pho is comfort in a bowl. every vietnamese child grew up having their family’s own version of this hearty noodle soup. the rich broth usually boils for several hours and the distinctive aromatics of charred onions, ginger, cinnamon and star anise linger in the air. it is then served with flat rice noodles, toppings (usually beef/chicken) and a load of fresh herbs. with căntin, we hope to bring this kind of vietnamese comfort to you.




in asia, food brings together whole villages. with căntin, we celebrate these countless family gatherings where everyone gets  together at one table to enjoy home cooked food. with our communal table we want căntin to be a place where our guests get together and eat like we do with our families. căntin is authentic, uncomplicated and sometimes a bit loud. a real vietnamese experience.



the whole thing started with a self-improvised food-bike in 2018. with her purple banh mi bike, anh was rolling up and down bern city, selling vietnamese banh mi sandwiches. what followed next was a chain of serendipitous events, a "being at the right place at the right time"-kind of story. we moved from the street into a pop up bar and finally were given the chance to open our very own pop up. but we did not want to stop there. our passion for hosting people to have delicious food motivated us to look for a permanent home. and so we did. we can't wait to have a great time with you all at căntin!
