Description: Excellant french bakery which also has a branck in Vientiane. Has over 30 types of bread & pastaries. Open from 6.30AM to about 9PM. Very good coffee. I am a regular there for my morning coffee & pastry. I can upload a photo.

Fresh and warm chocolate and almond croissant definitely hit the spot after the alms giving! Definitely worth a visit!

Really enjoyed breakfast here. Plenty of charm with the old photos and interior. Breakfast was good. Orange juice and croissant lovely, good espresso. Mrs M felt the capuccino needed more foam though. Price fair for what you get.
Also good selection of magazines to read through, particularly enjoyed the cycling magazine reliving Sir Wiggo's 2012 tour de france exploits. Allez Allez!

Delicious variety of pastries and french delights. A bit on the pricey side with smaller portions, but good atmosphere and quality food. It would be 5 stars if they heated up your croissants! No wifi.

Cheap and good. Enjoyed a baguette with smoke ham and cheese and a beer for $7. Enjoy looking at the monks at the temple across the street.

The food here is totally awesome - a range of unusual choices or french gourmet twists on the better known. As you might expect however this all comes at a price. If you are a budget traveller then you might really find it worth it as a treat to yourself or if you have a hankering for something non-Asian.If I wasn't on a budget I would have eaten here many times instead of just my one treat of wild boar pate with crusty bread, salad drizzled with a yummy dressing and several little garnishes. Not being French I have no idea how authentic this food is but there were several French diners in there when I was there which I'm sure counts for something.
