This was a brilliant little bakery near our hotel. We had lovely croissants, sandwiches and drinks here for breakfast. A great NGO giving back to the local community. Highly recommend.

Coffee, pastries, sandwiches, bread and more. We'll worth a quick detour from Ben Nghé Street. Fully recommended.

The cafes food was good. My wife had a ham, cheese, lettuce and tomato on a mini baguette made fresh in the bakery. I had a tuna baguette sandwich with lettuce and tomato. Both sandwiches were tasty, fresh and good to eat. We both had...iced lattes. Service was good. The really nice thing about this bakery is that disadvantaged youth from the area work in this Boulangerie/restaurant.More

We had lunch here several times, the sandwiches and cakes are fantastic, friendly staff and good prices. Great for lunch, a quick snack or a take away pastry.

I wanted a cheesecake made for a special birthday and who better to ask than a French Boulanger? The cake was awesome. Thank you from a happy customer

Hue is "choc-a-bloc" with little cafes and bars. What makes this one worth patronising? Well,this place helps the disadvantaged youth of Hue by teaching them the culinary and customer service skills that are in increasing demand in Hue's burgeoning tourist industry. The downstairs looks like...a million other coffee bars, with high chairs set against a high counter. There is a tall fridge showing off the cakes that are available to buy and made by the bakery that is also part of this scheme. The menu details what they are and also shows a limited list of available breakfasts, light snacks and beverages. There is an upstairs room with tables and chairs for those who don't like the set up downstairs. When I visited I was just looking for a place to pause in my exploration of Hue. I ordered a tiramisu and an iced coffee. I had intended to have a black coffee with cold milk because I was really enjoying the rich flavours of Vietnamese coffee but something got lost in translation which was probably more down to my poor signing skills. When the staff found out that I was English, I became the subject of the charming,halting English language skills of the young people behind the counter. They were friendly,polite and agreeable in their inquiries as to whether I was enjoying my food. I did not receive the common, insincere badgering that one can get elsewhere. The iced coffee was truly refreshing and the tiramisu was as good as anything I have had in Italy. So, here we have a place where the service is prompt,the price of food is excellent value for money and the staff are really friendly. If I was to stay in Hue for any length of time, I would be using this place for regular "afternoon coffee and cake". I'd probably look like the Michelin Man by the end of my stay !!More

I had the french breakfast and chose the very tasty pain au chocolat-banane and the fruit salad was superb (and huge !). This great little place also happens to be helping to support training local kids to become bakers who then go on to work...in 4/5* hotels or even open their own bakeries (12 and counting!). So impressive, cannot recommend highly enough.More

Really nice quiet place just off the main road. Had an upstairs with open roof covered area. Great coffee and great chocolates cakes. We had a tart and donut. The donut was only 20,000! Also, this cafe is a school that trains young Vietnamese people...from poor backgrounds over 20 months to get help starting within hospitality so you’re helping a good cause too!More

We ordered a birthday cake here for our daughter whilst in Hue. We really had no idea what we ordered but were incredibly impressed when we collected the cake the next day. Not only did it look amazing but it tasted even better! And it...only cost 300 000Vnd, so much cheaper than home! Their coconut macaroons and chocolate croissants are pretty damn good as well. Check them out I'd you're in Hue, you won't be disappointed!More

Love the basis of the restaurant helping disadvantaged young people learn the skill of baking. Loved the ham baguettes, always so fresh and delicious. The staff are very friendly and it is a nice place to relax and have lunch and a coffee/juice.

We went there with my boys and my husband. They have an adorable small terrace on the upper floor. The girls who work there are extremely nice and friendly. The croissant, the pain au chocolat and the baguette were delicious. So was the coffee ,...as it usually is in Vietnam. They also have quiches and a variety of desserts that look very tasty.More

I may have compared them unfairly against French Boulangeries elsewhere, but unfortunately this is the worst I’ve had yet. The Danish were less than crispy and the quiche was bland. There isn’t many other places you can come for these, so unless you’re dying to...get a French fix, you’d probably not want to waste your calories here.More
