Although being the 2nd largest producer of coffee in the world, surprisingly, Vietnamese domestic consumption eats up only 8% of the beans they produce each year. Unlike North America people, the Vietnamese do not get addicted to coffee. When they do caffeinate, they seem like to have a break from the bustle of daily life and relax in one of the most omnipresent cafes of the country marked throughout the city. Saigon, Vietnam has also preserved its strong cafe culture in spite of its growing responsibilities as an economic center of Vietnam. Vietnam tours packages
Located at 70B Le Loi, District 1, l’usine is an interesting coffee shop to explore. A smart clothing store is situated on the first floor while upstairs is the cafe. It’s a bit of a Saigon organization and appeals a mix of up-to-the-minute locals, tourists and expats. Although being stylish and modern, lofty and sleek, L’usine is almost to the point where it expresses a bit cold and creation. What makes L’usine unique is a back area with an impressive chess board as well as various great old maps and furniture for sale.
Although being pricier than most of the other cafes on this menu, the iced coffee is really flavorful and strong. If you have had enough of the iced crack grabbing an espresso drink or a pretty tasty smoothie is not a bad idea. South Vietnam Tours packages
CAFE GAC HOA
Situated at number 92 Phạm Ngọc Thạch Street in district 3 and can be accessed from Trung Quyen Street, the “flower cafe” is nestle down a small alley. Unlike many of the smoky cafes in Ho Chi Minh City, the convenient position of this shop above a flower shop ensures the atmosphere here clean and floral. The lovely, wooden three-story cavern-like attic cafe that is handmade and delicate makes tourists feel like being in a rural antique shop. The place definitely has a womanish feel to it. The latte at 54,000 VND / $2.75 has acceptable standard. The coffee shop is much suitable for being a place to relax and chat with friends, rather than work.
Being one of a large number of cafes situated around Turtle Pond roundabout on the edge of District 1 and 3, 42 Café is not famous for any awards it gained for the fairly nondescript furnishings, but for the best iced coffee regarded in Saigon. Served in a traditional way with Vietnamese drip filter coming with a glass of fragrant green tea on the other side, coffee here is worth trying. A beautiful courtyard usually full of elder Vietnamese gentlemen upstairs while downstairs is a spacious area with air conditioning, and plenty more comfortable armchairs upstairs, scattered behind huge windows looking out at the heart of Turtle Lake and the stream of motorbikes zipping around the wide-arcing surroundings. It is an ideal place where tourists can enjoy a cup of stunning coffee while admiring the spectacular views of Ho Chi Minh City.
