As we were quite down after we fouhnd out how bad our hotel was, we needed something uplifting. Well this place will do that. The fresh salad and good wine made my wife almost act like orgasmic Sally in 'Harry met Sally'. For me I had a very nice pizza, a nice change after a few days of less preferable... More

We love Asian food, but sometimes you need a taste of home. We stopped here because it was busy, a good sign, the fabulous decor & the menu. We shared the Neapolitan pizza & loved it. Juicy with fresh basil & tomatoes, very crispy crust....we loved it so much we came back another day & ordered it again.

Based on other TA reviews, my husband and I visited our last evening in Luang Prabang. The food was fresh and delicious! My husband ordered a pasta dish and raved about it. Considering that he is a fairly picky eater, that is something spectacular. I highly recommend this quaint cafe! Truly one of the best meals during our 2 week... More

I ate here twice because I liked the food so much the first time. The food has a french style and is very good. It is not expensive and a comfortable place to sit.

I stayed a week in LP and this became a tradition for me for breakfast. The big breakfast was my staple - eggs, bacon, BIG basket of hot fresh breads (French), big bowl of fresh fruit, fresh OJ, and a pot of coffee, good for two large cups. With a fast wifi and great outside siting I tended to linger... More

We went for breakfast and started with coffee which was awful. Filter coffee that tasted like it had sat around for a good while! It put us off eating there and we went elsewhere which had great coffee and food.
