Great little coffee shop

Found this cute little French cafe on the River Walk. The cappuccino was really nice, the chocolate waffles warm & made to order. It has a fireplace (well sort of) no smoking environment & clean western style restrooms. The decor is nice with big picturesque windows & lots of locals chilling out on... read more

Found this cute little French cafe on the River Walk. The cappuccino was really nice, the chocolate waffles warm & made to order. It has a fireplace (well sort of) no smoking environment & clean western style restrooms. The decor is nice with big picturesque windows & lots of locals chilling out on a rainy day.

A total utopia in the heart of the bustle of Chinese culture. A almost french feeling escape to some truly masterful coffee and deserts. If you go you have gotta get the Green Tea Mocha and Tiramisu

I stumbled on this place while walking around in Yangshuo. After almost two weeks without coffee (tried to stick to Chinese tea), I caved and decided to go for a cappuccino. The place is decorated to resemble and old school European coffeehouse, and it manages to pull it off very well. It has comfy chairs, pretty china cups and a... More

The sign outside proudly says 'The Best Coffee', quite a claim, but after trying a cappuccino at MingYuan I would have to agree! I have lived in China for the past two years and that cappuccino may have been the best I have had in China, worth the fairly pricey 30RMB.

If you want a place to relax after a long day of walking, this is your place to be. Amazing coffee, cool music and a good decoration makes this coffee shop a must in Yangshuo.

Saw the pictures of the coffee animals and decided we had to see it for ourselves. The coffee was excellent and the desserts were good too. There are a few tables outside which are really nice for relaxing and watching people walk by.

It is generally hard to find a real good café in Asia and in China - almost like to find a Polar Bear in the Sahara. However, Ming Yuan in Yangshuo is one of those unique places you'd never to leave ionce you'v entered the place: Cosy atmosphere, sympathetic people - both staff/waiters and guests - and excellent coffee for...

I went to Cafe Mingyuan to try. Ordered cold Green Tea Mocha around 40RMB. It was good, very well presented. I was expecting the size of a Grande Starbucks. The drink came in a nice blue glass but a far cry from Grande size. However, the place is very relaxing. Tasteful music were played, very jazzy ambient. If you want... More

Good coffee, but on our visit for an afternoon tea, there was no cakes, but they did make a very nice ice cream. Service was good and helpful and doesnt a smile on the waitresses face make a difference to a place.
