We visited 3 places for egg coffee. To be brutally honest, this was the worst of 3. 1. The coffee was prepared in advance so was not freshly made to order. 2. The hot water that is supposed to keep the coffee warm was only...More

Ordered the egg coffee with Rum and I like the egg coffee with a bit of alcohol to boost the taste.As the coffee here put a lot of condensed milk and too sugary,the Rum just balanced the whole taste of it!

Came here to try the egg coffee on recommendation of some locals. It is easy to miss the entrance. It was worth the effort.

Read online this was the original place to go. Have to walk through an alley and it’s sitting on small chairs at the back but it’s decent egg coffee! Definitely a experience that should be had.

Famous for its egg coffee. You would like it if you like sweet stuff. They also serve all sorts of local Vietnamese coffee. Worth trying as you can’t find it elsewhere..

Don't mind the dark narrow alley and the dimly lit stairs. The egg coffee truly is out of this world. Well worth it but drink up quickly as people are likely waiting for your seat...

We have visited Vietnam three times this year and every time we came to Hanoi we have been to this cafe. Great little hidden gem, even though it’s very very busy! We had to loiter a little to snatch a table! Service is quick and...More

I do not drink coffee, so had an egg chocolate. Delicious! Rob had the egg coffee, the coffee was a bit strong for his liking but still enjoyable.

Giang Cafe was founded by My Father ,Mr. Nguyen Giang in 1946, when he was working as a bartender for the famous five-star Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi hotel. Although the cafe has been relocated twice, its egg coffee recipe is almost the same as in its early days, with its chief ingredients being chicken egg yolk, Vietnamese coffee powder, sweetened condensed milk, butter and cheese.
