Interesting to find French cafe in the middle of Old Quarter. Great selection of main meals with international range of cuisines. Food finely prepared, chicken and mushroom was light and creamy. Steak was requested medium/well done, came medium rare, but that was how it seemed to be across Vietnam. But sauce and sides were delicious. Dessert and wine at good... More

Overpriced for average food, had caramel pork and rice should read pork fat and rice in an incredibly small bowl. Walked past the last 4 days and don't think the cakes (which look tempting) have changed. Came here on our first night in Hanoi and will put our visit down to tiredness. The worst place we have been to in... More

At the end of a three week trip in Vietnam our group of four veterans were in the mood for clean, well prepared food served in a clean and bright atmosphere. The Loft Stop delivered on these points and we came back here several times to enjoy the food and cheerful atmosphere. Many expats and locals also enjoy this cafe.

I ate a few meals here and had coffee. It is a cafe that also sells ice cream and patisserie (worth a try). A true find among the local food in the Old Quarter.

Food was poorly spiced, more like food from middle school kitchen or gas station. Tastless, unapproachable textures...western guy running the place but looks like he haven't try his own meals for a while. Had to spice foods more by myself to them to be eatable. Surrounding and music okay, but not worth of to try foods. Lime juice tasted like... More

We ate burger, vegetarian risotto, pizza, garlic bread and mushroom soup. Beer was warm and food was similar to gas station food. Tasteless, unimaginative, overpriced = don't go if you have any respect for food. 1/5

Very good value and a nice change from the traditional Vietnamese fare. Spotlessly clean and good coffee. Well worth a stop for a pastry, snack or something a little more substantial.

A Cool place from the heat of the day. Great service lovely food, we had a BLT and a Club sandwich with orange juice, on leaving we just had to get a pastry from the patisserie. All very French and very familiar from our many times in France.

I decided to skip the Starbucks and try a typical Vietnamese coffee drink. I'm not big on iced coffee, nor sugar, but the woman behind the bar convinced me that I would like it Vietnamese style with condensed milk. They also have a good-sized menu for snacks and lunch.

We came in kind of late and think that may be the reason for the food quality. Server was nice/polite and quick. However the food was just so so. My chicken cordon bleu was over cooked. The ham tasted old, but the sauce was good. The margarita pizza was ok, but very bland. Needed some salt and more spice. I... More
