Saigon Coffee Shop Reviews

As mentioned here, I’m compiling a list of personal reviews of coffee shops I visit in Saigon. I do most of my writing at coffee shops. I typically spend three to five hours at a time at one, if it’s comfortable enough. The characteristics I rate highly are the comfort/viability of using a laptop there, overall atmosphere, and, of course, the quality and price of the coffee. I’ll also give you some pointers on finding the place if it’s difficult to locate (as happens so often around here).

So you say you're a java-junkie, eh?
Saigon Coffee

I use the basic cà phê đen đá, or Vietnamese black iced coffee, as my barometer for coffee quality. Effectively every coffee shop in the country offers both it and cà phê sữa đá (iced coffee with sweetened condensed milk), so I figure it’s a good metric.

Come join me in exploring the unexpected coffee capitol of the world: Saigon! I will link to all my reviews here as they accrue. Come back regularly for more!
