Rosie’s Café on Nguyen Thi Minh Khai Street, just up the alley from Nu Eatery, is a delightful marriage of Vietnamese coffee tradition and modern aesthetics. Rosie’s offers a wide selection of coffee beverages and fresh juices along with a calm, cool space to have a chat, read, or work.
Opened in March of 2016, Rosie’s Café is the product of over a year of dedication and hard work by owners My and Thuy, recent university graduates. Taking inspiration from their travels, the owners have a created a very hip and modern space tucked in a cozy corner of the Old Town. Though only a few minutes walk from the Japanese Bridge, Rosie’s Café feels like it is a world away from the crowds and chaos of popular Hoi An.
Rosie’s brews traditional Vietnamese robusta beans, served hot or cold with a complimentary cookie or biscuit. Their iced coffee—which is particularly refreshing and my personal recommendation to visitors—is cold-dripped through a large glass phin (cup and filter used to brew Vietnamese coffee) in the front of the café and bottled in Rosie’s signature amber bottles. It is served in a tall, chilled glass and accompanied by a homemade chocolate chip cookie or coconut biscuit for 20,000 vnd.
Rosie’s also offers a wide variety of fresh pressed, local fruit juices and teas. Complement any beverage with a light snack such as avocado and tomato over toast or similar light fare. Homemade pastries are also regularly available.
If you’re looking for a place to beat the mid afternoon heat of Old Town, I suggest stopping by Rosie’s Café for a coffee and snack. The owner’s story is as interesting as the café itself and you won’t regret sampling any of their delicious coffee concoctions.
