Hoi An is a quirky city that is said to give people kind of quirky feelings. Why does this ancient small city, with very little new amusement or fun things, make youths get to miss it so much? And finally decide to return to find something else that urges them to get started while they have for a few months left, though!
It is Hoi An’s food! It is the small tranquil alleys surrounded by ancient unique houses! It is the serene Hoai river that the other day you were on a boat and let the flow itself take you slowly! It is the charm of a whole Hoi An picture that is painted with peace within its soul! And it is special because Hoi An is a city of cafes that make you never want to leave!
The famous cafes of Hoi An, with great reputation, are Hai, Before & Now, Triet, or Reaching out. Recently there have been 6 impressive new coffee shops that would be so weird to please your desire for chilling out in cafes and feeling the real peace of the life here:
Cocobana, one of the newest and hottest in the map of shops in Hoi An, is recommended a tranquil paradise to get lost in Hoi An. A relaxing oasis, super stylish tea, and arty souvenir boutique are not enough to describe Cocobana.
This is not a tea house or a coffee shop, this is a surprising house. The owner has outstanding style and has crafted together a gorgeous mix of old house, tea shop, local crafts and artifacts and historic pieces to make a really stunning boutique.
You will be more than amazed at all the decoration and stuff displaced as well as the peaceful environment.
This place is a blend of teahouse, museum, and a papermaking craftsmen workshop.
They have wonderful tea drinks, especially farmer’s tea. Perfect for yourself to refresh your soul and your body after long-day travel or in the hot weather this time in Vietnam!
The owner and the staff will make sure that you are comfortable and share you a lot about the town, houses before supplying you with books about Vietnam to enjoy with your tea in the sunshine.
It also offers many kinds of special traditional stuff for sale.
They have a fun koi pond with stepping stones, a coloring room, and lots of little sitting areas tucked away in comfy spots. You feel like you are in your home, just relaxing in the afternoon.
You will be shown around the upstairs of the house – 200 years old – and the bamboo art before placing a bamboo leaf on the visitor tree. This experience will be treasured.
You could never know how amazing this place can offer to your soul until the end of the trip.

Everything is fantastic and fabulous. All the plates are beautiful.

6. The Chef
The Chef is a set of stairs in the middle of a bookshop. Up two flights of stairs ( the second is a little steep) and you will be on the roof . As evening falls the lighting comes into its own and creates a great atmosphere.
The view is of the town’s rooftops and at night it is charming with lovely lanterns. And this view from the rooftop gives you a nice dinner setting as well.
The Chef has fantastic cocktails and a huge selection of food, pancakes, beef salad, spring rolls, eggplant, and many others that are highly recommended by tourists who came here.
It is a great spot away from the crowds and occasionally pushy street vendors which can be an annoyance when sitting outside at street level.
