Cafes that “motivate” Hanoi office workers to work productively all-day

Not only are there high tables and chairs, and many electrical outlets, but the food and drinks at these 5 cafes are all at affordable prices.

In Hanoi, there is no shortage of beautiful, diverse cafes for you to “live virtual” or chat with friends. But if you want a peaceful corner to work, especially for freelancers or office workers who often change space, it is not easy. If you are still struggling to find an address to have a productive day, please refer to the following 5 cafes.

Tranquil Books & Coffee

True to its name, Tranquil is designed with the main bass tone, intertwined with the green plants, bringing a peaceful and quiet beauty that not everywhere can be.

Cafes that “motivate” Hanoi office workers to work productively all-day

Among establishments located around the Ba Dinh area, 18B Nguyen Bieu attracts the most people to work and study. That’s because it meets almost all the elements such as airy, natural light and also has a faint coffee scent, making the mind more comfortable.

Even when the restaurant is full of tables, everyone keeps their mind, or if the customer’s conversation is a bit noisy, Tranquil’s staff will immediately remind you. A small minus point is that sometimes the wifi at the Nguyen Bieu campus is a bit shaky.


– CS1: No. 5 Nguyen Quang Bich, Hoan Kiem

– CS2: No. 8 Nguyen Quang Bich, Hoan Kiem

– CS3: No. 18B Nguyen Bieu, Ba Dinh

Opening hours: 08:00 – 22:30

Price: 45,000 VND – 55,000 VND

Rock Coffee

If only looking from the outside, many people would have thought that Toka Coffee only had a tiny space, because the payment counter was located at the entrance. However, after ordering drinks, you follow a small path, deep into the garden and will see in front of an extremely large space with two ancient buildings.

Perhaps thanks to the above “misunderstandings”, the people who come to Toka Coffee, whether it’s a weekday or a Sunday, are almost always regular customers. Bring your laptop over here, you can choose for yourself a corner in the house, or outside in the yard and sit down to handle the work. There is also no need to worry too much about the “spine” because there are high tables and chairs with backrests.

Address: No. 36 Thi Sach, Ngo Thi Nham, Hai Ba Trung

Opening hours: 07:00 – 23:00

Price: 50,000 VND – 70,000 VND

Tiny Post Cafe

At the end of the week, Tiny Post is a “virtual living” place that young people who love the intellectual style, a little bit European, come to. But on weekdays, this place is very quiet and welcoming to those who want to find inspiration for reading or working.

All 6 establishments of the shop are very large, marked by bookshelves touching the ceiling and many corners with natural light. Not to mention, there are also tables and chairs, suitable for both solo travelers and large groups. Among them, the space at lane 67 Phung Khoang and Nguyen Khang are the two most quiet places, employees often play music without good lyrics, suitable for working.


– CS2: No. 251 Nguyen Khang, Cau Giay

– CS5: No. 77 Alley 67 Phung Khoang, Nam Tu Liem

– CS6: No. 30 Alley 181 Truong Chinh, Thanh Xuan

Opening hours: 08:00 – 22:30

Price: 50,000 VND – 70,000 VND

Nha Nam Book & Coffee

In the system of bookstores and cafes that Nha Nam has set up in Hanoi, Nguyen Quy Duc’s campus has the highest score for space. The first floor is a bookstore, the second floor is a cafe model but is separated into corners. There is a sitting area for reading, a high table and chairs, a comfortable sofa for studying, working or chatting.

In fact, many days when it is too crowded, it will be a bit noisy, not completely silent like other shops. But if on a cool day, you can go to the outdoor space to sit. Or if you want to “use 100% concentration”, please contact the service in advance to be arranged into a private room called “quiet corner”. Here is limited to seating, only extremely small keystrokes, mixed with melodious music.

Address: No. 3 Nguyen Quy Duc, Thanh Xuan

Opening hours: 07:30 – 23:00

Price: 35,000 VND – 55,000 VND

Way to go back home

Nestled in a small alley on Nguyen Hong Street, Back Street has a rustic and genuine “vibe”. All door frames, tables and chairs, floors and decorations here are made of wood.

The privacy of Road Back comes from the fact that the shop has separated the space into many different corners and offices. And if you want to relax, you can go to the row of seats outside, look directly at the alley and watch the sun and rain.

Note that if you want to sit and work for a long time here, you should bring mosquito spray or ointment. And even if the shop allows smoking, it is not recommended to smoke in the room, to avoid the smell.

Address: No. 1, Lane 10 Nguyen Hong, Dong Da

Opening hours: 07:30 – 23:00

Price: 30,000 VND – 45,000 VND

Tranquil, Back Street or the above cafes, each with different styles, but the most common point is that they all bring a peaceful space and basic utilities, suitable for office workers “running deadlines”. Above all, going there, seeing many people also working enthusiastically, will surely create motivation and help your spirit be much higher.
