The Youngest- Cau Ut Coffee Shop

avatar
(Edited)

In today’s society, we are inundated with various tones and colors that make us think of luxurious lifestyles. When I passed by the coffee shop " Cau Ut", these memories from the past and my childhood, from the time before subsidies were created, come back to haunt me when I see the simple decoration. For me, it's a sweet and loving name, and the name brings back happy memories.

I'm a coffee addict and like many addicts, I visit many coffee shops. It's not really possible to write all about them and sometimes I find that if I visit one that stood out for me, I'll write about it here. So let's check out what makes "Cau Ut" worth mentioning 🙂

My friend and I are actually scheduled to meet at another coffee shop, but when I pass by this coffee shop, I'm instantly intrigued and call him to switch location

In Vietnam, the youngest in the family is often referred to as the “Cau Ut”. He is loved and cared for by all their older siblings and parents. You know the reason why the name really attracts me 🙂 The coffee shop, situated in one of the busiest streets of the city and surrounded by luxurious shops, still maintains its Vietnamese traditional style, from old television to old wooden chairs around small tables.

Old Switch

Outside this shop, there are several small tables where you can relax and watch the bustling streets. In Vietnam, street coffee is a part of the culture. In most cases, locals find themselves sitting at makeshift tables with a cup of coffee in hand chatting with friends and family, but we do enjoy it 😄 This scene is common in Vietnam, so do not be surprised when you see it :)

The wall of the shop is decorated with lovely black and white pictures and fun words written in white chalk.

Every corner of the shop is very cozy. There are bookshelves lined up against one wall to provide a reading area.

The small but quaint feel of the store offers an experience, unlike any other typical large-scale shop. The unique vibe of the store is what draws me in.

I notice how clean and well organized the cafe is.The vibe is very calming and the staff are all friendly and welcoming.

The second floor is small but the view is worth it. That's what people who come up to the second floor say. The chairs beside the windows are very comfortable and you'll be able to see everything that's going on on Main Street from up there.

Some people prefer sitting upstairs, but if it's not too chilly, sitting downstairs will be airier.

It was impressive to see the Vietnamese flags and some drink bottles displayed along the corridor.

This reminds me of my childhood. Small shops that sold drinks during the subsidy period were very popular among children because these stores offered very cheap prices that made it possible for everyone to drink. For example, a small bottle of water costs only $0.05, and children could afford this price. All the children in the village loved to gather around for candy and drinks.

I like to sit at a coffee shop not just for the coffee but for the experience I get from being able to look around and observe. Sitting at a coffee shop makes me feel relaxed and it's nice being surrounded by other people while having my own space.

I find myself constantly drawn to the vintage feel or classically decorated cafes. I think it's because they seem so perfect in their own way, with all of the simple arrangements and a classical aesthetic. The emphasis on style and simplicity and the classical music bring me calm.

If you're looking for a place to go when in town, this coffee shop is highly recommended. The address is 34 Le Hong Phong Street, Hai Chau. It's pretty easy to find- you can't miss it.

P/s: Hey yeah, it's Valentine's Day today. I know many people out there, including me haha, are spending this Valentine's Day alone. Hey singles! Let's not let Valentine's Day go without celebrating our relationships, regardless of whether they're romantic! Whether you're with someone or not, there are plenty of ways to celebrate Valentine's Day with lover, friend and family. Wish you Valentine's Day full of laugh and happiness ❤️

I can understand why you enjoy going back to "Cau Ut" Coffee Shop. Who doesn't appreciate a sentimental journey down memory lane that's filled with happy childhood experiences? The views from the second floor are incredible.

In Vietnam, the youngest in the family is often referred to as the “Cau Ut”. He is loved and cared for by all their older siblings and parents.

Thank you for the story and explaining the meaning. Are you the family "Cau Ut"?
I was! @trangbaby

♥️♥️Happy Valentine's Day, Lovely!♥️♥️

Aww thanks so much Nina, I really appreciated it :) It's hard to find happy and caring childhood memories in this modern world, so the name and design of the shop are reminiscent of the childhood I had.

I'm not the youngest hehe I have 3 elder brothers 🤩

Once again, I greatly appreciated your support Nina. Happy Valentine's Day and have a wonderful week ahead, sending you !LUV

That's my kind of place, a mix of rustic and shabby chic ! I think it takes a lot of very clever design to get that look of being organically 'thrown together'.

It matter not to me what the coffee is like, I choose ambience every time.

Great post and photos and as always, my best wishes :-)

Aww thank you @nathen007. Same as me, I typically don't make it to coffee shops just for coffee. It's so relaxing to be around people who are nice, listen to soft music, and enjoy the ambiance during the morning. Not only that, it also helps with my productivity because I can focus on my work.

It's always a please everytime you stop by, much appreciated it and have a wonderful week ahead :)

Thiệt nay còn giữ được cái nhà cổ cổ giữa mấy cái nhà cao hiếm thật. Cái tiệm tạp hóa đấy nhìn giống mấy cái tạp hóa mơ ước hồi anh còn học cấp 1 mỗi lần đi học về là ghé vào mua kẹo sing gum.

I really like the style of this coffee shop! Vintage and rustic! My family used to go to a restaurant with a similar style. We all get that nostalgia feeling, don't we? I like how the benches face the windows upstairs. I would go here but I'm not much of a coffee fan. I used to drink it heavily when I was 4 though, with lots of cream of sugar! I am Cau Ut of my family hehe!
Happy Valentine's Day from one single to another lol, or as my people call it, Día del Amor y Amistad (Day of Love and Friendship).

In Vietnam, coffee is more than a drink; it's a culture. I'm addicted to coffee, you know, and I'm addicted to coffee. A day without it would not be complete for me. Well, I just told someone that I love to go to those old vintage shops as it makes me feel nostalgic..Well, we do. It's not really the coffee that I like so much, but the space and atmosphere of the coffee shops.

I know lots of sugar isn't good. Glad you changed that:)

Happy Valentine's Day :)

It's like traveling to another era, plus the name also makes me feel comfortable, of course I'm not the youngest brother in the family, but this coffee shop looks like a good place to spend an incredible time.
