First Review by ViolaineB

They've got a good veggie burger. - Edit

Happy Cow doesn't allow 5 stars for a non-veg restaurant, but I'd rate it with 5 for the burger deal. If you go on Wednesday (burger day) you get the veggie burger (w/ side fries and salad) plus two free drinks (beer, wine or cola) and for 170k, it's not a bad deal. Other veg options, but haven't tried. A good place to go with a group of mixed diets.

Pros: Wednesday Burger Day , Veggie burger

Good range of options - Edit

The veggie burger is really good. So is the veggie sausage and mash. The chef was kind enough to let me know that he used duck fat in the tortillas, so avoid the mexican dishes! Great smoothies too!

Pros: veggie burger, veggie breakfast, good service

Cons: tortillas use duck fat

terrible service - Edit

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 - Edit

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

good if you miss english food! - Edit

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
