Coffee culture - Hoi An's best coffee
Our rating
20 Nov 2017

Hoi An’s coffee scene is hotting up. You won’t have to look too far to find a good cup. Here are our specialty coffee picks around the old town and the surrounding area. These places serve international style coffee, but they mostly use Vietnam origin beans. Visit them all and you'll get a pretty good tour of Hoi An, the beach, and the surrounding countryside.

Espresso Station - Hoi An old town

Great coffee and the place is a charmer too. Trung the owner has renovated grandma’s traditional home and created what must be Hoi An’s cosiest cafe space.

Mia Coffee - Hoi An old town

These guys may well have been the first to bring specialty coffee to Hoi An and they continue to enjoy a loyal following of expats and travellers wanting to escape the busier streets of the old town. Great coffee and a basic menu of eats.

Dingo Deli - Cua Dai St, Hoi An

This is the only place we’ve listed that doesn’t serve Vietnam source coffee. These guys get their coffee from Lavazza - which of course is good. The cafe / deli food’s good too.

Cavalry Coffee Hoi An - near Cua Dai Bridge

This is the quirkiest and hardest to find in our selection. They do their own roasting and have started making their own roasters and espresso machines too - resourceful young guys. They’re located near the Cua Dai Bridge - which is worth an early morning or late afternoon visit. Great coffee and they’re also comfortable serving traditional Vietnamese phin drip coffee too. English might be hit and miss here - all part of the adventure.

Sound of Silence Coffee - An Bang Beach Hoi An

We’re told that Sounds of Silence sources their coffee from the lads at Cavalry. Whatever, it’s damned good. And this is one of the most picturesque places to grab a cup too - looking over An Bang Beach. Sounds of Silence is part of a guest house right on the beach.

Nguyen Phan Vinh, An Bang Beach, Hoi An - around 500 metres south of the main An Bang beach action.
