We went there with our local guide and she said it was the best egg coffee, the original. I have not tried others but this one was really tasty. We ordered several types to try: egg coffee cold and hot, egg chocolate... in my opinion the best was the cold egg coffee.

I have tried other egg coffee in Hanoi and personally I think Giang cafe made the best egg coffee. The cafe is very local and you need to go through a small alley. You can also find an interesting drink menu in this cafe. I would recommend apart from egg coffee,try other as well.

Excellent cafe with simple menu of coffees taped to the wall. Egg coffee is famous here and definitely worth it, although there are other great drinks as well. My parents thought it was a trip sitting on the low bamboo chairs with all the other folks there. This was our second trip there and it has become a tradition.

I've had Vietnamese Egg Coffee before in San Diego and I wasn't a fan. This cafe was the first planned stop on our motorbike city and food tour we booked with Paloma Motorbike Tours (highly recommend!). Gabby told us the history of this cafe and how it's now run by its 3rd family generation. We sat in the smokey area... More

The infamous Egg Coffee store. Thick and flavorful. The foam tasting like the cream on a cake. Aromatic and delicious, even to a non coffee drinker like me.

The coffee didn't impress much, yes granted that it is special and the whisked egg is slightly sweet and fragrant; perhaps it was the overall experience I get that didn't satisfy. Naturally we went to the top floor, no view, and it was a smoking floor, not a preference for us. And we only realised that the lower floor (with... More

We had read all about Hanoi's egg coffee prior to our trip, so when our tour guide asked if we wanted to try it, we were very excited! This cafe is a bit tricky to find. You'll see the sign outside, then walk down a narrow corridor to enter. Not really able to grasp just what this coffee might taste... More

Our family of 5 with 2 young boys plus Grandma made multiple visits to Giang Cafe for their egg coffee. It was special and so unique. The children had egg chocolate which they enjoyed. Must try when in Hanoi.

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.
