I visited this place for lunch. Had a stewed pork with rice for 4USD. Portion was a bit small, especially on the meat part - but it was good. The restaurant was very clean and staff took order and brought the food very fast. Free wifi. The sandwiches and desserts served to other people around us looked very good. Recommend... More

I really loved the food! It was just a walking distance to our hotel. The coffee was the best! The atmosphere was also great :)

Friends and I found this place just walking around. I've eaten there twice already. The first time I had Pad Thai, the second, I had chicken fried noodles. The coffee is ok, I wouldn't say it great by any standards. The food however is fresh and very good.

I have never been to a black canyon yet that has had clean toilets! This is really poor for a coffee chain. Broken doors, not even able to close them, overflowing bins, and not to mention the general uncleanliness. The coffee is poor. Even a large cup is small by comparison to other places, and the taste is equally as... More

I had breakfast and lunch here and I was surprised that the prices and quality in this coffee shop were better than in other more expensive restaurants. They have a lot of seafood on their menu which is great if you don't eat meat anymore and the variety is amazing. Really tasty and it's great to be able to escape... More

We have visited this coffee shop regularly during our 3 nite stay in Vientiane. We mainly had iced coffee as we were not use to the humid weather. We had lunch there twice both times being excellent. The staff were attentive & could do no more, can not recommend this coffee shop more highly.
