Located across the street from the more established Red Bean Restaurant, the entrance to Nola Cafe does not stand out and can easily be missed. Walk inside the entrance, down an old messy hallway and you will be ready to turn around and go back...More

This cafe is hard to find, look for the small side and go down the alley way to find. Large cafe, with many places to sit - great selection of food. Perfect place to sit and unwind after a busy day walking in Hanoi.

Came up here for a drink on a Saturday evening and it was nice and quiet - perfect to escape the busy hanoi streets. Decorations are cute and quirky lots of plants and service was good.

We sheltered here in a storm and benefited from comfy sofas, friendly relaxed staff and great cocktails. The setting, an old house around a central courtyard, is wonderful with different rooms to discover and an umbrella canopy over the roof terrace.

Beautifully quaint decor and the rooftop overlooks the surrounding houses, giving the place a really authentic feeling. Soothing instrumental music completed the chill vibe of the place. Food was fantastic as well, and...More

You'd be forgiven for missing this hidden gem. Tucked away in the Old Quarter down a narrow walkway, Nola Cafe opens up into an atmospheric building with multiple rooms and floors, all unique with their little charms. The cocktails aren't the cheapest drinks, but well...More
