Everything was amazing, the food tasted great but the staff was shocking! Were very rude and on 2 occasions out of 2 they forgot an order. Change the service staff and you have a perfect cafe.

This place caught our eye as it was just around the corner from our guesthouse. We ate here a few times and tried the baguette sandwiches, salads, ice creams, coffee, Croque Monsieur and wine. It's delicious, lovely and romantic, plus the kids love it. Worth the slightly higher prices for the comfort food and ambiance.

We had breakfast here as part of our hotel (next door) arrangement. Good selection of pastries. Cooked breakfasts looked good although we only had continental. The cafe was always very busy each time we passed by as testament to their good good & service

Excellent French ham and cheese baguette, espresso and sparkling water. Love Laos food but every now and again a return to Western food is a welcome respite.

Busy place. Really good baguettes and many interesting choices of food. I had better coffee other places in town such as at Saffron and the service is not the best probably because of the many guests compared to staff,but we would still come back for the good food.

Always busy in the morning and it is clear why, great bakery with delicious bread&pastries. We prefer the plain croissants&raisin buns but also tried the chocolate croissant.

The setting of this cafe is ideal and if you are lucky enough to grab a table looking onto the street you can see the golden Buddha across the way. The food was wonderful, I highly recommend the Croque-Monsieur, it was mouth watering delicious!

I wasn't ready to pay $6 for a Tomato / cheese baguette.. that too in Lao. Wasn't willing to pay for their 'reputation'...
