Updated at Tuesday, 27 Jun 2017, 13:34
The Hanoitimes - There are plenty of ways to experience Hanoi – Vietnam capital, but enjoy a cup a coffee in the peaceful place maybe the most unique yet.
Hanoi Social Club

Hanoi Social Club is a little outpost of Melbourne's cafe scene in a stunning French colonial villa in downtown Hanoi. Great food and drinks. Some good live tunes too.
Hanoi Social Club has been a favourite since it opened back in 2011. It brings a unique menu of salads, sandwiches, wraps, pastas juices and other fresh flavours to a delightful 1920s French colonial villa. It may of lost some of its warmth as it's become more popular, but it remains an excellent Hanoi escape.
Owned by a local Hanoian, Nga and her Australian business partner, John, the food, the music and the vibe are inspired by Australia's cafe capital, Melbourne.

The decor is rustic and with original tiles, wooden furnishings and high ceilings. Indoors, Hanoi Social club is smoke free - a blessing in Hanoi. A basic, well priced wine list also makes it a great space to take some time out from the bustling city in the late afternoon or evening.
Hanoi Social Club has added live music to its list of attractions. On Tuesdays it features visiting musos at "The Tiny Music Club". Local acts perform on Thursdays.
Nola
Nola Café.
Nola Café.
Although Nola is right in the centre of the Old Quarter, it is surprisingly quiet. The labyrinth of houses and buildings surrounding it create rather successful sound-proofing, and the café even has a selection of art which can be enjoyed silently.
The seating, for the most part, is extremely comfortable and it is easy to spend an entire evening here either by yourself with book or with some friends for some quiet conversation. Drinks are good, too.

Nola is definitely a place for a wander before choosing where to settle- remember to include the rooftop terrace and the tiny front-facing loft in your journey of discovery.
Manzi

Manzi is a brilliantly peaceful haven tucked down a quiet street off Quan Thanh. Furnished with several good tables and chairs, this bright and spacious cafe cum gallery also offers a deal for freelancers where you pay one price for unlimited coffee and tea throughout the day.

Housed in an elegant turn of the 20th century French villa with a shady yard in a quiet lane near the Water Tower, it’s your perfect living room to spend your day reading or working on your laptop among paintings and art installations of well-known and emerging Vietnamese visual artists.

The art shop offers little art works of top Vietnamese artists at affordable prices. Run by local cultural activists, Manzi is one of Hanoi’s coolest watering holes infused with a heavy dose of art.

Cong Café is a popular coffee chain that’s taken Hanoi by storm with its rustic, military chic decor. The capital is now packed with franchises and several of them are good spots to stop by for a break and some people watching during yours days of exploring.

The cafes are decorated with communist posters and American-Vietnam War era trinkets, and serve different styles of Vietnamese coffee. My favourite branch is on Nguyen Huu Huan in the Old Quarter, which has a corner balcony upstairs overlooking the crazy streets of Hanoi.
If you don’t drink coffee but Cong Café has coffee gets mixed reviews. There are plenty of other drinks on the menu though - juices, tea and more. They’re not a bad spot for a beer at the end of a day of travel as well.
