This cafe in Hanoi will transport you to a hobbit home with magnificent city views, vibey photo spots and coffees from just S$2.70

by Marcus Leong

We are fortunate enough to have some very pretty and aesthetic cafes in Singapore. But somehow, the cafes overseas always hit different. Don’t get me wrong, I love chilling with a cup of coffee in hand at one of our local cafes, but the aesthetics, coupled with the insane view at overseas cafes will really get you in the right mood to relax. Just take a look at this cafe in Hanoi!

Right off the bat, Giao Mua in Hanoi, Vietnam looks like it’s straight out of the hobbit movie. The exterior of the cafe will have you hooked with all its odd curves and cream walls that add a touch of character to the otherwise gloomy street.

Step inside and you’ll feel like you have been transported to the Bag End — just like the ones seen in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. The little pops of colour also gives off a little of the Studio Ghibli vibes. If Studio Ghibli and Lord of the Rings ever decided to open a cafe together, I’d imagine it to look just like this one.

As you would expect in any Hobbit house, the inside is a little dim with lots of unique curves to separate the different spaces throughout the cafe. The interior is also adorned with lots of wood elements and dried flowers — yes it was an aesthetic choice. 


If the weather is forgiving enough, you can take a seat in the balcony seating area and admire the magnificent view that overlooks the city.

Otherwise, a seat by the window would bring about an equally magical experience. The sunlight bounces off the walls, creating a soft and warm lighting that makes for a chill and zen vibe. Make sure to strike a couple of dreamy poses here as it makes for a great photo spot.

Contrary to the elaborate interior design, the cafe menu is kept pretty minimal, serving mostly coffee-based drinks. But, if it’s any consolation, Vietnamese coffee is really robust, creamy, and yummy, so I’m not complaining.

There are  three ways you can enjoy your Vietnamese coffee here — black (S$2.70, VN50,000), with condensed milk (S$2.70, VN50,000) or as a white coffee (S$3.50, VN65,000). My personal go-to is the condensed milk version as it’s sweet, and creamy but still has the fragrance of the coffee. 

On the menu are the classic espresso based drinks like Long Black (S$2.97, VN55,000), Latte (S$3.50, VN65,000), Cappuccino (S$3.50, VN65,000) and more.
