5 Best Brunches in Hanoi, Vietnam

There are few things in life better than a really quality brunch! While you are traveling it’s totally understandable to want to distance yourself from the western world staples of avocado toasts and English breakfasts, but sometimes it’s just exactly what you fancy. Here are my picks for the best brunches in Hanoi, Vietnam!

Hanoi Social Club

Hanoi Social Club is one of my total favs in Hanoi! It’s gotten quite popular over the years, so it’s often times very busy. Expect it to be especially busy on weekends BUT do not let this deter you! The quirky decor, original art, and absolutely delicious food make this place one of the best brunch spots in Hanoi!

It is also a great social watering hole of sorts – hosting different talks and music nights! Check out their Facebook page for what is happening while you’re in town! Prices here start around 30K and go up to 200K (1-8 USD).

Go to meal: Ca Phe Sua Da and the Avocado Toast topped with ricotta and lemon or the Grilled Chicken Sandwich


3 Chi Em

Three Chi Em’s is a great Vietnamese brunch spot! Starting at 11 AM they have tons of fresh local dishes that you can choose to pile onto rice (Cơm Bình Dân).  If you don’t want rice that is no problem! They also do a variety of different Vietnamese dishes. A meal that looks something like this (photo below) will cost around 50K VND (2 USD)

Go to meal: Rice piled high with tofu, veggies, peanuts and a spring roll


Satori Slack and Savor

Satori is an airy escape from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi! It’s located on the second floor of an older Vietnamese building with large floor to ceiling windows that give you a view of the busy road below. Specializing in brunch there are a wide variety of fruit smoothies, eggs Benedict and other brunch favorites to choose from! Prices start around 50K and go up to 200K (2-8 USD).

Go to meal: a passionfruit/banana smoothie and the rain-bowl (fruit/yogurt bowl)

Lifted Coffee and Brunch

Located right in the heart of the Old Quarter Lifted has quickly become a total favorite for expats, locals, and travelers alike. Although slightly more expensive – prices range from 50K – 200K VND (2 – 8 USD), it offers western staples with a healthy, Aussie twist. Their granola and yogurt bowls along with specialty smoothies are delicious! They change their menu every month, see whats new on their Facebook page!

Go to meal: Any smoothie paired with the granola bowl orrr if it’s more of a lunch than a brunch, the Greek Pita is the winner!


Maison De Tet Decor

If you are looking for a slightly more upscale meal, Maison De Tet Decor should be your go to! Located in a beautifully renovated old French mansion, this brunch/coffee house is such a relaxing aesthetically pleasing place to dine in. Offering a wide variety of specialty coffee roasts, sandwiches, soups, salads and burgers it will be easy to choose something to satisfy your brunch cravings! Prices here range from 100K – 300K! (4 – 13 USD)

Go to meal: Anything and everything!
