Stopped here several times during our trip to Vietnam, as it always felt very welcoming, and the the coffee is excellent. My first experience with egg coffee was here, and I still think it was the best. The cheesecake, with its chocolate chip cookie crust...is also very yummy, and worth a try. But the real reason to come here is for the notes - every surface imaginable is covered in notes, the well wishes and hopes of the world, all concentrated within the walls of this multi-storied cafe. If that isn't a reason to stop by, then I don't know what is - you can spend hours here just reading the walls.More

Unlike any cafe I have ever visited. You can see why it's been said to be one of the most instagramable in the world! The charm here is very unqiue and you get a feel it connects travelers & people from all over the world....Had the coconut and egg coffee here, both where delicious. I didn't try any of the cakes in the counter much to instant regret!More

A lovely coffee shop that is covered in post it notes! The staff are very friendly and there are several levels to sit on each with lovely views of the lake. We ordered a coconut coffee and an egg coffee and both were delicious. On...the more expensive side for Hanoi prices but worth a visit nonetheless.More

Stopped here for a pit stop while exploring the street of Hanoi Old Quarter and enjoyed the cocont coffee as recommended in many reviews. The coffee was great and the staff extra friendly - so worth the climb up the narrow stairway to the post...it covered second floor where we enjoyed the atmosphere and duly filled out our post it's to add the the myriad of those already adorning every surface in the shop! Worth a visit - Try it! Thank you.More

Found this lovely little coffee shop in downtown Hanoi and had a great 1 hour rest stop during our afternoon walk around the city. The cafe was reasonably busy and after a very steep climb up to level 3 we were seated at our table....The view over Hanoi from Level 3 was worth the climb up the stairs. The staff were great and the Egg coffee was superb. As always we have a slice of cake to accompany the coffee and the variety of cakes and meals on their menu was fantastic. The only downside for me was the stairwell is quite steep and narrow, so one person at a time on the stairs. A great afternoon spent with coffee, cake and reading the thousands of post it notes stuck over the walls. Quirky and I would suggest a great place to relaxMore

On a strange Saturday morning when the waterfront was empty and many businesses closed or closed to foreigners (yes, there were signs) due to virus precautions, a friendly wave from across the street brought us here. One little gimmick and a friendly smile were all...we needed to have a fun break amidst the gloom and uncertainty of the day. We had fun reading and writing notes and taking lots of photos. I don't think the egg coffee was as tasty as I had at other cafes, but that depends on how you like it. Theirs is more coffee, less egg.More

I had my first egg coffee here, and it did not disappoint! My boyfriend had a coconut Frappuccino, and he was also very pleased with his order. The people working there are extremely kind and helpful, and the atmosphere of the place is very positive...and uplifting. It was fun to read all the sticky notes left by other patrons. Overall, a very enjoyable experience!More

I LOVED this cute quirky venue. Everything from the multi stories with narrow staircases to the mismatched furniture and of course all the sticky notes everywhere. It was a really fun place to visit and if you're into instagrammable photos this is definitely a spot...to go. The staff were so lovely and attentive and the whole reason we went there is the girl standing outside waved and smiled at us on the street even though we were waaaaaay across the road. She caught my attention with this so we instantly picked there for our coffee spot. Drinks were delicious and very reasonable. Super glad I dragged my boyfriend in there!! Would go again.More

While I was overjoyed about the Vietnamese obsession with coffee, I loved The Note Coffee for the experience that it was. Reading notes written by people from all over the world while sipping the almost dessert-y coconut coffee and occasionally looking over the busy Hoan...Kiem square, it was the perfect stop to unwind. Writing cutesy notes ourselves didn't hurt either. Friendly staff made the experience even better. Definitely wanna visit again, soon <3More
