Phong Nha Bamboo Cafe opened in July 2014 and it is owned by a local couple, Hai & Van. Hai is one of the first people who initiated tourism development in this small town, and he is a strong advocate in the community of animal and environmental welfare and conservation. He and his wife came up with the idea to create a beautiful and chill space for all travelers to stop by to enjoy great coffee and food (mostly Vietnamese food with a Western touch and some Western food options as well). It was also designed as an atmospheric place to meet other people and learn about local culture. Friendly and smiling staff are always there to serve and help you at anytime. As a local business, Bamboo Cafe prefers to employ locals from around this region to work for them. Many of them used to be farmers and had never worked in tourism before, and now they are working at Bamboo Café and largely contributing to the success of the business
