After a morning seeing the sights, we recalled visiting this cafe on our previous visit to HCM City and decided to sample the menu again. Nothing has changed in the interim, same excellent service, excellent cappuccino and blueberry smoothie, great value. So enjoyable, we visited twice during our stay in the City.

We loved our time in Vietnam, but the coffee was a difficult thing for us, the happier we were when we found the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. The cappuccino was the best ever in the whole country, and the staff was so friendly! It was a bit expensive for Vietnam, but for the quality we were happy to pay... More

Coffee bean and tea leaf have done a good job at maintain standards generally with each roll out of a new store in Vietnam. Consistent menu offerings, part of day F&B specials and consistent preparation of the drinks and food. Service goes up and down, don't expect smiles most of the time. Wifi available as is AC environment.

Coffee was good. Highly recommend the Vietnamese iced white coffee. Service was good and fast. Expensive by local standards but not overly so. Good wifi. AC just when you need it (we'd walked 2km and were overheating fast).

Great spot to have lunch and pick up a quick sweet treat. Food was quick to be served, would not say it was the best I had in Vietnam.

Before I could contemplate navigating a street in Saigon, I needed to ensure I am of sound mind and body. To do that, I needed a double shot of something..in this case it was a coffee at Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf

Although clean and comfortable, beyond the standard espresso drinks (and teas) the menu is not extensive. Competitors offer smoothies and food, for example. The Coffee Bean is good if all I want is a latte.

Located opposite the Ben thanh markets and under pho 2000 it's in a great spot. We visited twice and weren't overly impressed but not too disappointed either. Does a decent cappuccino and the iced coffee is pretty good too. Staff are friendly and very helpful to one another if the language barrier is getting in the way. It was nice... More
