Housed inside an old temple down a lively alley, the setting at Temple Cafe cannot be beat. It's very cool.

I went for lunch on a Sunday afternoon and it's worth the trek from wherever you are staying because the whole area around Temple Cafe is full of life. Plenty to see, eat and do. I'd come back for a drink, day or night, but the food left a little to be desired. Stay away from the pizza- its definitely a premade frozen crust, mediocre toppings and way too much not very good cheese. The chicken wings would go well with a beer.

Instead, buy a mango from a street vendor. They are amazing! And a mango isnt the type of fruit someone could inject with bad water, so it's a pretty safe choice.

It is becoming difficult in Xiamen to find good western style food for reasonable prices.
In the Temple you can enjoy simple food of good quality and enjoy a reasonably priced drink while enjoying the remarkable atmosphere in this still operational temple.

Quite unique atmosphere, good food, nice staff, cheap! We had a lovely dinner, and we also bought take-away for the next day. Just sad that we didn't find this place earlier, now we are going home after six-months stay in China, where food has been a great issue for us, cause it is so hard to find some decent one!!
