Never fails to please

What we say: 4 stars

They offer a broad variety of cooked breakfasts, homemade soups and create-your-own sandwiches, and sets of pizza or lasagne with salad. The specialty coffees and baked goodies are downright addictive, particularly the mango crumble. Attentive staff, indoor/outdoor seating, local newspapers, and free WiFi secure Joma's place as the most popular cafe in town among Westerners. While its prices are higher than a standard Lao cafe, it employs and trains under-privilieged youth and sells Lao-grown fair-trade coffee. There are two locations in Vientiane and they also have cafes in Luang Prabang and Hanoi. The Vientiane Phontan branch has a children's play area, making it a good place for families to come and enjoy a meal or a treat. Joma does delivery and their menus are available online.
