We popped in here to try the famous Hanoi egg coffee, and it didn't disappoint! We weren't sure what to expect but it was creamy and delicious. I enjoyed it and I'm not a fan of eggs, although I didn't quite manage to finish it because it is rich. The staff are nice, and you walk through an alleyway to... More

Cafe Giang, what a gem! This offers a quiet and rustic interior, small tables, and simple menu. I went with a group of high school students who were obsessed with coffee drinking, and later went back a few times with my boyfriend while he was visiting and the egg coffees were a total crowd pleaser for all both for their...

I'm not a big coffee drinker but I would encourage everyone to try egg coffee! Especially here! So delicious- almost tastes like a dessert. I would definitely recommend.

My hostel brought a group of us here to try the local egg coffee. While the name sounds off putting, the product is the complete opposite. The iced egg coffee is a must try. I went everyday after my first visit. It's hard to spot the cafe their entrance resembles a small alley way. Just look for the Giang sign.... More

Amazing egg coffee! What a way to end our first day in Hanoi. We didn't need to eat dessert after having our egg coffee since it's already a dessert in itself. We will try to egg matcha when we come back.

Our tour guide brought us here when we asked to try Vietnamese egg coffee, which I had never heard of before arriving in Hanoi. I don't like coffee, but the cold egg coffee tasted just like tiramisu, which is to say, delicious, but it was also quite sweet and very rich from all the egg, so I was unable to... More

I enjoyed a cup of good egg coffee first time ever with my friend. There are some egg coffee shops in the neighboring place, but this is the most full of people.

We were unsure reading about a coffee with egg, but we decided to give it a try. After that, we came back every day to get our daily egg-coffee! :) staff is also nice, limited english, but very sweet! The taste is very close to a liquid tiramisu, and Giang is actually the creator and owner of the original coffee-with-egg... More

A nice and calm place to enjoy an egg coffee, larger and nicer than it seems from outside and fairly quiet for Hanoi.

The egg coffee is to die for! Try it hot. The coffee is strong and flavourful. Mixed in with a thick, creamy egg custard like topping, this is an amazing dessert in a cup! We tried the egg with green beans too. Another interesting and weird combination, but it works!

Description
Giang Cafe was founded by My Father ,Mr. Nguyen Giang in 1946, when he was working as a bartender for the famous five-star Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi hotel. Although the cafe has been relocated twice, its egg coffee recipe is almost the same as in its early days, with its chief ingredients being chicken egg yolk, Vietnamese coffee powder, sweetened condensed milk, butter and cheese.
