L’Herbanyste’s mission is to promote the wellbeing of our community and planet by providing an oasis where like-minded people can escape to support healthy choices, ethical and sustainable practices. Opened recently, in June 2019, L’Herbanyste has soon become a new favorite spot for its neighborhood thanks to its beautiful decoration and plant-based food that satisfies every taste preference.
Re-nourish on creative, lovingly made, fresh vegetarian dishes. L’Herbanyste’s produce is seasonal from around the area, often picked only days before being served and they use only natural sweeteners and minimal oils. Almost everything served is made from scratch in their kitchens to ensure freshness and quality.
Au Parc is inside the charming colonial building with no frills, original cement tiles, bare brick walls and old window frames, ideally located half-way between the Reunification Palace and Notre-Dame cathedral. The space has a peaceful, relaxed feel to it and is a perfect stop on a busy day around the city.
Au Parc features Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine, good, affordable wines, Italian coffee and 100% natural freshly prepared juices and smoothies. Mediterranean here doesn’t just mean Spanish, French and Italian delicacies, it’s Mediterranean in the wider sense; Turkey, Cyprus, Lebanon, Syria, Israel, Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Greece and more.
Café Marcel is serving a new menu of homemade and fresh breakfast favorites, as well as petite assiettes (small plates). Taking inspiration from the sun-filled, breezy cafes of southern France, Café Marcel is set to attract crowds of foodies and photographers from sunrise to sunset.
For breakfast, Café Marcel has created a menu of classics with small twists and meticulous execution, while also somehow remaining affordable. If Instagram is any indication, the star of the show is the Avocado Tartines (VND 150,000)—don’t miss it when you come to Marcel. For those who aren’t content to choose from a menu, Marcel offers a build-your-own breakfast: start with your preferred style of eggs and bread, add sides from sautéed mushrooms to smoked salmon, and choose one of four sauces.
Whoever said that Breakfast is the most important meal of the day must have come from Australia. Featuring wholesome, healthy, filling foods, Australian breakfasts are not merely the food we love but a symbol of the lifestyle we aspire to. Besides the effortlessly hip, health-conscious and casually stylish brunch foods, it’s coffee that the Australians take seriously. Godmother Bake & Brunch is proud to be the first ever in Vietnam to distribute the famous Axil Coffee beans and trained by Taing brothers themselves, the men behind the success of The Workshop Bros Melbourne.
What else, you don’t want to miss out on the delicious delicacies from the award-winning pastry chef Narae Kim, whose talent has been already been confirmed by the clientele of Park Hyatt Saigon. Godmother is bringing back the artisan pastries, made with true passion and premium ingredients.
Decorated in the greatest of Paris Bistro tradition, The Refinery is a lovely French Brasserie and Wine Bar located in Saigon’s old Manufacture d’Opium. Tucked away in a quiet and secluded courtyard, The Refinery offers a vast, covered outdoor terrace with comfy whicker armchairs to relax the day away as well as a tastefully decorated indoor space.
While the bistro serves excellent food – do not leave without trying the “Filet Mignon” – the wine selection is superb with 17 Old and New World wines on offer by the glass. On weekends, a very popular brunch is offered (bookings recommended) with a complimentary chocolate fountain and a dedicated kids’ corner – complete with a “home nanny” – delights children and adults alike.
