This use to be my go-to restaurant, as I did/do like the ambiance, music and general comfort of the place. This said, the food has taken a substantial drop in the past few months. Removing their specials that added good value was simply horrendous, as the food quality (mediocre) simply does not compensate for it. Also, serving pancakes without syrup... More

The restaurant is no longer a charity. New owner and new employees work very hard at giving the best service. New owner still employs disabled employees, but can't hire as many as before. Owner and employees took time to talk to us and made us feel very welcome and happy to be there. This is a different place from the... More

I don't understand how this place has such good reviews. We just wanted big, average food before a flight but it was awful! Food.... 2/5 Egg and bacon bagel for 70k was ok, cheap uk cafe standard. Muesli was powdery and cheap and turned up dry - no milk or even a spoon! Had to find the server to ask... More

Had a bah mi fish and bah mi original (pork); fish was ok, pork was average, not a lot of meat. Also had pork skewers, meat was dry, wouldn't recommend it. The tamarind juice was nice, friendly staff. Maybe an overrated place, so hoping it's for a good cause.

The food here was excellent and the staff were so accommodating, they even changed my order for me as it had mayo on it. It's all for a good cause too so worth a visit, especially if you're in this area of the world and are craving American pancakes (as most in Hoi An/Da Nang are more crepes than pancakes... More

I read the reviews of Bread of Life and eagerly went for dinner with our family on holidays in Da Nang. A break for the family with some comfort food after 3 weeks of travelling. I couldn't see the value. I had a US$6 American burger that was pretty ordinary.. ..and the fries just the good side of burnt. I... More

a pleasant and welcoming place to eat, sit and relax. The menu has a good selection including Mexican, pizza and burgers. A good selection of drinks are reasonable prices, I especially like the vanilla chai tea.

I was in Danang for six weeks and I went back to Bread of Life to visit and see if it was as good as I remember from my previous Trips. I was not disappointed one bit, in fact, I found the restaurant to be thriving with all of its core values intact. I was fortunate enough to have met... More

Very famous shop for their home-made bread. Indeed not bad but not too surprising either. We went there for lunch and very few people there, maybe would become busier during dinner time.

Description
Bread of Life has been serving quality, fresh and authentic Western food since 2005 and belongs to Jean-Luc Briastre a Frenchman who loves Vietnam.
I bought Bread of Life Restaurant (BoL Restaurant) in 2015. My restaurant was founded by American missionaries to provide work to the hearing impaired and more recently, widowed mothers, and retired people with no pension.
Bread of Life Restaurant operates like any other restaurant; our income depends entirely on our business. We are proud that we produce quality meals and service while also providing employment to persons who normally would not be considered employable.
We thank you so much for helping us to continue to offer employment to our special population and employees, as well as convivial meeting place for Western ex-pats Vietnam.
