“Best banana pancakes”
Review of Banana Split Cafe

Banana Split Cafe
Ranked #96 of 862 Restaurants in Hoi An
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Vietnamese
Description: This is a basic looking cafe on the corner of Hoang Dieu right by the Cam Nam Bridge. It is a great corner to sit and sip a beer or have a Vietnamese coffee and watch the world go by. The market virtually starts from that corner so there is local life a-plenty to watch and enjoy. Prices are very rerasonable and tyhe snacks/food are very tasty.It's a place for a relaxing rest and a refreshing drink. THey have a travel agency servbice as well which I am told is very good - but we did not use it.

This is a gem of a place to sit and watch the local traffic around the market. It has fantastic food and the banana pancakes are incredible. The beer is cold and cheap and Thuy is always helpful and friendly. Sit here and watch the world go by.

After a few trips to Vietnam it's easy to get a taste for the local coffee. The added condensed milk that seemed so off putting at first becomes addictive very quickly.

Banana Split cafe is right opposite the market. A great place to watch the world and a zillion motor-bikes go by while the coffee drips in front of you. The coffee is always great. Haven't tried the food but a chap next to me the other day had a Pho and he seemed to be enjoying it judging by the slurping that was going on ;)

We haven't had food here but definitely give the thumbs up for the coffee, there is possibly no better place in Hoi An to sit and watch the day go by. How do 2 cars get across the bridge at the same time, how many chickens get sold each day and what does go on in the little shop opposite? So many questions, so entertaining and so many near misses. The service is fabulous, just have a coffee and a rest and you might be able to answer my questions!

No matter if you want a fresh salad, traditional vietnamese food or just fruit shake, this is the place to go. Best food I have had in Vietnam to the price.

Almost every day of our 10 day visit we went to the Banana Split café for coffee and to recharge our batteries! It I located on a busy corner in the centre of the Old Town and it is a great place to sit and watch the hustle and bustle of the market while enjoying a wonderful cup of Vietnamese coffee. The service was friendly and fast. Will visit again next year!
