A great space in a stunning colonial era villa. The courtyard's a good place to chill-out by day. There's also a restaurant and cooking school.

Hai Cafe has been open since Hoi An’s first wave of travellers hit back in the 1990s. The menu covers both local and international dishes. This is a classic traveller retreat.

The Chinese-style, colonial era villa is spectacular, and the garden courtyard is a great place to chill. You can also sit out front and watch Hoi An pass by.

Hai Cafe offers popular daily cooking classes and is owned by the people behind Red Bridge Cooking School.

Quite a bit of the Hoi An material for this website was created in the Hai Cafe garden, fueled by a tasty fruit salad of mango, pineapple, banana and yoghurt.
