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. Don’t bother going to LuvCafe! Place sucks and will be out of business soon.

    1. Is there anywhere other than EQ and NE worth visiting? Any other HHs in San Jose?

  2. I just finished jerking off to Tina. It felt better than jerking off to Tran.

    I’ll post a cum tribute to Tina soon.

        1. No harm, no foul. As long as it is accurate information about whether or not she is working, I don’t think most people will mind.

  3. Slipped a 5$ to dishwasher and got to understand DISHPAN HANDS if you know what I mean.

  4. Are there any spinners at EQ or NE?
    What’s story with Angel? She’s here for a while and gone again…I would be at EQ every day if Angel and Nikki were serving!

    1. I second that motion made byChuck 🙂 Who is working EQ and NE as well?
      Don’t take politics too seriously or demonize folks you disagree with. Come on down and have a good time, buddy 🙂

    How do we know you’re not one of the jealous co workers who’s trying to make tina look bad hmm???
    Is tina working today ? Tomorrow ? I want to Buy the nude calendar

  6. Damn.. funny to me tina from eq is the one apparently writing her own comments….shame shame shame.

    1. She doesn’t know about this blog or she would not work here. You all bunch of animals

      1. The girls go there and work for money and they go home go to their kids/bf/families
        Mels case; sugar daddy in Vegas. I wish I was her sugar daddy 🙂
        Show some respect to the ladies they wake up early put on makeup and get pretty to serve us coffee
        Why hate ?

  7. NE, with Lisa, Janet and others IDK was/is hands down soooooo much better than EQ today! 🙂

        1. How much skin does she show? She had the pink top covering her DDs in the morning. Does she wear thongs or covers up her ass?

          1. Is she working tomorrow? I thought they only play scene of a woman at NE.

      1. For the curious fellas.
        Tina actually worked EQ 10 years ago fellas when she always 15,16? I’m sure i saw her.
        She focused on her modeling career and race cars building with her ex husband, she just got a divorce and extra time on her hand so she’s back at EQ for fun. Her main job is still modeling I believe because she was at Sema and in La every other weekend for car events. YouTube and on music videos as a video vixen.
        She is like those suicidal model with tattoos and big butt. Very very juicy butt LMFAO 34DD BUST
        OK gots to go work. Visit EQ LATER.

        1. So lame how all these people are advertising for her LOL y’all a bunch of horny losers getting y’all money robbed

    1. Who is working EQ besides Tina? NE?

      This boy wishes the ladies would’t ink up beautiful skin. Bring back Hong (Houng?, Cindy).

  8. Where is Admin? He need to update the EQ list and add new member Tina and add Luv cafe to the list so the fellas know what’s up.

  9. Is luv and EQ the two best places to checkout? People on here compare them together a lot.

    1. EQ

      Others not worth visiting regularly unless there is particular girl that interests you but definitely go ahead and check the others places out.

    2. NE and EQ are the best to go. It’s probably those suicide tattoo girls from Luv that’s posting about Luv because they have few or no customers. LOL.

  10. Dropped Garden Grove cafes briefly. A lot of team players and plenty of places to sit.

        1. I’m sure I saw tina 10 years ago lol at EQ
          She works here and there but now back permanently- I was told by boss lady and herself

  11. How do you fellas hate on Tina when Luv girls are even worst? Cheap tattoos cheap Attitude and service isn’t there. EQ remain on top in my book !

    1. Luv girls are actually nice. They’re not like EQ girls yes, they don’t pretend to like u the way EQ girls do for your money. Sorry if it’s regular service but don’t be talking shit when their tattoo probably cost more than your wardrobe.

      1. That’s why Luv isn’t number 1. Deeznuts you sounds stupid actually.
        Tattoos are art yes. Some might like some might not.
        EQ girls are super sweet IMO. Don’t put down certain girls because you can’t afford to F them

  12. Wifey Tina for sure works every Monday 8-1
    I really like the way she look at me and smile I’m ready to give her my soul

  13. EQ: Alina, Michelle, and Quyen. Boss lady rolls up her sleeves and serves the patrons as well; such a team player.

    1. Come on Boss, that’s not what team player means. Great that she was giving a hand when it was too busy, but I don’t think any of the ninjas here have ever seen or will see boss lady being real team player like Alina or Tina or Mel. 🙂

      1. I saw her nipples when she wore low cut and she bent down behind the counter. That was a Christmas miracle

        1. @Froggy, was it pink/brown/or sometimes black? My guess is brownish. Thanks for sharing.

        1. The highlight of my visit is when Quyen comes out from the counter and direct traffics.

    1. They all looks like coke addicts
      SOME used to strip at BBOSS & playalounge IMO Worse tattoos girls than our EQ new fame Tina & Deanna . Blehhhh ! I prefer tina If I want to see tatted chicks

    1. Please let me know when she get in
      Anxious to see her since the first day.
      Back from China trip finally


        That’s at EQ haha
        You can hear NAM say order dùm chi
        But besides the point I think tina getting fans from EQ is because her personality is nice as well. She’s actually down to earth and very sweet
        She got points from me when she doesn’t act like she’s famous or brag about her big followings on social medias. We had some conversation here and there and I even tested her when I said my cousin is a model as well with 70k followers. She just smiled and said wow that’s so cool.
        First time met; group of my guys teased her.
        She teased back. She told us she took the bus to work and joked around when I asked about her car outside.
        She is okay in my book
        I can look past the tattoos. Who cares.

  14. Saw tina first time today. She’s pretty and friendly too
    Pierced chim.
    Hardest working girl there besides Mel, fast & walked around a lot. kept filling up my tea, I told her I drove from Oakland today to meet her so she hugged me so tight and put her Vú in my face
    Is that cheating on my GF? Lol
    I saw Mel today too but she quickly left after ;(

    1. Yea tina getting really popular – guys like her because she smile even if they’re sad lol
      Put bad mood dudes into a happy horny mood
      Mel and Tina works very well together

          1. I don’t like so much bottom heavy, not really balanced body for my taste,it’s just me. On a different news, Luv and Fantasy both were much pleasing to my eyes. I think only Mel can compete with Tran and Vivian in terms of beauty and body.

        1. Tina and Mel are sweet and fun together. Been skipping NE.

          I’ve been going to Luv,like couple of the gals there

          1. NE sucks! Everytime I go there I see thao. where are the other girls???

    1. This is the bitch’s children who work as a hooker . Day la hai thu suc vat cua con dy cho lo chuyen bao dong . Khong hieu sao hai thu suc vat nay den cuoc doi nay lam gi lam hoi thoi trai dat . Don’t know why these animals even exist to make the earth more dirty .

    1. Money is the only reason that makes me go to work everyday and nothing else is matter. Vi dong tien minh phai day di lam de cho ban than Duoc sung suong .

    2. No Tina today but
      She’s working tomorrow
      She’s getting a lot of love lately cuz she is sweet and get along with Mel quiet well too
      I love them together IMHO she’s chill

          1. Cha me c sinh ra chi nhung k sinh ra nao c ha ? Lam on de phuoc cho con cai dung co di tao nghiep. Thay uc che qua ko lam dc gi vo fb ngta an cap hinh roi di beu xau ngkhac.

  15. EQ f****king busyyyyyy a place to be today :))) tina leaving and now I am happy and can go home to FFFFF my wife. Chiệu không nổi bé tina dâm quá

    1. I must have just missed out this morning 🙁 should have gone to EQ first instead of NE.

      NE – Lisa, Thao, and I think Janet. First time I’ve gone on the AM without drama

      1. I notice if you’re a regular tip the girls 40$-50$ they let you touch by the cashier. Boss ok with it.

          1. EQ mainly Mel Tina Alina & Jessica
            I wouldn’t touch Erika if she’s underage

        1. Yeesh. The ladies are hot but I can get FS for $80 -120. I’m out.
          ┌( >_<)┘

        2. I have only seen that happen to one guy. Ever time he comes in he sets behind the counter. The girls are all over him like he is famous or something. I have seen him for many years doing it.

          1. Deanna drinking alcohol at work unprofessional She looked mad.. and jelly

          2. Mmmm. They resist less when they’re intoxicated.

  16. All Paradise, LUV & EQ girls should sell nude posters and calendars like tina is doing. She had one with cafe Lú and now she branched our to release her own.
