Tous les jours meaning every day in french is a bakery chain well implanted in Vietnam, notably in majors cities like Hanoi or HCMC.
Unlike traditional Vietnamese bakery, Tous les jours is very reminiscent of a french bakery crossed with a coffee store. You can actually buy some croissant and drink your coffee in the store.
This upscale franchise for bakery is very well implanted in big cities, where the demand for high quality bakery is present. Well implanted in Hanoi we tried the store located in Phố Huế Hai Ba Trung.
Most customers are usually people who are accustomed to good bakery, perhaps people who already travel or lived abroad, or simply people who knows how to enjoy these delicatessen.
The store looks way better than the average bakery like Anh Hoa. This particular store actually looks more like a New York City building with visible red bricks rather than a french traditional bakery, which is a good thing, since you have a very beautiful view of the streets from the first floor.
As a bakery, Tous les jours obviously offer some diversity of bread. We personally tried the rye bread and the bread with seeds. Both were delicious though slightly different than French bread. This bread was more light and soft to the touch.
We bought these breads to makes classic mayonnaise sandwiches with salad, tomatoes and ham and it was delicious. We also used an oven to make the bread crispy again after sitting all night in the fridge. That is usually the way to do it in Vietnam, unless you buy it freshly made in the morning.
Tous les jours also offer some salty treat almost like Fougasse or Pizza or Croque Madame. We didn’t have a chance to try since we were not here for dinner or lunch but for an afternoon Goûter. They definitely looked yummy.
They also have the classic bakery like Croissant ou pain au raisin. Unfortunately, we didn’t see pain au chocolat or chocolatine. In Vietnam is is actually hard to find real chocolate for some reasons. On the other hand they have some unique specialities you can’t find somewhere else like a sort of almond feuilleté and others slightly sweet bakery.
You obviously have the classic sandwiches, or triangles should I say. Very reminiscent of what you would find in some countries but instead of a baguette using pain de mie or soft bread.
Tous les jours also bake some birthday cakes which we had the opportunity to try for my wife’s birthday. We ordered a Strawberry one and I have to say it taste way better than the classic cake you can buy here for 250,000 vnd.
Like I said before, this place is also a place to sit down, relax and enjoy your food, that’s why they also offer drinks from coffee to smoothie.
This time was the second time we went to Tous les jours and we were invited to an all you can eat nướng. That’s why we couldn’t order as much as we wanted.
The croissant and the sweet almond feuilleté were a bit old, meaning just a tad chewy. Perhaps they were from the morning and we went in the afternoon so it’s understandable.
The location in Pho Hue Hai Ba Trung have a beautiful view of the street and a cross section where you can see the bikes come and go.
We went in this bakery multiple times and the first time was a very good surprise for us. We were just walking in the street famous for having a lot of clothes store.
The tea where handed to us later by a waiter and the quality was good too. The peach were actually sirop can peach with a good size much better than highland coffee in my opinion.
8.0 out of 10
Overall Tous les jours is I believe, the best bakery in town. It’s hard to have a better diversity of delicatessen in other stores and the quality is much better than the average store. Even the shelf looks so much better. The taste is almost like in Europe or France.
The place looks amazing, and the second floor have a beautiful view over the streets. The prices are a tad pricier than in other bakery but it honestly worth the price in my opinion, especially if you are sitting for some time inside.
We had a baby to hold so we couldn’t stay more than an hour, but this is definitely my kind of place to hang out in.
The only other bakery I would recommend would perhaps be Gao Bakery & Coffee which have one of the best sourdough bread in the city.
