Cộng Cà Phê @ Nu Sentral

Vietnamese Lifestyle Café Arrives in Kuala Lumpur

It started with the owners visiting Hanoi and they discovered the acclaimed Cộng Cà Phê Vietnamese coffee café. With a staggering 62 café outlets in Vietnam, the Cộng Cà Phê also has ventured its first international outlet in Korea before landing on our shore on 14 November this year.

Cộng Cà Phê started back in 2007 by a local singer as a small coffee place in the old coffee Trieu Viet Vuong street in Hanoi. Concepting the café after the singer’s own yesteryear memories of Vietnamese culture, the café oozes with warmth of a typical Vietnamese home filled with knick-knacks and books. At the same time, the coffee experience offers coffee lovers a time to sip the robust “Phin” style coffee and enjoy a moment of leisure at the café.

Cộng Cà Phê opened its first outlet in Nu Sentral. Located strategically on lower ground, the café seats 36 pax for now with two levels. A minimalist menu with signatures of variations of Vietnamese coffee as well as Western coffees and Vietnamese bánh mì sandwiches along with snacks is available for now.

The café also has some Vietnamese inspired souvenirs available for purchase…

Echoing the low seating concept in Vietnam, diners can truly enjoy the culture of the country on the ground level or head up to the regular seating that is flanked by a wall panel filled with books and other trinkets. In fact, the café’s décor, books and ornaments, are literally imported from the origin of the country to ensure its authenticity concept of the coffee chain. Staffs are dressed olive green t-shirts and caps to add to the café’s concept of Vietnam’s socialism era.
