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

Well, I mean, I'll be back (probably many times) because it's convenient, and when they get things right, they are OK. I came in on a Tuesday morning, about 8:30 am, prior to my 9:00 personal appointment. Placed my eat-in order (Croissant Set [to include coffee]). They took my name and gave me a receipt and number. I sat down.... More

I love their ice blended no coffee drinks. The dark chocolate and carmel are my favorites. The lemon beef wrap is really good too. During lunch if you buy a meal you get a drink for 1/2 price.

A great place to sup on a pleasant latte and watch the interaction of city life including tourists, local traders and businessmen. This Coffee Bean is located on Dong Street opposite the Notre Dame Church and old French colonial post office. We have used Coffee Beans all over Malaysia and have nearly always been afforded great service and this particular... More
