Here and there

Referring to Le Phung Hieu street, many people must remember the image of the time-stained collective area in the center of the city. There are many scenes that make people think of an old Hanoi that has remained intact over the years. Autumn in Hanoi, just passing along this street is enough to feel fluttering.

Here and there is a fairly new cafe located in the apartment on the 4th floor of the old dormitory. Going to the shop if you don’t pay attention to the signboard will be a bit difficult to find because this collective area is the same everywhere.

The shop has a fairly small space with seats close together, so it will feel not very private, each seat is only enough for 2 people, so if you go to a large group, you have to sit separately. However, this is also a special point of this cafe, because the guests come here as if to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, to find themselves a peaceful corner.
