Stopped by here during our day trip in Dali old town. Very relaxed vibe, and great for people watching. The staff are super friendly, and they have an English menu. The home made cakes and freshly squeezed juice were great, and the coffee hit the spot. They have a great variety to choose from.
If you are passing this cafe, take some time to sit and enjoy the surroundings, and the food too. Such a lovely place to relax and chat with friends.

Perfect place to get some good coffee, I would recommend the Yunnan coffee for coffee lovers. Just make sure you go there on a sunny day.

The Elepahnt Coffee has a nice interior, which is warm and you can enjoy your time while drinking a excellent Illy Coffee and eat very good handmade cake. Outside it is also nice to stay and enjoy the sun or sit comfortable under an ambralla. The people who runs this coffee are very friendly and give you a good service.

Off the Dali main streets but still in old city is this great little cafe. Nice quiet outdoor seating.... As a expat living in Dali .... I love the quietness ... Don't get me wrong, it is busy and seating limited.
Love the cakes .... With good device and a good cappuccino. I love going here in a almost dali basis.

The French cheese cake and Yunnan coffee is sooo good that I went back twice and ordered the exact same combo. The cheese cake's crust has a honeycomb aftertaste that is to die for. This is seriously the best cheese cake I have ever eaten in my life. No joke.

If you're lucky enough to grab the nice little nook with a Mediterranean white wash stone by the window, you can doggie or people watch on a lazy afternoon in Dali. But there's only one spot like this. Otherwise, you can always sit outside.

I particularly enjoyed the cute ceramic dishes and cups that the food is served on as well as watching the neighboring cafe's golden retriever.
