Had to come to this cafe not just because of the great location but i was my Mum's name too! Beers were 30K VND each which considering the location and the lovely setting out on the balcony was pretty good

Right across the church, you enter a clothing store then go up the stairs to the top level. Great to have a beer on the balcony and people watch. The menu consist of currys to stir fry to vietnamese

Good location. We managed to get a spot on the balcony. Food was decent. Staff slightly pushy. Free wifi. Mainly western menu I felt.

We were welcomed in and partook of delicious Vietnamese coffee and cake. Lovely and cool and right on the walking tour near St Joseph's Cathedral. First stop of many in Hanoi.

We stopped for a drink and a quick bite, they have a nice terrace giving you some relief from the busy street life. Great spring rolls.
