We have a new opening in Phu My Hung. A new coffee shop has just opened in Sky Garden 3. Its name, Le Sable (“sand” in French) makes a lot of sense since they have plenty of sand inside. This time, mums and kiddos are welcome. Le Sable is a great choice for those who love to sip a relaxing cup of coffee while the little ones enjoy playing with friends. A cozy and fun place for the family.
Opposed to those big and noisy indoors playgrounds, this place is quiet (yes…quiet…not sure how they accomplish this with so many kids inside but these guys make this happen beautifully) and a perfect place to just “chill”…you can even go and work there. I did it last week. They offer free WIFI for customers. There is plenty to do here. You can make your choice among sipping a good coffee or ordering some snacks (French Fries, Honey butter bread…)
The place is full of German toys, educational books, puzzles, magnetic boards or wooden trains but the star area is the sand pool where kids will have a good time with several construction sets or trucks. The sand seems to be a special one, it does not stick so it is easy to brush off, specially designed for play zones for kids. The staff is really friendly and helpful and they honestly love kids.
Very quiet during the week, it is a little bit busy on weekends, although still relaxing anyway. The price is 60.000VND for one hour for kids between 1 and 7 years old, parents and older kids have to pay 20.000VND or simply order a drink. The babies younger than 1 year can stay for free.
