Make sure to visit this place while in Luang Prabang. They make THE best garlic bread I've ever had in my life. It's a whole toasted baguette, hot and juicy, a beautiful thing really. They even have a great happy hour which includes not only beer and drinks but also these type of snacks to go with it.

Everything we ordered for dinner was very good, especially the won ton soup. The carafe of house wine was good for the price. Portions are quite large and easy to share.

Great Café that is part of the L'elephant group of restaurants. We ate there several times and enjoyed every meal. The won ton soup is excellent as is the pizza. They even placed heaters outside to keep us warm in the unusually cold weather.

Don't miss their coffee ice cream and, believe it or not, their vanilla ice cream. In addition, the staff there were particularly nice folks.
