Great spot to stop when you need Western Breakfast or are looking for coffee. Staff is friendly and helpful, with good English speaking skills. Prices are much more reasonable than other local choices. Note that the sign is actually in English and reads "Prague Cafe". Enjoy.

I drank Vietnamese coffee. Maybe it is my fault ordering Vietnamese coffee in Yunnan. Maybe that is why coffee was awful, it wasn't tasty at all like I tasted in Vietnam but still it was very expensive :( their cake may taste good, I didn't try. But the restaurant itself was very beautiful. I reccomend if you want to cafe... More

Nice cafe situated on the river in town. Easily the best latte I've had in Yunnan. We had the museli (more like a fruit salad) and banana pancake (more like a crepe). the cakes looked delicious we didn't try them. There is also a pretty good selection of foreign language novels for exchange.

Great sandwiches with real hearty bread, a real find in Lijiang. I had a delicious ham and goat cheese sandwich. On the expensive side but similar to restaurants in the old town.

We went here to get coffee and cake and were a bit hesitant due to the high prices. But the cakes (cheesecake, 35 rbm) exceeded all our expectations. The coffee (28rbm) was also great! If you get a coffee, any cake is half price l...which makes it bearable. This place is not for a small budget which is why it... More

They have great brownies. Absolutely loved it. Their cheesecake looks really good as well. They make a nice sweet strawberry smoothie. The place is centrally located and you can watch people stroll by, take pictures, sometimes they're unaware you're in the picture too (if you sit near the window). Good spot to sit and relax.

My family and I had a nice lunch here. We ordered pizza, cheeseburger, and a waffle topped with fruit and ice cream. The interior design is nice and they have a little garden/patio in the back. It's in the heart of old town so it may not be the easiest to find.

Great small place, after strolling for some time in Lijiang looking for a good coffee place in a reasonable price, we got up one morning and decided to navigate to this little hidden pearl. And I say it's hidden because you'll pass by all other big restaurants that sell a cup of coffee or an omelet that can drain out... More
