“Relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Right in the center of the tourist area this hidden restaurant (it's through an alley and upstairs) is a great place to come for a break, a coffee, aircon, light snack. Friendly attentive staff. Never too crowded. Outdoor seating overlooking the opera house.

“Good Vietnamese”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

We ate there twice. The Vietnamese food was quite good, according to my wife. The American food, which I had, was just OK, but that is the usual experience -- after all, it is Vietnam. Overall, not bad for the tourist area downtown.

“Ok but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

The food is ok but the one next door is better. The drinks were good. Communicating with the staffs can be challenging. We were over charge for things we didn't ordered and they never bother to return the change.

“New hidden treasure in centre of HCM City.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Go down the Art Arcade on Dong Koi street,first turn left and upstairs to Catina Cafe.Clean,fresh, with a range of seating and outside balcony overlooking Dong Koi.
Staff are friendly and efficient for a cafe that has only been open 3 days.
Pleasant background music that does not intrude on conversation.Best coffee I have had in HCM City and I had a delicious baguette.Also try the Catina banana cake.
Do your self a favour and and have a quite break and wonderful coffee
