For pastries that will transport you to Paris, Le Banneton serves up fresh croissants, danishes and all those other buttery, flakey, oh-so-sinful morning bakery treats.
The baguettes are also good, as are the cakes and breakfast and lunch sets. Though not nearly as atmospheric or memorable as Le Banneton in Luang Prabang, one tends to forget such things when sinking their teeth into a second croissant (the last one, I swear!). If pastries and cakes are a bit heavy in the heat of the day, Le Banneton also serves a range of house-made sorbet and ice-cream. This is one of the best bakeries in town.
