  • What a cute little place to chill! Great spot to relax, read, write, drink tea, etc. they have a nice selection of fair trade items/crafts for sale from local villagers. Definitely will be back for their free movie every night at 7pm. Keep in mind they do ask you to order at least one item from the movie (can be a drink).. not a bad set up
  • Charming little cafe + bookshop. Good Lao coffee. They have nightly movies, though this might be irrelevant in the era of Netflix.
  • Lounge upstairs with a book and some tea, browse/buy artwork from local artists in the gallery, sell your own books to help support child literacy in Laos, watch a free film in the evening, enjoy a mix of Laos cuisine with a beer or two. With a friendly welcome from the staff, any or all of the above make this a great place to hang out from dawn till dusk.
  • Really nice cozy place. Good food, nice staff. Loved movie night!
  • It's got some really cool things in it . Has a lot of character /art /books /movies /
