Nice place but the cafe was bad. I didn 't eat here. But it's a nice place to chill. Only 3 points because the the promised wlan doesn`t exist.

This corner bar is relaxed and offers cheap drinks and snacks. Grab a table at the front and watch the world go by as you enjoy a drink. The fried peanuts were great.

I was pleased to find this cafe as I had been walking around for ages dripping with sweat and desperate for s sit down. They are quite accommodating giving me a power supply for my laptop and the food and beer were OK. There's nothing wrong with this cafe, but nothing to shout about either.

Given that the kitchen here is slightly bigger than two phone boxes. It's surprising and to be commended on what they actually produce here. Their menu is less diverse, western wise, from the two big hitters on the street but what you get is very good. It's also manages to be the best for value for many things, including beer... More

This little corner street cafe is the perfect spot to enjoy a coffee and muesli breakfast, while sitting back and watching Jinghong's lively street life. The friendly young staff are a lot of fun, and the tunes are always good.

This is a cramped little cafe that must struggle to compete with Mei Mei and Mekong. The food was okay, but the veggie burger is just a salad sandwich. The kitchen appears to be far too small to effectively deliver the rather ambitious menu. Would be better as a smoothie bar that does alcoholic drinks at night.
