Cafe TH

The old Thiem Hung Bakery has been reimagined and reinvented by former patron Minh Nguyen, who bought the place - recipes and all - from its former owners and then proceeded to update the Vietnamese menu as well as the interior. The result is a vibrant, cozy neighborhood cafe that harkens back to the good old days of a bustling East End Chinatown and somehow evokes a French bistro vibe at the same time. In addition to its trademark banh mi, don't miss Cafe TH's dark, rich pho or the hearty beef stew served with French bread, banh mi bo kho. And vegetarians, take heart: Cafe TH offers plenty of vegetarian options, as well as vegan pho. Yes, vegan pho.
