The very best coffee shops for couples in Ho Chi Minh City (part 2)


Saigonese love coffee and one of the first things you will quickly notice about the biggest city in Vietnam is the sheer abundance of coffee shops. Even though Starbucks can be found in the Pearl of the Far East—luckily, still less popular in the U.S or Canada—skip the chains and tuck into one of Saigon’s best cafes and espresso bars for couples that the locals love to frequent!

Which are the best honeymoon destinations for couples, especially when they need an early-morning caffeine jolt? Below are our recommendations on the very best coffee shops for couples in Ho Chi Minh City!

In spite of the difference when it comes to the vibe and offerings at each cafe, one thing for sure is that excellent-quality coffee, whether it is a summery iced coffee, a strong Vietnamese coffee, a frothy latte, a bright espresso, or a great pour-over for your early-morning caffeine jolt, made by local baristas who know exactly what they are doing.



The Workshop

  • Address: 2nd floor, No 27 Ngo Duc Ke, District 1, Ho Chi Minh  City;
  • Opening hours: 07:00.A.M.- 10:00.P.M.;
  • Price range: VND 20,000 – 80,000 (USD 0.8-3.5);
  • Telephone: +842 838 246 801

I think they also make some of the best café staples in the city including sandwiches, burgers, pastries, and pasta. What a great bonus! And the contemporary decoration with re-purposed timber, wooden, and brick, the overall relaxing vibe, and the mellow music are welcoming anyone who likes the romantic scene on their Vietnam honeymoon. Sit at a private table, indulge in one of the Workshop’s peculiarities, and linger over a single-origin coffee – Chemex, espresso, Aeropress, or V60 pour over. Don’t expect to easily find that kind of experience just anywhere in Ho Chi Minh City!

Unless you are sure where to start, all the friendly staff here – who are well versed in everything related to coffee – will happily tell you all the flavor notes to help you find an excellent brew for you. Don’t forget to pick up some packages of freshly-roasted coffee beans as well as some coffee paraphernalia to bring home as a souvenir of your Vietnam tour for couples.



Awesome Coffee Roasters

  • Address: No 994 Nguyen Van Linh Street (Nguyễn Văn Linh), D2 – 21 My Toan 3 (Khu Phố Mỹ Toàn 3), Tan Phong Ward (Tân Phong), District 7, Ho Chi Minh City;

Described as a hideaway with some light jazz, you can expect all the knowledgeable baristas who try their best to give you the best experience ever, incredible coffee, and loads of delicate décor in the cafe in the Little Seoul area of Phu My Hung. The coffee here is so much stronger than those available in the several chain stores in Ho Chi Minh City, and as a bonus, it serves superb pastries. Don’t forget to try the smooth cool cream tiramisu with your cup of joe. They are to die for on your Vietnam honeymoon. And have fun ordering a right drop for you with the menu in English and Korean.

Another cafe to visit on your Vietnam honeymoon tour in Ho Chi Minh City is the Saigon Coffee Roastery in District 1. The Saigon Coffee Roastery, an amazing coffee shop inspired by Italian espresso bars with exposed whitewashed brick, wooden tables, and unique decoration items on the wall, is, not surprisingly, a dreamy destination of all Instagrammers and lovers alike. Take a seat at a private table and simply enjoy your Vietnamese coffee.
