Three hide-out coffee bars for a pleasant autumn afternoon in Hanoi


It seems to be too easy to find a famous coffee spot in the capital of Vietnam, a big coffee drinking nation in Asia. However, as the need for this bitter beverage varies quite greatly as time goes by, a lot more cafeterias are open to meet the various demand of local customers. Below are three new open coffee bars in Hanoi where you may find a new breath of architecture and designation when your Vietnam private tour is over.


Trill Bistro in Hanoi


  • Address: 98 Hàng Buồm, Hoàn Kiếm, Hanoi.
  • Opening hours: 8:00 – 23:00
  • Average price: VND 40.000 – 150.000

Trill Bistro is a spacious cafeteria built on a 2000-square-meter land enclosed by full of greenery and a large garden. Trill Bistro changes the way people refer to Hanoi as an ancient and chilling city with its innovative designation.


Welcome to Trill Bistro

What you should expect to witness at Trill Bistro is a lodge-like concept which delivers a strong “Hoian Old Quarter” vibe. The whole building of Trill Bistro is a four-story house obtaining various different rooms inside, all of which are well bridged by the set of wholly-open corridors. This would be expected to welcome a lot more natural sunlight to the inner space of the mansion.


An absolute greenish

Let’s talk a little bit about the architectural schooling applied for Trill Bistro. Mediterranean style takes over the whole building in a harmonious way that takes local Hanoians out of their daily mindset when the first enter the coffee shop. What help you figure out such special decoration is brought from the gallery of patterned floor tiles and a big space set aside to take in sunlight brightening up the whole ambiance. Given such distinctive trend, Trill Bistro greatly differs itself from the rest of beverage lounges across Hanoi. Hence, we do recommend Trill Bistro to any of you loving a new way of decorating houses, so feel free to note it down as a must-visit spot during your private tours in Vietnam to Hanoi.


Even a bed?


  • Address: 2 Lê Thạch, Hoàn Kiếm, Hanoi
  • Opening hours: 08:00 – 23:00
  • Average price: VND 30.000 – 200.000

Move on with our next alternative, The Ylang – Gardenista has been taking on Hanoi by storm recently. Located at 2 Lê Thạch Street, right close by Lý Thái Tổ Monument within a few steps away from Hanoi Walking Street, this nature-inclined coffee shop easily reminds you of something full of greenery right at its given name. Apparently, The Ylang is indeed a minimal garden born in the heart of Hanoi’s tranquil downtown.


Mystic The Ylang

The YLang is divided into two main lounges. If the ground floor is built as an open space with a set of tiny flower pots and a fancy Koi fish lake, then its second floor is saved for those who are making a great escape from the regular hectic vibe and wallow themselves in a pure fresh atmosphere. If your Vietnam tailor-made private tours are all done, why not spare some time at The YLang to get back to your peaceful corner in mind?


A Koi fish lake


  • Address: 105D6, 4B Đặng Văn Ngữ, Đống Đa, Hanoi.
  • Opening hours: 09:00 – 21:00
  • Average price: VND 35.000 – 48.000

One last recommendation for our archive today comes from a hide-out gem sitting at the back of an alley and not on a street façade. Such hidden coffee shop in an ancient city like Hanoi will surely bring in a different look of your best Vietnam private tours in the capital. NOTH, this time, delivers a nice Japanese breath to Hanoian big coffee drinkers, where everything offered here comes in a little cute appearance, yet elegant and unique.

NOTH Garden

As built far away from the main streets of Hanoi, NOTH café is where you may always want to return whenever life is filled with stress and works. One thing special about NOTH Café itself is that even when every seat inside is taken, you still cannot catch a single noise from the customers besides. When setting foot on the space of NOTH, each guest is aware of a shared space and trying not to release a lousy act. Thanks to such awareness, the inner ambiance of the NOTH Café is still greatly saved for an utmost serenity.


A new décor trend

Regarding NOTH Café’s menu, the offer can be seen as little simple, with most of the drinks here are solely coffee. However, it turns out to be a positive side of the scenario when the shop itself utterly concentrates and go advanced on one single product. What you should get to try here include Noth coffee and Hanoi coffee. There is nothing better than hiding at the back of this lovely cafeteria watching Hanoi in the rains while enjoying a cup of hot coffee and reading a magazine.


The tiny flora pots

With our ultimate guideline above, now you have no worries about where to head to next after getting back to your lodge after a hard-moving Vietnam private tour in Hanoi.
