Tried several cafes to get a good flat white and this cafe served the best. We also ordered food which was good had a vegetarian sandwich and a Mediterranean salad. The salad was very large and tasty with two slices of crusty bread.

On recommendation from a local, I came here to try the black coffee, and some tarts and a parfate. Astonishingly good, to the point where I felt a review was mandatory.

This is the perfect spot if you're feeling a little tired of Lao food (what? it happens!). Great matcha latte and very good quality paninis. They offer complementary water and places to charge the phone. No wifi though.

Lovely little French bakery - had latte and a croissant for breakfast here. Food and service were okay. Took me a while to figure out that I had to order at the counter, as the waiters seemed busy. Mostly caters to expats and foreign tourists...More
