Eden Center Questions

What is the best Banh Mi place in the shopping center? I have been to Song Que and the small place in Eden Mall which is affiliated with a Buddhist monastery. I liked both places, especially the latter for pure taste and the former for atmosphere, service and price. There was one place, however, a few doors south of Song Que, which was absolutely horrible. I ordered two chicken Bahn Mi sandwiches that had rock hard bread and hardly any meat in them. I felt like taking the food back and demanding my money back but I had already driven off before I could take my first bite.

I also went to Pho Xe Lua for the first time and liked it a lot. The Pho was delicious and the atmosphere and service were excellent. Definitely worth return visits.

Does anyone know anything about the numerous dimly lit cafes in the shopping center (especially Cafe Mimosa)? Are they worth checking out? Do these place have anything to offer a non-Vietnamese? Do they have good, cheap Bahn Mi sandwiches and coffee?
