Cafe Nola is a well hidden sanctuary of calm at the centre of the tourist area in Hanoi's old quarter.

Hanoi's old quarter seems to get busier by the day if not the hour. And a lot of the madness is concentrated in the tourist area around Ma May and Ta Hien Sts.

There are plenty of tourist restaurants and cafes in the area too but we've not found one as thoroughly removed from the chaos as Cafe Nola. In fact Cafe Nola's so well hidden down an alley that you'll only find it if you looking for it.

Head up for a snack, a coffee or a cold drink and settle in for a bit of mellow time. Bring a book.

Cafe Nola's open and airy with an original old quarter courtyard. It's set across multiple rooms with indoor and outdoor seating and has an open rooftop.

The decor is in the Hanoi retro style that's taken hold in cafes across the city. The vibe is friendly and relaxed but service on the slow side.
