“Sat at La Terrasse for lunch and had the incredible Rossini Burger and a nice Pinot Noir. Followed it up with some coffee and desert while reading a good book. Great location, service and food. A luxurious way to slow things down and take in Hanoi.”
“Staying at the Sofitel Metropole Legend for the start to our 2nd holiday in Vietnam, La Terrasse had us return daily and sometimes several times a day for our coffee’s and breakfast, people watching and the comfort of being somewhere you were sure to see a friendly face. Impeccable food, service and staff, we would return here daily even if we weren’t hotel guests.”
“A parisian coffee shop flown into Hanoi. My friends were staying at the metropole and we had our morning coffee here every morning before heading out to tour the city. Gracious service, perfect coffee.”
“My boyfriend & I decided to spend an afternoon at this cafe when we were in Hanoi, having decided we were choosing a hotel in the Old Quarter instead. It was a leisurely and lovely afternoon sitting at the terrace with our coffees. The traditional drip coffee was really good. So was the cappucino. The drinks came with little delicious dark chocolate & pastries. A sweet touch was the fans the staff gave us to fan ourselves in the afternoon humidity! An enjoyable quiet & charming afternoon; you could almost pretend you were at a Parisian cafe, minus the tropical heat, watching the world go by.”
