In Vietnam, drinking coffee is among the top experiences you can't miss. Apart from sipping the signature weasel coffee and old-but-gold egg coffee, spare a few hours rejuvenating at these garden cafes in Ho Chi Minh City. 

Overview of Garden Cafes in Ho Chi Minh City

Despite the increasing number of coffee chains, independent cafes that are against the self-service and takeaway trend still imprint on the locals' minds. Among those, the greatest representatives are garden cafes in Ho Chi Minh City. At these places, you can take your time, be served from A to Z, and only pay once you're ready to leave. As they mainly target office workers, breakfast and lunch are often on the menu.
