This little cafe on the 2nd floor of an old residency building is a real nest. Cozy, warm, friendly, excellent food, safe. They serve drinks and foods all day. It's worth a visit if you want to try a real Vietnamese home cooking taste. This place is full of stories to tell, for examples: The owner wake up at 4:00 AM every morning to go to the market and select the most fresh veggies, fishes, meats and other ingredients. On the way back from the market, she always helps deliver the purchase of an old street vendors couple to their doors cause the couple are too old to be able to carry heavy things. Their family is one of the first to grow the coffee in Ban me Thuot (highlands town). They have another cafe with the same name in in that town since 1967. They now still grow their own coffee, hand grounded. Their way of making coffee is unique. They filter the coffee 3 times and let it over the night so the coffee become very condensed, naturally bitter and give a natural sweet flavour in your mouth. It is highly recommended if you want a quiet place to rest after lots of walking. It nested behind the Opera house. Don't mistaken it with another cafe on the 1st floor, go up 1 more floor and you will find it.
Great ambiance - I could spend the whole day here sipping coffee and reading a book. It took a bit of searching to find the stairs to this café but definitely a find. I didn't get to try the food but the beverage offerings were more than adequate. I'm happy to recommend this place to anyone. It's worth checking out.
Hidden spot! I had to ask some security guys where I can find this coffee place. They pointed to a very modern building but I was sure that they were wrong. I showed them the address again and smiled and pointed to a shabby house on the other side of the street. There it is, second floor. I entered the house and wasn’t sure, if I was right. BUT, a very super cosy place appeared. This coffee shop is styled like in a magazine and very very beautiful. Only locals were there and I enjoyed my cappuccino a lot. The coffee shop is styled, but not overstyled and you can bring a book, magazine or your laptop to enjoy your drink and stay there are while. It is a very quiet place and for those of you who want to escape from Vietnamese horrible music have to go thte Bang Khuang Café! Prices are okay, they don’t serve desserts. The waiters are really friendly but sometimes their English is not the best. So always show what you want to order on the menu…
