Discovering a Hidden Plant-Filled Cafe Courtyard in Hoi An

Discovering a Hidden Plant-Filled Cafe Courtyard in Hoi An

Hello Friends,

On a sunny Sunday recently, I hopped on my motorbike for a day trip to visit a friend in Hoi An. They had a new-to-me cafe to check out located down a tucked away alley in the atmospheric old town. Venturing to this secret garden courtyard revealed a plant-lover's paradise - the Ancient Town Coffee and Restaurant. With its open-air architecture, lush greenery, and chilled vibe, it's a hidden gem. So today, photos and a story for you.

I navigated the winding backstreets of Hoi An to reach this inconspicuous cafe. Inside the entryway, stepping into the main courtyard felt like finding a tropical oasis in the city. A wide ground level deck with nice tables sprawled under a roll-back roof, dotted with hanging ferns and orchids.

We grabbed an coffees and picked a perfect spot to catch up while admiring the surroundings. The courtyard exuded a relaxed, carefree atmosphere. Leafy potted plants everywhere created a living decoration. Gentle music floated over the space, just audible over the gurgle of fountains.

Stairs up to the second floor

After chatting for a while in the breeze, I wandered upstairs to discover even more plant magic. The sunny second floor was a greenhouse of succulents.

Plump leaves and exotic flowers burst from every container. Paired with stunning rooftop views, this was an Instagrammer's paradise.

While not ideal for laptop focused work, Ancient Town's lush ambiance is perfect for unwinding.

The globally inspired menu provides tasty fuel for long conversations about life, philosophy, and future plans to change the world. You leave feeling refreshed.


Next visit, I definitely want to try their woodfired pizzas, which my friend told me about. The highlight is apparently a whimsical dragon pizza oven, combining culinary and visual art. Just another endearing touch for this bohemian cafe.

Let me know if you discover any similar garden oasis cafes in your city! Whether meeting friends or just reading solo, the human spirit thrives surrounded by living art.

Places like this are well worth seeking out for moments of serenity.

NOt the best view, but still neat
