Why Things Cafe is special ?

Things café is the best of lot, and opening its yellow door leads to a calm oasis of intriguing miscellany. Tiled floors, wooden furniture, table lamps, chess boards and Murakami books lying around create an extremely mellow mood. As with many of Saigon’s ‘indie’ cafes the theme appears to be nostalgia: old to antique items abound, from brass taps on the sinks to Singer sewing machines and creaking ceiling fans. Various artworks hang on the walls next to famous quotes from Uncle Ho chalked up on blackboards. Again the atmosphere is that of a studio, study or student dorm. Indeed, this whole apartment block is riddled with these fascinating, enticing cafes, and the building itself exudes a certain bygone era charm: the winding staircase has floral wrought iron banisters suggesting it might once have been rather grand, and the shaft between the stairs was once an elevator of the kind that you had to manually prise open the doors.

This small cafe's tucked away in a large building which you might think is derelict from the exterior. A great space to whisk yourself away from the hustle and bustle of HCMC.
