Why Café Ngày Xưa Ấy is special ?

Ngày Xưa Ấy Café is worth the effort it takes to get here. Down a narrow alleyway off one of the burgeoning roads behind the airport in Gò Vấp District, this trinket-filled coffee shop is a tribute to yesteryear. The pretty, gated entrance leads into a tight, leafy courtyard dotted with stone mandarins, potted plants, clumps of bamboo and twittering caged birds hanging from branches. But inside is where the treasure lies. Attractive antique wooden tables and chairs sit under an old ceiling fan, rotating slowly, blowing the dust off traditional Asian stringed instruments, etc. It’s a small space jammed full of memorabilia, but it doesn’t feel cluttered. Up a very steep stairway there’s a cosy loft – filled with dolls and watched over by a portrait of Uncle Ho – where seating is on cushions on the carpeted floor.
