Cool place - but someone, please kill the DJ

Food/service is pretty good, view of the city is great - it's cool place to sit and do some work, though the music is nauseating (Rihanna, maroon 5 and Ellie Goulding etc on rotation). Bring some good headphones. You have been warned...

L'Usine make good on their name and serve Western-style breakfast and lunch in a factory-like setting. Some of their tables are parts of old manufacturing machinery turned into furniture. They have a nicely designed, English menu, try their Eggs Benedict or the Brekki Burger. Staff are generally friendly and fast and the overall atmosphere is very cozy. This is one... More

Love this place but it has become too noisy as there are so many guests there. But the cappuccino is the best in Vietnam i think. The food is good too!

Good location in the heart of the city with a trendy atmosphere. Friendly staff will greet you with a smile and provides efficient service. My favourites are beef lasagna & steak sandwich. Must try.

As a local of the city, I've visited this place more times than I can count. When it was first starting out, it was mediocre hut with the influx of customers, the quality has raised but so have the prices. Don't let the single dollar sign put you off, tjis place is not cheap! But a lovely atmosphere and certain... More

L'usine took Saigon with a storm a few years back and was the undisputed hotspot for lunch or coffee. Super trendy setting (either of the locations) with industrial-type furniture and bright and open planning. One of few places in Saigon that serve up a proper ristretto.

The decor, setting & ambiance of the cafe is top-notch. The food is fresh, healthy & not to mention extremely tasty. They have a small store attached to the cafe & its a good place to grab some classy souvenirs.

Only one restaurant was better in HCMC but this was fantastic, super hip place, cool location. We sat out on the Balcony for Valentines day and had an amazing view of the Opera House. Food was great, service was great, price was fine for almost fine dining.

It wouldn't be out of place in Hinton. To get there you leave the main road, walk through an alley of shops and up some rather torrid looking stairs. There are a number of cafes set above the shops below. Once in think old large factory building, open plan shop with prices more akin to London than Vietnam. Mix of... More
