Why Dinh Cafe is special ?
Dinh is an exceptional hole-in-the wall cafes in Hanoi. Dinh cafe has a secret recipe for brewing and roasting coffee passed down from their late father, Mr.Giang, who used to work at the Metropole hotel as a bartender in the 1920s and later opened his own cafes.
Dinh Cafe is old to its core: a 30 square metre room blasting 80’s rock music and always filled with thick plumes of cigarette smoke that seem to linger on and seep into its walls. Egg coffee in Dinh shop is not contained in a bowl of hot water, it's contained in a tiny cup, just put in both palms. The cup of coffee for you still hot so you need to drink immediately to feel a little bitter of coffee and tastes of eggs in mouth.

Tips for you
This is where the local free thinkers are chatting, texting, smoking, gaming and reading news as the coffee drips timelessly through the filters. Magnificent institution open since 1984.
We came here as part of a small tour group. The cafe is hidden upstairs. Ignore the decor and the smoking - the egg coffee and other Vietnamese coffee (both iced and hot) were fantastic! The egg on top was so rich we were wondering where the coffee was in the drink. Awesome!
