And what’s the most gorgeous Design Café in Da Nang?
It was not easy – at first. Once we got in the groove, we discovered so many coffee hubs.
Many coffee places in Da Nang come only with low, small tables and tiny chairs.
Looking for a place where also working was comfortable was not as easy as you might think.
Since we are working on the road for you, our dear reader, we wanted to find coffee shops in Da Nang with awesome WiFi and to fix our daily design shot. We prefer smaller coffee shops over CoWorking spaces.
That being said, there are a few CoWorking spaces in Da Nang. Just ask Mr. Google.
This is our ultimate list of design-led coffee shops in Da Nang, perfect for Digital Nomads and coffee lovers.
Some of them offer as well yummy food like banana pancakes.
So again, we spent more than two weeks in this city.
Da Nang is a perfect hub to experience modern Vietnam. It gives you an idea where the country stands and where it is heading. It’s more authentic than bustling Ho Chi Minh City, and less rough than the capital of Hanoi.
Also, it is the bigger brother of Hoi An. And although Da Nang offers a lot of cool things to do, Hoi An outshines it with its beauty and fame.
We felt instantly welcome and home in Da Nang.
Somehow, it is a tiny Vietnamese version of Barcelona. I can’t really pin down why, but there was this special vibe.
However, let us talk about the best cafes in Da Nang.
The order of the coffee shops is random. I enjoyed all of them. And yet, I have 3 favorite coffee places here.
My top 3 cafes are mentioned at the bottom of this article.
Just take a cup, and fill it with coffee to get in the mood for a great day out. This article is also perfect for coffee shop design.
1. Golem Coffee
Just a few steps away from Memory Hostel in the city center, we’ve discovered the Golem Coffee by chance.
We simply walked by and saw the small, cute entrance with the sign:
„Coffee and board games“
You had us at coffee…and board games.
We are simple people, really!
The coffee quality is very good and they offer a vary of different choices:
from traditional Vietnamese-style coffee to Latte and Cappuccino.
It is also a great place for the night to hang out with your new friends at Memory Hostel.
The 85 Design Cafe is build out of 4 former shipping containers, put together to a piece of art and design.
This is an exceptionable piece of coffee shop design.
They even included a pond with fishes and you can either sit outside in the sun, on the terrace or in side the air-conditioned containers.
Coffee quality? Top!
Café 85 Design is in the list of my top Coffee places.
A bit of a sad story: I found this place on my last night in Da Nang. We got lost in New Town, and drove-by with the motorbikes. We obviously stopped, checked it out and went for the next day to have a coffee.
Maybe it’s a good thing I found it so late. Otherwise I might have stopped looking for more awesome places in Da Nang.
4. Hide Out Café
Our absolute favorite! Tucked away in a small one-way street, you will only come across this place on this guide – or some other guide. Chances are seriously small you will walk by here.
The coffee is one of the best in town, reasonable prices and great staff.
Many digital nomads love to come here to get their work done. WiFi is quick! Even Vietnamese families come here, and we have even seen Tinder dates here. So if you are looking for a small, cute café for having a date, come here.
Our favorite drinks here are Latte and Coconut Coffee. ENJOY!
Good to know: The food here is excellent too! Try the Eggs Benedict or Banana Pancakes. Super Tasty!
5. Memory Hostel Café
Memory Hostel is not just a 5 Star Hostel with a roof-top terrace anymore.
It is also now: A coffee house!
The reception desk moved from the 1st floor to the 2nd to make space for coffee lovers.
And it has become one of the best Coffee Shops in Da Nang already.
After endless requests if that cool-looking lobby is a café, the team finally opened one.
Get high-end café with local products and have a seat. You will love it!
Cute little garden with a terrace, balcony as well as interior-option to sit down. The WiFi was fast as lightning.
The coffee quality at Six on Six was just great.
With smooth music in the background and fast WiFi, a great place to work for Digital Nomads in Da Nang.
The Six on Six is located fairly outside the city center, but actually close to the beach as well.
11. Pool House in a Luxury Resort
Have a coffee in a luxury resort – with the beach in front and swimming pools next to you.
We head over to Pool House in the Hyatt Regency Da Nang Resort.
You can just come here and ask for the pool house to have a coffee.
Sure, the coffee is more pricey than other cafés in this list, but it is certainly a worth it experience.
Fast WiFi, great coffee quality and last but not least: Super-friendly and fun staff!
Not many digital nomads come here, at all. The staff was curious about what we were doing, we ended up chatting with them a lot. You can also use the swimming pool, and you are just a step away from the beach.
12. Bookaholic Hostel
Last but not least, we have found another lovely hostel with an in-house coffee shop.
The Bookaholic Hostel is covered with books and lovely quotes around the topic.
A true bookaholic! A coffee always goes great with a good book, don’t you think?
You can come over just for a coffee.
13. Cloud Garden
A small paradise with a pond and cute design touches!
Cloudy Garden is a perfect coffee place to rest, have a coffee, read a book or work.
The barista always surprised us with a new design in the coffee cream itself.
You can tell, they really now what they are doing here!
The only downside: Unfortunately the staff sometimes loves to turn up the music.
It can be quite loud if you want to concentrate to work actually, which I personally do not like that much in a coffee shop. But again, just my opinion.
We went back here over an over again, we’ve probably spent most of our time here. So, actually, it couldn’t have been that bad! 🙂
Update: End of 2018 they had constructions, and are now a bit smaller. Still an awesome place, one of our favorites.
14. Den Da Coffee (closed!)
Update: Unfortunately Den Da Coffee is no longer open. We will leave it in this guide anyways, since it was a really beautiful place.
Located just across the street from Memory Hostel you can get a delicious Bhan My (a traditional Vietnamese sandwich).
Actually, that’s not what I wanted to mention…but keep it in mind when you’re hungry!
Just across the street from Memory Hostel you have the beautiful Den Da Café.
It is designed like a book store and has plenty of options to have a seat as it’s quite spacious.
You can either go up and find a seat next to the book wall. The tree right in the café is another highlight.
What about the coffee quality, I hear you ask?
GREAT! The coffee was creamy and fairly priced.

About this Guide
We traveled to Da Nang first time in 2017. Good times.
We got back only 1 1/2 years later to realize, few of the coffee shops changed their name, closed down, changed design etc.
Therefore, we updated this guide and we will keep it up to date as best as we can. And, please, you can help too. If you see anything new, please leave a comment below. Thank you so much!
Good to know: Please look up the location before you go to avoid any confusion about location. It happened to us in Da Nang. Look it up, mark it in the map and go.
