“Great coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

I as a little concerned when we arrived there, not much coffee paraphernalia in sight but they delivered very nice coffees. It's a refuge from the bustle of the Muslim quarter and very near the Mosque entrance.

“Welcome refuge with decent coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

The location near the mosque and muslim quarter is great, the coffee was good and Jessica's helpfulness with travel advice was welcomed. Also appreciated were the complimentary Chinese shortbread-like treats! If you visit in summer the air conditioning and iced coffee varieties a great tonic.

“Interesting combination of coffee and tea house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

the good: it's just next to the mosque and the bazaar, if you want to escape the crowds. The place is quiet, clean with friendly staff who speak good english and Chinese and can give you all sorts of cultural advice (from tea to history facts).

the bad: maybe it was a single case, but I got my espresso in a cold cup (which made the espresso cold, while it should be drank hot). They didn't quite understand, however they immediately offered to make me a new one.

“Not a CAFE, If you want coffee & advice, good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We read all the good reviews so decided to give this CAFE a try.
It seems to me this small coffee shop gets good ratings from westerners who enjoy the company of those who have good comprehension skills, offer local tourist advice when asked & stock good coffee's & tea.
I didn't see any evidence of any real food or a menu, but I was offered Haggen Daz ice cream bars from the freezer.
Jessica was very amiable & friendly.

“Quality coffee? Excellent local tea? Generous and caring service? This is the place to come in Xian!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

The hustle and bustle of the Muslim Quarter is a must when visiting Xian, and so is a visit to Jessica Lee's Lavazza Cafe and Tea House, just left of the Mosque as you exit it. As well as quality tea, coffee and free wifi, you are in excellent and caring hands with the owner (a former tour guide)- Jessica. As well as being a friendly face she was a great resource, helping us to find antiques, TCM clinics, and anything else we needed help with. Support Jessica and find a welcoming home away from home while in Xian!
