Why La Rotonde Cafeteria is special ?

La Rotonde is a classy place in Saigon, and located directly in the center. La Rotonde is a good example of the rising nostalgia among Saigon's young for their city's disappearing past. Set upstairs in a corner colonial era shophouse, with high ceilings and huge windows, it's bathed in natural light. The cool decor includes local antiques, som nicely chosen Indochina-style artwork and furnishings mixing industrial and deco styles. People may find old tables in Vietnamese style set up next to Western-style couches a pleasant harmony and not a contrast. If you want to espace from the inside lights and AC from your office/school whatever, you should go there.


How to get to La Rotonde Cafeteria?

La Rotonde Cafe is very close to Bitexco Financial Tower and Le Cong Kieu Street. You can take a taxi to reach the place.

Tips for you

  • People coming to the shop are foreigners, white collar workers and even celebrities finding a place for a photo shoot, so it is quite crowded during lunch time. Night time is perfect for a date or talk.
  • Those coming to the café should try the daily-changing lunch special served in traditional Vietnamese style.
  • The food specials are on a small board to choose instead of a menu.
    What to know
  • Cafe is on the second floor and entrance is down the side street just a little - don't be tricked into going to the Khanh Kasa below.

My friend brought me to this restaurant because I haven't really tried authentic Vietnamese food and I wanted to eat something aside from Pho. I had Bun Thit Nuong, which she recommended, and I enjoyed eating it! (Good thing that the leaves didn't taste as strong as I thought because there was a certain flavor that I just couldn't take). I love that the spring rolls had shrimps inside and the noodles were cooked just nice. The place is also beautiful! I love the exterior but especially the interiors - the colors, the walls, the furniture, the small details. Everything about the place is perfect! (For the staircase, I guess most restaurants on such small buildings are the same)

Great ambience with a lot of natural light. Stumbled upon it on a lazy Sunday morning. The ice cream is some of the best I've had in Vietnam. It is also surprisingly good value for money.
