This was our favourite lunch spot in Luang Prabang and we ate here a number of times. The ham/cheese and almond croissants are to die for, as are the amazing array of fresh salads, with creamy French cheeses, grilled eggplant, toasted walnuts, olive tapenade, crusty bread...each salad was a work of art and a taste sensation. We also dined at... More

After reading positive reviews thought we would pop in and have breakfast but was quite disappointed, the croissants were the worst we have had it asia and the bread was stale and easily forgettable, while everything looked amazing the quality didn't follow through but at least the coffee was good. Much better and much cheaper options avaliable all around town.

We ate here every day of our visit, because we just couldn't help it. It is such a lovely setting across from a temple, and sitting at little tables outside on the pavement felt like we were in Paris, just a tropical version. The croque monsieur, crepes, gallettes, cappuccinos, pastries and baguettes were all delicious and authentic - we tried... More

Desserts looked great, but went for baguette. Actual baguette was great texture and bread tasty. I was REALLY disappointed in their fillings. Boar pate sounded good on the menu, but had a cloying sweet relish. Chicken and roasted eggplant had no flavor. The price is high enough that they could have added some sauce or better fillings to bump up... More

We ate here a couple of times, afternoon coffee and pastries and finally for breakfast. Coffee was very good... rich and full flavoured, excellent flaky pastries and baguettes straight out of a Parisian Patisserie. Top notch! We also ordered filled baguettes from the lunch menu as take-aways for our minibus trip to Vang Vieng which were really delicious. Prices a... More

Visit here for the pastries and bread! We purchased baked goods as take out for our snacks at Kuang Si Waterfalls. We enjoyed the freshly baked baguette, berry tart, and the coconut cream pastry. So divine. Half of the baguette was consumed on our way to find a tuk tuk.
