Update: If you want the free Brittany Kir cocktail, please email Vincent at firstname.lastname@example.org
Edit: The free cocktail is Brittany Kir, not wine. My mistake.
A couple weeks ago, I was extended an invitation to visit the new La Creperie Restaurant in District 1. La Creperie is the first authentic Brittany French restaurant to open in Saigon. (First 50 people who comment below will get a free Brittany Kir. See details below.)
La Creperie is conveniently located on Le Thanh Ton Street in District 1, walking distance for many people. As the name suggest, they serve savoury galettes, sweet crepes with the best apple cider in town crepes and also offer wines and other drinks. For those that like modern European decors to escape the hectic life of Saigon, this is probably the place to be.
The first floor offers seating on high chairs and tables but my presence is the second floor where it is easier to sit down and relax with your laptops.

On the second floor is the bar and large wine rack. You can try various Brittany wines and ciders.

I tried the apple juice Kerne (non-alcoholic) which was good. I also noticed that they had an espresso machine. Normally I am not a fan of espressos but the one I tried was very good. Worth another visit in my book.

Prices are mid-range and comparable to the now closed Java Cafe. A great place for “coffee shop offices” as well.
La Creperie is located on 17/7 Le Thanh Ton Street in District 1 of Saigon.
