Tucked away down a quiet street, there is this calm oasis of cool food - what a lovely hideaway. Was busy for a Monday lunchtime which always encourages me to feel positive about a place. Had a great dish of pork phad Thai, with a cooling lemonade. Typical SE Asian service - in their own time - but I'm ok... More

There were no tripadvisor hours listed, and I read a couple of the other reviews to determine if they were open for dinner or not. I couldn't tell, but it looked like they were. We trekked out in the dark to find this difficult to locate restaurant, and with some effort found the small lane it is located on. Big... More

Went there yesterday. The place is a restaurant/street food at the end of a quiet local street. Good food, charming people and very nice environment!! Will go back!

We looked for it for a few minutes but the pate sandwich did worth it , the mango smoothies too. Definitely should try even if visiting for one day

As vegetarians we appreciated the wide selection of dishes. I think all the entrees were 15,000 KIP. We had a coconut soup and stir fry vegetables with two ice coffee for about $5 dollars. Fresh ingredients, perfect spice and a quaint setting with lots of return business. I really miss this place.

Asia can be hectic at times, and this is just the place to escape. Hidden in the back of a narrow street, it's peaceful. I went here 2 times in one day because I was feeling so stressed out :D it's family run and they love to chat, the food is nice&cheap

I'm so glad we had the chance to visit today. The cafe is small and humble, but felt very authentic. The food was very good...you must try the mango sticky rice pancake... my companions ordered them, and after I tried their's, I had to order my own. It's my new favorite breakfast food (thankfully they let us order them at... More

This place is located at the end of an alley. Seems to be a popular local breakfast spot. They serve humble food that is good and cheap.

I was recommend this place by a fellow traveller who had been in Vientiane for a few months. Squeezed down a back alley this delightful laid back mostly outdoor cafe serves really nice reasonably priced food. You won't be the only travellers there, but that doesn't make it any less authentic. Very friendly service too.

Thank DJH747
