1. Xoan Cafe
Located in a small alley behind a pedestrian tunnel in busy Nga Tu So, Xoan Cafe is very quiet. Xoan is one of the nostalgic cafes that opened early in Hanoi, with an old-fashioned house space and a small courtyard with beautiful tables and chairs.
The space in Xoan is open, quite airy, but there are very private corners overlooking the main hall. Wooden tables and chairs, old cement tiles, mossy yellow lime walls seem to bring you back to the old times, enjoying a strange but familiar atmosphere.

Cu Xa coffee chain is opened in old dormitories “small alleys, small streets, my house is there”. Taking advantage of the dormitories that have been built for a long time, plus the yellow wall decor, wrought iron railings, but the decades-old sofa sets make the old quality here very clear.
On major occasions, this shop also always changes the decor to help guests have many contexts to take virtual photos. In addition, Cu Xa also keeps a lot of “childhood scraps” such as children’s instant noodles, bubble candy, C candy, etc., which are suitable for organizing the Mid-Autumn Festival with the old-fashioned flavor.

3. Coffee House
Khoo Coffee is like a door of time that takes us back to the subsidy period, in the middle of a dusty De La Thanh street, coffee is located in an alley with mossy walls, a “scratched” iron staircase and antique objects. old.
“The Warehouse” does not use the yellow color commonly found in subsidized cafes, but prefers dark blue-gray tones, including a shady green space decorated like a relaxing balcony. Old-fashioned items such as black and white televisions, antique phones, Dien Co fans or even old window frames are the perfect backdrop to celebrate the traditional Mid-Autumn Festival!

4. Canteen 109
The Ca Phe canteen is small, located at the foot of the dormitory, not too quiet if there are many guests but allows us to enjoy the “gathering” pleasure of the Vietnamese. The shop still retains the old yellow wall of the dormitory area, with green moss growing together. The shop is small and pretty but still has large windows to catch the sun, clearly feeling an old atmosphere in the corner of a small alley in Hanoi.
The rusticity of the Canteen is also reflected in the beautiful rattan chairs, small wooden tables or the old-fashioned cement tile background. In general, although the space is not too large, it is the nostalgic layout that makes people feel close, cozy and closer to the old days.
