“Breakfast on the terrace. Eggs accompanied by bacon.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

We went here without planning on a hot Sunday morning a few weekends back. Greeted at the door by the friendly staff. We climbed up the narrow stairs to the open terrace at the top of the stairs. The music was quiet enough to not awaken our hangovers and the waiter was neither too pushy or distant. I had eggs (sunny side up) with bacon and fresh orange juice my girlfriend ate eggs friend on both sides and a coffee.

The food came promptly it went down easy and then we relaxed to the sound of the cathedral opposite.

All in a morning work.

Highly recommended.

“Do you go both ways?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

Tried it for breakfast and lunch (and western and asian food) and both times was satisfied. Good service, good savory food. A cozy spot, on the right side of St. John's Cathedral. Easy to find and worth the walk.

“Great place to chill out and decent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

Great place to chill out from the madness of Hanoi and decent food. Set on a nice square with a roof terrace and indoor upstairs seating in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere. Papaya salad was lovely, the Pho soup was pretty nice although I suspect there is better in Vietnam (we don't really know yet as we have just arrived). Recommended and friendly staff. Free wifi too

“a little place for good food and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

We went to this little place near to the hotel we stayed as we were searching for a place for breakfast. we ordered breakfast set and it was brilliant! i love their home made hash brown. Coffee is average here but to enjoy food along with a great view of the church is great, and the staffs are all friendly. Before i depart Hanoi, we came back for another breakfast here. I will come back if i happen to visit to Hanoi again.

“Budget restaurant with great cheap food but....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

We've the 4 star rating for the food and service which can't be faulted. However, as we say above it's a budget place and if you're put off by dirty toilets and amenities you may struggle here. It's a great shame that someone isn't prepared to splash around some domestos and put in some hard scrubbing. It's all "La Place" needs.
