Why La Fenetre Soleil is special ?
La Fenetre Soleil is a chic, moody, Western-style coffee shop that serves all your favourites such as muffins, toast, lattes, cappuccinos and other usual café treats. Especially popular with tourists from Japan, Le Fenetre Soleil is one of Saigon's most charming little hideaways. The whimsical décor is not so much old school as it is old. La Fenetre Soleil literally means "window to the sun". This shines through in the decor as it is enveloped by large French windows that flood the outer areas in light. The menu features a interesting combination of international food. Favorites among guests are the California Roll and the Duck with Djion Mustard. However the most raved-about culinary treat is the divine Passion Fruit Crepe.
How to get to La Fenetre Soleil?
Le Fenetre Soleil is located on Ly Tu Trong Street, a short walk from The Independence Palace. You can also take a taxi or xe om to get to the place.

Tips for you
In general, I have to say I like the ambiance the place offers. The seating arrangements - the atmosphere all great. Not sure if the furniture should have the maintenance as it has but that might be the idea of the style... some of it is quite worn out... (which describes the but in the title)... We had Indonesian food and just staying for long time in Bali and Indonesia I have to say I was surprised to get such decent if not really good Indonesian food in Vietnam. I had the Soto Ayam and it was delicious. Also the other food we tried great without a doubt. My only other concern - the three times I was there - never more than 3 tables have been patronized the same time. So, it lacks a bit of guest ambiance as there is not much life around. Having said this, if I want Indo Food in Vietnam... I will surely go there again to enjoy a great classy yummy Soto Ayam!!!!!
Unfairly beat up in the reviews. Food is totally decent if on the expensive side. 5-8.30pm 50% off ALL alcohol goes a long way to bring the prices back down to earth. Nice atmosphere.
