This small was quite tricky to be found but all the lost in city was worth for this amazing cup of egg coffee. Egg coffee? Yes, you read it right. The coffee is mixed fluffy beaten egg yolk and the taste was amazingly good with...no sense of egg smell.More

This busy café is a must to visit while walking through Hanoi. A bit hidden but worth the search. The egg coffee here is just as good, but a fraction of the price to many other higher-end places nearby. Also had a hot chocolate option...for my 9-year-old son. Note, very low & uncomfortable tables & chairs for a big guy like me, but that's part of the experience.More

While i'm not really a fan of egg coffee, I had to check out this place as it's the originator of this iconic Hanoi coffee. Loved the space with its traditional low tables/chairs and especially for the greenery creeping down the walls.

The egg coffee here is still sublime. Consistently delivering the best caphe trung in the whole country. To give my arteries a break, I tried the trung cacao - oh my word ... a revelation... egg cream with a dollop of cocoa powder ... heaven...in a glass ... served hot or cold ... and all options are at irresistible prices too ... divineMore

it was our first time experience trying egg creamy coffee. Our local guide recommended this coffee shop. And we did enjoyed it very much. The way they made the coffee was amazing and very impressive. We prefer hot coffee for more jummy drink. This is...really a good desert.More

Lots of egg related drinks are on offer here, unfortunately I don't think its for me but my boyfriend said it was okay and I've heard lots of people love it, nevertheless this didn't change our experience as you can't really retract anything from a...review based on personal taste! It's very hard to find but very cute when you do find it and enter. Probably somewhere you should go to try out the "iconic" egg coffee. Service was great until we got down the bottom till to pay then the staff were a little grumpyMore

Wow, love egg coffee, cinnamon egg, chocolate egg. This place is amazing, had several visits. Didn't try anywhere else in Vietnam in case I was disappointed. If in Hanoi, a visit to this place is a must do. Great atmosphere

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