very quite place for traditional Chinese tea, it is just on the left side of the Great Mosque. Wifi is available and free, which is very convenient for a independent traveler like me.

All over the country its Chinese only, but I found this place in an European mood. A good place to have a cup of coffee.

Jessica's café offers some peaceful respite from the bustling Muslim market. It's warm in winter and cool in Summer. The coffee is good. Jessica's knowledge and advice on the various Chinese teas sold there were very helpful. I would just love to see some cakes Jessica, and it would be perfect!

As a tea drinker it was nice to find this hidden place near the Muslim mosque. The place is not fancy nor large, just simple and typical to old fashioned tea place in a hidden place.

Jessica (the owner) spoke very good english and was very knowledgeable... More

Very nice place to relax and enjoy air conditioning. The owner, Jessica, and her colleague, Helen, will make sure you feel home whether enjoying a coffee, tea or cold water. They will make sure you are not missing an essential of Xi'an. They care about where you are from and will listen to you. Very nice discussions with them. We... More

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.

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.

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...

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... More
