A little hard to find, but a place I'd recommend everyone. Especially the egg coffee and egg chocolate is delicious. Atmosphere is super nice and staff is friendly.

Well, this is a really different place for an old fat guy like me, but hey, let's go for it! Through a wee enclosed alley, up through a couple of levels (through a gazillion Vietnamese!) to find a very wee and very low seat, to have egg coffee. The setting reminds me of French artists area type of down to... More

Went on the recommendation of a local and was worth the trip. The egg coffee was creamy and smooth- if you imagine it's simply an egg cracked into a coffee you're wrong. It's more like a whipped meringue, no raw egg taste, and offsets any bitterness in the coffee. Absolutely delicious!

The interior is charming and rustic. Nice place to chill out over a cuppa. The Egg Coffee and Egg Matcha are the must tries.

It's not that easy to find, and then you walk down a long dark hallway and up a flight of stairs to get to a very simple coffee shop. Egg coffee sounds strange, but it's delicious. We liked the hot better than the iced, particularly since it comes with a saucer of hot water to keep it warm. Tastes like... More

We visited Giang's Cafe expressly to have the egg coffee! It is a unique Vietnamese drink prepared with egg yolks, sugar, condensed milk and Robusta coffee. The first cup of egg coffee was made in early 20th century by Mr, Giang a former bartender at the Metropole hotel. It was amazing!!!

I went here for egg coffee as often as possible. Though pretty difficult to find, it is worth it! The upstairs has a vintage feel to it, with plants, low stools, and natural light. I love the ambiance. I could drink 50 egg coffees but I would die, so I had to settle for only one a day. Please go... More

Description
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.
