“Emergency birthday cake ”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 via mobile

I recently ordered a custom cake with only a 24 hour turnaround and zero idea what the birthday boy liked. Angela was calm, focused, and incredibly helpful, and she was able to provide me with just enough guidance. The result was a Black Forest marvel! It was absolutely perfect. I know I'll be coming here for our next bday party... Although I probably won't get the 30 cm cake again! It was much bigger than I imagined!

“Doughy pizza”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

A bit hit and miss. Maybe I made bad choices, but none of the baked goods I had were very good, especially the plastic tasting pizza. There was also no offer to heat it. On the other hand, the upstairs dining area was pleasant with good air conditioning and WiFi and someone coming round with continuous free tea. You could spend hours there undisturbed and people were.

“Good, but some flaws”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

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.

“Great place to chill out or even work”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

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.
