“A nice surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

The BoBo Cafe was a good surprise for my wife and myself when we found it at 18 Le Loi Street. It is situated behind a wall and is in the courtyard of a 150 year old family temple. The man who owns it and waits on the tables said he is the 9th generation of this family. The food was very good and the prices definitely affordable. Certainly worth a visit.

“Really not that good - not horrible but the food was bland”

Really not that good - not horrible but the food was bland. Overall, we've had so many much better meals in Vietnam.

“This is okay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We were told to visit this little Cafe on the main street as the food was good. Here we tried the White Rose Hoi An Special, 'Shrimp Dumplings'. They were lovely, really nice and tasty. We also ordered noodles but the noodles were the same as everywhere else. The portions sizes were just right, and the price not too bad.
There was an old man serving us, and we were the only ones in the Cafe, so the service was average.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

This is a lovely cafe/restaurant. The Lonely Planet Vietnam book merely mentions this place rather than waxing lyrical about it. It should definitely wax lyrical about this cafe! I had the best White Lotus in Hoi An here – the roses were swimming in sauce and were very light and fluffy – absolutely divine. The Cau Lau was also really tasty. The service was excellent and the lady serving us spoke very good English. This cafe has an outdoor courtyard as well as some tables out front looking onto the street which are shaded. This was perfect for some late afternoon people watching.
