This place was a delight! We were first introduced to it as we were wandering our way through the melting humidity of Hue looking for a place to cool down. We wandered in and took a look at the menu, 15,000vnd for a shake.. Very cheap compared to Hanoi where we had just been. Then a gentleman, noticing our surprise... More

We came here because of the good reviews but we're very disappointed. The food was bland and all tasted the same. It was also very greasy everything was fried.

Great taste of local food but with English menus on the edge of the tourist area. Cleaner than other local places and great value for money.

Visited hue and recommended this cafe by our hotel manager. Quick, friendly service. Pho (30k VND) was delicious and their pineapple (15K VND) and coconut juices were soooo good! Would definitely visit again. Locals eat here too!

We found this restaurant to be incredible value for money, so much so that we ate there three of the four days we stayed in Hue. The food is excellent, the service very good and the ambiance very nice.

Very laid back little cafe with a great group of people working there, everyone smiles and are attentive but not intrusive. The fruit juices are all made fresh, ice cold and the cheapest we have found. Food is good too, with a free banana at the end of service, you can't go wrong.
