Cộng Cà Phê’s enchanting story began in 2007 on a quaint coffee street in the heart of Hanoi, Vietnam. Founder Linh Dung, a former performance artist, infused Cộng Cà Phê with a soulful narrative inspired by her cherished childhood memories of Hanoi during the subsidy period from 1976 to 1986. Dung’s keen eye for aesthetics breathed life into Cộng, creating a new trend in vintage café design that captured the essence of Vietnam’s cultural heritage.

The name “Cộng” is simply taken from the first word of Vietnam’s official name:

Cộng hòa xã hội chủ nghĩa Việt Nam

(The Socialist Republic of Vietnam)
