Surely everyone knows that Hanoi is a crowded and busy place with many skyscrapers. However, besides that, there are also small, quiet, peaceful, and authentic Hanoian-style spaces that many people love. Here are 4 nostalgic coffee shops for those who love the classical version of Hanoi.

Dinh Cafe

This coffee shop is located right on Dinh Tien Hoang street, near Hoan Kiem lake, which opened in the early 1990s until now. This cafe is always crowded, especially in the autumn and winter.

It is known that at first, this cafe used to be called Bich, named after the female owner, but gradually people called it Dinh and the shop changed its name to that. In particular, the cafe became the focus of attention when John Legend stopped by at the beginning of 2022.
