Sống Cà Phê in Bình Thạnh is defined by its open, bright and modern spaces across both of its floors. Much of the tall ground floor features floor to ceiling glass with an abundance of light flowing in. The theme is cleanly designed with touches of greenery throughout.
Being situated on a corner, the cafe uses the two sides of its venue to create two “coves” of sunny seating space. In the interior, a row of tables run through the middle of the space, while the serving counter along the far wall sports bar stools for sitting where the action is.
Upstairs is labeled as a “Study Cafe” that features plenty of table space, strong Wi-fi and an idyllic environment to set up a laptop or pull out some books to study or work. And it lives up to this, it really is a perfect spot to have some productive time. It even has tools along its expansive front window giving a nice vantage point to watch the street below.
Now for the coffee. Sống Cà Phê has a well rounded range of drinks on offer… all the espresso based drinks, Vietnamese drinks and a complete range of hand drip / pour over styles such as V60, Chemex, Kalita, Aeropress, etc. They make their own single origin Coldbrew coffee served by the bottle.
Coffee is roasted in-house on-site every morning. Offering both Vietnamese coffees but also international beans from the likes of Kenya, Ethiopia, Honduras and El Salvador. All at a reasonable price across the board. The Latte was nicely prepared, a good amount of flavour, strength and texture. Their Coldbrew was bright and cheerful in taste, very easy drinking. All of this can be paired with a very decent selection of cakes and baked goods such as cookies and croissants.
Overall its a relatively peaceful environment, set to a lite sound track of various music genres. Staff are friendly and attentive during your stay. Sống Cà Phê would be a great addition to your cafes to try list.
