Hội An Ancient Town can be overwhelming at times. Despite its charm there’s a constant influx of tour groups that populate the streets of Hội An which, when combined with the stifling heat, can leave you craving an oasis of calamity.

When hunting for a suitable cafe in which to recharge, it’s hard to find somewhere that isn’t packed with tourists, or charging similar prices to the expensive coffee shops in London. However, I have been lucky enough to discover the little gem that is Rosie’s Cafe. Situated down a quiet alleyway, surprisingly close to the Japanese Covered Bridge, Rosie’s Cafe is run by an adorable pair of best friends and is named after their favourite film; the romantic comedy ‘Love, Rosie’. Far from comical, the cafe infuses romantic Vietnamese touches (from the individual floral cutlery holders, to the bamboo chairs) with Instagram-friendly dishes, including avocado on toast.
