Hidden away on Nguyen Thi Minh Khai is May Concept, the ideal retreat for enjoying a quiet cup of coffee. May Concept is a small Franco-Vietnamese shop-house filled with dark wood furniture. The coffee lounge area exists beside a handicrafts shop and garden, in which there is a lily pond. The coffee here is freshly roasted in-house and Vietnamese. Emphasize that you like your coffee strong if you want a truly Vietnamese experience – locals tend to think Westerners drink weak coffee.
