I wasn't sure when exactly Saigon joined this whole industrial vintage cafe rush but it couldn't have been more than 3 years ago when I last left the city feeling accomplished for having spent a quiet afternoon being seen in Highlands Coffee. With its abundance of old buildings and vintage ware (some still in use), I suppose it is not hard at all to get something going, and I'm certainly delighted to have found a string of charming cafes dotting the entire District 1 area.
