Overpriced and Oily - Edit

Would be more enthused if the prices were more reasonable and they didn’t love to use oil/sugar syrup so much.

Amazing vegan options! - Edit

Great service and great aesthetic if you're looking for a more Western feeling oasis with many books available to borrow and good wifi.

Laos is known for its amazing French breads and pastries due to French colonialism in the late 1800s to mid 1900s. The vegan baguette at Novelty Cafe did not disappoint. I also enjoyed a fresh juice and roasted almond latte with soy milk (very sweet).

Definitely worth hitting up but like most sit-down restaurants in Luang Prabang, felt pretty expensive after a month of cheap eats in Thailand!!

Best food I had so far in Laos. - Edit

The vegan baguette!! OMG you won't regret ordering this one. It was definitely the best meal I had so far in Laos.
Their menu has good amount of clearly labeled vegan options. Perfect if you're looking for a place serving Western food without having to worry about explaining veganism.

Pros: Healthy vegan options , Clearly labeled

Comfortable space with good food - Edit

I tried the three vegan options available at Novelty Cafe: a cous cous salad, a vegetable sandwich, and Auvergne toast. The dishes were quite good and the staff was attentive. It is pricey by Luang Prabang local standards, but still quite affordable compared to back home (in NYC).

Pros: Nice Space, Confortable, Attentive Staff

Expensive but tasty - Edit

This was an expensive place to eat but the food was good although the green salad was very oily. We got the vegan baguette and the vegan cous cous salad. Both of these came with green salads on the side. The cous cous was the highlight, very nice flavours and olive oil came on the side (which we didn't bother adding). Baguette was 37k kip and salad was 43k kip.

Pros: Tasty food

Cons: Expensive, oily, few vegan items

vegan baguette is the star - Edit

Attractive looking cafe in good location with friendly resident woofer, George. Menu has a number of vegan options but the vegan baguette is the stand out! Sadly there's only the predictable 'seasonal fruit' on offer for desert. Prone to power cuts!

Pros: number of vegan dishes , vegan baguette is awesome , items clearly identified on easy read menu

Cons: limited vegan desert option

Nice place, a bit pricey - Edit

As mentioned before the vegan baguette is very good, although I found it (and the salad it comes with) too oily. I guess the eggplant absorbs lots of oil when cooked. The owner is so sweet and awesome!

Wonderful! - Edit

Vegan baguette was A+
Good portions
The owner is a sweetheart
George the dog is super cute
If it's a hot day, they also make a perfect Pimm's Cup

Lots of Vegetarian options, but there could be more vegan options in my opinion.
