Cup O’ Joe: Zhuhai’s Best Local Coffee Houses

Cup O’ Joe: Zhuhai’s Best Local Coffee Houses

Zhuhai's romantic seaside and urban landscape make this city the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing cup of coffee. Of course, branches of popular international and domestic chains such as Starbucks (星巴克), UBC Coffee (上岛咖啡) and Ming Tian (名典咖啡语茶) are quite ubiquitous and can be found pretty much anywhere around town. But if you're looking for a more local option, check out one of these smaller, lesser known cafés for a great cup o' Joe.

1) US CaféView In Map
US Café (优仕会) might just be Zhuhai's most modern and fashionable café. Here you'll find upscale coffee and alcoholic drinks, not to mention a runway showcasing some of the latest fashions. Piano performances and hip music add a classy and romantic touch. With a flavourful cup of coffee, you're sure to enjoy your time relaxing at this happening spot. Also, you can't go wrong ordering a piece of the soft and delicious Italian cheesecake that just melts in your mouth. Or if you don't have much of a sweet tooth, try one of the other tasty snacks, such as the mushroom and chicken congee, chicken wings, gold and sweet potato balls, American French fries, Taiwanese sausage or mango pudding.

2) Jack & Magic Pea Café (Jiuzhou Dadao Branch)View In Map
Jack & Magic Pea (杰克魔豆咖啡生活馆) has various branches throughout Zhuhai, but the one at Jiuzhou Dadao is especially welcoming. The atmosphere here is very quiet—perfect for those wishing to grab a fresh brew and do some web surfing or for those who are just hoping to sit down and enjoy a snack in peace. The food in this café, while not exceptionally memorable, is good if you're just looking for a quick snack on a quiet afternoon. Highlights include the green tea cake and pudding milk tea. This café is a bit of a difficult find since it is in a residential area, but is still worth seeking out.

3) Pandora (Guangkou Branch)View In Map
The Pandora Coffee in Guangkou (潘朵拉城市行动咖啡店), a branch off from Jack and Magic Pea, was one of the first coffee shops to open in Zhuhai. Pandora offers both take-out and dine-in service, not to mention a medium-sized cup of coffee for the fabulously low price of 10 RMB! Fancier drinks won't break the bank either; a medium cappuccino is 12 RMB and a medium caramel macchiato is only 15 RMB. The scent of freshly ground beans that permeates the air and the relaxing atmosphere are sure to make your day, especially after a long day spent traversing Zhuhai's crowded streets. The service here is excellent, and the service staff is not pushy at all, meaning that this is a great place to come hang out for the afternoon. Some of the most delicious drinks and desserts to be found here include: the red bean milk tea, iced green tea and the cheesecake.
