Brother's Café

27–29 Phan Boi Chau Street
Hoi An
Tel: 84 510 914 150's insider take:

Brother's century-old colonial building is the loveliest setting in all of Hoi An—and that's saying a lot in a city that's a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Make a beeline through the street-front bar to the lantern-lit garden, and request a table for two on the patio overlooking the Thu Bon River. A favorite among independent travelers, the café also draws a smattering of damn-the-budget backpackers with an appreciation for fine food and cocktail glasses wrapped in banana leaves. Set and à la carte menus carry a range of spicy pan-Asian dishes, including sautéed beef with chile and lemongrass, as well as "white rose,'' the shrimp-stuffed rice-flour dumplings that are a Hoi An specialty.

Open daily 10 am to 11 pm.
