My most favorite Coffee shop and English corner, I go to variety of corners consistently for three years but I think it's the best for me even it has changed the location recently and makes a little bit inconvenience for people coming here at the first time.

Firstly I would say the English corner is so nice because the common host, Joshua, a young American man, who lived in China for about 14 years with his family, knows Kunming better even than some local people. He got the Chinese Language & Literature master degree from Yunnan University so he can speak standard Mandarin well. Several times we talked about China's history, tradition, philosophy, culture, etc., he spoke fluent Chinese without any problem so I actually treated him as a Chinese. Besides he also can writes Chinese characters. Amazing!

In some situation his family members also joined the conversation and took the roles as hosts, his father, mother and two sisters are kind, easygoing and eligible. I'm always so glad to have a talk with them.

Besides I really appreciate to have a cup of Coffee in the shop, I always ordered a medium glass of mocha and took some cakes and muffins to my home, and sometimes when I was hungry I would like to order a pizza, coffee and pizza are their signature items. It's real delicious, oh, yummy.

I strongly recommend you to go to this coffee house and experience it together, remember the address is below, both in English and Chinese;

Hope you can enjoy it.


Great! Thanks for the response. I went several times when Think UK. Like the style, clean and relax, great coffee and pizza. Love to give a shot to the new when Im back in kunming.


I'm writing this in response to 123go's question. We purchased Chicago Coffee in August. Because of governmental regulations beyond our control, we had to change locations to continue operating. We opened on the west side of town on January 9th, 2012. Most of the staff is new.

We are slowly rebuilding our menu. We continue to offer great coffee, frappes, and coffee beans, including decaf. We currently have home made snacks and a variety of pizzas. We will be adding pasta, sandwiches, and soup in the future.


First thing you should know is that the Google map location isn't accurate. My advice, call for directions.

I finally found it on my second effort and asking many people for directions. I was rewarded with a a fairly decent pizza, an outstanding cheesecake and a Mango frappe that was delicious, thick and creamy. Wow!

Recently, they have expanded their menu and are cooking steaks, ribs and some pastas. The lasagna was my first in 1 1/2 years and while tasty, it lacked the oomph of a zestier tomato sauce.

Now for the best part - The steaks! They are tender, full of flavor and properly seasoned and cooked. I haven't had a steak in China that was worth a dime until now. This steak was fantastic! Others who have tried them agree. They use a purveyor to get tender beef and it is worth the money. A loaded, baked potato and mixed vegetables, bread sticks and glass of house red made this experience the best by far. The steaks are 5 star!

They are also serving breakfast and while I haven't tried it yet, I plan to do so soon.

Most of the employees speak English and service is very good. I only wish that they were open later than 9:00 p.m.


Chicago Coffee is probably the closest I've seen to a western-style coffee shop here in this city. It's roomy, comfortable, and seems to offer many tables for seating. The atmosphere is bright and relaxing, they use a nice choice of interior colors, and whoever selects the music that they play has great taste in music.

I tried the Hawaiian pizza and the Coffee Frappe. I had high expectations for the frappe after reading some of the reviews saying that this was truly a thick milkshake. Though it's not as thick as the In 'N' Out milkshake that I'm used to in my native California, the milkshake was fantastic. Yes, it was thick. I could taste the ice cream goodness that was just put into a blender seconds ago. My expectations were met. It was good stuff.

As for the pizza, it was not exactly the Chicago style pizza that I was thinking it would be. Regardless, I enjoyed it. I finished the entire thing and helped my friend finish some of his pizza. This place is a little bit pricey compared to other western places, but the quality is definitely there.
