“French Quality Food”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

This is primarily a small bakery, rather than a restaurant, but it excels at both. The menu is limited, but everything on it is prepared to the highest standard. I especially like the sandwiches, which are made with freshly-baked bread, and the breakfast items.

I've bought several varieties of their bread loaves and pastries, and found them excellent. In particular, a large (plenty for two people), almond and raisin "Danish".

Ho Chi Minh City has several bakeries with more-or-less French themes, but the others seem to cater mainly to local Saigon tastes: i.e., the offerings contain an overpowering excess (to my taste) of sugar. Une Journee a Paris, on the other hand, concentrates on flavor rather than sweetness.

“Not bad, but not great...just good”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

Tried the pistachio macaroons as per the advice of another user, they were to me, somewhat tasteless...was expecting better.

The hazelnut cake was good, a little on the rich side, but good.

The atmosphere was cold to my personal taste...just blue.

The staff however were very attentive so thats a plus. The price was fair and as a parting gift they offered a small cake puff ball thing, which I declined, but the gesture was appreciated.

The menu is extensive so if I were to come back i'll definitely try other foods they have to offer.

“Everything is just fine”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed the place, food and all. Yes. They had all the elements of a general restaurant. Everything was just fine though, if you were starving. For me, I often expect something else more personal and impressive.
