Hi lloyd d,

Thanks a ton for you review of Joma! Quite the compliment, we must say, on our coffee! Thanks a lot! And yes, we also wish we were able to provide more than our current 20 seats outside but unfortunately don't quite have the room. We're hoping to open another cafe in the near future though so look out!

Have a great day,

Management

“A great place to relax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

When you feel like relaxing while enjoying American-style salads, desserts, pizzas, rolls and coffees, then air-conditioned JOMA is the place to come. It is located on the main north-south street near the post office. It has a sort of Starbucks atmosphere, but with more choices of home-cook food. There are 2 floors with chairs or comfortable seats. The service is friendly, rapid and impeccable.

Hi Hal38,

Thanks a bunch for your 5 star review of Joma. Wow, we couldn't have asked for a better review of explanation of what we are! We love hearing that we are sort of like Starbucks but with more food and a homelike feel; that is exactly what we're going for. We've also let our staff know your comments and 5 stars regarding their service.

Have a great rest of your trip!

“Good Comfort Food from Home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Crazy crowded at lunch, the menu feels like home. The smoked salmon on a sun dried tomato bagel, with lots of creme cheese hit the spot. The chocolate chip cookies are excellent and the iced mocha was great. This is a place to hit if you've been going native for long periods of time and suddenly crave a little slice of home.

Hi NeroNewDelhi,

Thanks a lot for your review of Joma! We're so glad you were able to get a little taste of home cause that's exactly what we're trying to give you. It sounds like you quite enjoyed our food and drinks while getting away from the heat and bustle of lovely Luang Prabang.

Have a great rest of your journey,

Management

“Best cake in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Value for money and try their CARROT cake....yummy! The ambience here is much nicer and warmer compared to the one in Vientiane. A great place to hangout especially in the HOT afternoons in Luang Prabang!

Hi Dochicin,

Thanks a lot for your 5 star review of Joma! Sounds like you loved the carrot cake as much as we do. And yes, it is quite hot this time of year so please make your way back for our free wifi and great aircon.

Have a great rest of your travels,

“worth every calorie !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

The croissant was fresh and it tasted incredible but pricy compare to the size of the croissant.
Awesome spinach lasagna (worth every calorie) and also good cappuccino.

A bit expensive but after all we enjoy our breakfast and the atmosphere.

Hi B J,

Thanks a ton for your review! We like to think we match our deliciousness to our calorie count. And we're quite glad that you agree with it's worth! Thanks for choosing Joma and we hope to see you again soon in Hanoi or Vientiane.
