Saffron Coffee

Saffron is a rarity: they actually have good coffee. Almost unheard of in Southeast Asia (excluding Indonesia). It came as a recommendation to try their banana mocha frappuccino. No thanks. But I’ll take a coffee. Regular. Delicious. I had to buy two bags of beans and even that may not be enough.

They are a typical cafe in Luang Prabang, by all appearances. Open entrance, open air. Their menu included the typical espresso drinks and blends. And they added their own mixes, hence the banana mocha. I still sampled someone else’s order and it actually is not bad. Note: this is coming from someone who actually doesn’t like bananas.

The cafe also offers a decent selection of sandwiches and paninis. I highly recommend the roasted chicken panini, very very yummy.

A shop that sells good products, and promotes fair trade? What’s not to like?
