HCM CITY — A pet-themed café in Saigon contains alpacas and turtles for animals lovers to play with while sipping a cup of coffee.
Customers at Pet Coffee Garden at 91A Bình Long Street in Bình Tân District can pet exotic animals in addition to dogs and cats, and can also bring their own pets.
Kids and adults can play with two South America alpacas that the owner bought two months ago. They were imported from the Netherlands for a total price of VND200 million (US$8,600). "They are gentle and friendly," Dương Siếu Hòa, the owner, said.
The shop also has an African spurred tortoise, also called the sulcata tortoise, that roams around freely for visitors to pet and admire.
The 800-sq m café has a garden and air conditioned rooms. During weekends it sees 300 customers and regularly organises meetings for pet lovers. — VNS
