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.

Fantastic bread and pastries. Won't find better anywhere. The pastries melted in your mouth. Wish we had a restaurant like this back home ! Coffee did lack some taste and body. Also staff seemed to find it hard to smile! Lovely clean amenities.

Le Banneton bakery serves the best baguettes we've ever had, even better than in France. The croissants and pains au chocolat are also very good and the coffee is great. It opens early so it's great to habe your breakfast there after watching the monk ceremony in the early morning.

The food here is very good and priced at the extreme even for the tourists that swarm in. I ordered an English Breakfast Tea at 18,000 kip. English breakfast tea is strong and normally drunk with milk.No milk came so I asked for a little milk. Viola, up came a tiny jug and a bill for 3000kip. The amount of money is not the question but the method which , in this establishment, seems to be to squeeze the last kip out of your customer, come what may. This chain of restaurants will now not enjoy my patronage and I am sure it will not bother them in the slightest.
