If you find yourself in town like I did, a stop at Buddy’s for ice cream is not a bad plan. There’s not a huge variety available, but the cookies and cream I had was smooth and tasty. Also had a lemon juice, although they went a bit heavy on the sugar.

We had ice cream in Buddy Ice Cream cafe. We can't understand what is fuss about. Ice cream tasted like something you could by in the store, service also mediocre.

Nice place for a coffee and ice cream. They also have small snacks on the menu but we didn't try those. Good place for those on a budget bc the prices are lower than in thw night market area.

Good ice-cream, fast friendly service, in the heart of Duong Dong on a corner opposite the harbour. Nice places to sit inside and out. Lots of locals and tourists too.

Ice cream by the scoop was New Zealand Natural but I had "Buddy's Addition" a scoop of chocolate and coconut icecream with toppings. My ice cream tasted like local ice cream, it was grainy and icy and not very creamy. Hubby had 2 scoops in a waffle cone which was delicious. Recommend buying by the scoop and not the sundaes...

Nothing special here, don't expect a different experience. It's simply good coffee and good ice cream. Not Vietnamese icecream. Good if thats what you are searching for, but some review saying it was the best ice cream they had in Vietnam made me thought it was going to be Vietnamese ice cream, it's not.

Ticks all the right boxes and is priced mid range between the locally run small family businesses and the hotel resorts. The staff are on their game which is a big thing in Vietnam where customer service falls down big style. We even got what we ordered to eat & drink, which was a novelty ! Very popular with western...
