Coffee shops are abundant in Chicago and residents of our Chicago Catalyst community have many choices nearby. However, if you are looking for a hip new place to check out, take a quick drive down south and visit Ca Phe Da Vietnamese Cafe.
Vietnamese Cafe Culture
Cafes are everywhere in Vietnam and many locals often enjoy going to one to relax with friends. These cafes not only offer many different coffee beverages but also several savory dishes as well.
At Ca Phe Da, you can enjoy being at a Vietnamese cafe without having to leave the country. The menu here features a lot of the same delicious food and drinks that can be found in Vietnam. This is a chance to give your taste buds an interesting cultural experience.
Vietnam is one of the largest producers of coffee in the world. As a result, the country has developed different styles of drinking coffee that are not commonly found in other places.
If you are an avid fan of coffee, come to Ca Phe Da to try out some unique ways of enjoying this beverage. Iced coffee with sweet condensed milk (or “ca phe da”, which is what the cafe was named after) is the most popular among both Vietnamese and non-Vietnamese people alike. Additionally, coffee with egg custard is a must-try for those who have never had it before. It originated in Northern Vietnam and is something that a lot of expats there rave about.
Sweet and Savory Dishes
Ca Phe Da also offers a wide selection of solid food for customers to enjoy with their cup of coffee. If you are craving something sweet, definitely try one of the store’s pastries. The pandan brioche and the coconut buns are both popular options. If you are looking for something more savory, we highly recommend ordering one of the famous Vietnamese sandwiches or rice dishes.
