Ca Phe Da

Cà Phê Dá opens in Chicago serving Vietnamese-style street food.  Patrons will be able to get the traditional banh mi and Vietnamese filtered coffee.

Cà Phê Dá will focus on fun to give Chicagoans a taste of a bustling Vietnamese cafe where guests are hustling to complete work while drinking a coffee and noshing on some street fare. Danielle Dang will also oversee a tidy beverage program with five smashes and other boozy treats. The cafe has a separate entrance to the west of HaiSous’ off 18th Street. Source: Eater Chicago.
