Reminiscing our last visit to the rising sun of Asia, I was really excited once we randomly passed by a Doutor cafe in Taipei, just around Minquan East Rd. Station. Pleased of their breakfast experience in Japan, we are curious how will it be like in their overseas establishment.
What’s your impression when you heard the name of this place, “The Toast Heaven”? Literally a place full with variety of toasts? YES! It may be disappointing for you who aren’t bread lovers, but their menu just covers toasts – sweet french toasts with ice cream and fruits toppings and savoury ones with ham, sausages, and other meaty items.
This place we’re about to review is tucked along the busy main street in Xihu area (looks like this only applies on weekdays as when we went there on weekends the area seemed a little deserted). Yes, this place’s location is not that convenient to us, we admitted it, but we really wanted to give you guys this special review! Why is this place so special? Curious? 😉
This place may not be the most happening brunch place around Banqiao. This place may not be the popular all-day breakfast joints (like the Din*r, Sec*nd Fl**r C*fe, Paddington Garden, etc). But hey! There are a bunch of good things behind the fact that this place does not belong to those two criteria mentioned before.
What would suit your mood best when it is raining outside? For us, it would be staying indoor and lazing out, enjoying the cool breeze (of aircon :mrgreen:), and yes of course we mean during weekends – how we wish we can do this on weekdays too 😛 . So for this time, we are so much motivated to share with you a place we consider our very own hide-out base.
We are again back with tea-time-themed post! This time we would like to review a cafe with a unique concept of Japanese phenomenon termed ‘zakka‘, cute and attractive style. While the term does give out unfamiliar aura, just ease yourself with simply description of a cute and homey feeling designed cafe. I bet local Taipei cafe-spotting regulars would most probably recognize this place as it has been in operation since 2006 to-date.
Who’s up for weekend brunch? ME, ME, ME! 😀 Well.. just like any other girls (this is merely my assumption though lol), I am really fond of having lazy brunch over the weekend. It is like one of a kind of a relaxing therapy or simply a ritual that I am looking up to. More over, a lot of choices of cute cafes and bistros are now popping all around (extended) Taipei. However, this does not mean it is easy to find a place where there is no queue.
Having been hanging around Xindian (新店) district of New Taipei City for quite sometimes, there are some places worth introducing. One of those is Relish Cafe. Located in the main street just few blocks away from Dapinglin MRT Station (捷運大坪林站), it is always full of patrons regardless of the time.
One very special day (12.12.12) my dear roommates L, F, and I planned to have a celebration (just kidding – we realized it only afterwards though).. Anyway, December (new month!) is coming so we kinda feel like deserving a lunch off with yummy food 😉 (we hope to schedule at least one lunch-get-together session every month). Moreover, there is a trendy cafe cum brunch place in Gongguan just short walk away which L really wanted to try.
