Where: 58 Đường Nguyễn Gia Trí, Phường 25, Bình Thạnh, Hồ Chí Minh
Type: Indoor Dog Café
Yuna Alaska in the centre of Binh Thanh is not your normal café – it is more a theme café. And the theme is – dogs!!!
Yes, this is a place to have a coffee while dogs belonging to the café are running around – or just rolling around or sleeping. So if you want a quiet coffee and do nothing this is not the place to be. If you are allergic to dogs, this is 100% certain not a place for you.
But if you like dogs and you want to combine having a drink and have chance to play with dogs, then you found your place. There is not just one or two dogs, but a quite a few, including some beautiful husky dogs.
The setting of the place is obviously done to cate for the dogs. So a few tables along the wall, with space in the middle for the dogs and guests. And they serve mainly coffee and juice.
Here are some things to be aware of. The dogs are very friendly, but I would not tease them like any other dogs. The place has obviously the usual dog smell. And the dogs will do their business on the floor – but the staff is cleaning it immediately.
I enjoyed my visit there. It is a novelty, and it is not a place I would return all the time. But if you want to experience something different this might be of interest.
