Description: Excellant french bakery which also has a branck in Vientiane. Has over 30 types of bread & pastaries. Open from 6.30AM to about 9PM. Very good coffee. I am a regular there for my morning coffee & pastry. I can upload a photo.

Very good pastries, husband has just been to France and loved his daily baguette. He thought bread and pastries here right up there with the best. Comfortable seating, staff helpful. Nice little dress shop attached to look while waiting for the coffee and pastries.

Following the good advice from a friend, we went to this cafe! But what a disappointment: waiters and waitresses didn't pay attention at all and were playing on their mobile phones. There were totally unfriendly and were not smiling! It's a shame for this place since the food is pretty good! Unfortunately I would not recommend this place because of the awful service and the attitude of the whole staff!

The ice milk coffee taken without sugar was delightful. The chocolate croissant was also lovely. It had just the right ratio and just felt very fresh and made with experience.

Craving some bread, croissants or pastry in Laos? Seriously go here, the baking is to die for. The baguettes are simply amazing and the combinations of sandwiches and salads are truly fantastic.

The coffee is pretty good too, but the bread is the star for me! This place is like Paris.

I go here all the time and the bread quality is flawless; crusty, chewy, awesome. The prices are not the cheapest, but the quality of the western ingredients means you get what you pay for here.

We came here several times during our stay, either to eat or simply grab one of there delicious french baguette. The breakfasts are good, salads and sandwiches are excellent. It is a bit expensive for Luang Prabang, but is worth it!
