Surprised at the great service and super polite staff. Wish we had found this place earlier as it is so unassuming.

We stopped by here after having lunch by the water at the Riverside Residence. Because it was called the "Shalom" Coffee house, i was hoping to find some bagels or other Jewish snack food, but that wasn't the case. However, we did order a coffee and a brownie while waiting for our UBER. They were both good. They have lots... More

This place was fantastic. Great mango smoothies, cookie milkshakes, vanilla milkshakes, burgers, dutch pancakes, mum thought the coffee was good and meat pies were also good. Some good not vietnamese food after a couple of weeks of travelling on Pho and spring roles etc.

Coffee fabulous! Staff amazing and friendly! Food meh! The coffee is just how I like it and should you feel the urge to lay around in the room, the friendly staff will deliver to your door. Just awesome! We've had toasties, pies and croissants. Little bit pricey in my opinion.

Nice corner coffee bar for having a refreshment juice at the falling of the evening. Offers at the menu is discrete but fine, and customer attention could be improved.

I've been a regular at one of the shalom coffee spots for nearly 2 years and I love their coffee (although expensive for VN). The spot I frequent is the Vista....apologies for the Riverside review although I have experienced all the Shalom's. Shalom has a huge congruency problem that is simply down to the owner. Great tasting coffee with a... More

A visit to shalom riverside is a welcome d2 experience. Trendy air conditioned environment, friendly welcomes and attentive service, a range of snacks including some western mains a desserts to fill the tummy! I just love the atmosphere created in this shalom. Worth finding for something different!

As I say I wasn't very impressed. Yes there is a selection but the knowledge is severely lacking about the coffee they serve.
