Hoi An

Espresso Station $$

Does size matter to you? When it comes to coffee, it does to me. Espresso Station serves up a huge double-shot coffee at 38,000 VND; that’s enough to tempt me back. Tucked away back from Tran Hung Dao, with traffic sounds muffled, and a smattering of greenery around, there’s a rather relaxing oasis vibe to this place.

The elusive Espresso Station, on 28 Tran Hung Dao – or rather 28/2 Tran Hung Dao as it turns out – appeared to be a tailor’s shop. A few laps later, some reading glasses and a quick google revealed a tiny lane with a tiny sign (running alongside the tailor’s shop) which led to a tiny coffee shop.

But the inadequate signage was no obstacle for the customers; in fact, it was hard to find a seat. I wondered why. Espresso Station seemed unremarkable and not dissimilar to many other small cafes. The answer was the coffee! Very good coffee indeed. (Don’t just take my word for it, many rate it the best coffee in Hoi An. Check out the glowing reviews on Trip Advisor).

The owner King (formerly known as Prince?), declared his passion for coffee and, fuelled by his need to escape the chaos of Saigon, decided to turn his grandmother’s house into a cafe. Poor old Granny, but hats off to King as the Espresso Station serves a mean cappuccino and appears to be doing very well indeed.
