  • We traveled with our children through Luang Prabang and enjoyed breakfast at L'etranger every morning. The Stars and Stripes was a family favorite and we never tired of having the same dish every morn...  more »
  • Every night on the top floor of this library-bar projecting free films in English. Excellent idea. The space is very nice and the food pretty good, not cheap for the standard Lao. Very good soup with vegetables cooked in coconut milk but watch out for the huge pieces of ginger. Same problem with ginger tea, strong enough to be undrinkable!

  • This place is so charming and comfy. It's so nice to hang out on the floor pillows upstairs and read or write. There is so much beautiful art upstairs and nice handicrafts to buy downstairs. The ginger tea is incredible! The French onion soup wasn't the best but it serves me right for ordering that in Laos. Still give this place five stars. And they play interesting movies every night at 7:30.
  • Love this place. Food is decent and has a wide selection to choose from. Has books you can buy or trade - multiple languages too. Films are shown every night at 7pm which is great, just wish that the quality could be better.
  • Real Lao coffee. Good place to read. One of the places you can find a second hand book. Linked to the Big Brother Mouse initiative to provide books in Lao for children. Also sells local handicrafts.
  • cute little place which has a cafe / book shop on the ground floor offering local and western food. they do a really good ginger tea and the best mango sticky rice ever! the second floor they show free films in the evening , all you need to do is purchase at least 1 drink. overall nice place to chill.
  • I really enjoyed their movie night. We watched "The Big Sick," and it was a very cool setting in which to do so. They charged me nothing. Thanks for the great experience!
