Spearheaded by the charming Mr. Luan, House of the Youth (Thời Thanh Xuân
) is a quaint little café run by a team dedicated to one social mission: empowering the deaf. The premise of the café is rather unique – you are encouraged to sit in silence and only whisper among your friends. To order, you simply point at an item on the menu. The teas are made from in-house grown ingredients, the coffee from nearby farms and the desserts homemade. What adds to the uniqueness is that there is no indication of price – the café is run on donations. Make sure to head into the small store full of handmade chocolates, candies, soaps, shampoos, essential oils, tea, coffee, and wooden kitchen tools, all made by the team. Mr. Luan spends his time teaching the team the beauty in making arts and crafts. Any money earned from these will go towards supporting the cause.
