  1. Yes. In a word: meh.

    The coffee is pretty good. They say they roast their own beans.

    I've eaten there once, but had a bad enough experience I'd need to hear some big raves before going back. The bread was too hard. There was no pickled daikon/carrot. No jalapeno. There was a sweet sauce dressing the sandwich. It was a far cry from a traditional banh mi.

    1. I gave this place a second chance with their regular dac biet and it was borderline disgusting. Avoid at all costs

      1. This place just tumbled off my list.
