A lovely cafe in the old quarter, you can see its outdoor balcony seating from the square in front of St Joseph cathedral. Perfect location Lovely coffee and delicious cake. Full menu available but we only stop for a quick snack. Work a visit :)...More

The reviews weren't great but to be honest we needed a sit down and the views looked great. We ordered drinks and bizarrely for Hanoi the beer arrived really cold!!! Having spent our trip trying to avoid westernised food we plumped for a banana leaf...More
