Really nice little restaurant cafe, they hire people from local villages and teach them to speak English so be sure to practice with them. Coffee and shakes are good, I didn't eat here tho. Nice snap area out the front to sit in, no smoking, relaxed.

we went at the 2nd floor, most of the beer on the menu are " bomi" (out of stock), we finally placed the order and got our food (owen pizza but not good at all), one by one, every 20 minutes. Then we claimed to pay the bill because the staff has forgotten that they have some clients upstair. Otherwise... More

Nice comfortable place to meet fellow travellers and share some local food. I enjoyed the healthy breakfast and ambiance of the place conveniently situated near the night markets.

We ate there two nights, having the the gluten free pizza with added cheese, friendly service if not lacking slightly in english skills, but hay you are in Laos, and they do try to help when they can put their mobiles down.

Don't judge, it's been many days of noodles and veggies I didn't recognize and zero English, and I'm so glad I did it. BUT, there is something so helpful about ordering a pizza and a coke and getting both exactly as you'd expect :) When interesting is constant, boring is sometimes desirable. Food was great. Good service with a smile... More

When I visited there were no other customers so no ambience but the food was good and beer cold. Wifi would not connect for me and they refused to reset because it worked for the staff so in their mind nothing was wrong. Possibly a cool place to hangout if you were a group.

Food was terrific, i ate a few things here including the pizza which was very nice. Their drinks were good and it seemed to be a great place to meet and share travel stories with others.

If you have been in a South East Asia for a while and are missing western food, stop here! I thoroughly enjoyed my Spanish style wrap with fresh ingredients. The BLT was thoroughly enjoyed by my partner. All washed down with a cold glass of beer. Comfortable seating which makes a welcome change from tiny plastic chairs. Dinner was fantastic... More

We use authentic delicious western food to empower the local community. Food you're craving from home with a combination of fresh local ingredients and imported specials such as real cheese, bacon, olives from our nearest supermarket 7 hours and an international border crossing away. We have woodfired pizzas, Italian pastas and risottos, big breakfasts, awesome sandwiches, real espresso and top notch cocktails. All our staff are local ethnic minority people with no prior English language, food preparation or customer service skills. They come to work with us to learn English and how to work in the hospitality industry. Our profit is donated to the Luang Namtha Books In Schools program to increase the number of textbooks in the local schools from the current 1 per 3 students to everyone having their own set of textbooks. So far we've donated over 2,800 textbooks to local students. Come in to our training restaurant to help us support northern Laos!
