Front door of Banneton - Vientiane

Front door of Banneton

Le Banneton: A bakery and a coffee shop

This is another place where you can get a decent breakfast french style.
American breakfast with eggs and bacon is also available.

The viennoiserie (croissant, petit pain au chocolat,...) are much better than Joma but the coffee is not up to what I expected.

FYI, a banneton is a traditional baguette

Favorite Dish: Croissant, baguette with butter and jam

Comparison: about average

Directions: Well, can't recall exactly the location but Vientiane tourist area is so small that you should not have any problem finding the place.

Price: less than US$10

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars

JOMA Bakery Café: A Lao Starbucks ?

Joma is there for a long time already. I remember when I was working in Laos, this place was called Fresh and Healthy Bakery.

Basically, you can fin everything a Starbucks offers but with some healthier alternative.

I especially like their granola fruit yogurt.

Compare to other place, JOMA is quite expensive.

They also have a branch in LB.

Favorite Dish: granola fruit yogurt
Cafe Latte

Comparison: more expensive than average

Directions: Opposit Kop Chai Deu. Can't miss it !
