It took us a while before we found this cafe but once we've discovered it was just in front of the cathedral and 20 mins away from our hotel, we made it a point to come back.
It's a very cozy cafe, a place where you can actually lounge around all day- because of the cute, charming and laid back ambiance. Food is good and a bit high in price. (We were traveling on a budget, always eating at the sidewalks thus making our visit at Marilyn's a real treat.) What I really enjoyed at the cafe was their fried (crab/seafood?) spring rolls and their yogurt coffee. We made sure to come back knowing that they accepted credit cards and they had free wifi.
After a long walk around Hanoi, shopping and eating in their sidewalks, go to Marilyn's to kick back and relax.
