Nice place. Cool environment. Very relaxing. Clean! Strangely quiet off the noisy street. Secluded. Service a tad slow. Don't be in a rush. Why would you be, you're in Hanoi!

I live in Hanoi and I was hesitate to write the good review about this place. Because the better review is, the more people will come to this place. It will then become a noisy, crowded tourist attraction. If you have a day off and want to find a quite place in the hustle Hanoi where you can read a... More

Nola Cafe is by far the best coffee shop I've ever seen. I've been to North America, Europe and Southeast Asia; I can guarantee that Nola Cafe offers best human experiences you can ever imagine for a coffee shop. Nola Cafe has 30 different table settings, and each table offers unique experiences - lighting, acoustic of the room, views, seats.... More

The Nola Café is like an oasis in the city. You step inside and you can climb several small stairs to several small terraces, with cozy, hidden corners to sit in. The terraces are full with green plants and there are creative decorations like colourful umbrellas hanging above the chairs. The food and the drinks were delicious. The only thing... More

This is a right hidden gem of Hanoi, slotted away through a tiny door off one of the City's busiest streets (Ma May). It feels perfectly secluded once you get inside, into what basically feels like someones house. The staff are all really informal and relaxed, the beer isn't the cheapest in Hanoi but you're still looking at a quid... More

Great little hidden & narrow path lead us to this amazing cafe. 3 floors of different rooms and on top a roof terrace? Doesn't get any better...friendly staff as well.

We had our breakfast in this lovely cafe, far from the noise of the street. The staff is very welcoming and nice and you have to taste their banana bread it's absolutely delicious! Great atmosphere.

Down a wee alley way with interesting lights hanging.... into cafe Nola. Lots of little nooks and cranies to sit. Menu had a good few choices at reasonable prices. The cafe is right in the heart of the old quarter but is really quiet and peaceful. Nice decor and friendly staff.
