Or how about sustainable restaurants in Dalat that offer food made from locally grown ingredients, that are composting and sorting their garbage, banning straws and plastic bottles?

In this case, you can check out One More Café (western food and English Breakfast) and K’Be Wood Fired Pizza (as the name says, excellent pizza and home-made beer).

But Dalat is also a city of gorgeous cafés and coffee shops. Sometimes we all need a place to chill and sip a nice locally grown cup of coffee or a delicious smoothie.

Sustainable shops in Dalat


We are super happy and proud of this particular section because of so many great initiatives and kind-hearted shop owners in Dalat.

If you crave natural soap bars and essential oils produced in Dalat you should visit Quán Của Thời Thanh Xuân, translated the café of the youth, where people with hearing losses get jobs and training as baristas and soap bar production. This place not only is environmentally valuable but also socially.

Moreover, there is also a place that makes and sells local handicrafts. Labata Handmade Shop is famous for its signature notebooks but also cute souvenirs, accessories, jewelry, and more – all handmade.

What’s missing? The clothes. But we got it all here. At the n°3 Black Cat Second-Hand stores in the city, you can find selected secondhand clothing items for women, babies, and men! We also list other secondhand stores on the map, find them all 😉

Sustainable farms in Dalat


We couldn’t talk about Dalat, without mentioning farms, since the city is an agricultural hub for the whole country of Vietnam.

Yet, we have specific requirements when recommending farms. They should function in a way that is also working well for bees, meaning banning the use of herbicides, pesticides and possibly including flowers that keep pollinators alive and happy all year round.

Some of the farms on the map are also vendors at the Organic Farmer’s Market Dalat. We encourage you to visit and talk to the farmers there or contact them through the contact info we provide you on the map in the farm section.

There are several beautiful coffee farms for example Bui Farm, Midori Farm, The Story Coffee

And one super lovely female goat farmer: Gates of Dawn Garden

Vegetable farmers: Smile Garden (Nha Cuoi)

Essential oil herbal farmer: The Seed Garden
