This little, unfancy place makes perhaps the best almond croissants i have ever had - and I have had croissants in many places in France (including Paris) as well as in Vietnam. Wow - just delicious!!

Trung Nam Bakery is a frequent Saturday morning stop for me. Their croissants in many flavors (plain, almond, coconut, raspberry, strawberry, cinnamon, apple, and more) are justifiably famous. There's nothing better than pulling out of their crowded parking lot with a fragrant bakery bag in the passenger seat, fishing a giant croissant out of the bag at the next stop light, and filling your piehole with flaky, buttery goodness as you make the slow trek home on University Avenue. To avoid the sadness of the empty bag, throw in a banh mi sandwich. The bread is superb--the fresh-baked bread has just the right amount of tooth-feel, and the meat and pickled veggies are fresh and crisp. The sandwiches run about $3.95, and the croissants are $2.50/each (with some exceptions). Bring cash, because Trung Nam Bakery doesn't take cards or checks.

What a fun place to visit! The husband and wife team actually appear to enjoy their business and working together. The croissants are without equal. The banh mi sandwiches are delicious. The baguettes are baked exactly as they should be and priced far too low for their quality.

The croissants were the best I have had in a long, long time. I went with my two kids and we split the chocolate, blueberry, raspberry, strawberry, palmiers and a bah-mi.

The service was friendly, the place was clean. The only only complaint is no credit cards. But one bite of yummy strawberry croissant bliss and you can overlook it.

Bakery offers variety of bakery items: croissants, danishes, cookies and bahn mi sandwiches- all of which are EXCELLENT! Downfall is they only accept cash and will often close early due to inventory being sold out. Very popular place to visit for bakery and sandwiches. Recommend visiting early morning before Noon to ensure you can try at least 1-2 bakery items. Definitely order a bahn-mi sandwich. If you've never tried it- you'll be happy your first sample is from Trung Nam French Bakery.
