Quirky Hanoi at its best - hidden away down an alley with no signage. A fairly cool reception on arrival too. Great coffee.

Reng reng refers to the sound of a bell in Vietnamese - a bit like ring ring in English.

These guys do great coffee - and the locals flock to the place.

They seem to have decided their coffee cred is boosted by being pretty unwelcoming and not very comfortable. At least that was our experience on a wet, cold, winter day. Perhaps they're hoping to avoid a tourist invastion? The greeting on arrival was cool. Toilet wasn’t working either.

The coffee was sensational.

Don’t plan on spending a long time here. But it’s worth a stop if you take your coffee seriously. Perhaps our visit was a one off in respect of hospitality. We look forward to heading back soon.
