Dropped in for lunch after a mornings shopping at Saigon Square 1. It adjoins the shopping centre. Getting service was a little challenging. But food was ok - we had the burgers which were quite nice. Served with fries. Coffees, Frappe and juices totalled $873k...More

Beverages were a bit expensive. Ok it's "chic" restaurant, somehow. But on 3 drinks, we get 1 wrong. Staff nice but inexperienced. We couldn't split the check with cash and credit card. I don't mind to pay a bit more in this kind of restaurant...More

I came to Caffe Fresco around 9 PM for a late dinner. They were mostly empty so I got my pick of seating. My matcha iced green tea was fantastic, and the Vietnamese vermicelli with spring rolls was fresh and hot. Everything was reasonably priced,...More

We went to Fresco on 3 occasions and enjoyed each visit. It gave you the opportunity to watch the world go by and the never ending amazement at the varying ways people try to cross the road. Pavements, ostensibly for pedestrians, also serve as rat...More

Description
The 70s and the 80s were difficult times in Viet Nam, both socially and economically, so it was hard to imagine a cup of pure, unadulterated coffee. During those 20 plus years, techniques were perfected in the blending just a tiny bit of coffee in with other additives such as soy beans, roasted corn kernels, foaming agents, and other artificial flavors and thus, became the "traditional" coffee of the Vietnamese. As a result, the "traditional" coffee of Vietnam was one of the causes for many health concerns such as cancers and heart problems occurring amongst the people who consumed coffee ... yet all major coffee chains continue to use these techniques. After exhaustive research and testing, FRESCO perfected a recipe to bring to coffee connoisseurs a wonderful coffee made from 100% Arabica beans more flavorful than other "traditional" coffees. FRESCO guarantees that our coffee contains no other additives or flavor enhancers. We are so confident our product that we will fully refund your money if you are not satisfied with your iced-coffee at FRESCO. At FRESCO, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the many other products we offer such as Espresso, Cappuccino, Latte, Coffee Frappe, and Italian Soda. Besides coffee, we also offer a variety of fruit shakes, yogurt shakes, and an assortment of tea flavors sure to please your wide-range taste buds.
