a very nice surprise!

I was particularly interested in trying the Pho since my local city doesn't have any restaurant serving it. This little restaurant received great reviews on Yelp so we tried it. For 3 of us, we ordered 2 appetizers and noodle entrees. The bill total was about $28.00 including tip. The food was... read more

This is such a fabulous Vietnamese place! I got the pork vermicelli tonight, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service is prompt and kind, food is always phenomenal, and it's a favorite among friends! We love coming here as often as possible.

This is a cute little hole-in-the wall sort of place just around the corner from the King Street main drag in Old Town. It's a casual, fun, and relaxed place to grab a meal. The food was amazing. Everything was just bursting with fresh flavors. The portions were large enough that everyone at our table could share and enjoy. This... More

I generally grab carry-out and it is consistently fresh and delicious. The restaurant has the option to eat in also, but it is a bit cramped.

To stretch-out their broth, they watered-down the Pho to the point that it was tasteless. This occurred during my second visit to this restaurant. The first time I went the broth was perfect, hence my deep disappointment the second time. I might give them another shot.

Let start by saying I'm not a connoisseur or expert in Vietnamese PHO but I really liked our experience in Banh Mi. It's a small space in Old Town that seats about 30 people. That being said the room for each dinner is comfortable. The service was good, the food tasted fresh, it was just the right temperature, and the... More

This bowl of Pho Dac Biet (the works) is delicious. Even my Vietnamese friends say they can't make broth this good. The soup is loaded with everything which is how I like it - others may not like the tendon and other non-American palate meats included. I get the large size as a carryout and I have a hearty lunch... More

My fiance (Viet) and I stopped in here last night to celebrate Lunar New Year and see what people on Trip Advisor and Yelp were talking about. Well, we sure were glad we came! Caphe Banh Mi is easy to miss-- it's on less-busy Cameron St. in a small house-- but hard to forget. Entering the restaurant, you're first going... More

Caphe Banh Mi offers a fantastic collection of Vietnamese favorites. Truely authentic Vietnamese cuisine. We ordered summer rolls (goi cuon) and imperial rolls (cha gio) vegetarian and with meat. Also the mouth watering house pho... even though there is a surcharge make sure to add extra noodles you won't regret it. This is really a hidden gem. The restaurant is... More

First visit here for lunch today; arrived around noon, restaurant full with people waiting. Menu focussed on bahn mi and pho. We shared a roast pork bahn mi and a small bowl of beef pho. Both were delicious and the bahn mi was especially tasty. Our tab was about $16 including tax. I would definitely go back to this place... More
