If you are looking for some of the best cafes in Hanoi, Vietnam. I got them here for you! Vietnam exports a lot of coffees and one in every two house runs a coffee shop! Some are Instagram worthy, some are questionable. Choices are unlimited so, I pulled my socks, researched and went in a lot of them to share my best ones here.

10 must-see cafes in Hanoi, Vietnam

  1. 6 degrees

    It is halfway between Hanoi old quarter and Westlake. If you don’t pin it in google maps, you are sure to miss this hidden gem! I walked from my accommodation at the West Lake, took about 15mins but you can also call a grab or if you are driving yourself, parking is available too. Once you are there (address below), head right into the lift and press 6 degrees. You will be welcomed with warm smiles at the door. Simple decor, big floor, nice balcony views but take the stairs or lift for the floor above. This is where you can get the best open-air West Lake view in Hanoi. I was impressed with the view, food and my mango juice! Must go cafe when in Hanoi.

  2. Trill Bistro and Cafe

    Believe it or not, this is the interior of a cafe! Trill is located in the Old Quarter, Hanoi. From outside it doesn’t look anything special but once you pass the entrance, fishes and go at the back or upstairs, you are in a lovely little world of Trill. If you are anything like me, you will like their idea of cafe interior with a cozy bed, unique pieces of furniture, green/white tiles, and plants everywhere. It was such a refreshing place in the middle of hustle and bustle of Old Quarter. Truly a hidden gem and another must-see cafe in Hanoi. PS: Trill also has a sister restaurant with a swimming pool.

  3. Cafe Artisée

    Everybody who has travelled to Hanoi has seen St Josephs Cathedral from the street level. But I wanted to see it in a different angle. This is where I found Cafe Artisee which is only a few steps away from the Cathedral. They do good coffee, cakes and views from the balcony are definitely worth it.

  4. Eden Coffee

    Eden Coffee is perfect if you want a closer look of mysterious St Josephs Cathedral. It is the last cafe on the left of the Cathedral. They also do good coffees and one of the staff also helped me with the language barrier with my grab driver. All the floors are filled with creative wall arts, quotes, pretty lights on the rooftops and quirky furniture. I loved the vibe there. If I had more time that evening, I would have happily worked there on my Laptop. It is another must-see cafe in Hanoi.

  5. Odeon brasserie

    Have you ever tried egg coffee? Sounds weird right? Basically, it is traditionally prepared with egg yolks, sugar, condensed milk and robusta coffee. When it comes out on your table, it would be a little cold so the idea is to stir it so the coffee and egg white mixes. Give it a go here at the Odeon Brasserie, they also have a good selection of wines on the next floor.

  6. The Note Cafe

    I noticed the Note cafe when one of the cafe staff was at the cafe door and waving her hands trying to get people’s attention. She was smiling and friendly. So, I thought I will have a look. You have to order and pay at the entrance and go pick your seat wherever you like over the 3 floors. Every inch is covered with inspiring notes but don’t worry there is still some space left for your notes! It was cute how they stick a note on your drink. I must say the inside of this cafe is impressive but I think I have seen it somewhere else too maybe it was online ( was it the pizza place covered with the notes in the states?) Either way, this is another cafe, you would have fun checking it out while in Hanoi.

  7. Nona Cafe

    One day while strolling about the old quarter, I bumped into this hidden quaint Nona Cafe. Decorated with vintage types of types of furniture, interior and rooftop with hanging faded umbrellas. It seemed like they also run an art exhibition once in a while. It makes me happy to find somewhere so quiet and hidden in the middle of the chaotic old quarter of Hanoi. I could sit there for hours and work. It helps that the whole cafe vibe is Instagram worthy!

  8. Mystic Coffee

    If you would like to be away from the hustle and bustle of Old Quarter then head to Westlake. Grab costs only 25000 vnd ($1.50) and you are in the quieter area of Hanoi. When I first find this place, I was so happy I went there two days in a row! You can also jog, run and walk around the lake. There are many other cafes in this lane but I liked their smoothie and staffs are nice. I recommend heading to the cafe in the afternoon to watch the sunset and have a drink or a smoothie.

    Address: 107H Làng Yên Phụ, Yên Phụ, Tây Hồ, Hà Nội, Vietnam
    Hours: Monday- Sunday 10AM – 10PM

  9. Cong Ca Phe

    Cong Ca Phe has various branch in Hanoi. I really liked the one in Tay ho Lake though. Nice rooftop views of the lake and the interior is unique. In the mornings, you could sit there and work quietly before the crowd starts to come or go up the roof in the afternoon to enjoy the sunsets. I can recommend trying cold coconut coffee.

  10. Baked by Julie

    When I found out, there is this Pink cafe in Hanoi. I had to go to see it for myself and as you can see it really was all pink! They do the beautiful baked goodies, fresh juices and smoothies. Once again, loved the interior and exterior in this cafe. Only a few blocks away from the train street, it is another must-see cafe in Hanoi.

  11. Bonus: Serein Cafe

    Classic setting, rustic interior and the super good view of Long Bein bridge is what Serein Cafe is all about. The bridge lights up in the evening and the bustling traffic flows by while you sip on a good cocktail or coffee/tea. I recommend visiting during the afternoon for that beautiful sunsets view overlooking the bridge and the surrounding areas or at night for that serene moonlight!

    What I used to take these photos:

    Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II Digital Camera

    GoPro HERO4 Silver

    This is the good old Go pro that I take with me everywhere. I recommend it because it is small, lightweight and waterproof. I have had made many memories with this trusted item and looking forward to more.

    SanDisk 64 GB Memory Cards

    I have been using SanDisk since my first camera which was back in 2009. They build quality memory cards. I recommend getting at least two, just in case something happens to one of them.

    All-in-One Memory Card Reader

    Do you think it’s a hassle of plugging your camera into your computer? This memory card reader will fit cards of all sizes and make an easy transfer to your computer. The reader supports all popular SD memory card formats, including SD™/SDHC™/SDXC™ memory cards, UHS-I SDHC/SDXC memory cards, and microSDHC™/microSDXC™ memory cards. It is also compatible with the latest UDMA 7-enabled CompactFlash cards.

    The Note Cafe has to be my favorite of all the cafes just because I love their beautiful outdoors! The top umbrella views looks so intriguing! I would sit there all time!

    Aww man – I wish I had this list when I was in Vietnam in November 2016! We went to a couple of cafes but they weren’t nearly as cute as the ones on this list. Especially loving that millennial pink one! Too cute!
