There are a few things you can always count on at Cafe TH in East Downtown. The very friendly owner will 100% remember your name from your last visit, there will be jazz playing, and you’re going to eat really good Vietnamese food. They serve a wide range of dishes, including classics like spring rolls, vermicelli bowls, and pho - but you’ll want to focus on the specialties like the vegan curry and banh mi bo kho (beef stew served with French bread). It’s open Monday through Friday for lunch, and only serves dinner on Thursday and Friday nights, so plan accordingly. Also important for your planning: it’s BYOB.
