We went here for breakfast, and this spacious café is a good alternative to L'Usine in the same back alley. They have a decent menu, with friendly staff and some flexibility for special requests. Also has a more independent, less "chainy" feel about it. Just...More

While this café is nicely located, with a balcony, and rather secluded, the menu's pricing is terrible with regards to the quality of food and drink we got. A bahn mi, Vietnam's common 20-30k street food sandwich, here costs 80k and has much less quality...More

Lovely coffees and a delicious 'flan' (more like a creme caramel). The ginger and lemongrass soda was also excellent. Inside is cool and air conditioned, but they also have a lovely balcony terrace which we'd have used if we hadn't been quite so hot! The...More

We sat on the cafe's terrace, drank ice tea, and watched the monsoon rain lash it down. Great fun and reasonably priced. Inside is air conditioned.

Spotted this place off the road when I saw people sitting on their balcony. We picked this place over L'Usine because the owner was so welcoming. The banana cake is something else. Its a soft quiche like thing. With good Caramelized stuff. Not the spongey...More
