Very nice place for a casual lunch in Hanoi's Old Quarter. Good food variety, choices of set menus and very good service for fair price. Worth a try!

Stopped in for coffee and the kids wanted deserts. Was good as a mid afternoon break from walking the Old Quarter of Hanoi. Did not eat any other food.

This café had very comfy chairs with cushions on top. It was very loud here - probably because of it being on a shopping road - however, it was in the right place. They had good pictures on the walls of all kinds of things....More

We had a quick stop for juice and drinks while trying to escape from the traffic madness. The cafe itself was not very busy but the traffic was still clearly audible outside! Drinks came fairly swiftly, loos were OK.

A small restaurant in busy "Old Hanoi". We started with fried spring rolls, followed by a tasty chicken soup. We shared dishes of book Chou, fried egg plant, park and chicken. Everything was well prepared and yummy.
