“Tired feet found oasis at Lavazza Cafe Espresso”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

As has been noted the cafe is just past the entrance to the mosque if walking from the drum tower in the fabulous Muslim Quarter. The owners are very gracious. Jessica speaks English and Japanese learned to support being a tour guide so she also is a great source of local knowledge. They will book tours for you at competitive prices as well as serve great coffee. In addition they offer loose tea, cold drinks and a formal tea service to visitors. Very nice place to stop and recharge your batteries.

“Best Cappuchino On Our Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

To say it clear, we are addicted to cappuchino and espresso. So on our 2 week tour through China we had cappuchinos in Shanghai and Beijing. The really best and original Lavazza we enjoyed in Xi'an. Made wth love and absolutely worth the price. For the future we wish Jessica much success with her coffe- and teashop.
Greetings from Germany
Dirk and Angelika

“Best coffee in Xian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

Many thanks to the previous reviewer! We saw his review and after visiting the mosque followed his directions. As he says it is 10m west of the mosque and very easy to find.

The lattes were excellent, in fact probably the best we drank in China and better value than some of the other western options.

It is a comfortable place to sit and relax for a few minutes, the wifi is free, they speak English and are happy to help.

Ideal place to relax if you are visiting the mosque or the drum and bell towers.

“Best Espresso experience in China”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

On leaving the great Mosque in Xian turn left and walk 10 meters. On your right is a very neat open plan restaurant where Jessica Lee will make you an excellent espresso.This was my experience on the last day of our 2 week visit to Beijing and Xi'an.For 10 Yuan Jessica will serve up an excellent fresh Espresso and if it's not to your liking you don't have to pay!Give her your support when in Xi'an- Tea and other drinks also available.Free Wi-Fi and internet available and Jessica speaks excellent English.
