Latest Ranking – Cà Phê

Click here for Quan Nhau

Here are Mr. Nguyen’s latest rankings (12/25/2022) 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 worth going to, so I have removed those that aren’t worth being listed. The rankings reflect the cafes as a whole (girls, venue, coffee, food, service, girls, smoking/non-smoking, and girls). These are only the opinions of Mr. Nguyen, and you may not agree with them.

1. Remedy Cafe
1150 Murphy Ave. Suite C
San Jose, CA
Remedy is located in San Jose 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. Rosanna 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, Rosanna 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-three waitresses working, and their waitresses are top notch. They are extremely friendly and have been known to sit down and chit chat. Typical attire includes lingerie or bikini. Coffee is $7/cup. You can visit their Instagram site to get updates on who’s working.

2. Paradise Cafe
2400 Monterey Rd.
San Jose, CA 95111
Paradise remains #2 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. 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. It’s a good place to come in the evening to hang out also. I believe this is the only remaining SJ coffee shop with $6 coffee.

3. Luv Cafe
2444 Alvin Ave.
San Jose, CA 95121
Luv Café has been around for a couple years now. Tran (aka LuvTran) has taken over the former Dream Café, renovated, and rebranded to create Luv Café. This café has improved greatly on the previous shop by hiring some of the best girls to serve coffee. Their staff is extremely friendly and easy to talk to. Tran actually envisioned a Vietnamese coffee shop where the girls make an effort to talk and get to know their patrons. This café is strictly lingerie/bikini. There are plenty of HD TVs to watch your favorite soccer matches or football games. With the recent World Cup, she refreshed her TVs, so now there’s a giant 6 screen wall TV for sports enjoyment. Coffee is $8/cup.

4. 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. 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 on who is working.

5. Fantasy Café
1040 McLaughlin Ave
San Jose, CA 95122
Fantasy Café (formerly CN1) is a classic Vietnamese coffee shop to go to. I decided to move it up because it’s actually been pretty good lately. 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. Fantasy closes at 9PM.

6.  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.  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. Coffee is $8/cup.  The shop closes around 5PM.

7. DV Cafe
1947 Tully Road
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 $8/cup. This place closes at 5PM.

8.  Palm Café
1969 Tully Rd. San Jose, CA 95122
Palm 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.

9.  Nguyen Espresso
1659 Tully Rd.
San Jose, CA 95122
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 $8/cup.

  1. Six today…. Rebecca, Angie , Lina, Ngoc Anh, Violet, Cindy and viet Angel. Cindy in boring outfit, Violet top only. Angel all out! Rest in front open Ao Dai only, that I like too.

    Tomorrow thru Thursday should be even more interesting with someone visiting as a special guest. Let’s not jinx it hehe.

  2. Timmy seems to be censoring some comments.
    Like mine. not cool.

  3. Looks kinda like Bella with Braces. Small but real titties. No HH when I was there (who needs it when they are in Ao Dai). Just top, no bottom. Violet can really shake her booty.

  4. You mean Violet in Mel outfit all the time like Mel or just in Happy Hours? How does she compare in looks? TIA, and I will report when I go there next.

  5. New girl Violet is worth the trip- Mel views plus allows hands on spread for even a better view

  6. EQ on Lunar new year eve 1/21 : ao dai traditional dress with only Cindy has an additional string thong. 5 girls , Rebecca , angie , lina, ngoc anh , worth visiting.

  7. If EQ has Alina, Mel, Lilly and gabby on the same shift for a month, all the coffee shops in the area will go out of business.

  8. I see why people like DV. I went there for the first time today and got a smoothie. The outfits weee nice and Jayden was pretty fly.

  9. is it worth going? seems like they’ll be covered up more than usual

  10. Weird stuff happening on these comments. Why do some comments disappear completely?

  11. I just left paradise. The girls are spending 1-2 min talking to customers. A girl sat at my table to talk to me. Didn’t catch her name.

    I’m heading to Fantasy now. I heard Kim and missy are there. The other forum is gonna vote Kim into the hall of fame. Gonna check her out before I cast my vote. Kim is ranked higher than Alina.

  12. DV, Dong & Vee in comfys, Sarah and Mary, Jayden expected later…

  13. Just got to EQ, getting packed. All girls are in ao dai today
    Becca, Cindy, Lina & Ngoc

  14. I’d bring back gynn, she was a Hmong model. Very hot. And Lilly, she had that bitch face.

    People don’t like Cindy because her face looks like a plastic surgeon messed it up.

  15. Looked through older posts and got the 4th one’s name. Its Natalie.

  16. NE 4 latinas
    new girls miliana and em. Regulars Mara + her petite slim sexy latina friend whose name I forget (joined same time as Mara). New boss lady too.

  17. Cindy’s got some enemy here on this forum. She’s always been cool with me, pretty much like most of the other coffee girls. She might not be my top 1 or 2, but her behavior and looks are definitely better than average
    Anytime her name comes up in the past few months, there’s one guy here that keeps attacking her in multiple ways. Like fucking relentless.
    What exactly pissed you off, buddy?

  18. I would bring anybody back to replace Cindy. Tranny looking girls don’t cut it for me.

  19. Any updates on the current girls working at EQ?

    Found some of the ogs on Instagram.. miss those days.. who would you guys bring back?

  20. Any updates on the current girls at EQ?

    Found some of the ogs on Instagram.. miss those days.. who would you guys bring back?

  22. EQ: Cindy, Ngoc, and a tatted one (didn’t catch her name)

  23. NE: 2pm – 2 new hispanic girls … not to my liking. is Arianna still here?
