The food, the ethical ideals, the programme to help locals enhance English and cooking skills. More businesses should use this business model. One of the most amazing burritos I've ever eaten. Fast Wi-Fi. Great music. Lovely chairs. Meet fellow travellers and give your money to...More

Lovely place, comfy sofas and armchairs, nice staff, neither cheap nor stupidly expensive (Luang Namtha. seems to be an expensive place - we live in Vientiane and I thought it would be cheaper here, but no). We had a burrito and a vegetarian sandwich (tofu,...More

Nice initiative with good food. The home made toast was delicious and the setting was cousy and secluded even though the main street is right outside. The free guide about free stuff to do in Luang Namtha while not trekking was appreciated as a backpacker.

What is in this Jungle Berry Jam? It is amazing. If you visit (and you should) make sure you try the Jungle Berry Jam.

Nice comfortable place to meet fellow travellers and share some local food. I enjoyed the healthy breakfast and ambiance of the place conveniently situated near the night markets.

We use authentic delicious western food to empower the local community. Food you're craving from home with a combination of fresh local ingredients and imported specials such as real cheese, bacon, olives from our nearest supermarket 7 hours and an international border crossing away. We have woodfired pizzas, Italian pastas and risottos, big breakfasts, awesome sandwiches, real espresso and top notch cocktails. All our staff are local ethnic minority people with no prior English language, food preparation or customer service skills. They come to work with us to learn English and how to work in the hospitality industry. Our profit is donated to the Luang Namtha Books In Schools program to increase the number of textbooks in the local schools from the current 1 per 3 students to everyone having their own set of textbooks. So far we've donated over 2,800 textbooks to local students. Come in to our training restaurant to help us support northern Laos!
