Where it matter most, this place is nice--The baked goods are tasty and reasonably priced.

However, the coffee is very expensive by Vietnamese standards, and the iced coffee is 95% ice, with almost no actual coffee. Kind of a rip off, particularly when you can get a better product from a street vendor at a quarter of the price.

The toilets are quite bad. They do not have toilet seats, so it's basically a squat toilet. Also fairly dirty with bad toilet paper.

The music is hilariously awful. How about some nice jazz or classical? The current soundtrack sounds like something I would hear at an old carpet store or something.

Also, they need to add another cash register.

In short--lots of potential, but poor execution. A bit of effort by management could make this place really great. But for now--it's just okay. 3 stars.

Myself and a friend were on 'workation', designing for clients while in Vietnam and we pretty much used ABC as our office.

Some nice baked goods, good coffee, good wifi, great staff and free iced green tea refills.

Cheesecake tasted like jelly. Tiramisu did not taste like tiramisu. Looked good but not great. Can't comment on bread or pizza. Staff were fine.

We have just had a Vietnamese breakfast coffee there and it was as good as you would like to have early in the morning, perfectly strong and with a lot of flavour. Also we have tried a mini blueberry cheesecake and a small tiramisu, both were tasty especially cheesecake though tiramisu is not a classic Italian one but more a mousse. A big range of pastries of all kind, bangers and bread at reasonable prices. Worth visiting
