A cool little cafe a little away from downtown Saigon serving tasty salads, fresh sandwiches, smoothies - and coffee of course in tastefully done space. Worth the effort if you have some time.

Review

It’s 5 minutes or so in a cab from downtown Saigon - depending on traffic - but Vintage Emporium is a great little Saigon cafe. Good for a long indulgent breakfast over a book or magazine. Casual lunches work well too. Not a place for a quick stop - especially if you’ve come from downtown.

It’s become a popular spot for locals and expats needing to get some work done too.

Seems pretty quiet at night.

Owned and operated by hospitality veterans, local Dung and her Australian partner Linton, lots of love has gone into this place. The design mixes vintage European and Asian styles. Dung’s around a lot, making sure everything’s running smoothly and she’s great for a chat.
