We had breakfast here on our final day in Saigon, based on the recommendation of a friend. The food and drinks are lovely, and it has a great trendy, but relaxed vibe.

We were bought to this restaurant by my colleague in HCMC. My colleague is an Australian guy and he ordered all the food for us. Very trendy decoration with a lovely balcony which is a good place for pre-dinner drink. Good food and good wine, especially the salad and the beef dishes. The restaurant also has a boutique selling international... More

The location is pretty hard to find. It's on a second story of a something like traditional art gallery. In lunch time, it's full with workers. It seems like a popular place for locals and expatriates. The food is good here! And it comes in big portion. The decoration is pretty interesting. I think if I have the chance to... More

Excellent brunch and great place to relax with a coffee in air-conditioned comfort away from the hectic world outside.

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
