After visiting more than 10 cafes in Hanoi, this is probably the cafe that serves the best egg coffee in town. Being the oldest cafe in Hanoi, the cafe is extremely populated with both tourists and locals. Be prepared to wait or see a sea of people if you visit Giang Cafe at night, after 8pm when it is the...

We were recommended this place by our tour guide as a place to try a somewhat unique "egg coffee". A crowded and popular cafe when we visited... egg coffee was definitely worth the visit if you fancy yourself somewhat of a foodie...

after google searching where to go for good Vietnamese coffee my friend found cafe Giang. I was expecting it to be westernised and over priced with it being so widely talked about online, however I was very wrong. As others have said it is down a little alley between two coffee places and is simply an array of small plastics... More

I'm here right now. Amazing egg coffee. Tried other places and this is the best. So good. Sadly, the atmosphere is horrible. Hanoi cafés are all so wonderful and eclectic. But this place has zero charm. Worse than that, it's not comfortable to to sit here for long. With short wood benches like you're eating out on the street, people... More

We were brought there by our Free Hanoi Guide, Lindh after eating Xoi Yen. Look out for their white sign board, 39 Giang Cafe which is just a few shops away from Xoi Yen. You need to walk into a small alley to reach the cafe. We went upstairs and it has a cozy and laid back feel. There's limited... More

We wanted to try Egg Coffee whilst in Hanoi and we were taken here by our guides from the Hanoikids. We went upstairs and found a small table with some low stools. All 6 of us ordered the iced egg coffee and we did not have to wait long before they were delivered to our table. Not being a coffee... More

I took some times to locate it. The address was correct but the name was different. And there were so many coffee shops along the same street. Looking from outside, the shop did not stand out from other similar shop. However the coffee was so nice, making it standing out uniquely. The Egg coffee there was so awesome, thick coffee... More
