Catinat Cafe

Catinat Cafe is the place that sheltered us for an hour before a boat trip to Vung Tau, away from the madding crowd of cyclo drivers that hunt tourists in the shipyard area. It is located at the Northern end of Dong Khoi, just across the street from Majestic Hotel.

It's nice and comfy, but not one of the nicest in town. And definitely not well stocked. We had to browse the menu three times, as what we wanted was not available. Moreover, as a customer, mastering body-language is always a plus - the waiters do not speak any word of English, even if you would expect that in such a touristy area.

In spite of all these shortcomings, we had a nice time. The fresh juices and coffee are nice, the decor is pretty cheerful and the wi-fi connection works well.  All in all, a good place to stop by or to wait for the hydrofoil to Vung Tau.
