Latest Ranking – Cà Phê

Click here for Quan Nhau

Here are Mr. Nguyen’s latest list (03/12/2024) for the San Jose coffee shops.   I decided to change it up a bit as there are just too many cafes here, but really only a few are worth going to, so I have removed those that aren’t worth being listed. This is just a list. I decided not to rank the cafes anymore because my opinions don’t really match most of you. These are only the opinions of Mr. Nguyen, and you may not agree with them. The price of drinks have gone up, and the average is now $8 per cup of coffee and $9 for juices and smoothies. Food is approximately $12-$16.

1. Fantasy Café
1040 McLaughlin Ave
San Jose, CA 95122
Fantasy Café (formerly CN1) is a classic Vietnamese coffee shop to go to. It is lingerie/bikini only, but their uniforms are probably the most creative of all the cafes and leaves a little bit to the imagination. Boss lady, Chi Uyen, has a great eye for Vietnamese café fashion. The waitresses are by far some of the hottest girls in the history of Vietnamese coffee shops in San Jose.  This coffee shop is a great place to take people who are new to the Vietnamese coffee scene.  Fantasy and has banned the smoking inside all day and night.  Coffee is $8/cup, and they have beer here as well. It’s a nice place to go to in the evenings for a beer. Fantasy closes at ~9PM.

2. Paradise Cafe
2400 Monterey Rd.
San Jose, CA 95111
Paradise remains at the top because of hospitality and talent. Their staff remains top notch in San Jose, and at any given time, they have about 3 or 4 girls working in lingerie. They have plenty of TVs for your sports viewing pleasure and a nice outdoor patio with umbrellas and heaters for cold weather. The location is somewhat out of the way for those working the tech scene, but they do have some great food options at their shop as well as many options around the café for those engineers looking for a spot to eat and drink Viet coffee. The tacos are awesome! It’s a good place to come in the evening to hang out also, and they typically show boxing and
MMA fights.

3. Nhà Hotspot

2133 Morill Ave.

San Jose, CA 95132
Nhà Hotspot is the new iteration of Hotspot Café and remains high in my book because of the great service and food.  The place is brighter than it used to be, and the menu is even better than before. The location is a bit far from the hustle and bustle of Little Saigon, but it is well worth the drive.  The attire is strictly PG, but it’s a somewhat refreshing change from the more risqué cafes.  The venue is spacious, and the waitresses are extremely friendly and attentive.  They make an effort to remember the regulars by name here, which actually gives this place a more intimate feel. Smoking has been banned completely. They have plenty of TVs to watch your favorite sporting event, Vietnamese and Korean pop, or EDM and hip hop music videos.  During football season, it’s probably one of the best places to watch every single football game on TV.
They offer a variety of food and drinks for a very affordable price.  Beer is on the menu. Coffee
is $8/cup.  Visit their Instagram site to get updates.

4.  Em Quyen
1998 Tully Rd.
San Jose, CA 95122
I believe the general consensus is that Em Quyen is the best risqué café right now.  Most guys on this forum love this place, and it’s a constant subject of conversation. It’s a great place to grab a cup of coffee in the morning before work.  With smoking banned all day, this place is one of the cleanest.  In my opinion, the girls here are the hottest of the 3 rique cafes. Quyen is still one of the prettiest owners around SJ.  This place gets packed frequently, and due to the small size of the café, it’s not uncommon to share tables with complete strangers.  There are plenty of HD TVs to watch your favorite soccer matches or football games. No food is served here, but you can bring your food over to enjoy the games on TV.  Coffee is $8/cup.  Bring lots of cash for the Happy Hour (or what I call the shakedown). The shop closes around 5PM.

5. DV Cafe
1947 McLaughlin Ave
San Jose, CA 95122
DV Café is the newest café in San Jose located right across from EQ and next to Palm Cafe. Attire is on the same level as EQ. The venue is nice and clean, and it’s non-smoking. The girls are extremely friendly, and a tip goes a long ways there. If you’re looking for risqueness, this ranks high on that scale, and I suggest you check it out. Bring lots of cash. Coffee is $10/cup, and they require you pay upfront as well as leave a tip when you leave. This place closes at 5PM.

6.  Palm Café

1969 Tully Rd. San Jose, CA 95122 Café still make the list, but as usual, the smoking kills this place. The waitresses rank high on the hotness scale, and their uniforms are excellent. I would like to visit this place more often, but I can only stand the cigarettes for so long. Waitresses are generally hot. You can view their roster on their Instagram. They do serve beer here, which bumps this place up a few spots. I’m assuming the coffee is $8 here also. This place is open late.

7.  Nguyen Espresso
1659 Tully Rd.
San Jose, CA 95122I’ve decided to include NE because it gets talked about a lot on this forum. However, it is one of my least favorite spots. Risqué factor is like EQ. Venue is small and cramped, but it is clean (relatively speaking) due to the non-smoking policy.  The service is decent. This place is recommended for newbies to the coffee shop scene if they want to see what these cafes are all about. Coffee is $8/cup.

  1. Complaining about 1 hour limit?
    Would you rather NE do a price increase?
    Everyone is hurting from Biden-nomics.

    For now
    Walk in, order 2 drinks up front and chill for 2 hours. Stop complaining, you voted for this.

    Vote Biden out of office. Wait til trump makes America great again then go back to 1 drink for unlimited time.

    1. Will the ladies allow you to order two drinks in advance? They seem pretty strict

        1. Please put down the Fox/Newsmax/OAN crack pipe. Donald Rumsfeld (remember him?) once said: You go war with the army you have, not the one you wish you had. No one is excited about Biden, but at least he’s not a crook. Biden didn’t have to pay $25,000,000 to settle a fraud suit against Trump University. Biden didn’t hold a fund raiser for charity, then keep the money for himself. Biden didn’t just recently suggest the oil industry give him $1000,000,000 dollars and he’d give them anything they wanted. (The list could go on…) Biden is an old guy trying to do the best he can for the country. Trump is an old guy trying to do the best he can for Trump.

    1. lol I asked both of them last time and they both played dumb. granted the rumor was they both just got in trouble the day before cuz they got caught. imma have to try again next time. a double bj for 120 sounds like the move

  2. *warning*
    Millie is on her period. Sat on my lap yesterday and bled on my leg. Be careful if she sits on your lap.

  3. Tue: Tiffany, Serena, Millie, Natalie, and a pretty Asian Hawaiian looking girl. Tiffany and Natalie have an amazing attitude.
    One girl wanted a 5 is a tip, 10 to touch, 25 lap dance. I had given 5 already. Had not seen that before. Also, was not charged extra to stay longer than an hour which is a nice change of pace. Overall good experience.

      1. Beautiful but is she still using pasties? If so then it’s not worth $10 bucks , barely even $5. Sad stat of affairs that you all keep tipping the pastie squad.

      1. U guys sound broke complaining over $5 don’t go to coffee if you can’t afford it

        1. Hello Stayhome. You sound like a NE server trying to slide into this blog. I suspect your name starts with an M. I am kinda broke. But I work hard, fully pay my taxes and child support so I can say I’m honest. Are you?

  4. Why so many beaners? It’s supposed to be more Asians since it’s a viet coffee shop but they keep hiring beaners.

    1. NE has a lot of Hispanic workers that go there and sj has a a lot of Hispanic girlies so it makes sense they would hire them. Tiffany is the only Asian there except Jessica but they are a lot older than the Hispanic girlies

        1. Yes Alyssa and Ariana and Monica and Valentina are very beautiful

        2. I love the mexican girls! Keep them coming. Those booties are the best for lapdances. Also keep the filipinas coming because a lot of them have round booties as well. NE is doing a good job at recruiting.

      1. Don’t know where Pinays come into the mix, but both Mandy and Nikki from the Philippines have been seen working at NE.

    2. Its the Great Melting Pot dude. The NE mamasans know their clientele. From observation, I know that a lot of the customers don’t/choose not to speak English. Hiring local Latinas allows the mamasans to capture the wallets of that demographic.

      Cruise down the street the other two clubs. Your likely to see fewer Hispanic customers. You’re not likely to see more than 50% Asian. You are also likely to pay more for your enjoyment: Scotch lapdances at DV, cabernet grinds at EQ, and cerveza at NE.

      The “pure” Vietnamese girls are probably all out getting PhD’s

  5. NE has a strict 60 min rule now. After my 60 min is up, I’ll just goto fantasy for the after party. No way I’m paying that bitch for a second drink.

    Or just goto fantasy and relax for as long as you want.

    If any girl bitch about your $5 hand tip, say no and never tip them again. Then Goto fantasy. The fantasy girls will appreciate the hand tip.

    1. A few of us used to go to NE after work almost weekly. Between Milli yelling at your and rolling her eyes right in front of you for only giving a $5 tip, to the cashier with the glasses saying we have to leave more of a tip on the table, to this ridiculous 60 minute time limit. They don’t get it and continue to mistreat customers. We all decided as a group not to go there any longer. Millie and the cashier with the glasses are driving that business to the ground. Will check out Fantasy or EQ.

      1. True, but all of them are hotter than NE Tiffany.

        Vote trump 2024. Biden is making everything expensive

  6. Went to DV today none of the girls spoke English lol. which one of you hombres wants to be my translator?

    1. The two new Spanish girls don’t speak English . All regular hoes there should be able to speak English

      1. everyone keeps telling me that the Colombians ready got in trouble for selling bjs lol. how do I ask en Español Google translate kings?

        1. 2 of the dancers told me lol. i told them about the girl at cheetahs that got caught in the middle of a bj and they told me about the Colombians.

          just word of mouth tho the colomboans didn’t tell me themselves

  7. If you’re an EQ/NE Presly fan, I saw her at Luv Cafe today. Said that she’ll be there every Friday.

  8. Anybody else love Serena’s natural d cups at NE? No pasties. And she has the sweet, girl next door look and personality. She’s the young latina gal with a great smile and big natural tits.

    1. I only saw Serena on her first day at NE. Haven’t seen her since, is she still working at NE?

        1. I saw Serena give an older mexican guy a handful of her cash she made that day. I wonder if she has a pimp or something. That sucks. She’s a sweet gal and should be able to keep all the money she makes.

  9. Are the NE girls still wearing pasties e.g. Arianna, Alexis, Tiffany and Valeria or any others?
    I pray not…

      1. That’s a bogus excuse. I’m sure one or 2 guys were aggressive, but all they have to do is not sit with that guy anymore. Or take them off for the customers they know are gentle. Or when they sit just say don’t pinch the nipples, many options.
        But They are just using that as a reason to be PG and get Team Player pay.
        Too many simps letting them get away with it. That needs to stop!

  10. Tiffany is just an highend Escort. If you cant afford her. Dont wast giving her small amount. She will not put out for you

  11. Overrated maybe, but I think to say she is not pretty is a bit of a stretch especially when comparing her to the other girls there. My 2 cents.

  12. Customer at Starbucks: “Wanhh! I just want to buy a cup of hot water and a teabag, so I can sit here for 3 hours watching a movie on my laptop. I’m not coming back here!!!” Starbucks: “Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out”.

  13. I was at cheetahs last night vixen was working. someone did confirm that she got caught with a dick in her mouth tho lol but I guess they don’t fire you for that over there after all

  14. From a business stand point, it is a good idea to ask customers to stay only 1 hour unless customers buy more drinks.
    I have been to coffee shops and some of the customers stay there for 3 or 4 hours. They need to make room for other customers. It is about turn over of customers.

    1. If they really cared about maintaining business, they would at least tidy up the place and get rid of those big ass spider webs in the corner by the damn TV

    2. True. The problem is they are not polite about it. I once got told that after about 15 minutes of being there. Only later did I realize that they had sat me in someone else’s chair and she had messed up those notes she keeps so they thought I was there too long.
      In any case, I don’t know who can sit there for more than an hour. I get bored around the 30 min to 45 min mark what with the limited interaction and the sausage fest ratio.
      Come to think of it, they aren’t polite about anything.
