We had a reasonable meal with a good choice of local and international food. The owner spoke reasonable English.

I have had their Toast-set countless times and I never tire of it. A plate of fresh fruit salad, two slices of toast with butter and jam, tea or coffee. Excellent. I also recommend their vegetable pho', made with thin strips of pasta which wilt in the delicious hot broth. Their curried eggs baguette is also worth a try.

Only had the coffee here...I had the hot lao coffee it was okay but I've had much better other places. My sister had an iced coffee she said it was fine but a bitter aftertaste. Can't really say anything about the food though...lonely planet recommends it.

Been here a couple of times for fruitshakes or a beer. Nice service and atmosphere. Haven't tried the food though. Located along the main tourist street.

This basic option is fine for a bit of western food, think toasties or the like and also shows the movie Bombies, which if you have not seen at MAG centre is really worth while. Staff are friendly and the memorabilia on the walls worth perusing. Get a pic outside with the bomb casings. Well located in town centre.

The old bombs outside are a great touch to the setting of this restaurant. Me and my partner came in for some lunch/late breakfast. The service was good and efficient. Food nothing to shout about but it was tasty and was exactly what you would expect. A great spot for a quick and easy no fuss meal
