I would have given 5 stars but I ordered a beef baguette sandwich (really good, with a small tasty salad) and the "Belgian" fries and a lime drink. The waitress forgot the drink and brought the fries in the last part of the sandwich- so...More

I don't know why anyone would be surprised to find a great French cafe in the former French Indochina. Frankly, the only surprise is that there are not more of them. But this one is just marvelous. We had a delicious light lunch with great...More

We went to Le Banneton café and bakery, to have ONE croissant each, but we had to buy ONE DOZEN! If you want a break from Asian food, (as delicious as it is, I’m not complaining!) just treat yourself to a cup of tea and...More

It seemed a bit bizarre to be sitting in the heat of Luang Prabang, eating excellent baguettes with the hammer and sickle flying merrily outside! This well known café has great baguettes, good coffee and pastries, and is an excellent place for breakfast or lunch

Le Banneton's reputation preceded itself even before our arrival to Luang Prabang - most sites that recommend dining spots in the city will give it some kind of mention. We were almost determined not to be 1st world softies and spend anytime there during our...More

Wonderfully tasty baguettes, croissants and coffees. A piece of France in Laos! Prices are modest in relation to what you get. Located just across a temple on the main road so a great place to hang out, chat with people, and watch street and temple...More
