Coffee and carrot cake in a calm, unhurried setting. Lovely location overlooking the river. Not an extensive menu but you should find something.

Spent 4 days in Luang Prabang and had the pleasure of drinking great coffee daily at Saffron. Service team were really good and helpful. Banana loaf and coffee butter was super tasty. Business and story behind saffron is worth a visit too.More
