Specialty cafes are not rare in Saigon, but few of them can provide both top-notch drinks and a getaway space from all the urban hustles.
At The Hummingbird Cafe & Roastery, apart from flavorful coffee made by experienced roasters and baristas, you can also get some fresh air in an old Indochinese-styled house hidden in a serene Saigon alley.

In Saigon, many appreciate serene spaces such as The Hummingbird Cafe & Roastery. Though situated in District 1, it is in a deep alley which allows you to get away from noises and bustling traffic.

In fact, in the cafe’s yard, you can enjoy yourself while sitting on a long bench along a soil path. The atmosphere is refreshing thanks to many shadowy plants across the yard and the eye-pleasing white tone of the building.
Part of the yard is also covered with transparent panels to maximise natural light, making the place much airier.

The Võ Thị Sáu branch of The Hummingbird Cafe & Roastery is a renovated small house dating from the 1950s. Preferring lesser-known old buildings, the owners of this cafe didn’t focus on completely reconstructing the building but instead maintained the existing design.

That’s why at this cafe, you can feel a strong vintage vibe not just from the look of the building but also from smaller details such as symmetrical pattern tiles, flowery window frames, faded walls, and wooden chairs.

Using these original ingredients, the baristas here offer 8 signature drinks. For something strong and dense to boost your concentration, an Afterglow, or cold milk with ristretto without ice, will be a nice choice. If you’d like a more original treat, try the Douhua or maple ginger panna cotta ice latte, among many other interesting options.
If you are looking for a quick escape from the urban hustle of Saigon, visit The Hummingbird Cafe & Roastery this weekend.
The pleasant space filled with sunlight and plants, together with tasty original specialty coffee, will boost up your energy for a new week.
