Review of Banana Split Cafe

Banana Split Cafe
Ranked #90 of 863 Restaurants in Hoi An
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Vietnamese
Description: This is a basic looking cafe on the corner of Hoang Dieu right by the Cam Nam Bridge. It is a great corner to sit and sip a beer or have a Vietnamese coffee and watch the world go by. The market virtually starts from that corner so there is local life a-plenty to watch and enjoy. Prices are very rerasonable and tyhe snacks/food are very tasty.It's a place for a relaxing rest and a refreshing drink. THey have a travel agency servbice as well which I am told is very good - but we did not use it.

Aussie Family travelling with 6 yo and a 84yo great grandmother. We struggled to find a place to eat that meet everyone’s needs.
Banana Split got the thumbs up from us all!
We enjoyed sitting on street level and soaked up the atmosphere of HoiAn while enjoying a beer or 3 .
We absolutely loved the spring rolls and banana pancakes... so much so we went back the next day. Thuy and her family were so accommodating and let us use her toilet (western toilet)
A must visit!!!

A good little cafe for lunch,dinner or even a snack! They have great Pho and the best Banh Mi I've ever had. The staff are so friendly and easy to communicate with!

We found this place on our 2nd visit to Hoi An a few years back. On this 3rd trip we found ourselves specifically coming to this cafe almost daily. First, we love the old style way of serving the iced coffee or cafe sua da. They use the cup filters (phins) with a small layer of condensed milk - it's not already pre-mixed like a milkshake as so many places do now. This means you can stir to the desired strength.

Second it's situated in a busy little corner near the wet & cloth market where we do most of our shopping. We can spend ages watching the traffic and local people getting about their everyday lives. We often seemed to meet other nice tourists or expats that were interesting to talk to. Finally the lady who runs the cafe is really nice, happy to help with pricing or location and fun to chat with. The service is also really prompt. Miss this place now we are home.
