Wow probably one of the best coffee's I've ever had! I ordered a regular and I received half a little of coffee! It was hot and tasty. When we were in Hanoi I found another of these franchise's and the coffee was exactly the same. Thoroughly recommended. A great atmosphere inside as well.

Coffee Bean serves a great cup of coffee for an American not used to the strong Vietnamese coffee. The coffee is always good; I generally have one of the breakfast sets; usually a bagel with cream cheese and coffee of the day; good value at 65000VND. Service at this particular Coffee Bean has been slow on occasion, but other than... More

This chain of cafes have nice airco and offers really good coffee. They all have free WiFi. Do note that prices are the same as back home. In my case western Europe. I'll give it a 4 for the quality, airco and WiFi. Otherwise a 3 would have been more correct regarding the price level in HCMC.

We stopped here for a break while travelling around on foot all morning. The coffee was delicious and sitting out the front watching the world go by was relaxing. Really nice place.

My husband and I stopped in for a coffee fix after being at Ben Thanh market this afternoon, so pleased we did as these were the best, and the biggest coffees we have had during our stay in Vietnam. Not the cheapest however I happily paid 90,000 dong per coffee as they were great and were the size of a... More

good western coffee is harder to find in Saigon than I thought, Trung Nguyen not a good as expected, but we popped in here by chance and it was by far the best made coffee we had and we tried about 6 different places

They don't need to shout at me:"welcome to coffee bean" when the customer comes in. Wifi is so terrible, I have to use 3G on my phone. table, chair, handrails are full of dust. Very poor customer service.

It's official... no longer able to order bagels at HCMC Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf shops. (I give it them a poor rating for the food experience only... though like the other big chains they have generally overpriced coffee.) After taking in stride my usual Tran Hung Dao/Bui Vien location's rancid sesame seeds on their bagels, I went to the... More

Overpriced and bad coffee. I order the Vietnamese coffee and it had been the worst of the trip. The quality of the coffee is very bad, is that bitter that the condense milk does not cover the bitterness. Please avoid this place.

The Coffee Bean's in HCMC are the best coffee shops in the world. The people that work there seem genuinely concerned about making sure everything is just right. The prices are reasonable, the coffee's great, and they don't mind if you hang around for a long time, using their wi-fi. I was at the one on Tran Hung Dao St,... More
