Worst experience at Snap Cafe ever. Please DO NOT GO HERE ANYMORE.

We went here around 8 pm for dinner last night. We have 5 adults, 2 hand-carried new born babies, 1 8-yr old boy, 2 full bags of baby stuffs and 2 strollers in the party. We got the table but the waiters/waitress and the Chef Cook refused to serve us because our little boy had his Burger King food bag with him. We told them that the boy just wanted to eat a hamburger tonight, we still order something else for him and meals for 5 adults but they still refused to serve us in a rude way, especially the Chef's attitude. We understand that we could not bring outside food in but come on this is just a little boy with his favorite food while the other 5 adults can still be served. This little incident can be resulted nicely, easily and professionally but instead they let us walked out of there hungry and angry. Now in results, Snap Cafe just lost 5 frequent customers plus all of our friends on our friend lists and friends on our friend list. We will spread this bad review on all social media channels due to your bad service and lack of judgement and lack of professionalism.

Pros: food, enviroment, playground for kids
Cons: service, staff attitude, chef attitude

great setting, few vegan options

Snap Cafe is in the back of a small courtyard containing a number of expat-oriented shops. The Cafe has several seating areas, including outdoor picnic tables and indoor couches. It's very cozy. There's a very big bookshelf for those who like to read while dining. A large section of the cafe is an outdoor play area for kids, with things to climb on and a sandbox.

There are only a few things on the menu that're vegetarian and might be vegan, and the menu doesn't do a good job of making it clear whether or not those few items are vegan. The wait staff weren't sure if items I asked about were vegan.

At least one of the chefs is a native English speaker, and talking directly with him made it possible for me to confirm that the vegetarian sausages are vegan, and french fries and a salad can be substituted for the non-vegan mashed potatoes and coleslaw that normally accompany the sausages. The sausages were tasty.

I found it a little hard to figure out where to sit that wouldn't put me downwind of cigarette smoke. It seems you can smoke anywhere at Snap Cafe, and I found the smoke unpleasant.

Pros: a few vegan items on the menu, cozy, huge play area for kids
Cons: menu doesn't specify vegan items, very few options for vegetarians+vegans, cigarette smoke often in the air

I went to Snap for the first time because they were holding the future shorts night there where they were screening some local films as well as international short films, which was very interesting.
There generally is a good ambiance there. Lots of families gathering, kids playing around. The food is good, for vegetarians, if you are up for western food that is.
They do dips, veggie sausages and mash, english veggie breakie, all sorts of sandwich, soups. lentil soups, veggie samosas, etc...

Pros: relaxed ambiance, family friendly, good quality food (and clean!)
Cons: serves meat, kids around, in thao dien
