“Great for breakfast!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We had breakfast and coffee here every day, as this is the only place that looks clean, serves good coffee and has a great choice of breakfast dishes. We just wish there were more places like this in Halong Bay.

“free wi-fi cafe and Junk trip agent”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Whilst on a cruise from Singapore to Hong Kong, our ship stayed in Halong bay for 2 days. My partner and I found this cafe as it was the drop off and pick up point for our shuttle bus. It is next to a market for those who like bartering for bargains. The cafe itself has free wi fi so ideal for us to keep in touch with family and friends. It was very clean and modern, nice place for a coffee and a bite to eat. Whilst we were in there we noticed they did a luxury cruise with their own luxury boat, but also they acted as agent for Junk trips in Halong Bay. We decided to book a Junk trip, and what a great choice that was. The girl organising the trips booked us in for the following day and told us to be at the cafe for 12 noon. The following is our fantastic experience; Arrive at cafe 12 noon, private car takes us to our Junk, met by captain who shakes our hand, ourselves and approx 25 others embark the Junk, set sail and for the next 30 minutes we are served a Vietnamese banquet (too many types of food to list) superb cuisine, a guide talks us through the beauty of Halong Bay, we stop at a floating village where you can kayak for a small fee, set sail again through stunning scenery and then we are taken by foot into the most spectacular caves, virtually every colour of the rainbow to be seen on the walls and ceilings,then back on the Junk where copious amounts of fruit are laid out for us,then back to the pier, captain phones our driver to tell him what time we disembark and the driver is waiting for us as the Junk gets in, the driver then says he will drive us back to where our cruise ship is docked rather than just the cafe (at no extra cost), cost of the whole trip was $25 each (our cruise ship was charging $99 each not including food). This tour around the bay should not be missed, it will stay with you for life, just writing this post is making me re-live it, fantastic. The whole trip lasted just under 4 hours, real value
