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

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.

We were two couples, and had found lots of coffee places in Guilin were so so or used sticky condensed milk, yuk! Also everyone was smoking. Here was really a breath of fresh air! It was perfect, we had the afternoon tea which was American coffee and a brown or cheese cake which were both homemade and lovely. The 100... More

Sick of having inconsiderate people blowing their cancerous smoke over your food while trying to eat, so it was a breath of fresh air to find Cae Nissi and its no smoking policy. Sadly, it was on our last day in Guilin. Only had coffee, but the owner and staff were friendly and chatty
