Benoni is a solid place to grab breakfast or lunch. When it is not too hot I like to sit outside, but they have an upstairs and downstairs dining indoors with aircon. The Lao menu is great...nice avocado shake...and good western style breakfast.

Another popular haunt close to Nam Phu. Service isn't the fastest, but pleasant. Nice place to take a break while in the area.
