Do you believe that vintage cameras and decor don’t go together? This should persuade you to reconsider.
What should you do with a beautiful but broken camera? You are not the first person to pose this question to yourself. As an answer, Mr. Nguyen Hoang Nam began collecting them as a child and now has over 700 film cameras in his Coffee shop.
When it first opened a year ago, the Like coffee and tea café in Nga Bay city exposed 500 cameras. It now has 700 cameras decorating the shop from floor to ceiling. Mr. Nam’s collection includes branded film cameras from Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Mamiya, Minolta, Ricoh, and Yashica, among others. The majority of the cameras are several decades old, but some are still operational.
The atmosphere at Like Coffee & Tea Café is clear, vintage, urban, and minimalist. There is a desire to combine natural materials with neutral colors. The camera has a black, discreet, and elegant appearance that draws the eye without oversaturating it. There is a desire to tell a story in this coffee shop, as well as an invitation to remember.
The cafe is open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., with parking, and offers a varied menu of coffees, smoothies, yogurt, milk tea, soda… Prices range from 17,000 to 38,000 VND per cup.
Of course, the shop is crowded from morning to evening because visitors to Like coffee & tea café are well taken care of, whether they are fans of cameras or just good coffee. This is a one-of-a-kind coffee shop that should be visited if you’re in Nga Bay, Vietnam.
