served "toasted" only a couple of degrees warmer than it must have been in the food cabinet. The wifi wasn't working either. Not really worth going back to. The True Coffee just down the road is much better.
