Vietnamese love coffees, if you been to Ho Chi Minh city you will probably notice that every 100 meters there will be a cafe shop.

The preparation and delivery of the hallowed, roasted bean from Vietnam are unique and probably the best in the world. No matter you drink it with ice or steaming hot; sweet and milky or bitter and black, the many, many coffee shops dotted around Ho Chi Minh have got you covered.

Of course, it’s not just the delicious coffee that makes Ho Chi Minh’s cafe scene so rich and vibrant. The list below contains coffee shops with amazing interior design, lounge-worthy vibes, great views, and all with free Wi-Fi.

1. ID Café Saigon

ID Cafe Saigon is a two-storey coffee shop in District 1. Despite its unassuming frontage, you’ll find that it has a welcoming vibe with a funky retro theme. Open daily from 07:00, the menu is a bit of a mix-and-match, with an array of Vietnamese and European fusion dishes on offer.

2. The Hidden Elephant Books & Coffee

Hidden Elephant is a great coffee shop to get some work done if you thrive in a very quiet, peaceful environment. They have lots of tea and coffee offerings and a few sweet and savory treat options.

Location: 2nd Floor, 35 Phan Chu Trinh, Phường Bến Thành, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City

3. 42 Cafe

One of several cafes located around Turtle Pond roundabout on the border of District 1 and 3. It won’t win any awards for its fairly nondescript furnishings, but for our money, this is the best-iced coffee in Saigon. Coffee is served in a traditional Vietnamese drip filter with a glass of fragrant green tea on the side. There is a small courtyard usually full of elder Vietnamese gentlemen, a downstairs area with air conditioning, and plenty more comfy armchairs upstairs, scattered behind large windows looking out at the centerpiece of Turtle Lake and the endless motorbikes zipping around the wide-arcing roundabout. The upstairs is a smoking room which might be off-putting for some; however, for the quality of their brew and the intriguing view, it’s worth a coffee…or two.

Location: (Turtle Pond) 4 Cong Trưong Quoc Te, District 3

4. MOF

MOF – or Ministry of Food, to give it its full name – is a Japanese sweets and coffee shop, meaning you can get a delicious afternoon snack to go with your coffee, or even a full meal as they have several savoury dishes on the menu as well. The theme at MOF is health conscious treats that spare the calories but not the taste. The menu of desserts, chocolates, smoothies, gelatos contain classic Japanese options such as mochi sprinkled with green tea powder as well as European staples like crème brulee. MOF have several branches spread throughout the city, but the one on Le Loi is our favourite. Look out for their excellent lunch sets, including bento boxes, curry and ramen.

Location: 30 Le Loi, District 1

5. Teaspoon Coffee & Tearoom

Teaspoon Coffee & Tearoom is the place to go if you’re serious about tea. Not only is this adorable Saigon cafe filled with unique teapots and teacups on display, but you can also choose from a wide selection of teas in various fruit and floral varieties, as well as black, green, and herbal teas. And you can select the strength of your tea depending on your preference.

Location: 37 Lý Tự Trọng, Bến Nghé, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City
