Cafes with a green vibe have become more and more common throughout Saigon. Sadly, the illusion of being away from the dusty city sometimes shatters once you look out the window.
Mầm coffee tea beer manages to avoid this problem by dedicating an entire space deep inside an alley, complete with a pond and wooden structures for a fantastic countryside experience right in Saigon.
Located on 28 Thảo Điền Street, you will have to walk for a couple of minutes into this alley before reaching the actual location.
With a small cottage surrounded by plants, rustic architecture, and vegetable fields, this cafe brings nostalgia to those whose homes might be far from the city. A great temporary solution for those who are a bit homesick.
There is a nearby river that adds to the calming mood of the scenery and gorgeous photo moments for Instagrammers.
The cafe also has cute dogs frolicking around the area. Petting them might be a hard task, however, due to their shyness.
Mầm coffee tea beer offers a wide variety of drinks – from coffee, tea, and fresh fruit juices to healthy snacks such as yogurt with jam. While the menu does not follow the countryside theme, its deliciousness trumps all complaints.
Sweet and sour red artichoke tea
A recommendation that we found delightful was the red artichoke tea (VND55,000, ~USD2.33), a surprisingly tangy tea that hits you deep with an energetic sour note – perfect for those hot, tiring days.

Address: 28 Thảo Điền Street, Thảo Điền Ward, District 2, Hồ Chí Minh City, walk straight into the alley for several minutes and you’ll find the cafe’s entrance.
