And that probably sums up the Ban Café vibe; it’s a great place to chill.

Mockingbird Cafe

Cafés need to find their own particular niche, and Mockingbird Cafe has done just that. Sat on the fourth floor of the first apartment building ever built in Saigon, the space mixes retro with funky vibes and is both a hideaway and a place to meet friends.
