The Cart is pretty quiet about its achievements. Other cafes come and go but this consistently dishes up great food every day. I'd recommend the Cornish pasties and their BLT is probably the best in town. The only decent bacon sandwich I've found locally too. The coffee is consistently spot on.

Been a long time customer of The Cart in the centre of town but only just moved into Nghi Tam where this outlet is open.

The Cart serves Punto Italia coffee, sandwiches, pies, pasties, cakes and a wide range of juices, lassis and smoothies. In addition we offer a daily specials board to suit the season so there's soup to help you through Hanoi's cold winters and salads for when you want something lighter mid summer. We have free WIFI.
