Description: By a group of foreign volunteers,the Sozo Cafe started in 2004 selling cookies from a cart to help street children. It then expanded into a Cafe on Bui Vien Street a year later. During 10 years, Sozo has been as a shop to help, employ disadvantage people and as an environment to enable young people to grow and contribute to the society. Sozo has been developed to be a 100% Vietnamese owned company. Mainly local staff run Sozo, with a small group of foreign volunteers as trainers and advisors. By year end of 2015, Sozo has moved from Dist. 1 to Dist. 2. This is the time for young local people to raise up and bring Sozo to a new season. Sozo aim is to restoring hope and changing life of those coming to Sozo to have a chance at a better life with our operation at Cafe and Youth Areas. Thank you for reading the Sozo story. We hope you have a great time with us at No. 51, 24A Street, Area 5, An Phu Ward, District 2

Sat down in the cafe when trying to escape the noisy street. We also just finished our dinner and wanted to sit down and chill. Ordered a carrot cake which was sadly below average. Maybe the taste is tuned to their local taste perhaps? Didnt try the coffee as i guess the coffee in vietnam should be pretty standard.

Six of us had dinner here based on other tripadviser reviews and there is nothing worth raving about. The Asian dinner meals were very bland and some of the group had long finished their meals before others had received theirs. Would not recommend for dinner.

What a pleasant surprise to walk in here and be greeted with such hospitality. We came in for a quick desert and some wifi, but were treated with free tea and cookies! Next to our already delicious brownie and ice cream. So nice and what an oasis after a long day strolling through this big city. We were exhausted but left with renewed energy!

Not the most extravagant cafe around, as it boasts of a humble decor, nothing too fancy. Cakes are relatively cheaper than its competitors, but I've eaten better ones.

Service is decent. I especially like the "quiet room" .
