I walked into this cafe purely by chance as it was raining heavily. I was pleasantly surprised to find a really neat, stylish yet not over the top cafe with a large menu of international options and some local food. I stuck to desert and a drink and boy the coconut tart is something to have!

Nice atmosphere, good Laotian and French food. We really loved the sandwiches. Upstairs they have a nice area to eat and relax in a French colonial atmosphere
