Early May, Hugh and I got to spend 2 weeks in Vietnam with our families. When I was in my hometown, Danang, for a few days, my best friend Rio and her boyfriend took us to a super cool coffee shop called Six on Six. Rio sent me a photo of this place months ago, when she first moved back to Vietnam, and I knew I had to come here when I was home.
We got here close to noon on a hot summer day. It turned out that there was a power outage that’d last for a few hours (pretty normal in Vietnam). The place was so lovely that I couldn’t help begging our friends to stay. I was pretty bummed when the barista couldn’t make the usual latte or cappuccino (due to the power outage) and ended up getting regular brewed coffee. The rest of us got some fresh coconut water, chocolate milk, and sugar cane juice. In Vietnam, you drink coconut water from the coconut itself. I never get over how awesome that is.
Six on Six, or 6/6, is a little home turned coffee shop tucked away outside of the city center. In fact, the second floor is open for AirBnb renting and the first floor is a cafe. There is something about this cozy, earthy, beautiful place that makes me like it so much. Such a gem! Since it’s hidden from the busy streets, you can sit and enjoy a relaxing and calm atmosphere while sipping on your coffee. The big trees, hanging plants and a little fish pond add to the tranquil and exotic scene. I could stay here all day long.
We already had breakfast before we got here, but from what I’ve seen on its Travelocity reviews, this place clearly offers some delicious food as well. The staff was really sweet and welcoming, making it an enjoyable experience for us. Also, I thought it was really nice and considerate of the shop to provide mosquito spray. You’ll definitely need that in Vietnam.
If you’re ever in Danang (by the way, there are some of the world’s most beautiful beaches here), drop by Six on Six. I think you won’t be disappointed.
