Giang Cafe was founded by My Father ,Mr. Nguyen Giang in 1946, when he was working as a bartender for the famous five-star Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi hotel. Although the cafe has been relocated twice, its egg coffee recipe is almost the same as in its early days, with its chief ingredients being chicken egg yolk, Vietnamese coffee powder, sweetened condensed milk, butter and cheese.

I suppose it's easily miss if u walk pass the street fast. My second coffee of the day. Thinking it is a no miss place base on trip advisor. Walk through a lane to a more spacious 2 storey coffee area. Place was really packed. Decided to just order the egg coffee to give it a try. Taste was unique... More

Everyone has been raving at the infamous Vietnamese Egg Coffee, so my friends and I decided to head to Giang Cafe to try it ! Giang Café is humbly hidden on a small lane at No. 39 Nguyen Huu Huan Street in the city’s old quarter. This cafe is well worth the visit and we were not disappointed! The cafe... More

While it wasn't too hard to find the entrance, walking through the dark, narrow hallway to the first floor counter left my family and me wondering if we were in the right place. However, two employees on the first floor directed us upstairs, where we found a nice mix of young and old, Vietnamese and foreigners, sitting on stools sipping... More

Oh how I miss those egg coffees…If you are a coffee fan and have never experienced cafes in Vietnam, I would recommend a stop at Café Giang. As the other reviews say, you will walk down a hallway to get there and that in itself is a cool experience – walking through a long hallway which opens up to some... More

Not difficult to find and definitely worth the hunt! Look for the cafe's signage on the wall at No. 39. You'll need to enter a dim and narrow hallway but it's only a short walk in. The interior is warmly lit with framed photos on the walls and there's upstairs seating. It was so quiet that I wasn't sure we'd... More

If you are a believer of coffee, you certainly know that Egg coffee of Vietnam is one of 17 worth types of coffee in the World. And Giang Coffee seems to be the representative of Vietnamese Egg Coffee. Giang Coffee is tastily rich by egg, and aromatic by coffee. The frothy glass of egg is decorated eye-catching as a cappuccino... More

Despite my skepticism, the egg coffee was absolutely delicious. And it was probably one of the most affordable coffees I found in Hanoi.
