Good coffee, peace and quiet, books and occasional unplugged tunes, in a cosy Hanoi space.

As the name suggests, these guys serve coffee in a tranquil space. And it’s assumed that customers won’t disturb the tranquility. 

Grab a coffee and a light bite and perhaps do some reading or work. There are some interesting titles on the shelves - though most are in Vietnamese.

By night, the tranquility is sometimes interrupted with unplugged live music performances. We happened on a great show of Vietnamese traditional tunes performed without amplification on a Sunday night.

The coffee’s good too.

Rusty Compass recommendations are always independent. We list the places we think you should know about. That's it. We paid our way on our visits to Tranquil and no inducement was received for this listing.
