The main draw at this Australian-run spot is the convivial and bohemian atmosphere. Housed in a stunning 1920s colonial villa in a quiet part of the Old Quarter, the cafe has a rustic, warm vibe. While items from the simple menu can be hit or miss at other times of the day, the breakfast offerings are exemplary and the coffee is right on the money.
Best known as a breakfast and lunch spot, Hanoi Social Club lives up to its name by lending its convivial space to regular art and music events. A decent selection of craft beers and decent wines make these occasions go by with a bang.
Cool off in air conditioning or bask in the sun on one of the three floors of The Hanoi Social Club. The menu, more international than Vietnamese, offers lots of delicious options, including vegetarian and vegan.
