If you're guidebook raves about this place then toss it because it's ten years out of date. Clearly someone who knew what they were doing set this place up and is long gone from the scene. Both times I visited there were no baguettes or any fresh bread of any sort available. The second time I went in quite early... More

Restaurant \ small coffee cafe we crossed by accident and were surprise at nighttime. On the first round the chocolate was too sweet even for children but the tea with local lemongrass is recommended and the excellent Vietnamese coffee served with sweetened condensed milk was a nice surprise for coffee lovers. Surprising ,but logical in Vietnam, dessert - banana spring... More

Maybe because it was the end of the day but it was really disappointing. we ordered the croissant and some kind of a coconut cake (which we thought was with almonds and crean but the guy there didnt speak much english). The croissant looked as if it was heated in the microvawe (and tasted like that as well). Give it... More

We go there for breakfast. Ordered coffee, tea, quiche Lorraine, croissant and carrot cake. Coffee was good and quiche Lorraine too (not like in France, but ok). Carrot cake was the surprise: very tasty. I recommend it. Service is friendly but slow.

Wanted to find somewhere to have a quiet tea/coffee and a cake, buiscuit or croissant. The coffee was ok, the tea was cold, and to top it all off they charged 45,000 dong for a stale chocolate croissant... I'm not sure if this is the price they always charge, or if they just decided to opportunistically con us because we... More

While I admire social enterprises unfortunately the food and service at Baguette and Chocolat Cafe was terrible. Instead of a baguette I strangely received a toasted sandwich (I think they had just run out of baguettes). My husband did get a baguette, the bread was undercooked the filling was just ok. Were very over priced for the quality. In addition... More

I was staying at the Sapa Dragon Hotel just up the street and noticed this place. So after finishing my hike for the day and freshening up at my hotel I came here for a coffee and pastry every day. The quality of their deserts is very high, the service is friendly, and they atmosphere is pleasant. And it felt... More

This was the cutest little bakery/cafe, and a portion of its proceeds are donated to a disaster relief NGO. Free wifi and quaint atmosphere as well.

We chose this cafe after hearing about their support for local charity but were sadly disappointed after waiting 15 minutes for our take away sandwich. It then turned out to be pretty soggy.

When I was in Sapa 10 years ago this was one of my hangouts primarily because it was one of the only coffee places in Sapa. We returned this year so naturally I wanted to check it out. My friend had a chocolate croissant and was disappointed. She gets these everywhere we go and this was one of the worse... More
