Western Coffee in HCMC!

A short walk from our hotel (Victory Hotel, Saigon), we enjoyed a "real" (western) coffee in HCMC. Friendly staff, free wifi and located next to a lovely bakery. It was nice to "people watch" onto the street also.

We go to the Gloria Jean's coffee shop near the Presidential Palace in Ho Chi Minh just to have a coffee and watch the traffic. There are motorcycles going in every direction and it is amazing to see how people manage to survive. The coffee and buns are good and the the staff are on the ball. Worth the cost... More

This was, without question, the most satisfying coffee I've had in Vietnam. Sure, you can get Vietnamese style coffees elsewhere for cheaper, but if you want a good coffeehouse style coffee, then this is an excellent option.

This place is extremely expensive by HCMC standards, and you don't really get much for your extra money. The staff is rude and unprofessional, and the food and drinks are ok, but no better than what you can get for much better prices elsewhere.

I guess this review is being done in comparison to my frequent visits to Coffee Bean. Gloria Jean's did not impress me. Tables and chairs always seemed dirty and not picked up. The Americano was never the same. The place just had an awkward feel to it, if you know what I mean. Pastries were dry.

If was so hot the day we visited. A lovely escape from the heat. Air conditioning was fantastic. Staff very nice and the iced coffee great. I was really hot and the staff even turned on extra air-conditioning for me.

Nice to escape in here if you want to get "relatively" over-priced American coffee. You can also enjoy the wifi and air-conditioning to escape from the heat. Just your Western-style typical coffee shop.

Medium quality, high prices, staff rather unfriendly, sometimes very cold, sometimes too warm. Upstairs is nicer (and quieter) than downstairs. The cushions are great. I go to the GJ in Nguyen Thi Minh Khai. The major advantage here is that it's linked to Bread Talk which has great pastries.

I love how the staff walk up to you when you're sitting and tell you "your drink is ready" and then point at the place they just came from, where they left your drink for you to come pick up. Does that count as an A+ for effort or an F ? The music is all the typical Western/Korean pop... More
