A great escape from Hanoi’s intensity. Open villa space by West Lake. Great breakfast, coffee and all-day cafe-style dining. By night the menu switches to Vietnamese.

This may well be the best escape from Hanoi’s busy centre. Overlooking West Lake around 10 minutes from downtown by taxi, the space is homely and airy, the interior is classic Indochine, in a 1990s version of a colonial villa. There’s a courtyard and indoor areas over 3 floors

The cafe-style menu’s tasty - with plenty of options for the health conscious. They’re serious about their coffee too.

Not a bad spot for a social gathering or to rip through a few hours of work. There were plenty of laptops out during our visits.

Prices are on the high side for Hanoi and staff are variable - but this is a special place and the food's good.

We didn’t get to try the Vietnamese menu served in the evening. Look forward to checking it out next time though.

Owner, Australian Pete Wilkes, is a veteran of Vietnam’s hospitality scene and also has businesses in Sapa.

Le Maison de Tet Decor hosts a market day on the second Sunday of each month.
