I have always had a burning dream of opening a cafe in my 20s; a place where everybody can find stillness and serenity in their souls. As strangely as it may sound, stepping into Tranquil is like seeing all my imagination and aspiration suddenly come true. Tranquil gives me butterflies like no other, and I hope someday, my future cafe can capture many's souls and minds as perfectly as Tranquil has done to me.
Staying up to its name, Tranquil is a place for someone to enjoy calmness behind its door, and leave the hustle of Hanoi aside. You can read hundreds of books and comics arranged systematically on the huge bookshelf, play some random notes that come to your mind out of the blue with Tranquil's ukelele, paint few pages of your coloring book under scrutiny, or simply, sip your favorite coffee or other drinks enjoyably. Tranquil's atmosphere is so fragile that it should not be damaged by huge crowds. Every corner of this cafe could wake up your long-looked-for inspirations or renovation ideas, like my friends' idea of adding a wooden stair adjacent to the shelf so that people could go up and take some books they need. On a side note, some drinks are highly recommended by my friends, such as London Fog, Apple Pie Frappucino and a Yogurt drink I do not remember its full name, with price at 40,000 dong on average. Tranquil has not yet offered any things to eat, but hopefully, in the future, it will do so.
For the last note, I am not sure whether I will regret sharing Tranquil to others and not keeping it to myself, but then I believe that the magic of Tranquil should be spread around. So here it is, my Tranquil Cafe's "la petite" thoughts!
