In the last few years, cafes dedicated to cà phê sữa đa (Vietnamese coffee) have swept the Seattle landscape. Brewed with a phin filter, served over ice, and strong enough to jolt the heart of even the most dedicated of caffeine addicts, it's no wonder the beloved beverage has won the hearts of coffee-loving locals. Here, we've gathered a list of places where you can find Vietnamese-style coffee. For more ideas, check out our food and drink guide.

Aroom Coffee Add to a List
This Vietnamese cafe with a chic, minimalist aesthetic debuted in Fremont in late July. The menu includes sesame lattes, phin-brewed Vietnamese coffee, egg coffee, salted coffee, avocado coffee, coconut affogato, matcha, iced teas, and more. To eat, there's family-recipe xoi man (a sticky rice dish with Chinese sausage, pork floss, dried shrimp, fried eggs, quail eggs, Vietnamese pork roll, and house special sauce, available on weekends only) and savory waffles with a choice of cheese filling or pâté with salted shredded pork.
