this place was recommended by a friend, and i'm so grateful. the location is a little odd (above a retail store), but the vibe is definitely European. food was delicious--service was a little strange considering there were more people working there than eating there...alternatively overly attentive and then NOT...a little mocking, actually. but, the vibe and the food were worth...

we enjoyed this small restaurant/ cafe above a cute boutique. the food was really delicious. the servings are very large, so you may want to think about sharing.

Fantastic cafe and lifestyle store, we visited both locations in HCMC. Staff were friendly and attentive, food fresh and tasty, prices fair and reasonable and the vibe is fantastic. Definitely worth popping in to chill out away from the hustle & bustle - we will be back!

We ate here twice during our visit to HCMC. Very nice quaint cafe, air conditioned throughout. Not cheap by Vietnam standards but very good quality food. There is also a cool shop below the cafe that sells nice things.

A very hip place with moody interiors which will not be out of place in London or NYC. They have managed to combine a cafe upstairs with a trendy treasure trove of a shop downstairs. Actually was passing through the street when I ran into it accidentally but realized it was one of the places our friends have been raving... More

Actually we deliberately followed some fellow westerners into this place. They seemed to be in the know. As you walk in,it is a really nice shop,clothes,paintings ect. For sale. Then we spotted the Stairs. They lead to a big spacious Food and Beverage Area,which is both spacious and cozy. Only there for coffee,but diners seemed very happy,locals and foreigners.

The food we ate here for breakfast was so beautiful that we returned the next day to eat lunch! I loved everything about French-style this restaurant, especially the location, which is hidden away down a little alley opposite the Opera House. We were recommended by a friend who visited a few months ago and were not disappointed. I recommend the... More
