I always come here every morning to enjoy coffee and breakfast here. I like this restaurant because of good coffee, reasonable prices and friendly staff.

When you enter you feel transported to Europe/USA. The most outstanding breakfast in Saigon. Great prices, I almost felt like I was stealing! The fried chicken far surpasses what is s old at KFC, and their burgers put Burger King to shame.

A co-worker took me to Cafe Alex one day to eat and I had the best Fish-n-Chips platter. Since then, I have been back there many times. I have eaten almost everything on the menu. I have never had a bad meal at Cafe Alex. They have fried chichen, pork chops and great burgers. It is not expensive to eat.... More

I've been coming here for about 12 months now - the food is excellent - especially the Full English Breakfast - superb. The staff are great, and the owner, Chris, is a pleasure to chat to. The new location is in a really nice, quiet street. Great place.

This is a must experience for all but especially for the English speaking traveler. The food is what I call "comfort food," you know, like home. Beer is very reasonably priced and the atmosphere is warm and friendly!

Cafe Alex has moved? What am I going to do to get my 'fix of bangers and mash or fish and chips? No worries mate! The new Cafe Alex is still an English speaking beacon and safe haven in what can at times appear to be a mad, mad world. The food is still top shelf British fare. Cafe Alex... More
