The bar/restaurant is hidden in an alley but very large inside and outdoors. They have decorated the place nicely. Good place to take a break from energetic Hanoi, however service takes a long time. They serve coffee, tea, juices, cocktails, salads, some dishes and desert....More

Hidden café down a long dark entryway with seating options on many levels up very steep stairs. We chose a frothy coconut milk coffee and some English Breakfast tea, with a wonderful menu of other selections. Classic Vietnamese café scene.

Great place to pass the afternoon and drinking coffee specials (even coffee cocktails). Relaxed place for reading, writing or watching the street from above. Only disadvantage (in my eyes) : You'll meet just travelers, I guess but in May may street its no surprise ;-)

We found Nola’s Cafe searching for peace and quiet in Hanoi. It’s a wonderful city, but for us who aren’t used to the constant noise, traffic and chaos, it’s great to find a spot where you can get away from it all. Great cocktails and...More
