  The Main Fountain in Vientiane, Laos
by sgtowns

Located in the center of downtown Vientiane at the main fountain, the Scandinavian Bakery gets a huge thumbs up from me. Of course it is full of tourists, but what do you expect from a place in Laos called the Scandinavian Bakery?

The breakfast here (juices, coffee, croissant sandwiches, pastries) is really quite good. They also usually have a lot of English and other European newspapers laying around.

I've been to Vientiane twice now, and both times I throughly enjoyed my breakfasts sitting on the outside dining area looking at the big fountain across the street.

Favorite Dish: Pastries are WONDERFUL. I usually get the breakfast set which includes orange juice, coffee, and a ham and cheese croissant. Delicious!
