A great place to relax for an hour or two and enjoy a leisurely lunch. Not the cheapest option but the baguettes are excellent and the coffee is ok - there's a lot of pretty crap coffee in Laos, surprising since the locally grown product is good.

I spent four days in Luang Prabang and I came here three times! The food was always great, even though somewhat expensive compared to other places around town. But it was worth it. They have a display of cakes and other French pastries which go along very well with a nice espresso.

We had an early lunch at Le Ban Vat Sene before heading to the airport. Good spot on the main road with a few tables outside and nice ambience inside. Food was tasty - even got a baguette to take away - and coffee good. Staff were efficient but could have been friendlier.

The food was good but there was a slight ant problem (ants on the wall, table and in my bread) and the staff were very unfriendly and snobbish. Would not come again unless there were no other options.

Limited menu choice, excellent deserts, great place for a drink - either sitting inside or at the tables on the pavement. The service on the two occasions we visited was excellent - the staff are efficient, personable and well turned out (you cant go past basic black!)
