Loft Cafe – Pasteur

August 9, 2016
Loft Pasteur

The sister cafe of Loft Cafe Ly Tu Trong, what it lacks in power points it makes up for in natural light.

From the photo, you can see that they’ve also tried to give a nod to the huge clock-like skylight from Ly Tu Trong in this metalwork partition.


What attracted me to Loft in the first place is that it offers jobs to former disadvantaged youth. It’s also located in older walkup flats, which I personally love.


The Pasteur St cafe is located on the 2nd floor (That’s American second floor, first floor for the Australians and Brits) in an little block of flats with open air parking for a pile of bikes.

Signage is pretty clear, so you’ll find it ok!


I only came for breakfast and stayed until 11am, but it seemed quieter than its Ly Tu Trong counterpart, which is perfect for working from.

In fact, someone else had the same idea and was already plugged in and typing away when I arrived.

It’s lighter and brighter, and has a small side section fitted with couches if you don’t really need to be plugged in.

Does It Serve Food

Yes, and it’s good. It also serves what I think is called banh mi chao, which is delicious! There’s lunch specials and a great breakfast menu.

Lunch Rush

Can’t say as I wasn’t there, but I’d hazard that it isn’t teeming.


Yes, and it worked! Probably less load.

Power Points

Due to more windows, there were obviously less walls for powerpoints. There are 3 main spots for ergonomic seats with power points, and the rest are comfier couches and seating – perfect for slouching in, if that’s your style.


Yes! You can type without throwing out your back.

Address: 95 Pasteur, District 1. Walk in and through the bike parking, it’s well signed so just follow the signs.
