Cosy on a rainy day

Bumped into Cafe de Jack after walking through rainy Dali. The fireplace provides a nice warm break even though it's mid July. Yunnan coffee is nice and a pot is quite economical if you like to drink more than one cup. Kids enjoyed the burgers. Apple pie is quite different from the expected... read more

Visited Cafe de Jack on our last day in Dali - great English and American breakfasts! Jack also does an awesome milkshake too. Good atmosphere. Good cooking. Really relaxing place to watch the world go by. Has an English menu if you need it. We loved it.

the beers are ok with a fair price. the food is as good (or bad) as many other western restaurants in town, i would suggest unless you are really starving for Western food... just go for a local Chinese stuff and get your dinner.

Seating is nice and decor equally pleasing. Service was good......but the menu was not. The food we ordered was unpalatable and we left most of it on the plate. The actual dishes served do not equate to what is offered on the menu (e.g items missing etc). If the food was half the price then I could see how they... More

If you've ever wondered what it'd be like to eat in an ashtray, you'll want to eat here. Otherwise, skip it. Bad service, bad food, horrid stench. I regret not leaving immediately.

Friendly place with decent food. Lasagna was nice and filling. Sweet and sour pork, however, has nothing but the meat and a very sticky and sweet sauce. Comfortable atmosphere.

Great staff great atmosphere ... Lovely view from the 2 nd floor. Coffee and food are very good and reasonable... I really enjoy the fried curried rice with egg on top... I eat this almost every time I am here. Macchiato is good and done properly. The staff is very helpful and friendly... In colder monthes they have a nice... More

This cafe is good for its fireplace and peaceful atmosphere, but the staff are really useless. The pasta was filled with spicy sauce (even though it wasn't supposed to be spicy). The computers there were pretty slow. The food was also pretty pricey. This place is only good if you need a coffee break.

We visited Cafe de Jack for breakfast one morning after seeing the restaurant the night before and commenting on its cozy atmosphere. I think perhaps this is the kind of place one may want to go for dinner or for a beer, but based on our experience, we would not recommend the breakfast. We arrived at Cafe de Jack rather... More
