This place never fails. I stop by here every year I'm back. It's a nice retreat after walking around for a bit or in the area to grab a cup of coffee, relax a bit or do some work outside the office or home.

For those who understand the importance of excellent hand-pulled espresso to uplift one's day, and if you're living in or travelling through Vientiane Laos, don't miss Naked Espresso. I've tried Naked Espresso 2 on Rue Manthatourath, around the corner from the Dairy Queen (river road) in the Wat Mixay area. It's a modern, artsy interior, with a sort of retro... More

We've been travelling for 6 months now and really miss the coffee scene in Melbourne, but this place sure did serve some amazing coffee and lovely food as well. The best we've had since leaving home!

This is my overall favorite cafe I've been to in Vientiane, and of my favorites in Laos. The music is always calm and fits right in with the bright, simple and welcoming ambiance. Service is always very good. They refill water regularly even if you're sitting for hours just drinking coffee. Good selection of light to heavy dishes, although I... More

We (parents and adult son) get sad in the face of bad coffee and Asia has plenty of it. Thank goodness we stumbled across this place in central Vientiane. For coffee devotees and anyone wanting to relax in a friendly environment with great coffee, good food (My BLT with aioli was excellent) and fresh pastries . Highly recommended.

We went there for breakfast and weren't disappointed. The barista are really good at what their doing: we had a Latte, an espresso and a Mocha. The roast is a bit bitter but it gives character to wake you up in the morning. Service is friendly. What could one expect more? Please note it is a small place, in Laos,... More

Ice Cappuccino is my favorite choice when I came here. I would say that this cafe is the best in town providing good coffee with nice dessert. Always drop by when Im free

Had an amazing flat white coffee here. The price was medium range for Laos, but still cheaper than at home in NZ.

Not sure what happened, maybe they just had a bad day, but the omelet i had for lunch was not up to scratch; the 'salad' I was expecting was a few lettuce leaves; The menu is too limited to count on as a reliable lunch stop. the coffee is good. Go for the coffee and you'll be pleased
