Mia Coffee has been praised for offering the best non-Vietnamese coffee in all of Hội An, if not Vietnam. The coffee shop is small, with porch-style seating in the front, and a balcony from which you can get a great street view. There are plenty of fans to keep you cool and Wi-Fi is also available. Should you desire to take some house-roasted coffee back with you, the staff will help you grind and package their beans.

Hidden away on Nguyen Thi Minh Khai is May Concept, the ideal retreat for enjoying a quiet cup of coffee. May Concept is a small Franco-Vietnamese shop-house filled with dark wood furniture. The coffee lounge area exists beside a handicrafts shop and garden, in which there is a lily pond. The coffee here is freshly roasted in-house and Vietnamese. Emphasize that you like your coffee strong if you want a true Vietnamese experience – locals tend to think Westerners drink weak coffee.
