The café was built on a 1-hectare area located in a quiet neighborhood in the centre of My Tho City (Tien Giang province), consisting of 3 compartments located around a lake. The idea of this special café has been nurtured by the owner, an antiquarian who has a great passion for coffee for a long time. He bought over 3000 bricks from the hundred-years-old dismantled French buildings in Tien Giang to build the café of his dream. (Photo: VOV)

After 2 years of construction, the café has been completed using old bricks, doors, and roofing tiles from the dismantled French-colonial houses, which helps to bring back the old-time memories through an airier space. The biggest compartment is the main space of the coffee shop, while the other two serve as multifunctional areas. Around the lake, the owner planted many citronella trees to create a countryside-like space. (Photo: VOV)

The cafe was built in a simple style with a touch of modernity, using unpainted brick walls to create a rustic feeling. The architects designed the café based on the natural surroundings, as trees and small canals around the area were kept unchanged to maintain the natural airy space. Photo: VOV

This special coffeeshop is a mixture of modern style and old materials, of the Western Vietnamese people’s liberal lifestyle and Europeans’ designs, of hundred-years-old antiques and the present life’s breeze. All the kinds of mixture that seemed incompatible at first, turned out to be a perfect congruous match. Photo: VOV
