Latest Ranking – Cà Phê

It’s been quite some time since I’ve updated this list, but here are Mr. Nguyen’s latest rankings for the San Jose coffee shops.   There are some new cafes that have sprung up as well as a few that have changed locations. Some have closed as well. The rankings reflect the cafes as a whole (girls, venue, coffee, food, service, girls, smoking/non-smoking, and girls).

1.  Em Quyen
1998 Tully Rd.
San Jose, CA 95122
I believe the general consensus is that Em Quyen is the best café right now.  Most guys on this forum love this place, and it’s a constant subject of conversation. I’ve decided to move it to #1. 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.  Deanna, Alina, and Melanie keep EQ one of the best cafes in San Jose.  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 run next door to Subway or the taqueria, and bring your food over to enjoy the games on TV.  Coffee is $6/cup.  The shop closes around 5PM.

2. Paradise Cafe
2400 Monterey Rd.
San Jose, CA 95111
Paradise remains #1 in my books 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. Their notables include Christine, Kelly, Janet, and Jenny. Sadly, Ruby Renegade left, and she will be greatly missed. They have plenty of TVs for your sports viewing pleasure and a nice outdoor patio with umbrellas and heaters for cold weather. Parking can be problematic at times, but I just park across the street at the motel if it’s full. 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. I believe this is the only remaining SJ coffee shop with $5 coffee.

3. HS Coffee & Juices (a.k.a. Hotspot Café)   (
2133 Morill Ave.
San Jose, CA 95132
Hotspot remains high in my book because of the great service.  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.  They’ve branded the Hotspot name and have been known to pass out T-shirts and sweaters with their brand on it.  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. Some of the notable waitresses include Kathy, Nhi, Nhi, Jaylynn, and boss lady, Thuy-Anh and sisters, Mai and PA. 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 now on the menu. Coffee is $6/cup.  Visit their Instagram site to get updates on who is working.

4. Fantasy Café
1040 McLaughlin Ave
San Jose, CA 95122
Dream Café
2444 Alvin Avenue
San Jose, CA 95121 820415021345938/?fref=ts
Fantasy Café (formerly CN1) and Dream Café (formerly CN2) have slipped a little in the last year. They’ve lost Nicole, arguably the hottest viet café waitress of all time. The cafés are 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.  Tran, Kathy, Missy, and a few other waitresses round out their roster.  These two cafes are a great place to take people who are new to the Vietnamese coffee scene.  No one I have brought has ever been disappointed.  Fantasy and Dream Cafe have banned the smoking inside all day and night.  Coffee is $6/cup.

5. Remedy Cafe  (
1150 Murphy Ave. Suite C
San Jose, CA
Remedy is a new café in San Jose located on the corner of Murphy Ave. and Old Oakland happens to be conveniently located near my office making it easy for me to come here during my lunch break. Ngoc (a.k.a Lily and Roxanne) of EQ fame owns this shop, and she wisely chose a location near all the tech companies along North First Street. Remedy is an excellent café, and from the start, Ngoc has run this place the way I would if I ever owned a café. The talent level is
excellent, the place is non-smoking and clean, there are plenty of TVs, food is great, music is good but not deafening, and the vibe is chill. At any given time, there are two waitresses working. They are extremely friendly and have been known to sit down and chit chat. Typical attire is skirts and bra or bikini. Coffee is $6/cup. You can visit their Instagram site to get updates on who’s working.

6.  Nguyen Espresso
1659 Tully Rd.
San Jose, CA 95122
I’ve decided to move NE up to the #6 spot. They have improved the talent level, but I still believe the top 5 have the best talent. 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 $6/cup.

7.  Palm Café (
1969 Tully Rd. San Jose, CA 95122
I decided to move Palm Café to #7, but it could be higher if they banned cigarettes. The waitresses rank high on the hotness scale, and their uniforms do not leave a lot to the imagination, but the smoke absolutely kills this place. I would like to visit this place more often, but I can only stand the cigarettes for so long. Waitresses are generally hot. Julie, Tina, and
Kathy are their notables. You can view their roster on their Instagram. They do serve beer here, which bumps this place up a few spots.

8. Pandora Café (Closed.)
1174 N. Capitol Ave.
San Jose, CA 95132
I have mixed opinions about this cafe. Pandora is big with lots of TVs, but I can’t frequent this place much because of the cigarettes. The girls dress like they do at Hotspot, so essentially tank tops and mini-skirts. They have recently brought in waitresses from the OC, and if they continue to do this, it should draw a larger crowd to their shop. As a result, I’ve moved them up a couple notches. The venue itself looks nice and is very spacious, and they do serve food here as well.

9. Thoa Café
999 Story Rd., San Jose, CA – Vietnam Town
Thoa Café monopolizes the café scene in Vietnam Town.  Unfortunately, Thoa Café allows smoking all day now, and as a result, I have not moved this place up the ladder. My favorite waitress here is Jasmine. She is very easy on the eyes and very friendly at the same time. Waitresses are dressed in lingerie. It’s located conveniently next to Pho 90 and Com 90. Coffee is $6/cup.

10. Quynh Huong
2441 Alvin Ave
San Jose, CA 95121
Quynh Huong Café is formerly Courtyard/Vogue and is still located across the street from Chuck E Cheese off of Tully Rd. I haven’t been able to check this place out, personally. Phuong (formerly Ozone and Tao) works here. It’s a nice, big venue with plenty of TVs. They have a wide selection of food and drinks, including alcohol. The cigarettes ruin this place. It does not make sense to me why they have a huge courtyard if they are going to allow smoking inside. Non-smokers can’t escape the smoke, inside or out..

11. Tylan Café
Capitol Ave.
San Jose, CA 95133
Tylan is a decent, little café. Coffee is good, and they have plenty of TVs for sports. They allow smoking inside and out, unfortunately. But they do have their loyal regulars there.

12. V Café
1692 Tully Rd. Ste 1, San Jose, CA 95122 – behind National Summit bank. Next to former Quyen Café.

13. Xinh Xinh Café
1075 Tully Rd, at the corner of Mc Laughlin. Same plaza with Com Tam Dat Thanh.

14. Dolce Expresso
Located at the corner of Quimby and Tully Rd.  Same plaza with Michael’s.

15. Café Dạ Thảo
Located on Story Road across the street from Walmart.

  1. Who’s working eq & ne today? ……..
    Those of you posting disrespectfu comments- go home. If you don’t like the ladies, hang out somewhere else.

  2. Alina has some fine a$$ titties. I’m not a pus man so really not that into her dirty cooze. She’s got a chubby fat a$$ though. Shame she’s not working it more.

    1. it was mentioned that she got clam once and to many BBC got into her puzzy so her puzzy is deformed.

      1. She don’t got no clam in her as$ right? I’ll just go in there, raw. suck on them puffy titties she’s been pulling out.

  3. Quyen asked Nikki to talk to a couple of guys today, about posting stuff about EQ.

    Just post the lineups. Everyone on this site knows about everything else. No need to talk about them.

    1. Who the Fk is quyen to say anything? we are the customers… we pay her bills we can say anything we want! So she doesn’t want us to say alina and melanie are showing their puzzy, right?!

      1. BJ–What’s your goal? Cause the site to close down or the coffee shops altogether? Boss at EQ must question your IQ.

    2. Chuck–You are so right. The line-up, no comments about attire, amigos. MPF–No reason for unkind criticism about the ladies’ appearence is appropriate either. Just go to a different cs.
      Late shift NE = Jasmine, Isabel & Michelle. Late shift intel is helpful.

  4. Muchas Papas Fritas–If you can’t handle real women like NE’s gorgeous Thao & Heather, maybe you are a prebubescent nino who should patronize the ninas in a girl scout troop. Perhaps the ninas would share their brownies & fritos with you. Take LA Frustrado along with you, but beware that he might do whatever he did to get kicked out of NE. (Mamasan doesn’t eject hombres umless they deserve it.) You both might prefer to play penis with your gringo compadre who parades around around outside with his butt-crack showing. He’s probably showing for u anyway.

    1. you must be 60 yr old to think thao is gorgeous! What a loser you must be…

      1. MPF–If u drive carefully & don’t smoke, u might get grow out of your diapers & appreciate the beauty of Thao, Heather & Gina. Until then, you can rub yourself while you peek of the skirts of little ninas playing jax. A loser is a rude bambino who writes hurtful comments about senioritas who’d be disappointed if changing your diapers. “Ooh, porquito! Almost nothing here, Amigo!” 🙂

        1. This Mexican low life bitch thinks that money is nothing when she herself are working as a hooker selling her body to feed herself and her low life family. Look at yourself bitch before judging the money .You are nothing but shit compare to the money .Her Facebook name is Verri Perez.Con cho nay di lam dy ban than nuoi cai mieng cua no va cai Gia dinh cho cua no vay ma no giam noi la Dong tien khong co Quan trong. Hay Nhin Lai May di dy cho. Do cai thu lam dy ma tung dau minh ngon lam . Ban than May chua bang cai mong chan cua Dong tien.

  5. I can’t wait to go in the shower with Alina at em quyen because I know shell do something spectacular for $100.

          1. BBC. I had to look that up. 🙂 Does it seem like there are less hot waitresses than there used to be? Is it because these shops don’t generate as much money as they used to? What is the deal here. Paradise is nice but can’t deal with the smoke. CN/CN2 used to good but that has died as well.

  6. Disappointed with NE. Girls are not that hot; no really. Just because they show, that does not equate to beauty. On top, I was kicked out by mamasan after one hour and in the middle of watching a game. The game was more interesting that the talent there. I was pissed off and after paying I decided to leave a $3 tip, one of the girls bitched me out asking that I should leave more than that.

    1. NE sucks! Thao is fat and ugly. I see her trying to get attention from guys by flirting with them… maybe to sucker them to give her nice tips. Gina is fking ugly and stupid. lisa is nice one of the bunch. heather is freaking old who puts on globs of makeup to try to look young. The drinks are overpriced! $8 for a non-coffee drink??? $3 tip is to much man. I give a couple bucks or sometimes none. Next time don’t tip them. you are not obligated to tip.

        1. Ok I guess if you don’t like the girls thats one thing, but complaining about price? Seriously? Get some fucking skills and get a decent job. I wipe my ass with 8$ after a fart.

    2. Thank you. Just because they show all don’t make them hot. A lot of y’all need your eyes checked.

      1. She’s a hit or miss. Some people like her some hate her. Most of the girls that work coffee hate her.

        Some people think she’s gorgeous while others think she wears too much makeup she looks fake and plastic. That’s why this guy on here calls her Michael Jackson.

        Some customers don’t like her because she tells them to put down more tip money if she thinks she deserves more money.

        She works at many coffee places, none of them want her on their full time line up. She’s around to fill in gaps in schedules.

        She’s someone good enough to hire, but she’s on no ones A-list.

  7. Who do you guys rate as hottest girl right now out of all the shops? Regardless whether she’s team player or not?

    Also, what about nicest?

      1. Alina a team player again. Looks fantastic. Titties popping out like she wants guys to suck on them or cum on them.

        1. Oh I love it when Melanie bends over and her clit…’oh my. Wish I had more money so I could grope Alina’s big ass tits.

      1. David, can you do anything to keep these loosers who discuss attire from posting? They will get the shop owners in trouble and we’ll have to resort to sports bars & fishing for fun.

          1. People dont like to keep it PG. Unless David gonna shutdown this website .

        1. So why do you want us to not discuss the attire. Are you acknowledging that the girls at EQ really are walking around topless and mostly n@ked?

          1. Interesting–Did that spike pierce your brain?
            David–Can you, technologically, edit comments when appropriate to do so?

        2. ‘Bad comments’ might come from other coffee shops, lol , we can’t stop them, just enjoys our moments. Cheers!

          1. Really kids, can’t we all just get along. There is no need to fight. We all want to see girls with questionable attire or lack there of. We do we need to fight. I for one really like it when they walk around bottomless. However I know some people prefer when they walk around topless. Which place is better for mostly N*ked women. EQ or NE? Thoughts anybody?

  8. What is everyone’s opinion on the best time to hit up NE on weekdays? Other than shift change at 2-ish.

      1. elijah, alina is no longer a virgin and been stretched open with 3 babies. Her pssy is not young and fresh like melanies…

        1. Well, probably over 50% of the girls have at least 1-2 kids. Don’t think Melanie is a virgin either so that pssy has been tampered. Alina is still a hot MILF with some pokies and visible camel toe, just not team player like she used to.

          1. Alina is still a hot MILF, I agree. Her titts are nice when she shows them. She is on the thick side but she has a decent look ass. Also Alina is fun to talk too. She sits and talks once and a while. Wish she would do happy hour like Mel. Or should I call it happy 5 minutes as that about as long as that lasts.

          2. MILFLOVER, alina got 3 kids but she’s fk way more dicks than you can imagine. I’m not sure why she likes black one though… her pusy is all mangled.

          3. Well I guess she’s not gonna be interested in me then! Polar opposite of bbc lol.

          4. BJ, I just have to make sure Alina has no rodent infestation down there. LOL.

      2. I don’t care if they are virgins or having babies. I came to watch your horny faces looking at the girls, hahaha. The other reason is just the same as you guys.

    1. Yep u tell them G6! Tell them to to keep it PG or else games is over…you know what i mean…lol

      1. I know what you mean too! Don’t talk about the girls walking around n*ked! Don’t talk about them showing there b**bs! 🙂

  9. I disagree with the rankings I went to Em Quyen yesterday afternoon only to be scolded then ignored for 35 minutes while the three waitresses came over to hug the guy next to me,even when I spoke to then sat there with empty drink till I got tired of it and left. Now Nquen espresso earlier that day was outstanding three lovely waitresses willing tosit and talk even show slot of skin, plus one cashier even though a little bit more size than I like still cute and leaves nothing to the imagination and friendly and attentive to the customers needs.

    1. I understand the reason why EQ and NE seem to be the only updates here. But I am curious what ppl think about the other cafes or girls from the other cafes. Are they just not worth the time?

    2. Ratings are one persons opinion.

      If ratings based on mention here it’d be

      2. NE
      below rarely mentioned
      3 CN
      4 CP

      All others never.

    3. They don’t really need to be nice, they have girls walking around wearing nothing, guys will show up, even if they are treated like shit. And I suspect the owners know it. They probably think most of the customers are morons, and maybe they are right. We get no respect. 🙂

    4. Only 6$ for the coffee and you want them to come chat chit with you huh? No wonder you got no respect.

        1. If you are paying them for conversation then you are a moron. What the hell could they possibly have to say that is interesting anyways. Pay for the coffee and enjoy the view.

          1. yes… melanie has a nice p*ssy… would i get slapped if i try to touch her p*ssy or lick it?

      1. Jessica escaped eq after cute, little Nikki the spinner replaced her. Melanie was fantastic!

  10. Stuck at work so not going today, but holy shit has the last 2 sundays been bad. My crew rolled up at 9am the last 2 sundays and there were no seats left. Quyen even used up all the extra chairs. 🙁

    1. Best of luck my bros. Otherwise ya’ll got about 2 dozen other options to hit up and report :p
