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. This fucking low life are ugly ass hell think that he can get me . He is so desperate begging me to be my boyfriend eventhough I rejected him 100 times . He is not only ugly but also poor and handicap . Fuckyour whole family . I wish you will get into a car accident .

  2. Nam is cool, she can be fun. Q-b@tch not as much. Girls are more playful when Nam is in charge!

    1. PreferNam–Q makes it all happen. No Q=no Nam. Q runs a good shop, does her best for her customers, makes $ keeping us entertained.
      Perhaps I should not have criticized Nam, which has led to disrespectful comments about her sister. Showing disrespect for the personnel is unwarranted.

    2. Agree. With coffee! Owner does her best for customers to provide good service! Don’t disrespect!

    3. Seriously. You know they talk shit about the customers right. No need to be blatant on the site but don’t have any allusions that they are your friends either. You are a mark for the owners and the girls. Don’t forget it.

  3. The wall will work. Yes, 2000 year old technology still works today. We use walls everywhere. No, digging a hole does not prove the wall doesn’t work, it proves that it does because without the wall, they don’t need to dig a hole, they can just walk over.

          1. I don’t eat meat nor seafood, I am a vaginaterian. No need to worry about cholestrol.

          1. It’s OK I’m over weight but what the hell I luv lobsters anyway…hahaha!

          2. Don’t just list them you lazy bastards. Put some effort into it. Detailed ratings! Show some commitment.

        1. Melanie has to be the hottest coffee girl of all time. In SJ at least. Never been to OC for coffee.

          1. Regarding Mel, lets not exaggerate.

            Face 9
            Cans 8.5
            A@@ 7
            Body 8
            Attitude 7

          2. On a scale if 1-10, Mel’s a 17.5–in every catagory 🙂 No exaggeration, esp attitude.

          3. I think he meant 7.5 on every scale not 17.5. That is the only way his answer could make sense. Assuming he has ever seen a women outside of a coffeshop.

  4. A friend says there’s a coffee shop girl
    that serviced him inside amp in same strip mall for $200. He says he take me there this week. Never heard of this. In SoCal I’ve had couple college gals for money but they’re more into it down there

    1. I haven’t heard of this. All massage parlors do not do this.

      Please email me when you have your story.

      1. In SoCal I’ve met some gals at 168 and starZ. You ain’t gonna walk in and find action. Take time for them to know you

        Same as up here which is even harder. I had the numbers of gals but got nowhere this year. One did go out but couldn’t close the deal. There’s one that has Better potential but idk. It’s all a game

        1. froggy, all the girls in SJ are all tease to get nice hand tips and free drinks/food. I’ve handtip several girls for a few months now and i gotten the most a hug and a touch on the ass.. that’s about it. you are not going to get anything from these girls. the girls know this is man jose.

          1. Truth. They have less competition than in LA. So they can get away with it.

          1. Sometimes you eat steak, sometimes seafoods, and sometimes veggies, lol. All are good for me, I’m piggy, haha.

  5. EQ = Melanie & Jessica making America greater again 🙂
    Stupid Nam. Boss Quyen is soo much nicer.

    1. you are such a LOSER… nam is way better than quyen! You have more fun when nam is there…

      1. Nam’s low i.q. = yours, Haha, & it led to a bad decision on her part, like your foolish postings.

        1. Coffee breaker I Don’t know the “bad decision” you’re eluding to but Nam has always been friendlier than her sister, who does seem jaded to me as well.

          1. Nam is crazy fun crazy. I avoid her she’s too physically assertiveness with me.
            Quyen is stoic unless shop is empty then she might talk. Otherwise she ignores everyone

    2. I am guessing that you may be complaining because Nam is paranoid about law enforcement now. Lately, I have noticed that the big boss is too.

      1. Gee- I wonder why? Couldn’t be because the blabbermouths on this site can’t be discrete, could it?

      2. Saw plenty of asss yesterday so don’t know what you are complaining about. Mel bends over perfectly!

    3. I respectfully disagree. Although very pretty and successful, Quyen seems super jaded, unfriendly, and over it.

        1. You guys are just so pathetic because you can’t have her. Quyen is gorgeous and a brilliant business women. Show respect.

          1. dude I can get into quyens panties anytime… all b$itchs have a price… throw money at anyone of them and they will throw their panties at you, lay down with their legs spread open.

          2. Disagree. Her business is “selling” other girls a*s not her own. She is smart though. Why should she “sell” herself when she can “sell” other idiot girls. Obviously I mean walking around around in next to nothing and not really dirty stuff. I think you get the point.

      1. Keep EQ & NE Great!

        Keep all Viet Cafes Open!

        Bring back CQ!

        I’m not into politics, but I use some of their lines.

    1. Keep america great does not mean means everyone who lives here does their part, works and doesnt live off the dam govt, aka middle class taxes.. keep jobs in america, stop with all the foreign aid and aid our own..

  6. Who’s at NE and EQ? Posted this question before…do you know who the Viet girl (tall spinner, white skin, straight and long black hair, possibly with bolt ons) was at EQ early this year? I haven’t seen her for months.

    1. MrCoffee–If you mean the big-lipped Viet who had tooth braces removed, probably early this year, that would probably be Cindy (Hong?). Love her 🙂

    1. a hug? so what… I grabbed her bare ass… do you think i can try to finger her? I think she will like it…

        1. All cafe girls have boyfriends… who cares just grab them by the puzzy. they let you do that when you are famous or have money.

    2. Keep commenting on attire and you may find yourself hugging nothing except your bare cock. Do you want law enforcement coming in to close down the shops.

    3. Keep commenting on attire and you may find yourself hugging nothing except your bare cock. Do you want law enforcement coming in to close down the shops. They might take you jokers seriously.

      1. I think coffebraker is getting upset. Breaker Are you suggesting that you can get your junk played with at the shop? Please share details!

      2. Coffebraker is a LOSER who thinks thao is beautiful maybe you think she is a BBW?
        How are the pigs going to close down the shops? based on comments written on a site? you can only get in trouble with the law with proof (you are caught in the act of violating the law) not by someone saying this or that. idiot!

        1. Haha, you’re the idiot! The pigs had left eq and ne alone for awhile since they were relatively tame these past few years. this kind of talk may bring them back. Common sense.

          1. Attire has nothing to do with being a target by LE!

            What LE is focusing on is any interaction, if any, between waitresses and customers. Interaction , in this case, means touching. When there is no touching, then everything is fine.

            LE knows the difference between a strip club and a Viet coffee shop. Both are under different category; and LE is making sure no shop crosses the line. Since nothing happens in coffee shops, no one needs to worry it.

          2. Interaction. So when I put the money in the bra and my fingers accidentally rub does that count. Or when Mel’s cans touch the back of my head does that count? How about when the owner smacks there asss?

        2. The shops know how to do business. Problems come from customers. When the crowds are out of control, then come law enforcements.

          1. For adult business in Santa Clara county, there is “no touching” rule: the girls can touch you but you can’t touch them.
            SJPD occasionally checks the shops, so play safe, guys.

          2. But, I think you still need a zoning and license to offer strip club without touching. 🙂

          3. Old Timer, then you have to pay $25 for a cup of coffee, lol.
            The law is clear but enforcement is comprehensive. But there is a limit, if people pass it again and again , then comes trouble.

        3. Haha–You would do well to pay attention to this “Loser”/”Idiot” as well as Olala & Mrlee. If you stretch a rubberband too far, what hsppens?

  7. Where is Ngoc Anh working massage now? Inbox is appreciated ..willing to share intel i have as well

    1. EQ–Heather, Thao & Drama. Lovely.
      Yes, the lady’s name is “Drama”, not some of the other names she gets called in error on this sight 🙂

  8. Any NE reports today?
    And yes I remember Tiffany, white one at least. Messed up grill but perfect everything else…

    1. Hey guys, are Alina, Mel and the crew dressing like Lilu (CQ) or Tiffany (CN) from years ago? Just say Yes or No if you can, no need to elaborate as some people misconstrue the details, but wanted to know before I drive an hour to San Jose. I will report back if/when I visit the coffee shops. Thanks in advance.

        1. Thanks Nothing! Is Alina looking same or close to how she was few years ago? Is Mel good looking face, and shapely not chubby? How goid looking are the rest of the crew? Sorry for asking too many questions. Promise I will report back if/when I drive an hour to the coffee shops. Again, no need to elaborate on the dresses, and thanks in advance.

          1. Give the girl 20 bucks and ask her for the schedule, then you will find out all the answers needed. Save a lot of time and gas, lol.

          2. Ask Quyen for specific girls schedule and don’t need to tip her. Save yourself hand tip

    1. She was working today looking so fine. She told me she’ll be working this Saturday. I see people post Cn is not worth it but Tran is definitely worth seeing.

        1. What is the price to go into the kitchen at eq? I see that happen once in a while? What are a on menu?

          1. If they know and okay with you and you got some talk and cash, figure it out by yourself

          2. I have wanted to know also. I have only seen a older white guy going in there. The girls all play with him. I ask one day was told a VIP.

          3. The waitresses don’t wash their hands afterward!

            I doubt anything happens backstage!

          4. Kitchen has camera and nobody want to get HHBJ under surveillance, right? Use your logic thinking, you know what is it.

        2. Don’t discuss attire, GoodtimeCoffee, or u might find your goodtimes over. The ladies don’t want to get into trouble. SJPD can read and might believe your comments. Thanks for the intel, Doggy.

    1. titties are on menu. big plastic ones. the girls who sport them have clam in their cooze but the a$$ is safe.

      1. I luv plastic! What do you guys prefer, plastic on the bottom or just plain old fat on the buns?

  9. So you guys can’t get laid and now trying to get happy endings from ex café girls by exchanging info?

    1. So you guys can’t get laid and now trying to get happy endings from ex café girls by exchanging info?

      1. My gf and I broke up this year and I discovered coffee shop girls , massage parlors , strippers, escorts and found they blended overlap. So yes I’ll pay for sex with any of the above. If sad to you, then it’s sad to you. I’ll keep seeing them for now till I find a regular gf.

        1. Well, let me know, I’m a white dude and I know plenty of white girls (in their late 30’s, early 40’s, maybe a few little BBW) who are into AMWF, just like me who is into Asian girls. Who knows, maybe this site can be a coffee/escort/massage/and matching all in one site. 🙂

  10. Yo all – any of yall know which coffee girls have converted into massage ho’s? I know Jessica and Ngoc Anh – anyone else?

    1. Can you tell me where ngoc anh works? The place where jessica works is closed.

      1. I didn’t get a chance to get a massage from Jessica. The story on bait and switch and ripoff scared me away. I hope she doesn’t work with Linh anymore.
        It will be nice if Jessica and Tiffany will resurface in the near future.
        If anyone has updated info on them, please share.

    2. So you guys can’t get laid and now trying to get happy endings from ex café girls by exchanging info?
