“Affordable tasty food”
Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

We were told to go here by our hotel. The service initially was very slow but it was before midday and I think they wernt in the swing of it just yet! We tried the White Rose. It was delicious and full of flavour, large portion too! We then tried the crispy pancake another traditional dish. It was superb so different to Poa and anything else we had tried. The portion was massive for only 50,000!! Between us we couldn't finish it! Don't let the minimalistic look put you off this is one of the best places to try good local food at good prices! Be patient and you won't be disappointed!!

“A nice surprise”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

The BoBo Cafe was a good surprise for my wife and myself when we found it at 18 Le Loi Street. It is situated behind a wall and is in the courtyard of a 150 year old family temple. The man who owns it and waits on the tables said he is the 9th generation of this family. The food was very good and the prices definitely affordable. Certainly worth a visit.

“Really not that good - not horrible but the food was bland”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Really not that good - not horrible but the food was bland. Overall, we've had so many much better meals in Vietnam.

“This is okay.”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

We were told to visit this little Cafe on the main street as the food was good. Here we tried the White Rose Hoi An Special, 'Shrimp Dumplings'. They were lovely, really nice and tasty. We also ordered noodles but the noodles were the same as everywhere else. The portions sizes were just right, and the price not too bad.
There was an old man serving us, and we were the only ones in the Cafe, so the service was average.
