Coffee tasted amazing, like a coffee zabaglione! Cost 80,000 for two egg coffees and a black coffee. Look for the entrance down a tiny alley from the street.

This coffee bar is not easy to find - small and inconsiderable entrance from Nguyen Huu Huan road. Egg coffee (hot or cold) is awesome and great value for just VND 20k. Definitely worth a little searching. Would recommend to sit in the first floor - nice atmosphere.

Considering the high quality of Vietnamese coffee in general, plus our experiences with some great coffee places in the likes of New York, The... More

Egg mixed into coffee sounds absolutely disgusting but you will be pleasantly surprised by the taste of it! It is so freaking delicious! I had the hot egg coffee and my husband had the cold and we both finished our cups in about 3 sips. It was that good! It's super cheap and the coffee shop is cozy. Just give... More

All I can say is if you are a big coffee lover like me then please don't leave Hanoi without trying an egg coffee out at this amazing cafe. It's a little hard to find, you need to go down the small lane and then it's a cafe which is upstairs. Note there is a cafe called 'cafe 39' which... More
