Saigon’s cool cafe scene is pumping and the motorcycle obsessives behind Biker Shield Bistro have raised the bar - a classic motorcycle-themed cafe across two cracking colonial era shophouses.

Note: The information provided in this review was correct at time of publishing but may change. For final clarification please check with the relevant service

Biker Shield Bistro mixes cafe and bistro dining with motorcycle accessory sales - a little reminiscent of Australia's deus ex-machina brand with a different design feel. It's set up down an alley in a superb couple of colonial-era shophouses slightly away from the centre of Saigon's District 1. it's close by the Fine Arts Museum.

Most of the drinking and dining is downstairs. The motorcycle accessories are upstairs with a few tables.

There are some very handsome old bikes on display .The fitout is superb. Check out the chandelier made of motorcycle chains.

We're told the owner is a classic motorcycle collector from Hanoi.

I've been by for coffee and banh mi lunch a few times. It's not a bad spot to pull out the computer and get through some work during the day. 

Biker Shield now hosts live music with local cover bands on Friday nights. Smoking outside.
