11 Best Local Coffee Shops in Can Tho

Coffee shops in Can Tho

Vietnam is the world’s second-largest coffee producer. So it is no surprise that coffee shops are everywhere in Vietnam, from busy street stalls to unassuming little cafes hidden around the corner.

Vietnamese people have their own style of enjoying coffee, they do not consider coffee as a quick drink that has anti-drowsy effects but enjoy coffee as a culture of sipping and contemplation.

Vietnam in general and Can Tho city in particular, is one of the places for coffee addicts or travelers who want to experience the Vietnamese amazing local coffee culture. 

Here are top 11 of famous coffee shops in Can Tho that are provided:

1. Mr. Tu Goat Milk & Coffee Shop

Have you ever tried drinking coffee with goat milk? It sounds strange, but it is the signature of Mr. Tu’s goat milk cafe which has been located on the corner of Nguyen Thai Hoc street for more than 20 years.

Wake up early to enjoy this special goat’s milk coffee because goat’s milk is only served in the early morning.

I believe that a glass of fragrant, light-fat goat’s milk with the typical Vietnamese coffee will give you an energetic morning.
