Yupio - Homemade Cafe, Hanoi

In my last post I talked about studying at Cafés here in Hanoi.
Well, forget that part for today.

Today I'd like to show you one of the cutest (if no THE cutest) Cafés here in Hanoi, the Yupio.
I came upon this Café via Instagram a while back and made a screenshot, so that I can find it when I come to Vietnam. Definitely easier said than done! It lies at Ngõ 20B Núi Trúc, which means it's not in the High Street. Núi Trúc is not too far away from my place, at least by motorbike. I couldn't have reached it by walking. So if you're staying somewhere near the Old Quarter, keep that in mind. 
Yupio Café looks like a mom-and-pop shop and I was so impressed by all the details. The furnishing is very tastefully. Asians tend to overdo it, especially when it comes to cute stuffs. But this Café feels all around perfect to me. I liked the plants there, the notes, the blackboards... And since it isn't in the high street, the Café is rather quiet, which fits perfectly to the whole theme of it. 
And the main reason why I wanted to visit this Café: their menu!
I always wanted to make those flower pot cakes myself and the pictures on IG looked too good. Also, what's the deal with this cotton candy drinks?

My cousin and I ordered two flower pot cakes, which were Tiramisu cakes. I also had a Matcha-Cookie ice drink and my cousin had... I forgot that xD Nothing with matcha though. The owner asked us if we wanted to have cotton candies to our drinks as well. Because we already ordered the cakes and our drinks are rather sweet too, we thought it would be better to order only one cotton candy. I mean, even though I love everything sweet, there is still a limit to what I can handle at a time. But basically you can order your cotton candy to every drink.
Their Tiramisu was very yummy, though it was less flavored than Tiramisus in Europe. Still delish though! The matcha drink was ok. I figured out that I don't like the matcha they use here in Vietnam too much (there are exceptions!) so, yeah. The cotton candy was suprisingly good. At least as good as cotton candies can be haha It wasn't too sweet and just a nice snack while talking.
Flower Pot Cake - Tiramisu
Too cute to eat. - So true!

This Café is a 5 out of 5 in my opinion. I really liked the details they put in here and the cakes are very good as well. The staff/owner is nice and friendly, though I don't think that she can speak English. But ordering shouldn't be much of a problem still.
Everything is super cute, from the Café itself to their cakes to their drinks (get that cotton candy and take pictures!!) Of course I could have sit and study here as well. But first, it's too far to reach by just walking and second, believe me, you need someone to be excited with about this place ^3^
