“Great small cakes”

Ancient Luang Prabang Cafe
Ranked #144 of 208 Restaurants in Luang Prabang
Description: Apparently this cafe is in combinantion with a hotel and part of a small chain in Luang Prabang. We had great cakes in an absolutely clean environment and with immaculate service. It would be good if companion travelers learned from this cafe

The cafe service is shocking, but they do have yummy small cakes for sale at nights and they make up for any other shortcomings

As i was craving for something non local, I chose this shop cause I was delighted by the selection of bread they were selling at the bakery just at their doorsteps! They have many handmade bread which is delicious but a lil tad expensive compared to the local food around the area. I ordered the pancake set with a mushroom soup set. The pancake set cost, 45000 Kip and soup cost 25000 Kip. The pancake surprised me when it was actually squarish looking instead of circular, but nonetheless it's a change and it tastes really good with sides of hotdogs, bacon and maple syrup. The soup wasn't such a winner. It tasted normal and much like something that came outta a can. But they do sell local food as well and if you're craving for bread you can pop by this cafe!

I ordered the breakfast set (eggs/bread/juice/tea) and asked of I could have a small fruit salad instead of the juice. No. Then I asked for some butter for my bread. 5000 kip extra. My teacup came half-filled and they didn't understand quite why I would want a full cup. When I finished my first cup, I asked for some more hot water. Another surcharge.

With so many places to eat in town, I can't imagine I'll be back.

Good coffee, love the cakes they sell,out the front but the service is useless. Each time we went we had to follow up in our order. They ran out of Coke and didnt bother to replenish two days later. Cant have a shop wihtout coke, surely

Average standard of food, just a little bit more expensive than less exuberant looking places.

The staff didn't seem very helpful or attentive either.

The mixed fruit breakfast with granola and yoghurt was a pretty good way to start the day!

Don't avoid the place but don't make it a 'must visit' destination.
