Saigon Tips (4)

Terrace Cafe: Crowded Cafe

Terrace Cafe (situated at ground floor and 1st floor) of Saigon Center was crowded when we were there. Ultimately, we managed to get seats space and ordered some food and drinks. The place serves vietnamese dishes and western dishes.

Free Wifi is available to all guest without login procedures.

Saigon Cafe: Cheery and good variety breakfast place

Located at the 1F of Sheraton Hotel Ho Chi Minh along Dong Khoi street. Cheery green rattan furniture greets you along with the huge white and yellow coffee cups. :)

Smoking and non-smoking sections are allowed. Ambience is informal. I did not see any preferred attire. Guests in shorts/slip ons mingle with those wearing coats. Coat hangers and high chairs for kids are available. A funny looking sign that says "Do not handle food" is placed alongside Vietnamese wicker/wire statues.

A pho table is set across the miso/congee table which also doubles as the egg station. Tea pots/carafes are given whenever you ask for coffee or tea.

Cafe staff are quick to clear out used dishes. Sometimes, too quick since I've seen 2 guests complain of having their table cleared when they were still choosing food among the buffet spread.

We asked for brie cheese that was not readily included among the cheese board and they easily obliged.

Dinner buffet was $31 while breakfast was cheaper.

I can see this outlet doing very good as long as they work some more on the graciousness of service.

Favorite Dish Choco danish warmed thru the special danish warmer.

Smoked salmon slices paired with optional horseradish paste and topped with capers.

Fresh pears that are really crisp and sweet.

Goc Saigon Restaurant: Cheapest Rooftop in Downtown?

this restaurant is on the roof of the Saigon Tax building directly across the street from the Rex Hotel. It is the building with the A/C mall and two Highlands Coffee shops, one on the 3rd and one on the 4th floor. The food menu is somewhat limited and although on the pricey side, is rather cheap considering the location and fantastic view. Probably the cheapest rooftop restaurant in this prime downtown area. Really enjoyed just sitting there in the early evening, watching the traffic down below and listening to the sounds of bustling Saigon wind down at the end of a hectic day. Food was pretty good too.

Favorite Dish Fried Calamari w/Thai dipping sauce.
