We came here for breakfast and really enjoyed their crepes. They had a few vegetarian options and complied to our special requests. The building its in is beautiful and it's a nice place for a small meal and some coffee.

Great spot for lunch. Excellent cafe au lait - Laotian coffee with Carnation milk is an acquired taste that I didn’t manage to acguire! Fabulous baguettes with excellent pate, you could be in Paris. Excellent deli as well, with wines, pates and cheeses. Highly recommended.

We visited recently remembering eating breakfast here in our last visit to Luang Prabang 12 years ago. Breakfast is still good, they do a nice set including coffee/juice/croissant/baguette etc and you can sit and watch the world go by

Our favorite French bakery. Enjoyed the crepes and quiche and found ourselves always saving room for their desserts or.....getting one to share on our walk back to our hotel.

It is a nice place. We took a outside seat and had little appetizers and cappuccinos. It is a bit higher prized than the average in Luang Prabang but we would go again!

We had lunch here twice during our 3 days in Luang Prabang. We feasted on a brie bacon and tomato baguettes, ham and cheese crepes, spinach quiche, and a wonderfully fresh green salad with vinaigrette. I highly recommend.
