“The best croissants in town”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

I want to go back again and again to this great bakery and cafe. The almond croissants were to die for as were all of the bakery goods. The coffee was excellent and the eggs and fruit plate were good too. Charming eclectic atmosphere. This is my favorite cafe in LP.

“Delightful pastry and crepes”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

This is my family's favourite cafe in Luang Prabang where we breakfast every morning each time we visit. The Lao coffee is excellent and the French-style pastries are delightful. They are generously-sized as well. Le Banneton also has delicious fruit shakes and home-made ice creams. The sweet and savoury crepes should not be missed either. We also enjoy having sandwiches there. Don't miss the excellent lemon tart. My younger daughter would not leave Luang Prabang without a takeaway fruit shake from Le Banneton!

“Charming!”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Had lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed the pate on French Baquette. Went back the next day and ordered "take out" sandwiches for a picnic at the Khuang Si Falls. Convenient ATM located next door.

“Didn't expect pastry this good ...!”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Ended up stopping by at least once a day for a croissant or a little tarte au citron. Delicious, and the sidewalk tables are perfect for monk watching.
