Came here as part of the street food tour and this was our favourite stop by far. The iced egg coffee is awesome, like nothing I've ever had.

We went to Hanoi in January 2014 and we were in a hotel nearby to this place. I had read in the travel guides that egg coffee was a must, although my husband wasn't convinced at all, so...off we went. This place isn't easy to find but not impossible either, just keep your eyes open. You'll have to go into... More

I would have given it 5 stars but the ambiance is poor. The taste of the egg coffee made up for it. It is indeed unique. It tasted like ice cream! It costs 20,000 vnd. The cafe is a bit hidden so you should have sharp eyes.

The egg coffee here is one of the best creations I have ever tried. I am a coffee lover and enjoy trying coffee's all over the world and this one was one of my favourites. I wouldn't be able to have this daily because it was so rich, but on a vacation or short trip yes I could manage.

Before leaving Australia we were told we had to try the egg coffee :) it is hidden in the back & upstairs off the street, so not easy to find! But hospitality was great and the egg coffee was worth it! Would highly recommend trying it!

If you visiting Hanoi, this is one of the coffee shop that you should go and try their coffee. Especially Coffee with Egg. Something interesting and it was taste good. We love it! We didn't try other coffee, so I can't comment more on that, but definitely the Coffee with Egg is a must to try!

Giang Cafe's location isn't so difficult - just go to the address and walk through a small walkway. You will see the friendly staff, and they'll direct you upstairs to the cafe - a no-frills room filled with short tables and little stools. Completely unpretentious & cozy. Of course, the Ca phe Trung (coffee egg) is the reason many come... More
