This is my favorite place in Hoi An for settling and centering with some delicious tea as I look out on the quiet river. Reiko and staff create a beautiful space, infused with peace. I drink it all in.

We met a friend for coffee and were so pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the surroundings and the beauty of the staff. Reiko is a wonderful owner and she is meticulous about her creations. Cuisine with a conscience is their motto. You must stop by during your visit to Hoi An.

Thanks to the helpful reviews on tripadvisor we were curious to see if all the hype about the ambience of this kind of hidden cafe was true. Wow. This is easily one of the prettiest open aired, 2 floored cafe. It's incredibly peaceful and beautiful inside and outside. Each floor has fish ponds and an incredible view of the river.... More

Everything the other reviews say is true. U Cafe was recommended to us by the owner of our hotel (The Hoi An Villa) and we are so thankful. As soon as we arrived I knew we would be back.

Visit this place was one of the best part of this trip! A place where all details were planned with love for sure. The building was constructed to use the best of the nature to deal with the harsh weather of the area. It has around 4 floors and each floor has a small pound so beautiful and peaceful in... More

We enjoyed going back to U. The menu is small but the food is good -shrimp glass noodle salad, spring rolls and pork croquettes. Ice cream and juices are popular. It's a lovely place to sit and watch the river.

Lack of attention to customers and a Vietnamese eatery out of Spring rolls! They were never going to get a good review. Outlook would be nice on a cool night & it was clean but this didn't redeem it's pitfalls.
