Pre ordered breakfast for collection, was not prepared.staff then made my order but another member of staff comes on duty said something to the girl preparing the food, the food just disappeared with out an explanation.

They started to make it again I think but had no time to wait. No reason given!! Cannot rely on the service.

“A coffee oasis!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

I've been here a few times and it's a nice little cafe. There's new coffees, chocolates, baked items, smoothies and lunch items. The salads are colorful and tasty. I've been to a lot of cafe's in Vietnam and this one stands out.

“More than just coffee”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We spent a few days at the Riverside apartments and got to try this lovely place. The coffee in the morning was great but they also prepared lovely smoothies, baguettes, fantastic chocolates and pastries. It isn't pricey either despite of their location. Worth a try if you are in Ho Chi Minh.
