Solid breakfast option

This place has some decent vegan options, especially if you're missing western food. It was a bit under seasoned though.

We got a weird response from the (french?) owner for thinking that the vegan parmesan omelet would be vegan, because an omelet could never be vegan. Like it literally also says vegan parmesan my dude.

Friendly little place!

A little difficult to find but such a wholesome little restaurant. The owner was friendly and welcoming, bringing us complimentary water. Food took a little while to arrive but it was delicious. Many vegetarian/vegan options clearly labelled and often cheaper than the meaty ones.

I had the veggie massaman curry and my friend had the veggie shepherd's pie. We then had red sticky rice (for me) and sorbet for dessert (for her). Rave reviews all around.

Went here at least 5 times

We went here multiple times for the breakfast. They were usually busy, so prepare to wait for the food approx. 10-30min. 🙏🏻 Ordered from the menu where’s clearly labeled the vegan foods, tofu scramble was our favorite morning food!

Excellent Taco's & Burgers

I eat here twice and ordered from them too. The Taco's are great as are the bean burgers and the spicy potatoes. I also had the falafel plate, which was really nice, but a bit small for a main.

Pros: Great food, Friendly staff, Well priced

Ordered the Asian vegan chicken salad and the tofu tacos. Tacos were sooo good! And the salad was pretty good too - chicken was great considering you can’t really find in Laos. Lots of options but pretty expensive.

Yum with lots of vegan options

I was surprised at how many vegan options there were, they really understood the difference between vegan and vegetarian. Food was yum, price okay but a little higher than other places and not super filling. It was all really yum though and nice to see some slightly different options!

Delicious food

Delicious food at this guesthouse which is open to non staying guests. We had a tofu based salad and a chilli which came with wedges. The flavours & textures were great & they really care about their food, as they ran around town looking for a ripe avocado which the chef then added to the top of the chilli. The setting is cute and relaxed. We also ordered some takeaway falafel sandwiches which were really tasty & filling

Guesthouse with free vegan breakfast!

Stayed here for five days; while it's primarily a guesthouse, they also serve meals and have all sorts of vegan options on the menu. A full breakfast of bread, muesli, fruit, and a hot dish (such as vegan noodle soup) is included in room rates and they take great care of vegans, with special vegan treats from the market, and will get soy milk if you mention that you are vegan.
