This café is exquisite, due to its originality in ambiance and interior decoration - especially notable since it is an independently owned company. Located in close vicinity to the Middle Street Shopping Centre, the key element here is courtesy, highlighted by greetings from a host who will also open the door.
The first floor explodes with a lavish coffee bar and a beautiful white grand piano, perched on a floating glass platform adjacent to a curved staircase. All floors have beautiful marble tables with soft sofas and magazine racks.
The dimly lit interior gives a serene feeling of comfort during the evening hours. If you decide to journey up to the second floor, expect a choice of seating beside the front glass wall with a view of outside, or in a private booth. Throughout the café, there are well-situated aquariums loaded with tiny colourful fish.
The menu is impeccable, with a variety of dishes to choose from. Ji Dian serves Western style breakfast with a selection of eggs - any style available - and meats such as sausages and bacon, along with great tasting garlic bread.
And don't forget the coffee. This café has a great selection of coffees, such as café latte with a swirl of chocolate syrup, café mocha, espresso, and black coffee.
Lunch is treated with equal respect, unleashing a selection of pizzas with endless Western toppings. Since many expats are carnivorous, there is also a great mix of steaks like T-bone, sirloin, rib eye and pork chops, cooked at whatever degree you fancy.
Never pass up dinner in this café. Appetisers explode with aroma and taste, with main entrees of vegetables, meat, and seafood. Desserts such as cake and ice cream are mouth-watering and their beverages range from fruit-flavoured milk teas and herbal teas, to freshly squeezed natural juices.
Casual strollers, families, and executives are all welcomed at Ji Dian Café, and will love to take advantage of its food, desktop computers with Internet access, free Wi-Fi, and delightful service.
