good to know
Go here for: getting some work done and appreciating art books
Order this: their coffee is up to par across the board. Also grab a dessert: a slice of their matcha crepe cake or apple tart
Amount of time to spend: 1-2 hours
When to come: whenever you feel like chilling out, or hiding from the rain. And in the morning, when most other cafés are closed
Getting here: about a 5 min walk from CKS Memorial Hall Station, Exit 3
Other things to note:
- Avoid the afternoon rush, generally Taiwanese people love getting coffee in the afternoon, so mornings tend to be more quiet.
- They have plenty of seating and a relatively quiet environment, free wifi and outlets too, so it’s good for working.
- Like many places in Taiwan, there is a minimum order of 150NT per person.
