Lovely spot for a beverage, a natter and some people watching

We sat on the little veranda. Only ever had drinks here but they are good value and the staff are very friendly. Last visit they had just baked some rolls and came round offering them to guests (not for free, but for next to nothing).

This cafe is operated by a Hong Kong people who knows an excellent service standard. There are several similar cafes along Binjiang Road but I recommend Nissi because it is larger than other cafes and offers very delicious cafe and snacks. There is ourside space with shelter & without A/C but close to the walkers. You can breath fresh air... More

While we went here for dinner, because of the very limited menu (a couple of pastas and burgers), I think this restaurant is best suited to drinks and relaxing. The drinks and cakes menu is extensive. Nissi is a great place in a great part of Guilin, on the river and so a much more picturesque and laid back atmosphere... More

Great food and service in a very comfortable environment. Perfect English spoken by all staff and particularly Gretel - the owner. We enjoyed talking with Gretel about her life in HK, Japan and Canada before choosing to set up Nissi Cafe and settle in Guilin. She is also spearheading a local charitable foundation in Guilin supporting local children. Could not... More

We were staying at the Sheraton but looking for a simple inexpensive breakfast. Cafe Nissi was perfect. Eggs, bacon, sausage, coffee, juice for two adults and three teenagers lees than $AUD40. Great service, friendly with staff speaking some English. Unfortunately only opens at 8:30am, so no good if need early start. Apparently just started in this new location, and trialling... More

I really liked this cafe. It is close to the river and I came there to have a rest and take a cup of coffee which was very delicious so I also decided to have lunch there. I tried a burger which was very good. The menue is in english which helped a lot. Highly recommendable!

Located on the same street as the Sheraton hotel, just a block away, Café Nissi is a family owned restaurant. You feel just like you were in the living room of your own home in a comfortable couch . The food is really good, we visited it twice and had spaghetti carbonara and chicken hamburgers, delicious and tasty. The owner... More

when strolling through the city of Guilin, I entered Cafe Nissi to have lunch. what a pleasant surprise. Small card (in english as well), but food of excellent quality. Staff was very efficient and friendly. Nice interior. If you want to change from traditional Chinese food, but do not want to have junk food, this is a good place to... More

Good food, excellent environment. 100% non-smoking - where else can you find such a setting in China? Service is very good, attentive but not pretentious. A nice place to relax, location also good. Particularly enjoyed the fresh passion fruit juice and creme brulee.
