Excellent waffles for a bargain price. The cafe itself is very cute. My boyfriend and I both ordered waffles with bananas and chocolate sauce and it was very filling and tasted great! Coffee was standard but good. Customer service was excellent.

Great wee place which looks like it's family run. Vietnamese coffee is rather splendid, I definitely recommend.

This is a lovely café in a great location. An ideal spot to sip on a tasty coffee and watch the hustle and bustle of Hanoi. I would highly recommend the waffles with whipped cream and blueberry jam!
