Why La Tamia Cafe is special ?

Café La Tamia is where you should head to, located in a little alley of District 1. It all started with a strong passion of collecting antiques and the love of old-school music by Mr Nghia Akai, the owner of the café, who has spent most of his life creating this special place for people who share the same interest.

The Café has more than twenty Magnétophones, varied in sizes, in addition to many other collectibles that you might have thought you would never ever see them again. Beside the soft retro music in your ears, you will see treasures such as those beautiful gramophones, a black and white TV with shutter or a truly vintage grand sofa set in the middle. That is why stepping into Cafe La Tamia is just like stepping onto a time machine, bringing you back to the Golden Time of Saigon in the 1970s.

Nice and cozy coffee shop. Wall is draped with old cassette tape decks that still function. Great old school music

Very cool decor reminiscent of my great grandmother's house back in the 70's. It feels nothing like being in Ho Chi Minh City or anywhere in Asia (until you step outside). Coffee's good, too.
