“Went here every day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

My friend and I went here each day we were in HCMC, and I'm sure we could have returned a dozen time more. We never ordered the same thing, and I'm sure we didn't eat more than a third of the cakes on the menu. One small note: the chocolate cakes are rich and heavy, and we enjoyed the fruit ones much more in the heat.

Thank you for your great comment. We are glad that you have appeciated the fruit cakes. Chocolate cakes generally are heavy but we make them like that for reproducing the real taste of these cakes.
We hope that you will come back to enjoy our future new products and to have the pleasure to meet you again.

“Great spot for breakfast in District 1”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We stayed at the Lavender Hotel just a few doors down and didn't enjoy the hotel breakfast very much. Une Journee a Paris was an excellent substitute for hotel breakfast! Whether you just want a simple croissant, eggs, or something a little more substantial - Journee has it for you! My favorite was pork rillette on a croissant. Not heavy or light - just right for a quick breakfast in the morning. If you're walking around District 1, be sure to pick up a few macaroons for your walk. We especially enjoyed the surprise pastries after requesting the check!

“Quick and fresh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Came in for breakfast while waiting for hotel check-in after flight to Saigon. AC, fresh bread, great coffee and dessert options. Toilets were clean, up a ahort staircase. Nice place to chill out (literally) and enjoy some refreshments before plunging back to the Saigon traffic.

“Would highly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The last time I had a proper pain au chocolat amande was in Paris, the ones here were just as good! This patisserie became our daily habit during our stay in HCMC as our hotel was just around the corner. Breads are fresh and delicious, try the croque monsieur which is made with quality ingredients and comes with a side tomato salad topped with a wonderful dressing. Or enjoy the crossants with your iced white coffee. Service is great and everything we had was wonderful.

“A little bit of France in the middle of HCM”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

What a surprise to find this little place of heaven.
We are French living in Shanghai so it's very pleasant to find a little bit of our country when traveling, so we couldn't just pass by, so we went there 3 times.
First to have some chocolate macaron, then for a real espresso and hot chocolate, according to my daughter one of the best she'd ever tried and another trip there for a quick lunch (sandwiches, desserts and coffees)
Everything was perfect.
I even bought some jams and was able to try one and some vanilla. The owner gave me plenty of explanations on how to use the vanilla and how to even make sugar vanilla out of it.
This place is fabulous, and I recommend everyone who wants to have a real coffee, not the ones from the coffee store chains, and some pastry to just stop there and relax.
