This minimalist cafe is an ideal work station for freelancers and laptop lovers, with careful simplicity that allows for plenty of creative brain space.
Homiee, previously known as Albero, is tucked in a back-alley between Kim Ma and Giang Vo. Unlike most alleyway haunts, this one is surprisingly spacious and light with a refreshing modern design. In an otherwise traditionally Vietnamese area, the cafe stands out as an understated and simplistic haven.
Almost every surface is finished with clean, light wood: for those looking to avoid distraction, Homiee is just the clean slate needed to think. There’s no clutter on the tables and no fancy drinks on the menu, just the bare necessities. Don’t be deceived, though, despite its humble décor, there is still plenty of personality to this unique place.
It would be easy to label Homiee as ‘practical’ with sturdy desks, a number of plug points and decent wifi. However, it has so much more to offer than practicality, including rich coffee, easy-going music and helpful, responsive staff. The shelves are decked with a few vintage cameras, the counter filled with delicious cakes and both floors boast wide windows. There is even a hidden attic area filled with cosy cushions and dim mood lighting. So, if you’re fed-up with brain numbing office spaces, Homiee is the perfect alternative.
