“Came for the Ice Cream, Local Photography and WOW!!!.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

I was referred by a Local Californian expat business owner to check out the Ice Cream and Photo Gallery as My Friend said the Photographer does a lot of good things for the Local people and has amazing work and Super Yummy Ice Cream. He was Not kidding. Awesome Ice Cream....TONS of it !! Many Flavors....Salted Caramel my Favorite !! Excellent Coffee and a Full Menu of Super tasty food. All this with superb friendly staff and a Great Riverside Location with great views and an even better upstairs terrace.
He has a Very Nice Photography exhibit studio in the back with many of his framed Photos to enjoy and purchase too.
I can not say enough good things about my handful of recent visits.....but I think my Belly is getting bigger....There are other places to eat and have Ice Cream in Hoi AN but this is my new favorite hangout for many reasons.....Friendly staff....excellent Ice cream, Food and Coffee Plus a Wonderful Location on the river. All i need in one place. Check them out. ;)

“Disappointing and overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

My partner and I went here after seeing it on TripAdvisor. Based on the reviews, our expectations were high, but sadly not met.After walking in, one of the staff/owners (a Westerner) explained the concept....you grab a tub and serve yourself as much of whatever you want from the large selection of ice creams and toppings. ...at the end you pay by weight. Sounds good? We thought so......until we got to the cash register.The price was 60,000 Vietnamese Dong (US$3 or £2) per 100 grams which according to their own signs, is about 2 scoops of icecream (we found that 100 grams is equivalent to 2 golf ball sized scoops)....and that's without toppings!! While this may not sound excessive by Western standards, it is unaffordable for the Vietnamese (average wage less than US$200 per month) and for the same price in Hoi An, you can buy 3 cornettos (equally as good) from the mini mart or a round of export beers in most of the neighbouring restaurants. As for taste, it didnt live up to their claims.....its not bad but some had a powdery texture and lacked flavour.
In summary, with the benefit of hindsight we would have given it a miss, in favour of one of the restaurants owned by local Vietnamese families....most are good and serve half decent ice cream too!

Dear customer,

I've just posted some photos taken tonight and the day before. We had more than 50 Vietnamese eating ice cream. I posted these photos to prove you how wrong is your judgment about our prices. On the photo you will see the terrace full of Vietnamese.
I also noticed that you stayed in expensive hotel and made clothes at one of the most expensive tailors in Hoi An. Sorry but I can not take your review seriously...

Note that the price are written every where and at any moment you can check the price before fill your cup!

Regards

R.

“Best coffee in Nam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

My wife Jan & I were desperate of a real coffee, cycled across the bridge and found Enjoy, made friends with Rehahn and his beautiful wife. The staff are all very friendly & love a chat which is nice
I got on well with Rehahn due to our love of photograph he has produced an excellent book of portraits. I purchased his book for my coffee table at home on the Sunshine Coast Oz.
Do yourself a favor & visit Enjoy

“Nice chocolate fondant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

This was a nice place to have dessert and a few drinks after dinner. The photo gallery attached to the cafe is fantastic and the photographer/ owner behind the scenes is a very genuine guy. Was a pleasure to meet him and have a few mojitos. Not the cheapest place in Hoi An, but you get what you pay for. The quality is there.

“PHOTO MAGIC PLACE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

You can sit at this cafe - 'ENJOY' the best coffee in town and then also 'ENJOY' and appreciate the AMAZING photos taken from all over Vietnam by the owner Rehahn Photography. Who will chat with you along with his wife and staff, particularly Khanh. Best pancake with salted caramel ice-cream and beautifully displayed. We spent afternoon tea, dinner and morning tea here. Whilst looking out at the uniqueness of Hoi-An with it's yellow buildings and red roofs. Love the white furniture and the colourful lanterns. A not to miss location when visiting Hoi-An.
