Coffee shops

Coffee shops in Vietnam are very diverse in style, vibes and are everywhere. Here is a list of my favorite coffee shops in Saigon.Some are great for working, others are great relax and of course, all of them have good Vietnamese coffees as well as specialty and Western coffees.
A small coffee shop, perfectly to sit and relax. The price is somewhat more expensive compare to other Vietnamese coffee shop.This coffee shop is more focused on the western coffee.

Even though this one is a bit far from the condo ( 15-20 mins taxi) , this is my to go coffee shop. This shop has been here since 1960s ! Absolutely local favorite ! Note: there will be no table or a legit shop, just stools on the alley and enjoy the BEST Vietnamese coffee ( IMHO :) )

Cool local neighborhood with plenty of old apartment buildings to take photos with. Near by the Saigon river with chill, cool winds that you can take a seat at any restaurants near by. This part of town has 1 favorite dish that Saigonese love : Cháo vịt ( Duck Salad & Congee Soup)
