Found this great little cafe today and actually settled on iced coffee specialities with cheesecake and waffle alongside . Plenty of ambiance like a quiet reading room with style. We stayed inside to appreciate the atmosphere and air conditioning but there are outdoor tables in front and back of cafe. Pleasant wait staff and a committed coffee loving barista. Recommend...

Our wonderful private guide Lilly Lu took us to the really cute little French cafe on the River Walk. The coffee was superb as was their iced coffee, the chocolate waffles warm & freshly made to order with yummy ice cream. It's non smoking with clean western style restrooms. The decor is cute with big picturesque windows.

I know one shouldn't expect a decent cappuccino in China..after all, it's all about tea. But since I am a coffee addict, I was so glad to find this pleasant small place. The coffee is simply out of this world and the waffles are also delicious. Their tiny outside deck is perfect for people watching, too. Highly recommended !

Found this cute little French cafe on the River Walk. The cappuccino was really nice, the chocolate waffles warm & made to order. It has a fireplace (well sort of) no smoking environment & clean western style restrooms. The decor is nice with big picturesque windows & lots of locals chilling out on a rainy day.

A total utopia in the heart of the bustle of Chinese culture. A almost french feeling escape to some truly masterful coffee and deserts. If you go you have gotta get the Green Tea Mocha and Tiramisu

I stumbled on this place while walking around in Yangshuo. After almost two weeks without coffee (tried to stick to Chinese tea), I caved and decided to go for a cappuccino. The place is decorated to resemble and old school European coffeehouse, and it manages to pull it off very well. It has comfy chairs, pretty china cups and a... More

The sign outside proudly says 'The Best Coffee', quite a claim, but after trying a cappuccino at MingYuan I would have to agree! I have lived in China for the past two years and that cappuccino may have been the best I have had in China, worth the fairly pricey 30RMB.

If you want a place to relax after a long day of walking, this is your place to be. Amazing coffee, cool music and a good decoration makes this coffee shop a must in Yangshuo.

Saw the pictures of the coffee animals and decided we had to see it for ourselves. The coffee was excellent and the desserts were good too. There are a few tables outside which are really nice for relaxing and watching people walk by.

It is generally hard to find a real good café in Asia and in China - almost like to find a Polar Bear in the Sahara. However, Ming Yuan in Yangshuo is one of those unique places you'd never to leave ionce you'v entered the place: Cosy atmosphere, sympathetic people - both staff/waiters and guests - and excellent coffee for...
