“Good for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

This is a very French inspired place with an interesting selection of light meals and sandwiches and some very nice patisserie. You can ales buy a number of deli type items and jams. The portions are generous so while it's not the cheapest if you want a change from all Lao probably worth a try.

“Best croissants”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

The continental set breakfast here is really good value - two croissants with jam, a large coffee with milk and a juice for about $5. It's a nice, quiet end of town and the perfect place for a relaxing morning.

“A real gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

After eating at the sister café in Vientiane we knew that we were in for a treat when in LP. Did not disappoint! Opens early and would be prefect for breakfast after the morning alms giving nearby. We had lunch, bought ice creams, bread and pastries during our stay over several days. Could not fault and brought back pleasant memories of Paris. It is at the quiet end of the main street in LP which adds to its appeal.
