What to explore at Noi Coffee
The Noi (Connect) coffee is attractive to those who want to enjoy a taste of the good old days in Viet Nam thanks to its impressive space and vintage setting.
On entering the coffee shop, you will be impressed by the simple architectural retro style with mossy walls, old-fashioned window frames, and simple tables and chairs. In particular, the venue’s interior decor features hanging flower pots and lovely ornamental plants, which gives you a comfortable and close to nature feeling.
Interestingly, you may feel as if they were back to the old days inside a typical house in the city rather than a café. The venue is also so reminiscent of those from Viet Nam’s subsidy period between 1976 and 1986.
In a limited but hardly cramped space, the coffee shop is adorned with items of the past which are hardly seen in modern households. Included are radios, cassette recorders, loudspeakers, thermos flasks, black-and-white TVs, all of which are arranged in an extremely free style.
Noi is also recommended for people who want to see their childhood dishes, including peanut and coconut candy, and especially Miliket instant noodles the fallen king of Vietnamese noodles holding 90% of Viet Nam’s total market share in the 90’s.
The calming atmosphere helps to bring people closer together and make them put aside their smartphones to actually engage in real conversations with their friends.
The coffee shop offers a varied drinks menu. Included are cocktails, coffee and other irresistibly delicious drinks, along with dishes at reasonable prices.
Last, but not least, professional staff members here always show an enthusiastic attitude and friendly behaviour towards their customers.
