Eat here one a year for three years straight when visiting Lao. Think of this as Subway but with a much more refined menu, options, and homemade deserts to include milkshakes. Service is fast with a great atmosphere and free WiFi. This restaurant attracts western visitors and is a climate controlled facility. A quick bite for a "fare" price.

Decent enough place, clean and efficient, but the coffee was poor, not the worst I had in Vientiane but close. Too weak- that does not imply I like strong coffee, this was too light on flavour. Hence I did not return and in the end used Sinouk where the coffee was streets ahead.

After a few weeks on the road, a nice basic toasted sandwich and 'mug' off coffee was welcome. Very quick service, nice atmosphere, but definitely not authentic food if that's what your looking for.

Having just arrived in Vientiane after an early wake up and flight from Luang Prabang, Joma was an ideal stop to revive. The coffee is delicious and the food very well prepared and tasty. I had a BLT on Focaccia bread and my wife a Salmon Roll. Both excellent. Very quick and good service.

Joma bakery is a prototype of Lao Starbucks.... The place has several bakeries in every big town including Vientien and Luang Praban. So if Jomma exists in any place it means you're in a right place. Food is delicious and coffee is good. working Staff basicly is formed by lao teenagers that speak basic English so no problem with communication.... More

The food and beverages served is about the same as the international chain stores. Coffee I had at noon was pretty strong making me stay awake the whole night. Free wifi is a common offer.

I've been in Asia the past 3 years and although you can get western food most places, this is the most home-like food I've had! We ate breakfast here every day and came back in the evenings for pumpkin pie which tasted just like home! Not only was the food great but the staff was above and beyond. The atm... More

We (older parents and adult son) had breakfast at Joma. Sadly the coffee was thin and bitter. We paid, ate our food (which was fine), drank our smoothies (the best of it all) and left, our coffees essentially untouched.

Hi there! Thank you so much for visiting our cafe. We are so glad that you enjoyed the meal and the smoothies.
