Shangri La Coffee and Tea
This authentic cafe welcomes customers with its warm colors and wooden design. It’s a small, peaceful space with a cute little attic area that’s perfect for some Insta snaps. It’s a favorite gathering place for young groups of friends thanks to its delicious selection of milkshakes and bubble teas – the white bubble milk tea is a sweet treat definitely should be try.
The Coffee Plus
The name tell you that you can find something more than coffee there. It’s famous locally for its delicious matcha milkshakes, milk peach tea and tasty selection of cheesecakes – especially the tiramisu flavor. The vibrant drawings on the walls create an artistic aspiration and the painting of Copenhagen’s colorful Nyhavn waterfront is special art.
This really the great spot to consume a cold beverage on a hot summer day. Cafe Cub keeps things sweet and simple with a white, leafy inside and a small outdoor square. Their selection of ‘Snow Ice’ frozen lemonades serves as a zesty, refreshing choice on a hot Saigon day – the Lychee Freezy is a signature. If you’re feeling excited, there’s the option to play a game of Jenga while you sip away.
Kopo’s Desk Work Coffee
With a clean, black-and-white inside space, large tables and floor-to-ceiling windows, this cafe-slash-co-working space is a urban style, distraction-free space for you to get through your project. There’s lots of seating, plugs everywhere and fast WiFi to boot. If you need some productive energy, try one of their artisan milkshakes made with fresh local ingredients and marbled with chocolate sauce. It’s a dose of syrupy goodness served in a hipster-friendly jar and topped with a muffin of your choice.
Saigon Metropole Cafe
This weird cafe has design rainforest scenery integrated with a splash of art deco. The lightly colored toucan murals and tropical decor clash with black-and-white, Chevrolet-patterned items to create one of Ho Chi Minh City’s kitschiest cafes. The drinks on offer, such as the eye-catching kiwi and strawberry smoothie, are every bit as colourful as the cafe itself and you can even enjoy a cocktail or two at nighttime. If you’re feeling hungry, there are some healthy fruity snacks on offer, including the delicious frozen yogurt and berry assortment served inside a coconut.
The Coffee House
The Coffee House is the coffee chain that has huge fans in HCMC. It’s sort of like a cooler, more reasonably priced than Starbucks. District 4’s branch is a bright, spacious space with particular wooden furniture and murals that praise the many virtues of coffee. Its speedy WiFi and quiet atmosphere make it a great place to sit and work or chill out with a book. If you need a sweet treat to accompany you, they serve creamy, soft cheesecake all day long.
Located along the Ben Nghe river, this sophisticated coffee shop has a nice view to watch District 1 light up in the evening. Head there around 5.30pm to take a seat and see the skyscrapers begin to sparkle as the sun goes down. The coffee is rich and strong, the staff are friendly and there are even a couple of resident cats that often like to snooze on the little blue chairs.
Relax Coffee Bar
For the relaxing moments to enjoy a good cup of coffee with comfortable seats in twinkle space, this coffee shop is the most suitable. Tea lovers will be happy to know Relax’s brews are served in steamed bone china mugs, which originally make it taste 10 times better. There’s less natural light inside the coffee shop, but if you’re in need of some vitamin D there’s a balcony outside to sit and read in a wicker chair or to just enjoy some people watching.
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
There are lots of snaps of colorful blended drinks of this American chain on the social media page of the city’s fashionable young crowds. Inside, it’s roomy, stylish and peaceful with mosaic-patterned tiles and comfortable chairs. A strong WiFi connection makes it a favorite working place among District 4’s many students and young residents. Although Ho Chi Minh City’s weather is usually quite hot, the lightly spiced Aztec hot chocolate is particularly delicious – and worth the extra whip cream.
LALA Coffee and Tea
It is worth to spend a part of the day here due to its bare-brick walls, simple layouts and full of natural light. The large, gabled-roof attic area is great for some quiet work or study and seems to be filled with laptop users at all times of the day. But there is not enough about LALA. If you’d prefer to sit back and relax, the garden area is a deal to several luxurious cabanas for you to join in.
