We had salads which were good. Nice to escape the heat outside and enjoy a few cold drinks at Common Grounds.

Good food and atmosphere. Friendly staff and FREE wifi. It was busy on the weekends but had a fun vibe. We have been to CG four times in our two week stay in the capital. We love it. Super tasty Mexican food and the best ice cream in town. Cookies and cream is excellent!!

Great place to visit with the family since there's an awesome playground. Parents enjoy great food while watching their kids through the big windows.

Common Grounds is one of my favorite finds in Vientiane, Laos. Tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc. American cuisine at prices that can't be beat. And wait til you've had those amazing oatmeal raisin cookies...one simply isn't enough. Since moving to Vientiane for work, this has become one of my favorite places and is always guaranteed to put a smile on my face.

Thanks so much for taking time to tell us what you like about Common Grounds! We're always trying to one-up ourselves with Service, efficiency, and over-all dining experience. We hope you'll keep coming back as we have expanded Common Grounds with up-stairs seating perfect for business meetings or quietly using our free wi-fi. And did you know you can buy our Oatmeal Raisin Cookies in packs of 6? Share the love, tell your friends!

Common Grounds serves a variety of both Vegetarian and Non-Vegetarian dishes. They are all fresh! They mainly serve 'mexican' food inc. pita breas with falafel or chicken, quesadillas, beef etc. Lots of variety! This place is probably slightly more expensive than other places around (cheaper than Joma cafe though) and caters for westeners. Try the caramel and walnut cheesecake - I come here just to get it! You can't get anything better in Vientiane (sweet wise!) There is free wifi and a kids playground. A good place to chill and escape the heat.
