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. Guys if you want a good time and get your dick grabbed come find Cindy her real name is huong

      1. There was a gal that used to stroke me under the table occasionally. Take a guess who

  2. Buddy – get a life! You are obviously way too deep into these entertainers.

          1. Her real name? The photos under Alessica Tee are really old. 😉

      1. She was working there today. First time I’ve seen her. She looks stunning! She said she’ll be back Saturday.

    1. I feel bad for Alina because she’s been out of the game for so long. I mean she looks great and everything after kids, but sad that she’s back. Becca and Alina both at EQ reminds me of when they both started – skinny and stacked. I wonder if Alina’s ex isn’t providing for her to stay out of cafes.

      1. If you read the posts, seems like Ducky Lips is the only one that’s not a team player.

          1. I saw Nina twice awhile ago, one time Bikini only, one time TL only. Is she still work there?

    1. Is this the old Kim from Fantasy Cafe and only prefer talking with young white men?

  3. Cindy (duck lips) and kim UGLY where the Pretty YOUNG girls ? Eq going down …

      1. She reminds me of older Asian lady named Cam who used to work at NE, always in bikini not showing but still get good day schedule. Maybe Cindy is some how related to boss lady?

  4. They should bring back Heather at NE. She was the reason I go to NE. Without her, I only go to EQ.

    1. Heather should join EQ and become a team player there. She will be a great addition to the EQ staff.

    2. Natalie at NE is cute but seems greedy. Was BL but didn’t wanna do TL without significant HT. Sad. Jessica was sporting TL and BL and being awesome

  5. Saw Arianne at NE earlier in the week – gorgeous young white girl with top and bottom out. Absolutely the best tits I’ve seen on a coffee girl in some time – great attitude – was going around all the tables giving hugs and collecting handtips. Saw her make about $50 in about 20 mins. Anyone know what her deal is? The other 2 (older Asian lady) and younger Latina with big tits were both jealous.

    1. What day does she work? Morning or afternoon?

      Sounds like a great addition, it’s usually 2 old Asians when I make it there.

      1. Is Arianna a little on the chunky side sporting a few tats? I think Jessica’s super long nips are still hotter

        1. no that Alyssa. Arriana is hotter than her sister. Jessica and Thao old milf that I would not like to FK.

        2. Mess is right. Alyssa is the chunky Latina but with awesome big top and tats. Is a little shy, doesn’t like the guys grabbing her bottom. Arianne has not problems giving close hugs and letting the guys grope top and bottom. She’s really slim with perfect perky top. Is she really Alyssa’s sister?

          1. Does she let you grope bottom extensively or just surface?what days and times are her usual shifts?

    1. Becca and Alina at EQ both team players – it’s like it’s 2014 all over again. I preferred them a decade younger, but hey, it’s still pretty good. Alina still looks smoking hot.

      1. There was a server named Cindy many years ago at NE. She also went by Thuy Loc. is that the same Cindy working at EM today ?? She was a top 5 all time

          1. Is Cindy hall of fame level?
            There only room for 10. I think I’ll drop Cindy and put Angel in, unless most of you think Cindy deserves that spot.

  6. 1. Alina
    2. Mel
    3. Lilly
    4. Be’na
    5. Lynn
    6. Boss lady
    7. Kitchen lady
    8. Cindy
    9. Becca
    10. Gynn

    That’s why EQ is #1.

    1. Be’na’s pics are all over the internet, but never got to see her live. When was she at EQ?

          1. Angel should be on that list. Also Jenny maybe, the prettiest gal that worked at NE and EQ.

    2. Girls that still work coffee: Alina, Lilly, boss lady, kitchen lady, Cindy, Becca.

  7. Can anyone name the EQ hall of fame girls?
    1. Alina
    2. Mel
    3. Cindy
    Who else?

    1. Don’t forget Marley, she only played for the team a season or two, but she was the only one who ever actually put on dance shows.

        1. Doesn’t Jessica from CQ and now working again at NE (in all her glory!!) deserve a spot? She’s still smokin

      1. Why so much debate on who’s at EQ? Is EQ posting lies on this forum to get get people in?

      1. Thanks for the report OpenTil4, appreciate it.

        Is Angel now dressing up (down) like Mel in high heels only? If yes, I gotta hike all the way to EQ asap! TIA.

        1. Sorry, Deanna. Diana hasn’t been working work a while now.

          Outfits are conservative vs skimpy, but still good coffee….

  8. Anyone knows what’s the deal with the old Asian handicap dude? Seems like he moves his seats every few minutes. I only see him weekend. Does he go on Weekdays as well?

    1. Not sure if it’s the same guy, but he’s in a wheel chair now, used to be a walker. Smells like piss. I don’t get his deal either…always in trouble for taking pics and videos, and stealing table tips…

      1. If its the same guy we’re talking about, he got kicked out of NE. Anyway, I treat him with respect, but at a distance. We’re all headed to his age one day. For now, it is our duty to ourselves to enjoy as much as possible before we get there.

    2. Same dude. I once saw him stealing tip money. This explains why he moves around seats so he can steal the tip money left by leaving customers.

  9. It looks like most of the girls are happily taken including Korean Tiffany. Anyone ever have stories of dating one?

    1. Korean Tiffany!?! The one used to work at CQ. Am I correct on that?
      Is she taken? How did you know?

        1. Don’t believe all what you hear from the girls. I heard she will be back working.

          1. Tiffany would cause a shop to get too busy drawing a crowd! I’d be there for sure.

          2. The funny thing is the last few weeks Tiffany was working before the closing of CQ. She was showing TL BL and doing things that she never did before still few people in the shop. She had a small group customers she took care of. In return took care of her. Old guys.

          3. Probably no one shared that information. I wasnt going very often before they closed unfortunately because i would love to have seen Tiffany like that. Oh well.

          4. If CQ reopens or the owner of CQ opens another shop, she will be back.

  10. Are these girls still working at EQ or left?

    -Jayden (aka Karma), -Rose, – Asian Nikki, -Tee (Tea?) – Katie, -Katlyn (Asian), Diana (older Blonde), -Nina, -Ericka,
    -Angel (Asian)

    Active girls since I visited last weekend.

    1. Thanks for posting PC lineup. If you visit PC regularly I can offer you a spot in our secret server. Email me yocogi1234 @ gmail . com

      1. I’m a regular cafe attendee. What is the secret server and what is required?

        1. Its not about being regular. Its about which shops. If you visit PC regularly send me an email.

  12. My buddies asked me to teach them about investing and give them general financial advice. I said sure, let’s meet up at Luvcafe.

    They immediately canceled the meeting.

    Can anyone explain why the meeting was canceled?

        1. Shannon has no problems with it and a fiver. But wish she would have “opened up” like petite Angel does.
