Cute place, and it's also part of an organization that seems to be a good cause. I ordered the Sapa trout fish and chips, super delicious, and as I mentioned in the title they give a pretty good ketchup portion (so rare in Asia)! Service was a bit slow and seats kind of uncomfortable, but overall a very pleasant experience.

Great cafe working with a great cause! The cafe supports the local Sapa O'Chau school which helps educate the young children of Sapa! Be sure to ask them about their trekking and homestay trips!
