They do good things at this cafe and that's as good a reason as any to visit. However, the breakfast was just "OK" and that means a return visit is less likely than I'd hoped when I first went. It wasn't terrible. The service was...good but the English breakfast was just a bit "meh". Not the end of the world.More

Happy Heart Restaurant combines great food with friendly service. For those in need of an old fashioned hamburger- this is your place to satisfy your needs. And their chocolate ice cream shake was delicious.

I had to fortune of going to Happy Heart Cafe thanks to my daughter who lives locally in Da Nang. I had been hearing of this restaurant for two years and finally got to go once I arrived here for a visit. The experience was...everything I had imagined from the amazing food and the most loving a gracious owner, Thao. She has created a masterpiece of a friendly location with the best food! I chose to eat here numerous times during my stay and brought others who were equally impressed. Not only the food, but her commitment to hiring hearing impaired and her work around the community is so amazing. Thank you Thao for giving me a little burst of Western home cooking with true love baked in!More

great breakfast and bonus is the owner hires and trains deaf people for serving to bakery. the American breakfast was too much for me so they were fine with me ordering just some parts of it. waffle and fruit good for semi-light breakfast, didn't try...their homemade bagels. meet new friends here, some do charity work as semi-expats and can give advice about haircut, massage, you name it.More

My friend and I went to breakfast other this week and we had amazing breakfast. I had an incredible French Toast with some eggs on the side and wonderful bacon. My friend had a bacon, egg and potato breakfast burrito and loved it. Amazing food...by wonderful people that just happen to be deaf or handicapped.More

I don’t know how they do it. I love to cook. Pancakes are a particular point of pride for me. It took years of trial, error, internet research, experimentation and incremental improvement to produce pancakes that I felt were perfect. All of which was a...waste of time, because now I live four blocks from the Happy Heart Café. I’m 50 years old, I’ve travelled the world, I thought that I had pancakes nailed, I thought I was the man when it came to making pancakes. Until my fork passed through a Happy Heart pancake like it was passing through a cloud. Until that delectable, weightless, golden-brown rapture melted in my mouth. Not a whiff of hyperbole, the finest pancakes I have ever tasted. And I’m Canadian, pal. We know pancakes. And that’s just the pancakes. I don’t know where she finds that bacon, I’ve never found bacon that good anywhere in the nation of Vietnam, and I’ve been here 7 years, I’ve lived from Saigon to Hanoi, and the best bacon in the country is a 5 minute walk from me. Hashbrowns made by somebody who cares about hashbrowns, peppers and onions al dente, perfect. A chef who knows what “over easy” means, where did they find this guy? The best breakfast burritos I’ve ever eaten too, stuffed and savory and wrapped in impossibly tender, fresh tortillas, served with real-deal guacamole, salsa so fresh and perfect it’s like they picked the tomato off a plant in the kitchen and chopped it for me as I walked through the door. I don’t know what time these people get up in the morning to present food like this, but I guarantee it’s before a lot of An Thuong expats go to bed. Everything I’ve ever ordered at this place, from the Americano to the waffles, has been straight-up perfect. This is the finest breakfast in Vietnam, served by the friendliest, kindest staff in town. The woman who runs the place is an absolute angel, and my friends, she knows how to run a breakfast joint. I’ve never had better. If you’ve been missing top-quality Western breakfast, I’ve got good news for you, and that news is the Happy Heart Café. You need to experience this place. Trust. You’ll thank that random guy on the internet who raved about it. I promise.More

BEST RESTAURANT in Da Nang! For lunch or dinner, try the burger with a fresh baked bun with a slight sweetness and finish with the best thick apple pie you will ever eat. The taco salad (vegan/vegetarian) with fresh guacamole and salsa and homemade tortilla...chips and the creamy macaroni and cheese are also favorites. Blueberry smoothies go well with everything. For breakfast try the big cinnamon buns and if you like extra sweetness, they will add extra icing. My husband loves the fresh baked bagels and homemade sausage while my son devoured the western style breakfast. For vegetarians, try the yogurt parfait. And again…don’t forget the apple pie with ice cream! Everything is freshly baked at the restaurant. All served by the nicest people you will meet in Da Nang. The restaurant’s mission to train, employ and elevate those with physical challenges guarantees you will leave with a happy heart. Walk in as a customer but leave as a friend.More

We love this place. Staff and owners are so kind. Food is a treat as it’s all the Western comfort food we miss from the US. The baked goods are made on site. Bagels, apple pie with ice cream, and brownies are delicious. The yogurt...parfait is excellent with layers of fresh fruit. If you want a great cup of coffee - big and bold - this is the place. Awesome salads. Very special place. Very special people. Stop in and enjoy!More

Definitely the best place in Da Nang for western style breakfast. My partner and I had brunch there earlier on today after a friends recommendation and it exceeded all expectations. We both had breakfast bagels followed by waffles. The bagels were fantastic leaving us both...wanting more and the waffles were delicious making it very difficult for me to share (I apologise for my waffle photo as I already demolished some of the plate). We’ll definitely be going back here very soon as it looks like they also have a fabulous lunch and dinner menu. Thank you very much for great food and wonderful customer service.More
