MeiMei is a friendly and comfortable western-style cafe, in a beautiful location, with reasonable prices and friendly service. That alone earns 4 stars. Then you meet the owner: a weathered expat with a mysterious accent (not French, is he Swiss?), a thousand stories from pre-development Xishuangbanna, and some priceless back-country knowledge. Despite the fact that his business sells hiking tours,... More

This place is wonderfull! Even before the food - they've got some awesome info about what to do & where to go in Xishuangbana. All in English. Plus contacts with a great guide, plus they set you up with English notes for local buses or taxies. And we spent there more than a few days just chilling with beers, mojitos,... More

If you wish to take a break from local food and want to enjoy good coffee with cake - this is the place for you. An 'island' of European culture and European style of relaxed cafe (which is much better than an American style Starbucks).

Being new to Jinghong, I was looking for a new place to find good western food for a break from my normal Chinese /Yunnan fare. I was comparing Meimei with the Mekong, 2 doors away, using my standard Cheeseburger Test. The outside environment was very nice but the local young men who were hanging out created a negative atmosphere while... More

We really enjoyed the terrace of MeiMei Cafe, it is centrally located and a great place to catch your breath while visiting Xishuangbanna. Like most of the restaurants on that part of the street, menu items are quite pricey but we enjoyed the large drink menu. The food menu didn't look that appealing to us compared to what's around.

We enjoyed most of our meal. Vegetables cooked beautifully not too salty but the noodles were over cooked and not spicy like we asked. Cold beer with chilled glass and fresh water topped up regularly. Good service great location prices are competitive.

It was a happy relief to find this place after several mediocre local meals in Chinese restaurants. The southwestern cuisine is generally to spicy for us, and there is a lot of noodles and hot pot, which we don't enjoy as much as the locals do. So good old Western food, made well, was fun.
