This is a very good Cafe in Xining, the best that I know -- especially for its Lattes, which surpass many from anywhere in the world! I often go there for coffee, lunch/supper, cinnamon rolls or other deserts, Italian sodas. It is now like my second office in Xining! Many different drinks available as well as bagels, subs, wraps, hamburgers, etc.

Before boarding the train from Xining to Lhasa, we went to this restaurant for food around 4 pm on 20th Sept, 2014. Our driver who picked us from the airport could not speak a word of English and he took us to this place located on the upper floors of a good looking building facing a very busy main... read more

The cafe has changed it's signboard and it's name to Urban Loft and Home. Although it's interior still says Cafe Java, and the address is 47-19 on Haiyan Road. I wonder who would visit this cafe except for tourist and travelers looking for decent cuppa coffee and a nice place to rest and relax. Beautiful place indeed.

Had several hours to kill in Xining, so went looking for a cafe to plug in and sit down. Cafe Java was an alright place to chill for a bit. Couple it with a walk around cultural park and it's a nice way to kill time.

I had so high hopes for this restaurant after reading the reviews about it, sorry to say the place did not meet my expectations. The restaurant is hard to find, first of. I was hoping for some food, but the only food they serve is a hamburger for ~48 rmb. People are talking about the great atmosphere, but I can't... More

Not easy to locate because there is no Java Cafe sign outside but once you found it you can have the best expresso coffee in Xining. They also have very good burgers.

I wish there were a place like this in Shanghai. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming; the food reasonably priced and VERY good; a variety of tea and coffee drinks. If you are in Xining and want some western food, eat here.

Cafe Java is a cozy cafe with good food and a great vibe. The burgers are great. The pancakes taste just like home. The carrot cake is excellent. They have tea, coffee, mango smoothies, dessert... It's a great place to meet with friends and enjoy a relaxed afternoon. One of their staff members, Claire, is fantastic. Cafe Java is highly... More

This café is clean, and the staff is nice. They serve breakfast all day, so I had some buckwheat pancakes, scrambled eggs, and beef sausage for lunch, which is hard to find in China. My g/f had the spicy beef Mexican burritos/wraps. It was all good, and we enjoyed it here. Good wifi, and comfortable seating.

Ask any taxi driver for "Wen Hua Gong Yuan" - which means "Culture Park" and you'll find Cafe Java on the South side of the street with a large White sign board above. Great free Wifi in a relaxing environment with a music playlist that covers everything from Country to Blues to just about anything else you can imagine! Try... More
