  • 81 Café

    Coming to 81 Café, you can feel that everything seems friendly like the house you grew up in the past because it has many items associated with the “old days”. 81 Café tells you beautiful stories about childhood memories. Moreover, it is the perfect spot to enjoy the refreshing drinks like lemon juice, soda, coffee milk, and others at the average price fluctuating from VND10,000 to VND35,000.

    Don’t forget to head towards the deep well that are surrounded by trees and go up to the wooden mezzanine which was used for the living room of ancient house. If you are the one who loves to enjoy the idyllic space, old songs or some lovely cats, you should not ignore this place.

  • Mockingbird Café

    Cool, hip, and hidden Mocking Bird is what all independent cafes should be. Up four flights of dark, dank concrete stairs in a run-down apartment block that looks like it is slated for demolition in downtown Saigon’s financial district.

    With flowery, hippy dresses on coat-hangers, concrete walls decorated with chalk and paper murals, wooden tables and chairs on cold tiled floors, naked light-bulbs hanging from the ceiling, and a few brooding fashion snaps plastered here and there, it feels like entering the dorm of a creative student from 1960s Britain, or being backstage at a small-scale but exclusive fashion show. It has the cosy intimacy of a study, and the space is just about chaotic enough to feel ‘lived in’.

  • Ut Lanh Coffee

    Saigon rarely has a quiet place like Ut Lanh Coffee. Unlike other retro coffee shops that have been modeled or reconstructed to look old-fashioned, Ut Lanh is an old house which has existed for over 100 years. A small antique house with a wooden bed, some tables and chairs, a mezzanine and an old desk may recall your childhood.

    The various menu includes simple beverages and lots of snacks at the average cost fluctuating from VND30,000 to VND50,000.

  • Vung Oi, Mo Ra Café

    Another of Saigon’s well-hidden cafes Vung Oi, Mo Ra is on the first floor of an old, decaying French villa on a street known for its many cafes near the city centre. Accessed off a dead-end alleyway, through a street-kitchen and up a narrow staircase, this is a very private, cosy café not far from District 1.

    There is plenty of seating on cushioned chairs and the coffee here is chocolatey, rich and smooth (35,000VNĐ/$1.50). During the daytime, when the cafe is quiet, you are free to pick up any of the instruments and have a go.

  • Ngay Xua Ay Café

    Far from the city centre, Ngay xua ay Café is worth the effort it takes to get here. Down a narrow alleyway off one of the burgeoning roads behind the airport in Go Vap District, this trinket-filled coffee shop is a tribute to yesteryear.

    Whether it be Asia or Europe, this café focuses firmly on the past. The pretty, gated entrance leads into a tight, leafy courtyard dotted with stone mandarins, potted plants, clumps of bamboo and twittering caged birds hanging from branches.
