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. Is Drama around today? I haven’t seen her booty in a while and I miss it.

    1. By “spinner” you are referring to Heather or Lisa? Are there other spinners there? Or do I have the definition of spinner wrong?

    1. Anybody know if Melanie will be around tomorrow? I’m thinking about coming for the Friday lunch special.

  2. Heather is doing nuke dance right now. Come quick and don’t forget your mouth wash!

    1. H. Licker that’s a funny handle! Let us know what hospital you’ll be at so we can visit you.

      1. Churchfo, please let me know when Heather performs the lap dance today. I can’t wait to see her lap dance performance. I have my mouth wash with me all the time. I can’t stay there for too long; therefore, I need your help to let me know as soon as you can. I can be there in 5 minutes.

        1. Nice. I ate alot of garlic fries yesterday so I hope u dont mind flavored nips since I’m gonna get there 1st. NOT! Who knows where some of your mouths have been!
          (◣_◢) 凸

        2. truc, make sure you don’t have any cuts in your mouth. easy to get STDs.

          1. I finished at a parlor. Spent half hour going down on a gal. Now I’ll go NE

          2. Mmm. Thanks for the gonorrhea. Can I have a side order order of oral crabs too?
            ʕ ಡ ﹏ ಡ ʔ ノ

  3. Happy NY all. Are there any update on who is serving at NE or EM today Jan 1??

  4. NE: Janet , Droma and Thao . Great outfits on Janet and Droma . Thao wears the same outfit everyday.

    1. This boy loves Thao’ everyday outfit but is hoping she doesn’t get anymore tats. . . Who’s working EQ?

      ……Hey buddy, don’t get miffed because we have different political opinions. In November my Electoral College vote will go to the Democrat just like yours, whether I like it or not.

      1. caffebraker, you are in love with thao? are you 400lbs you disgusting sick fk? thao is a fat elephant. I wouldn’t fk her for free!

        1. BJ-are you tiny? ha ha 🙂 Well, tiny’s ok. But to each his own. I think she’s a doll, except for the tats. Let us know who starts the new year out at eq as well as ne.

    2. Isabel wore a lime green outfit the last time I was there. Real head turner.

  5. Was pretty good at NE Don’t know what time or day is best. It’s luck if you’re there right time

    Went to luv got a $8 sandwich afterwards. Gals are kinda friendly more of a local clientele

    1. Which servers provide lap dances? Heather, Thoa, Janet, Drama , Isabelle or Lisa???

      1. Last week I saw Heather provided the lap dance and let all the low life guys lick her nipples. At first I wanted to try but after seeing all the dirty things i just wanted to throw up. I didn’t want to go there this week.

          1. I’m gonna take some sanitary wipes and clean her nipples for her. Lol.

          1. low life or high life… doesn’t matter! imagine 20 guys sucking on the same tit! nasty!

    2. Jin, who was performing lap dance yesterday at NE? I still like to see Heather performing lap dance.

    1. Froggy, i am in NE now. I guess i missed all the funs. Can you describe what i have missed? Is it worth to come and wait from noon to 2:00pm next week?

      1. Truc, do you have $500? Heather will perform everything private for you. That way you don’t miss anything. And the good thing is you can have her take shower before you lick anything on her body. Make sure you wear condom because she may be with many man before you.

          1. Really. I don’t might to pay $500 but I just don’t know to ask. If I don’t ask her in a right way she might kick me out of the coffee shop. When did you take her out? May I know?

          2. Does she advertise or did it come up in conversation with her? I’m not doubting it for sure, she’s pretty wild.

          3. How many time do you have to go out with her before she let you fk her for $500?

          4. Dude if it’s costing $500 it’s not an actual “date”. Most likely a one-time deal unless you fork out another $500.

          5. truc, its a one time fk. i’m not putting out another 500 to fk her. way to much. Just start talking to her. she does side business once she knows and is comfortable with you.

  6. I am going to NE now. People said the girls only perform nuke dance and lap dance between noon to 2:00pm. They will let you lick their nipples with $5 tip. I recommend you guys bring your mouth wash after you lick.

    1. I wouldn’t lick their nipples after many low life licked. I don’t want to lick all the germs. I didn’t see those girls clean their nipples after each lick. I felt really sorry for their boyfriends. Their boyfriend will be the one cleaning all the germs with his mouth.

          1. no, it cost me $500 to fk heather but I agree, these coffee girls are cheap sluts… you could get a cheap HJ (hand job) for $10.

    1. Anyone know what time at NE the girls will do the nuke dance and lap dance? I heard that on Sunday at NE used to have nuke dance and lap dance. During nuke dance and lap dance, with a small tip you can even touch her or kiss her nipple.

    1. Unless my future wifey or someone hot-n-naughty-n-nice like her is working, it always depends on how desperate (or horny) you are. Generally speaking, current EQ and NE crew are not worth the trip, IMHO.

  7. Those are you missing Angel from EQ, you’ll be happy to hear that she’s working at cafe 168 in OC. Still same old tactics to get extra tips. After work, she hangs out with an Asian dude with tattoos all over his face

  8. I’m going to EQ around 11am, any heads up
    who’s working is appreciated. Otherwise I’ll report later

      1. Now a days..they are not showing anything..any specific reason..or it is only particular days

          1. Jdog1234, you are joking right? i thought she was born a woman? man, holy shit, I’m shocked she’s a dude!

    1. Tran and instagram @luvtran yes. Luvtran commenting on this site, isn’t. Tran’s fire!!

    1. I’d switch cafes if she is working somewhere else. She is a rare gem. Hopefully she’ll be back.

  9. I had a Christmas dildo at 8 today, no one was present except the homeless guy! …and he asked for free coffee. wWhat is happening to my Cafe, I’m so sad.

  10. I have never seen Heather at NE show chim. Has anyone seen her chim before. Is it beautiful?

      1. Really! You have seen it. You are lucky boy. Do you have any hint for me time and day of the week that I may have a chance to see?

        1. Ask mamasan for a Heather happy hour show. If you’re a well tipping regular she may tip you on a time. I think Heather is only working limited days currently.

          1. Can you recommend how well should I tip her? Will she willing to show chim if you tip her well?

          2. Being a regular is just as important. I occasionally tip the mamasan as well. If you’re already recognized by the girls you’re half way there. Don’t leave $2 on the table and expect to get noticed either. They split tips so that’s insulting as far as I’m concerned.

  11. Damn. Was hoping for a coffee shop girl under my tree this morning. I’m so disappointed.

    1. Maybe you should check out the STFU and supply some useful information. Geez what’s up with the riddles.

  12. Is it gay to want to deep throat that dildo after Tran used it?

  13. Any update for NE or EQ? only two Cafe worth visiting since I cancelled my dildo show due to lack of interest.

  14. Hey guys when you get a chance go down to Orange County and check out any cafes

  15. Thanks. Spotted a “new” place on my way to work this morning. Cafe Rio on Senter by Capitol. Seems similar to Hotspot based on Yelp reveiws. Been open for about 2 months.

  16. How’s the CL tea and cafe at the old V cafe spot? Same type of spot or more along the lines of the old CQ?
