Bakeries in Hanoi

Hanoi is known for its rich food culture, but aside from phở, bánh mì, and a plethora of other unique dishes to munch on, the capital city is also home to no shortage of bakeries to satisfy your sweet tooth.

From modern dessert cafes with chic décor to home businesses, here are 12 bakeries in Hanoi with tarts, cheese cakes, and more unique cake flavors such as bubble tea cakes and salted egg sponge cakes to appease even the most demanding of cake lovers.

1. S’Patisserie – ideal location right next to the Hoàn Kiếm Lake

An established name among Hanoi’s bakeries is S’Patisserie, a cozy little space with cushioned seats and light background music right next to the busy Hoàn Kiếm Lake. Grab a seat next to the window, and you’’ll get a clear view of the lake and all the busy activities outside – making this a nice place to spend a quiet afternoon with a book, a warm cup of coffee, and a slice of cake.

Early in the morning, the shop offers breakfast sets with options ranging from toasted bread with fried eggs to baguettes with sausages (VND125,000, ~USD5.38), served with either fresh fruits or salad, as well as a drink.

The cakes and tarts come after 10AM, and they come in a wide variety. We were impressed by the cheesecake (VND50,000, ~USD2.15) with its fluffy texture and creamy flavor, though if you want something lighter, the coconut cake (VND40,000, ~USD1.72) is a solid option.

The shop also offers an extensive drink menu of coffee, juices, and mocktails. You might be interested in the tiramisu coffee (VND65,000, ~USD2.80), which complements the taste of coffee with egg and cream cheese.

Owned by a French pâtissier who’s been in the business for over a decade, O’Douceurs French Pastry & Bakery has been a popular destination for those looking for authentic French dessert since its opening in 2014.

The bakery has a pleasant interior design with warm red walls and wooden tables bathed in golden lighting, while on the upper floors are balconies where you can look out to a park and to the Hanoi Opera House – a famous landmark of the city.

When it comes to cakes, the raspberry tart (VND49,000, ~USD2.11) is a must-try. The pastry is delightfully crusty, and the taste of the raspberry filling hits just the right spot while not being too sweet. With every bite, you can feel its caramel-like texture melting in your mouth. 

Order your cake with a pot of mixed fruit tea (VND65,000, ~USD2.80), and you’ve got yourself a relaxing afternoon tea session.

Just around the corner from O’Douceurs is Pablo Cheesetart, another favorite hangout space among Hanoi cake lovers thanks to its delicious cakes and bright chic décor, wooden flooring, white walls adorned by framed pictures, and tall glass windows looking out to the streets outside.

You’ll also find here a wide assortment of mousse cake flavors. The lemon cheese cake (VND48,000, ~USD207/slice) combines the light, refreshing sour taste of lemon with the creamy flavor of cheese for a treat that any cheese lover will love to sink their teeth into.

Starting out as a humble store established by a Japanese baker in 2005, Poeme is now a major brand with 9 outlets all over Hanoi. Over the years, it has become the go-to place for many Hanoians to quench their cake cravings due to its accessibility and quality products.

Cakes here are touted as having only a third of the amount of calories compared to a regular cake, and they’re much cheaper compared to many other bakeries as well, which means you won’t have to feel guilty later when you look at your wallet or your bathroom scale.

There are over 150 cake flavors here to tickle your taste buds, among them the watermelon mousse (VND18,000, ~USD0.77) is also a treat to the eyes as it’s made to resemble an actual watermelon slice with layers of red jelly and tapiocas acting as the watermelon “seeds”.

Meanwhile, any Vietnamese would probably be interested in trying out the dorayaki (VND18,000, ~USD0.77), our childhood manga friend Doraemon’s favorite snack. If you grew up wondering what these red-bean-filled Japanese pancakes taste like, now’s your chance to find out.

Located on a not-too-busy street near the West Lake, La Cherie is not only a place to grab some delicious desserts, but also a great check-in spot to bring home some nice shots to brighten up your Instagram feed. Its dark green façade adorned by cute flower pots hanging from above looks straight out of a European street corner.

And while you’re here, we recommend trying out the red velvet (VND45,000, ~USD1.94) for its… well, velvety layers that dissolve in your mouth and bath your tongue in a moderate but satisfying sweetness.

If you visit between 6PM to 9PM – except on Sunday – La Cherie also offers dinner sets for VND380,000 (USD16.36), which include a starter, a main course, and a dessert.

Image credit: @susicakee

For those who don’t know, salted egg sponge cake is a well-loved treat among Vietnamese people. With toppings of cheese, salted eggs, and meat floss added on top of a sponge cake, it perfectly combines the creamy, salty, and sweet flavors for a sublime bite.

Today, the dish has become a staple that you can find at pretty much any bakery in Hanoi, but Susi’s Cake’s offerings (VND50,000-VND75,000, ~USD2.16-3.24) are still regarded as one of the best in town. Sponge cakes here are always fresh with a satisfying spongy texture, while the salted eggs are well-seasoned.

9. Jamứt – handmade cake with all-natural ingredients

Image credit: @eo_1125

Jamứt’s name is a clever play on words that combines “Jam” and “mứt” – which also means “jam” in Vietnamese. Despite its name, though, this bakery established by a Japanese mom is known less for its jams, but more for its lovely cakes made using all-natural ingredients, without any preservatives whatsoever.

Image credit: @manh.thenanana

Not to be missed here is the ring cake (VND35,000, ~1.51) featuring an outer layer of soft sponge cake encasing a cold cream filling.

You might also want to try the choux cream (VND35,000, ~1.51) here, which are filled – and I mean literally filled – with cream of many flavors ranging from vanilla to chocolate.

Image credit: @jamut_cake

The bakery has only a few tables for dine-in and mostly sells takeaway, but it’s definitely worth checking out if you are in Hanoi.

Address: 62 Văn Cao Str., Ba Đình District, Hanoi
Opening hours: 10AM-8PM, Daily
Telephone: 0946835500

10. IT Bakery – affordable cakes that cater to local tastes

If you are on a tight budget, IT Bakery is one of the places where you can get the most bang for your buck. The bakery chain has several outlets across Hanoi, which means you can easily find affordable cakes to sate your sugar craving likely just around the corner.

Of course, given the price range, don’t expect anything too fancy. Still, there are many flavors of mousse cakes from mango to raspberry and strawberry, and they come fresh at a modest price of VND25,000 (~USD1.08).

Furthermore, you’ll find here a plethora of cute birthday cakes, from colorful fruit-covered cakes to those with quirky drawings of superheroes or Disney characters. If you want, you can also have your cake custom-made to your liking, and even have your photo printed on the cake.

11. Mia Bakery – cakes with tapioca toppings and bubble tea flavors

Image credit: Tiệm bánh Mia – Homemade Cake

Despite being just a humble bakery in a small alley that only sells takeaways, Mia Bakery has garnered a loyal follower base thanks to its quality products.

Bubble tea aficionados should not miss out on the bubble tea cake (VND100,000, ~USD4.32), Mia’s attempt to integrate the trendy beverage into its cakes. Cut into the outer layer of cheese and tapioca toppings to see the beautiful tea-infused lava filling spill out in a gush of mouth-watering aroma.

Alternatively, the Milo cake (VND100,000, ~USD4.32) with its Milo cereal cover is also worth trying.

And while these cakes might sound like a ton of sugar, they are actually not too sweet at all as the ingredients are kept at a balanced ratio.

Address: 82 Alley 191 Văn Chương, Đống Đa District, Hanoi
Opening hours: 9AM-7PM, Daily
Telephone: 0936493535

12. Panna Cotta Hanoi – hidden gem with great tiramisu

Image credit: @tiembanhpannacotta

Yet another hidden gem among Hanoi’s bakeries is Panna Cotta. Tucked away on the second floor of a residential building in an alley, the place is far from spacious with only 2 tables, but it’s kept clean and cutely designed with flower pots that give it a homey feel.

In terms of cakes here, the titular Panna Cotta (VND25,000, ~USD1.08) is of course worth a try with its extremely smooth texture that melts on your tongue.

Image credit: @tiembanhpannacotta

But we have to give the spotlight to the passion fruit tiramisu. You can get a big one for VND90,000 (~USD3.89), or a smaller, one-person serving for VND35,000 (~USD1.51). In either case, the inner layers’ flavor strikes the perfect balance between the sweetness and bitterness of cocoa and coffee powders, while the sourness of the passion fruit jelly on top serves to complete the taste.

As there is limited space for dine-in at Panna Cotta, most customers opt to order deliveries or takeaways. You can contact the bakery via its telephone number of 0914073866 or its Facebook page to place your order.

Address: 108K4 Alley 6B Thành Công Str., Ba Đình District, Hanoi
Opening hours: 6AM-10PM, Daily
Telephone: 0914073866
