Tracce, Cu Xa and Yupio Homemade Cafe are 3 coffee shops that are hidden in the old collective buildings. Although it’s not easy to access to these destinations, young travelers still have a crush on them.
The coffee houses in old buildings have been popular with people in Sai Gon over the past few years. However, you must spend time finding pretty and quiet ones in Hanoi. Of course, there is no shortage of coffee shops in Hanoi, but for the reason of the best building Café that are highly complimented by young people, I would recommend following three coffee shops.
Locating on the third floor of an old collective building, Tracce is elaborately and cleverly decorated that enables its guests to enjoy the quiet and cozy atmosphere. The different decoration of both floors provides guests with private space for the purpose of chatting, working and reading.
As you can feel, Tracce give you the coziness and simpleness. What mostly impresses its guests is the stunning balcony that is always full of sunlight. In a free afternoon, you should get there with your favorite book, then, order a cup of tea and leisurely engross into your book.
Furthermore, you can also go to Tracce coffee with your lover for the reason that it has enough private space for you to whisper to each other under the gentle lyrics of selected songs.
Trace has two floors. You are certainly impressed by red and black paintings of the second floor where you can watch Acoustic performances in the evening.
In spite of being situated in the building in which many families live, this pretty coffee shop still holds tarot card reading to satisfy the needs of its guests. Noticeably, the shop offers foods and drinks that are priced at 1,5 – 2$.

Situated in an old collective house on Ton That Tung Street, Cu Xa coffee house fascinates its guests by ancient significances that is different from that of Tracce. The coffee shop is decorated by old furniture and photos reminds us of our memorable childhood. In addition to drinks, it offers various kinds of junk food that used to be familiar with us when we were at primary or high school such as popcorn, sugared dry apricot and the “legendary” noodle of kids. How amazing!
It’s worth mentioning that the shop enables you to enjoy your free afternoon by pick up the pure and cool air of spring, leaning on the banisters to see “full-of-flower “bikes, or even, hearing the drums of school at the end of the school day and the peals of childish laughter of students.
