“Good Cause but Very Average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

While I support he cause, the food here, especially the cakes, are very disappointing and I would not recommend them. The ambience is also not great and it can smell quite smokey and unpleasant.

“stale cakes”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

so disappointing to go to Hoa Sua (again) and have such tasteless coffee and stale cakes. This is an NGO supported by the French - surely they can do better!

“Food needs improvement”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

We stopped in for afternoon tea. The staff were very hospitable and eager to please us. We had a nice place by the warm fire and the atmosphere was great. Unfortunately our pastries we ordered were not the best. There was something missing when translated to english. I got the mango eclair and my partner had the tiramisu. Neither tasted as they should. Great atmosphere, great staff, poor food.

“Nice place to unwind.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Ducked in here after reading a few reviews and a day of exploring Sapa, the layout is nice and the chairs by the fire made it a really nice and comfy setting.

We had the Mango Eclair and Tiramisu and tea and coffee, the cakes were ok and tea and coffee was nice not the best I've had but just to know what the company does for the community and children makes it all worth it.

Though what we had wasn't blow your mind good it was still good. The service and ambiance was flawless and I would recommend it to anyone as its just nice place to chill out and its all for a good cause :o)

“Eat well and enjoy the staff's warmth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

This is another little European oasis in Sapa. It feels like it is reaching back to the town's history as a French hill station. It is clean and well-staffed with a bunch of local kids who are funny warm enthusiastic and a treat. The cafe is run by the Hoa Sua charitty, and the standards are high. Decor is refreshing - lots of clean white, and I liked the raised portion of the restaurant where you take off your shoes to walk in to.
