This little place on the third or fourth floor in the heart auf district 1 is really adorable. If you are sitting outside on the balcony, you have a great view over the busy streets. Staff is super friendly, the drink I had wasn't cheap but worth the money.

I really liked this place, I went there twice and the drinks are really good, the place is so sweet, you feel like in a garden with all the decoration and bird sounds. Also the staff working there is very gentle, and outside you get a nice view of Ho Chi Minh City ! Great place I recommend !!!

Very cute quirky cafe. Lovely service. Bit expensive and food menu is small. Nice for a tea or coffee if you're visiting the boutiques throughout this really cool converted apartment building shopping precinct. Cong or the loft are better food options in the same building on lower levels.

As you climb the stairs up up this historical building you get a sense that the many cafes, and small businesses that have set themselves up at 26 Ly Tu Trong Street do so because they believe in the location. The location is perfectly situated across the road from the Viacom center and the building retains all its glory with... More
