L'Usine was a welcome haven to get of the streets of Saigon,( its great to see that the smokers have to go out side) From having breakfast and lunch there a few times, even when i came back from Hanoi i went straight there for a meal. Well priced (very cheap) meals that were to good to eat. I would... More

Having only tried the coffee and the banana bread, my view is limited, but I must say this place was amazing. The thinly sliced banana bread was spot on – maybe the best I have had – while the coffee was great too. Downside: it's expensive.

L'usine is a very cool, trendy French style Cafe/Restaurant/Store located in Dist. 1 just across from the Opera House. Tricky to find as you have to via an alley and then up a flight of stairs which might make you think I'd rather not but that would be a mistake. One side is more a cafe/coffee shop opening up to...

I wasn't sure if I was in a hip place in Portland, San Francisco or Hcmc! The food is amazing ( croque monsieur was the best I had!), decor was urban/cool.

The place is hip and cosy. Good coffee....bakery is fine...sandwiches are good but cake is alright. But definitely a place to visit and enjoy seeing hip and cool people. The place also serve food and one part they make like a small clothes and designer shop.

Like a cafe and lifestyle boutique straight from Australia. Very trendy and upscale. Their food is so-so for the price but you can't beat the ambience.

This stylish place is located in the hot spot downtown of HCMC. Right next to the union square, opera and the expensive hotels (like Rex and Continental), it is a nice place to look around the shop and enjoy the atmosphere. Compared to the other branch at Le Loi, this l’Usine is focussing on the shop and not so much... More

After seeing a performance at the Opera House, we were given a coupon for a free drink. We chose the closest option located around the corner, down an alley and up a flight of stairs. We had two glasses of the house Cabernet which was very good. We just wanted a light snack, so we shared a huge smoked salmon... More

Nestled inside a old rustic building is this hidden gem. I alway come here every time I visit HCMC. It's like visiting a historic French Provincial shop in the heart of Saigon. The café's menu has changed over the years to adapt to the changing local society and for the better too. The cafe also has a retail clothing and... More
