We are coffee-obsessed, and this place is AWESOME for coffee drinks. They serve traditional Vietnamese coffee, plus specialty coffee drinks. The chocolate rum drink is frothy, hot and delicious. We have been up and down Vietnam. This place is the best! You can't go wrong here. Great friendly down-home vibe, yummy drinks, wholesomely Vietnamese.

As part of our stay in Hanoi, we embarked on a coffee tour, where we attempted to sample the array of different cafes that this great city has to offer. Giang cafe was by far our favourite. As you walk down the narrow corridor entrance, still attempting to work out whether you are in the right place, you are greeted... More

It will be kinda confusing to find it in mid day.. Just look out for the big round signboard.. The egg coffee is the main attraction here.. Order for the ice one as the hot one can make it kinda sweet.. It is just the best coffee that I ever tasted..

LOVE the coffee! I ordered 2: one hot and one with ice. Hot Egg Coffee was wonderful. Small glass, 10% of black strong coffee, and 90% of egg cream. They put the small glass inside a bowl, and put hot water in it (i think so that the coffee would still be warm). First i taste the cream, very thick,... More

The egg coffee is definitely unique and must try, even for non coffee lovers. Even for the seriously non-coffee fan, the egg chocolate is equally pleasing. Although this cafe is slightly difficult to find, the efforts are more than worthwhile.

A little challenging to find, but once you do its a great littles place with locals drinking coffee and chewing on sunflower seeds. We got the egg coffee and egg chocolate (both hot). Nothing like what we expected when we heard egg coffee was egg yolk and sugar but man was it good. Shook Mr. Giang's hand on the way... More

This place is the real deal. Hidden in the back of a long narrow hallway so you can't see the crowd inside... Great place to chill with some authentic egg coffee and chew on some sunflower seeds. The place next door sneakily named themselves 39 so you might mistake their shop for this one. Look for the hallway, and sit... More
