A Community Market at Dune 45 Cafe in Danang Vietnam

Hello Friends.

If you’re looking for a place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, then a coffee shop blended into the jungle is the perfect place for you. You can sip on your favorite coffee while taking in the sights and sounds of the jungle. And if you’re feeling adventurous, you can even explore the jungle itself. Just be sure to watch out for the animals!

Lol, Jk. Today I went to a little coffee shop on the city side of Danang to check out a community market. The place is called “Dune 45 Cafe”. I am not sure why it is called “Dune”, as there are no dunes or sandworms, or Fremen People… or at least I did not see any.

I did see a nice coffee shop with a busy little community market. So I did what I do and took some photos of this to share with you.

Here is the location :

Dune 45 Cafe

There are several doors to enter Dune 45. The first is for the coffee stand, and the other is for the jungle-like garden. The community market was in the garden side of the cafe, so that is where I adventured first.

The market was tightly packed, but still, the feeling of it being in a jungle was fun. The leaves a nice impression on one when they walk in.

One of the best things about community markets is that they bring people together. It’s a great way to get to know your neighbors and support local businesses. I always enjoy browsing the stalls and seeing what new things are being offered.


I can think, that during the week, they must have little tables out here to sit at and enjoy a coffee. However, for now, it’s a community market with kids running around and vendors vending local crafts and more.


Looking back towards the way I walked in, you can get a sense of the forest around you. This coffee shop is also located close to the international airport and next to downtown Danang, however, you feel like you are lost in the jungle here. Lots of overgrowths, and green… it’s quite cool.


Hanging above you are lights that have seen a lot of weather. I will make a note to come here one night to see what it looks like when it is lit up. I think, perhaps it will look magical.


They also have a tow-behind trailer that for now has books in it. I think during the week, perhaps they serve coffee from it? Again, not sure, but it has a nice feeling of bohemian life to it.

When it comes to bohemian lifestyle vibes, I feel most welcomed by the earthy colors and natural materials used in the bohemian decor. I love how bohemian homes often have a rustic feel with vintage furniture and plenty of plants. I also appreciate the laid-back atmosphere of the bohemian lifestyle – it’s the perfect way to live if you want to feel like you’re on a permanent vacation.


Next to the trailer, is a garden sitting place. When I went it was raining a little, if there was no rain, it would be quite nice to sit here with a friend and have a coffee, talk about life, and enjoy the mellow vibes of the garden.


Inside the Co-working space / covered drinking location, are more seats and this is where people work on laptops. I did not get to do a speed test, but there were about 4 people on laptops, so I have to assume the wifi is ok.


A design element in Vietnamese design I like is the Koi ponds that are in most places. The photo doe snot does justice, but there are bunches of fish, doing their fish thing in this pond. I hope, part of their fish thing is eating the mosquitos.


If you’re looking for a small, beautiful natural space to work in the center of the city, look no further than Dune 45! The drinks are ok, and it’s a very reasonable place to work for nomads.


Walking into the main coffee shop, you transition from outside to inside.


Eddison-styled light bulbs are becoming increasingly popular as people seek out more unique and stylish ways to light their homes. While they may be more expensive than traditional bulbs, they offer a number of benefits that make them worth the investment. They’re more energy-efficient, longer-lasting, and give off a softer, more inviting light. So if you’re looking for a way to add a little personality to your home’s lighting, consider investing in some Eddison bulbs as Dune 45 did. Just check out how hip they look.


The prices were not too bad, think I paid 35,000 VND for a coffee.


The staff did not speak that much English, but that was ok. They were all friendly and seemed to be enjoying their time. So, I enjoyed my time as well. 😀


Overall, I enjoyed my time in the small natural space in the center of the city. The coffee was great and the community was warm and welcoming. I would recommend this experience to anyone looking for a great cup of coffee and some good company.

What do you think?
