“Mediocre food and surcharges for extras!”

Ancient Luang Prabang Cafe
Ranked #149 of 212 Restaurants in Luang Prabang
Description: Apparently this cafe is in combinantion with a hotel and part of a small chain in Luang Prabang. We had great cakes in an absolutely clean environment and with immaculate service. It would be good if companion travelers learned from this cafe

I ordered the breakfast set (eggs/bread/juice/tea) and asked of I could have a small fruit salad instead of the juice. No. Then I asked for some butter for my bread. 5000 kip extra. My teacup came half-filled and they didn't understand quite why I would want a full cup. When I finished my first cup, I asked for some more hot water. Another surcharge.

With so many places to eat in town, I can't imagine I'll be back.

Good coffee, love the cakes they sell,out the front but the service is useless. Each time we went we had to follow up in our order. They ran out of Coke and didnt bother to replenish two days later. Cant have a shop wihtout coke, surely

Average standard of food, just a little bit more expensive than less exuberant looking places.

The staff didn't seem very helpful or attentive either.

The mixed fruit breakfast with granola and yoghurt was a pretty good way to start the day!

Don't avoid the place but don't make it a 'must visit' destination.

I ate here last night and it was very underwhelming. Our friends received their food, and finished it, before I received my spaghetti carbonara (which was over-sauced and had large globs of a rubbery, questionable substance inside).

The "ground beef"- cut into interesting squares - in my girlfriend's spaghetti bolognaise was very chewy. She didn't finish her plate.

However, I had a Laos coffee which was very nice. All-in-all, I would give this place a miss.

I often stop here and try one of the many cakes on offer washed down with a cafe Lao.
A great cake selection on offer to eat in in or take away, banana, mango, orange etc.
Breakfast here is ok too, cheaper than some of the other places on the street and worth a try..
It always seems to be busy which is a good sign.
