Great to see Before and Now hasn't changed much since our last visit although the jokes on the toilet walls aren't as funny as they used to be and the interior used to be badly lit. Great place for a morning coffee because the newspaper vendors come to you - good range of cakes to have with your coffee and... More

We are regret to choose Before and Now as a place to hang out on our last day in Hoi An. Drinks were terrible, passion fruit juice was so sour and banana smoothie was tasteless. Anyways, even if the drinks sucked, we still would be content, however, manager and staffs here were so rude to us. We were asked to... More

We bought some very nice western style cakes from here. Unfortunately there was a power outage so we could not order coffee.

We visited here a few times on our trip to have a few drinks and play pool! This cafe is located in the ancient town and is quite easy to find. We didn't have any cake but they looked amazing! Staff are friendly too!

We didn't really know what to expect as we were wandering around the old town and stumbled upon before and now and had not read any reviews. We loved it. The menu is really extensive so there is something for everyone. The atmosphere is great, good waitresses and bar staff and we didn't have to wait long for our food... More

During our 5 days in Hoi An, I took my kids to this restaurant 5 times! The pool table, relaxed and friendly staff, reasonable prices and truly delicious food made it perfect for a late lunch when the heat of the sun makes walking around the old town far too grueling! I never felt rushed, the staff were genuinely chill... More
