Coffee breaks are a must in chaotic Hanoi, and they are often matched with iconic views of Hanoi’s city attractions. A quick table-hop through Hanoi’s iconic cafes stitches together a vivid picture of a thriving café culture and dynamic capital that is more than 1,000 years old.
Why wait? Get your caffeine fix at Serein Café and catch a glimpse of the heavily bombed Long Bien Bridge, which has stood the test of time, La Place Café for a view of St. Joseph’s Cathedral, which stands triumphant against the surrounding modernization, Laika Café for a view of the bustling train track which is a hip hangout spot amongst young people and finally, The Eastern & Oriental Tea House and Coffee Parlour, for a dragon-fire sunset view over West Lake.
This Hanoi Cafes with a View Art Print series is an exclusive collaboration between Collective Memory and Hanoi-born graphic designer, Diem Quynh.
