Just went to both supposed locations which were both closed. I was then given the number for the owner who confirmed the business is finished. Disappointed to say the least.

Not there. CLOSED. Would have been nice for Cafe Alex to post something as to the closure as we drove all the way down from the airport to go there.

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.
