Easy-going staff, well-ventilated rooms, reasonably priced drinks that taste distinctive. But I've tried Egg Coffee at Neo Cafe already. So I think the egg cafe there is better.

Reputedly the home of the egg coffee creation. Coming about due to shortage of milk. It is an acquired taste but everyone coming to Vietnam needs to try it at least once. Won't say what it tastes like because that is part of the experience,...only to say it was a unique coffee !More

This cafe lives up to its name of kopi gian (read in hokkien dialect). A place thaf you will crave not only for its egg coffee but also egg mung bean which is my favorite

Great egg coffee. Warm meringue on top of hot Vietnamese coffee. Small shop established in 1940’s. Very traditional, though coffee is very expensive for locals, so it’s more tourists and wealthy Vietnamese.

There are different variations of how to make coffee in the world. For example the Italian brought about Cappuccino and now it’s one of the features that represents Italy. Same thing is here in Vietnam. Vietnam’s famous for Pho or Banh My and now Egg...coffee is gradually becoming a factor contributing to representing Vietnam. And egg coffee in Giang cafe is the one that does the job. A bit touristic but just because it’s too famous doesn’t mean it’s not good.More

I can make egg coffee myself which is really nice. But when it comes to having egg coffee in Hanoi, this is the place you wanna pay a visit. Owners seem friendly. What I’m not quite fond of is it’s got a bit touristic which...annoys me a bit. Other than that everything’s alright.More

I'm not a lover of coffee but had heard the egg coffee is sweet. So as I was in Hanoi and its a speciality in Vietnam, it had to be tried. I went for an iced egg coffee and I wasn't disappointed, it was delicious...but be sure to try the 'egg' part separately it tastes very different when all.mixed up. The egg froth was yum! The menu had all kinds of variations including egg beer so definitely one to try. It was very busy and we only just managed to get a table upstairs with lots of people coming and going, definitely not to be missed!More

Kind of had to be done while in Hanoi, and it is the home of egg coffee after all. We went in on a sat evening and no surprise it was very busy! They tried to get us to sit downstairs by the kitchen which...really looked depressing which no atmosphere so we insisted on going upstairs and trying out luck to find a table which we easily managed. The menu is very reasonable and a good variety of egg coffee, I enjoyed a hot oreo egg coffee which was tasty. I would however sat that the place was a little underwhelming based off its history but the egg coffee was good which I guess is all that matteredMore

This is the creator of the first egg coffee, but I don’t feel it lives up to its reputation. Giang Cafe’s egg coffee was bland and the cream was fishy. Overall it was not as good as the rumors, I like the egg coffee in...NeoCafe nearby more.More

The Hanoi home of egg coffee. This isn't as bad as it sounds, the egg is a sweet meringue-likr topping, so it's not a case of just cracking an egg into a coffee. Service is prompt and friendly, and the coffee is delicious.

Egg Coffee at Giang Cafe? Yes please! Giang Coffee is situated in the Old Quarter just behind La Siesta Hotel Hang Be. This was the very first place I headed for due to its history and also its unique concoction. I tried both the hot...and iced coffee and it was delicious! The inventor was working for the metropole and starting making Egg Coffee due to the price of milk in the early years. He happened on this whipped egg concoction that is now one of the most iconic coffees in Hanoi. This is one of those places you must try if you are ever in Hanoi.More

I saw no "to go" service or cups. You sit and sip. Hey, you are in Hanoi. Sit, sip and relax a bit. 😁
