Come dusk, dinner is a fine dining affair, with à la carte and prix-fixe menus featuring dishes that are decidedly French, while the dessert buffet entices with the finest selection in all of Ho Chi Minh City as well as an array of imported cheeses.
In addition to its all-day dining offering, the artful venue serves up afternoon tea in high style daily, presenting selections from across the European continent, including favorites such as Austrian linzer torte, French éclairs and English scones.

3. Latest Recipe Buffet Breakfast-Le Meridien
This all-day-dining venue offers international and Asian cuisine from our extensive a la carte menus or interactive lunch and dinner buffet. Visit Latest Recipe for our Signature Breakfast and Sunday Brunch here
4. The Elbow Room
This place has been around for years and is open early on Sundays for when you’re fangin’ for that post-drinking binge eggs Benedict or stack of blueberry pancakes. The servings are simple here, but consistently very good, which is what you want after hauling your bum out of bed early with one of those wretched hangovers Saigon does so well.
Address: The Elbow Room is at 52 Pasteur St., District 1, HCMC
5. Bunker Bed & Breakfast & Bar
This is an all-day American diner at the end of a small alleyway in the Da Kao neighbourhood of District 1.
Expect hearty American breakies like the “Eggie” with fluffy scrambled eggs, vegies, tomatoes, bacon, hash & toast; or the suitably named The Hangover Cure made from creole scramble with a buttermilk waffle, crispy chicken tenders, bacon & hot honey butter.
Address: Bunker Bed & Breakfast & Bar is at 79/2/1 Phan Ke Binh St., District 1, HCMC
6. Eden Coffee House
Decent breakfasts in particular have been few and far between. Don’t expect anything too fancy, it’s a café on the ground floor of a serviced apartment, but what they do, they do well.
Don’t forget to bring along the mosquito repellent because at this place you’re not the only thing coming along for a good feed.
Address: Eden Coffee House is at 23 Noi, Khu Hung Phuc 1, Tan Phong, Phu My Hung, District 7, HCMC
7. Mekong Merchant
This cafe/restaurant is a must-visit in District 2 and has become an institution since opening in 2004. They have great coffee, juices & breakfasts, which include healthy options and those indulgent ones with eggs and bacon.
A highlight among many at Mekong Merchant is their bread, especially given this city doesn’t actually have a lot of good quality bread. Mekong’s service is excellent, and you have the option to eat outside in the courtyard under a shady tree or inside with air-conditioning.
Address: Mekong Merchant is at 23 Thao Dien St., District 2, HCMC
