“Yummy but overrated”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

Really yummy food. LOVELY atmosphere. Really gorgeous little cafe, but I have to say the croissants did not live up to the hype. Lonely planet let me down once again. If you want a lovely atmosphere and some decent pastries definitely go. But it was not as good as the hype.

“Perfect Parisian Pasteries”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Delicate light flaky phyllo dough surrounded the pasteries we had each morning at Hotel Dhavara. We only had to walk around the corner to find the source of our delights. Before we flew out of Vietiane we ordered a vegetarian sandwich on a baguette and an apple tart to go. The flavor enhanced our memories of a fabulous eating city.

“Presentation and fine food”
Reviewed February 27, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I came across Le Banneton around noon thinking it may not be suitable for lunch, but we were pleasantly surprised. The taste and presentation of our club beef sandwich and chicken and shredded cheese tart were excellent. Service was a little slow, but it was worth the wait.
