The Avenue Cafe
The Avenue Café is only five months old and located in the tourist district of Ho Chi Minh City, a walkable distance from main attractions such as the Central Post Office, Opera House, Notre Dame Cathedral and Nguyen Hue, the pedestrian street. This café has three floors, all of which are attractively and comfortably decorated, and with specific themes. It is a very Instagrammable place. The third floor is called the “green floor” and is usually where the laptop users hang out, working to light jazz melodies in the background, but if you are looking for a warm space for a date, the second floor with pink decor is where you need to sit.
The café has a menu of delicious coffee and meals, including great choices for brunch. Their unique Avocado Burger and Creamy Passion Pasta (passion fruit flavored) are worth a special mention. The atmosphere is very gay-friendly, attracting local and international LGBT customers and the owner Yoonie, is happy to provide information about the local gay scene. Order their signature drink – the Avenue Latte, and you can have a custom photo printed on the froth. It is printed using all edible color ink, so there is no harm at all.
