This is a great cafe overlooking the river and you can sit in or out. The upstairs is a place you can hang out for hours. The wifi works well and they don't hassle you to move. They also have some interesting books to read upstairs and downstairs.

Stopped in and had a bowl of udon soup. Delicious. This is a nice cafe right on the banks of the Mekong River - side, close to the walking street where the night market is. Mid-range price for Luang Prabang.

Not all understand English well, however, that is not even an issue when the food reaches your table, you will be in a different land. Try the Korean cuisine, its to... More

Came here both in the afternoon and the evening - it's a lovely spot to chill with coffee and a good book, as the garden is pleasant and inside there's a nice ambience with cool furniture and interesting art. In the evening the garden is super pretty with fairy lights strung all around. The food was lovely: very fresh, ungreasy,... More

Great, clean food. Freshly prepared and very tasty. The noodle soup was big to share and the fruit shakes were perfect.
