Egg coffee is like tiramisu minus the lady fingers. It's so yummy and this place makes the best cup in Hanoi! The egg chocolate tastes like a whopper with zabaione on top. Wear mosquito repellant if you sit downstairs.

You go into a hallway and it looks like you're headed towards someone's house, but just keep going and you'll see customers and staff starting to materialize. It is a two-story venture, and we were immediately hustled upstairs. Almost all the chairs are tiny, which makes sitting down a wee bit difficult depending on your age or size or physical... More

At first I was skeptical about the idea of an egg coffee. I wondered what was so great about it and why it was still around. Now, I'm a huge fan of egg white cocktails so the fact that an egg is in my drink doesn't phase me. So in exploring and experiencing a new and different culture, I decided... More

Hidden cafe behind shophouses, felt like walking in someone's house. Nice settings open air on 2nd floor. We had egg coffee for the first time, taste was good but way too sweet for me, felt like they put load of condensed milk.

Was recommended by my friends, so I wanted to have a try. I really loved both smell and taste of the egg coffee here. Even though I went here in noon time of a regular day, it was still very crowded. It's a good place to try the egg coffee, just not the place you want to stay long for... More

Brought to this place on our street food tour. Delicious coffee with an egg cream topping. Had a hot coffee and then a second with rum! Mmmm. Highly recommend.

My Yogurt Coffee (Cà Phê Sữa Chua) & Egg Coffee (Cà Phê Trứng) were delightful. I wish they came in bigger portions but then again, 50,000 VND (2.30 USD) in total for this is affordable. I was so excited to drink them that I only took this photo halfway in. Muahahaha. My favourite was the egg coffee, because it was thick... More

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.
