Why Trung Nguyen Coffee is special ?
Trung Nguyen Coffee is Vietnam's most successful coffee company — its very own Starbucks, but better, of course. Opened in the late 1990s, there are now more than 1,000 outlets across the country. The coffee menu is extensive (it's a book) and the prices are on the high side, but you can't beat it for quality. If you feel like splashing out on a classic Vietnamese-style brew, try the "Number 8: Break Through" for 94,000 dong. Made with arabica, robusta and excelsa coffee beans it smells divine, tastes strong and will give you a buzz that lasts all day. This is a chain, so the interiors are similar — simple pale wood furniture, splashes of red — and if you enjoyed your brew you can buy a bag of beans to take home with you. Regulars say they come back because it's consistently good.

Tips for you
Good, and very accurate place not to have only food, but also to have some coffee and just relax in a safe friendly environment. In fact I liked this place and it reminded me somehow North American style places. I can't say that I will go there again, but at least I wish to say that if it happens and you will need a place to seat with friends or partners- that's the right choice for that.
If you are looking for the real type of coffee from freshly roasted coffee beans, this is the place. A nice, warm ambience coupled with polite staffs, this place beats many of its competitors around the vicinity. Their blend of robusta and arabica beans in one cup of coffee is a must try, as you can really taste the sourness and bitterness nature of the beans.
This place's got my best vote for Trung Nguyen Coffee shop. Its city view, larger space, aircon-ed smoking area, balcony seats looking down to Dong Khoi str are really nice. Recommend upstairs.
