A sister cafe to nearby Bluebird’s Nest (To Chim Xanh), The Nerd’s Nest is charming in a very different way while still maintaining an air of its older sibling.
If you’re looking for something to brighten up your day, The Nerd’s Nest may just be the life-size piece of pop art that you need. In a quiet alleyway, south of the Old Quarter, this kitsch cafe lights up the street with colorful decor and peppy knick-knacks on every surface. The vibrant color-scheme doesn’t stop there, either, with everything from the books lining the shelves to the drinks served at your table popping with dazzling shades of color.
Despite the youthful design, The Nerd’s Nest is the perfect location for a classy cuppa too. Enjoy a respectable brunch with a choice of delicious cakes or a fancy tea-for-two with an array of aromatic teas. Perhaps the most appealing part of The Nerd’s Nest, though, is its welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff. The café has a thriving community of regulars and often hosts a number of events. Activities range from a relaxed reading group to an evening of speed-dating, and regular painting classes to terrarium-making workshops. For those seeking more than a quiet coffee, this is the place to be.
