For those from Sydney, this place resembles a trendy cafe in Paddington. Very hard to find, (across from the opera house and up some back stairs) but worth doing. We thought so, dining here twice. Try the pull away pork baguette or any of their range of baguettes. The mango smoothies are also sublime.

This is one of those places I really love in Hcm. Difficult to be spotted but very trendy. On the other side don't expect Vietnamese prices!!!!

We had such a great lunch at L'Usine on Dong Khoi that we decided to go to their Le Loi location for lunch the next day. Both places are so lovely with awesome French atmosphere. I highly recommend the pork, pumpkin and potato hash (it's only on the menu at the Dong Khoi location)- a waiter was bringing it to... More

The word is definitely out and during peak lunch hours this place is usually packed and busy. However, it seems most people prefer to be seated in the main (second door). If you are looking to visit and have a few less people around you then as soon you get to the the top of the stairs on the 2nd... More

L'Usine was a hidden jem tucked away on one of the side streets. You have to be paying attention if you want to find it, but once you do... WOW. There are a few vegetarian options on the menu which I was happy to find! I went with the vegetable baguette and had no regrets!

We usually go for brunch. I love that they put a good portion of bacon on the side of their Brek-of-Day (Poached Egg, Spinach with garlic and Bacon), one of my favourites. Love the ambience, old, new, rough, modern, soft touches, mix decor, in an unexpected setting... It's like being in Europe, eating nicely prepared food at a very reasonable... More

Definitely love the design and the overall atmosphere. A place I won't mind hanging out sipping Vietnamese coffee (they use the same bean as the most basic ones at Trung Nguyen whereas Trung Nguyen has several higher tier ones in addition) and do my work. Love the stores and window shopping since I don't love the high price as much.... More

Dear Websoup, Thank you for visiting our store/s. You are right about the extra import duty it can get very expensive for some products. Understandably you complain about the pork banh mi and as it says on the menu is the way we always serve it , in a baguette, unless a customer requests another variety of bread that we... More

Just a nice place with a good atmosphere to be in with friends - well decorated, good music, good food (a bit overpriced in my opinion, and they never really change their menu), wifi, desserts plus a store in the back with unique items. Can't complain, a good coffee too.

Nice place with lovely decoration and a cool shop. Nice food but the service needs to improve big time. They do not come to see if you have finished your food or want something else. We actually had to get up and walk to the counter to order our dessert. There was a girl that was nice and had a... More

There are 02 L'usine, and I have been in one on Dong Khoi st. Now I want to visit the other as well. In order to review it, I will focus on: - Style: it follows the style of Western countries, in industrial era, combined with vintage things. Often there are 2 places in each branch: cafe and shop (clothes,... More
