At the beginning of our trip in Laos we found this place by chance. After travelling in Laos even in Luangprabang we didn't have such a good coffee. At the end of our trip we stayed 2 more days in Vientiane and came back every day to have our coffee here again. They have fresh and good pastry too sandwiches... More

Incredible coffee, lovely flavour. The best in the whole of south east Asia! A little expensive but worth it for the free water if you stay for a while. Going here is not just for a quick coffee, it is for an experience. It is all part of the experience. The water tastes fresh, the lattes are milky and full... More

I was very much looking forward to the good coffee in Vientiane and Naked Espresso serves a very nice one. I went for the flat white, go for regular size and it seems that the large one has more milk but not an extra shot of espresso. Interior is nice, staff very friendly and the breakfast is very good too.... More

As typical Italian I am very picky with coffee and food in general. I have discovered this hidden bar by chance and since I need a good coffee to start the day, I have decided to try it. I was excited to find a place with a proper coffee maker machine, very nice environment, well decorated and relaxed atmosphere. My... More

This place never fails. I stop by here every year I'm back. It's a nice retreat after walking around for a bit or in the area to grab a cup of coffee, relax a bit or do some work outside the office or home.

For those who understand the importance of excellent hand-pulled espresso to uplift one's day, and if you're living in or travelling through Vientiane Laos, don't miss Naked Espresso. I've tried Naked Espresso 2 on Rue Manthatourath, around the corner from the Dairy Queen (river road) in the Wat Mixay area. It's a modern, artsy interior, with a sort of retro... More

We've been travelling for 6 months now and really miss the coffee scene in Melbourne, but this place sure did serve some amazing coffee and lovely food as well. The best we've had since leaving home!

This is my overall favorite cafe I've been to in Vientiane, and of my favorites in Laos. The music is always calm and fits right in with the bright, simple and welcoming ambiance. Service is always very good. They refill water regularly even if you're sitting for hours just drinking coffee. Good selection of light to heavy dishes, although I... More
