Located opposite the Ben thanh markets and under pho 2000 it's in a great spot. We visited twice and weren't overly impressed but not too disappointed either. Does a decent cappuccino and the iced coffee is pretty good too. Staff are friendly and very helpful to one another if the language barrier is getting in the way. It was nice... More

This is the best cappuccino I've had in HCMC. Rich and smooth.... My wife loved her macchiato. Also, we sat in very comfortable seats.

If it is summer, chances are you are melting in the heat of Saigon. If you are at Ben Thanh market right across the street, you will be exhausted. Coffee Bean offers an across the street place to get a cold drink, free wifi and a much needed rest from the sun and noise. The wifi is OK so maybe... More

Centrally located in front of the Notre Dame Cathedral, this coffee shop can benefit from mostly travelling Vietnamese and foreigners. As a result the prices are uncharacteristically over inflated. I would not have come here had I know of these ridiculous prices. I would say that prices are easily twice as expensive for identical shops in the city. I have... More

They have a perfect location, then you should pay a high rate for sure, but I expect to have a better coffee with European style (I think this is american style, it is light, black and too much water with me). It is similar with starbuck coffee, You should wait and pay for your service not like you will be... More

This shop is part of a chain of coffee shops that is quite good.... not quite as good as the independents but still good. I had a coffee here as a break from touring around District 1. It tasted good but more importantly the staff were very helpful in helping me find my next tourist stop. I would gladly visit... More

Coffee didn't taste good. Overpriced. Cannot recommend it for coffeelovers. Location is nice. Overrated on tripadvisor.
