First-rate coffee and food in a delightful space. A creative intelligence underpins everything about it. Supports farmers too. I believe it is the best cafe in Luang Prabang.

This relatively new cafe is a very good copy of Joma's business strategy. Order at the counter, get a number, a limited menu. Nice location and good coffee.

Maybe the place for the best coffee in Luang Prabang, while enjoying the view of Mekong River. Saffron also got really good food, for example wraps.

This coffee was served at a sumptuous breakfast offered by our hotel Lotus Villa Boutique Hotel. We went there to purchase whole beans to bring home, and were not disappointed

We stumbled upon this before checking TripAdvisor. It was inviting, not least because they had traditional shortbread! We had tea, coffee and two cakes, priced a little less than you might pay in the UK. Delicious. We didn’t have a meal but, from what we...More
