Whenever I am in HCMC, I do make it a point to dropby here for a drink or pastry as I always longed for the nice food/drink here. In my recent HCMC trip, I visited two of its stores, one at the opposite corner of Tan Dinh Market (along Hai Bai Trung Road) and the other at Vincom Center at... More

Vietnamese and fusion food. As usual, Vietnamese Coffee is great - the best in the world. Service could be a bit faster, though its very courteous.

I don't usually go to these large chain coffee/tea shops. I need something cold and refreshing and this was all I could find. The queue was very long and I had to wait at least 5 minutes to be served. I had a Peach Lemongrass tea. It was ok with fresh Lemongrass and a few pieces of tinned peaches. A... More

Their drinks aren't terrible but they're priced on the higher end and aren't the quality/flavours you'd come to expect in Vietnam, especially at the price points. One of the bigger negatives is that at least half of your drink, if cold, is over-filled with ice. The location of outlets are usually quite good.

There are many of these coffee stores around HCMC. I visited the one behind the opera house the most. The staff are friendly, wifi is quick and there is a large range of mini cakes and desserts. They give you a little device that lights up when your order is ready so you don't have to spend time wondering if... More
