Visit Café Mollie and try Vietnamese coffee!

Café Mollie in Uptown Phoenix has just opened and you just have to visit this amazing coffeehouse. Let us tell you why!

This coffeehouse located near Artichoke Basille’s Pizza serves items from Southeast Asia: bubble waffles (including pandan waffles), calamansi ade, and boba tea. The bubble waffles look like a larger version of bubble wrap. There are the delectable sweets from Süss Pastries, which come in regular and gluten-free.

The owners are James and Victoria Hyunh. The inspiration for the plant-themed coffeehouse came from James’ home country of Vietnam. In Vietnam coffee shops stay open later, therefore Café Mollie doesn’t close until 8 or 9 p.m.

There are a basket of blankets resting on the lawn in front of the coffeehouse so people can sit on it during open mic events or when they’re playing board games.

Inside Café Mollie there are plants in every corner which makes the interior very serene. Wicker and wood chairs are paired with round marble-top tables. One corner boasts a large rattan chair with a golden balloon arch with a sign that reads, “Serial Plant Killer” – a perfect Instagram photo op!

We highly recommend ordering the Vietnamese coffee (cà phê sữa đá) with a pandan waffle. It’s the perfect taste of James’s native culture.

When you order the Vietnamese coffee, you receive a tall glass of ice, a small glass cup with a metal filter, and two or three tablespoons of condensed milk. The coffee drips through the filter into your cup. Once the coffee brews, mix it well with the condensed milk and pour it into your tall glass. You’ll be surprised at the silky-smooth flavor.

A pandan waffle (bánh kẹp lá dứa), a Vietnamese street food, is made by brewing aromatic pandan leaves and adding coconut flakes. Pandan imparts a sweet flavor and green hue to the waffle. In fact, if you want an authentic experience, eat the waffle plain. It pairs well with the coffee.

This coffeehouse is one where you relax and take your time enjoying a delicious coffee in a  good company or with a good book!

“I wanted to open a café that is not Starbucks, where people rush in and out. I want people to come and stay for a while whether it’s to work or catch up with friends. Plus, our coffee tastes better.”

Hours: 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Saturday; 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Su
