Coming to this coffee shop, visitors can enjoy snacks and play games that used to be popular with children 20 years ago.
Cu Xa is a coffee shop located on the 2nd floor of the A11 Khuong Thuong, Ton That Tung, Hanoi. The dormitory used to be the residence of the twins, also the current shop owners. After returning Hanoi, they opened a cafe in the house with many memories. Most of the design of the building, like windows and floor tiles, are kept intact. The shop has many old decorations, helping to recreate the childhood corner of the 1980 – 1990 generation.
The indoor space is about two dormitories with an area of 60m2. The owner buys most of the tables and chairs here. The innermost part of each house is the area for those who like to sit comfortably on the floor.
