Café Lam

Café Lam was opened by Nguyen Van Lam in 1956. Over the years, the walls of the café have been covered with gouache paintings, watercolours and oils donated by artists as payment for the many hours they spent here drinking and talking. This typical Hanoi-style café has managed to retain its atmosphere thanks to the efforts of the Lam family. The coffee here is excellent, although beer and freshly squeezed lemon juice are also on the menu.
