This coffee joint is easy to miss. It's found within a small alley, and what a hidden gem it is. The egg coffee is a must try and extremely potent- first, scoop and taste the top layer, before mixing the rest into the coffee. Was quite an experience, with both sweetness and bitterness, all in one drink.

The egg coffee wasn't how I expected it to be. It was creamy and the taste was unique. Remember don't judge the coffee by its cover!

The coffee at Giang was very delicious and aromatic. The taste was not too bitter nor too sweet but very distinct. Vietnamese drank coffee while eating sunflower seeds. We did follow them and that's a new experience for us.

We visited this cafe twice during our trip in Hanoi . Both trips we were very satisfied with the egg coffee . For coffee lovers , I would suggest going for the hot egg coffee as the coffee consistency is thicker and more flavourful . Price wise is 25000vnd per cup for their special egg coffee which is really reasonable... More

We visited this location because it was recommended by our hotel to try the egg coffee. It was good but nothing special. The place was pretty hipster and full of tourists.

We went there as recommended by a local Vietnamese girl to try something different. We mistakenly went into a neighbor egg coffee shop next to famous Giang coffee. We ordered our egg coffee, while we were waiting for our coffee, we realised we were in the wrong shop. We tried the egg coffee in the wrong shop anywhere. After that,... More

Ok. So we went here to get egg coffee since they're famous it. The place was very hipster I must say, their customers were a mix of locals and tourists. I'm not sure if it was language barrier or not, but the guy taking our orders was I think a bit rude. He was arguing with us the whole time.... More

If you're in Hanoi and wants to enjoy various taste of authentic Vietnamese coffee (especially egg coffee), this is one of the most recommended cafe.

Don't forget to try it when you are in Hanoi. Best egg coffee. We both tried the hot and cold egg coffee and both of them are great.

It took us a bit to find this place. Literally a hold in the wall ...well err a random narrow hallway in between two buildings to find this place. It was well worth the searching. Very busy and crowded due to the amazingness that is egg coffee. Creamy, sweet, and smooth, you'll have to try if for yourself to truly... More

Description
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.
