Just passing through Nguyen Dinh Chieu Street (District 3, Saigon) always busy with bus, no one knows that the coffee shop more than 3 decades only sold in "administrative hours".
Mrs. Hong (68 years old), the owner of the shop said: "I opened this coffee when my son was 2 years old, now he is 38 years old. I opened the shop to earn more money to market, not expect anything”.
Ms. Hong come from Quang Binh, followed her husband into the South "also several decades"
Nestled under the green vines, the door opens to a small space with several plastic chairs and wooden tables by the owner herself. I came to a morning of the first week, when the sunshine began to spread on the vines is also the time when crowds started crowding, Mrs. Hong non-stop stirring coffee, the car still rushed outside.
Ms. Hong said that the restaurant often open early in the morning for the office workers
Over the past few decades, the familiar image of coffee and teapot has been printed in the memory of many people who visited this place.
Mrs. Hong said that the restaurant is open early in the morning for office workers to have a place to stop drinking water. At about 11am I close the door to cook rice, and opens again when I have free time. The guests will also "get the opportunity" to take out the phone because there is no wi-fi here.
The coffee shop is close to your house in the middle of the city
Most of the people come here as office workers. Some people stop drinking coffee, eat bread loaf. Someone came to work table because the atmosphere is comfortable but still private. There are also people sitting alone sipping coffee, watching the streets. Everyone knows the idea of keeping the space together, talking enough and less using the phone.
The most popular drink is black coffee or milk coffee. Mrs. Hong's shop does not have a coffee maker or a racket, and she will make coffee in the bottle and bring it to guests. Alternatively, guests can choose from other drinks such as soft drinks, orange juice, lemonade or soy milk.
A cup of coffee milk costs 12,000 VND
Saigon does not know how many cafes, ranging from luxury to popular. However, there are places that do not need any style or modern still attract guests such as Mrs. Hong’s.
