Food is great, staff are lovely and the cafe it's self is neat and pretty. It's a great place to sit during the day and watch the world go by. Would definitely go back.

Nice pastries and tarts served with local coffee and local herbal tea. Cosy atmosphere and away from the crowd who goes for the night market

We enjoyed an evening meal here, buffalo beautifully cooked, nice salad and a basket of fresh bread too. Very reasonably priced for the quality of food. Will be going back before we leave Luang Prabang.

Pleasant cafe located opposite the elementary school. Wonderful Rosella (hibiscus) iced tea and a nice unhurried atmosphere. Be there before 4pm when school lets out to see the kids sing/shout the end of the day songs before pouring out the gates to their waiting parents.

Came here on the recommendation of our Hotel manager and certainly not disappointed. Once you get over the completely ridiculously arranged menu you can choose from comfortable European food to a great selection of Lao speciality dishes. The restaurant caters for dining at all times...More

We ate here twice, once for afternoon drinks on our first exploratory walk round L P, then again for a lunch. We sat outside, on the delightful main street, opposite a Wat (temple). Our lunches were quiches, very nicely cooked, and service was prompt. The...More
