DOUTOR Coffee Shop (羅多倫咖啡)
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.
Aranzi Aronzo アランジアロンゾ (阿朗基咖啡)
Two more days left for this long weekend holiday…any plan yet? Hopefully this post can be one option to be considered? 😉 Have you heard of the brand ‘Aranzi Aronzo‘ before? How about these characters: “Usagi“, “Kappa“, “Panda“, and bad guy “Warumono“, anything familiar? Aranzi Aronzo started offby two ladies in Japan as a home original goods manufacturer. Styled as kawaii, Japanese for cute/adorable, it effectively created colourful attractive characters featured in their notebooks, t-shirts, postcards, and now cakes as well as drinks too.
Richard & Jill
Have you heard about “From Paris with Love”, “From Russia with Love”, or simply “New York, I Love You”? I believe those sound very familiar, right? But if we ask you if you’ve heard “Falling in Love in Krumlov“, what kind of feeling do you perceive? Truthfully I felt a bit startled the first time we came to know this romantic “love story”.
Have you noticed that there is a new MRT line here in Taipei City? Of course, right?! Actually it is not only making the whole Taipei city more accessible by public transportation, but it is also helping food hunter like us to even jump and hit further places positioned deep inside a neighbourhood, for example Nanjing East Rd.
2F Lite (貳拂咖啡)
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? 😉
Paddington Garden (柏林頓花園)
Widely known as the “to-go” place for pancakes in Taipei, I have heard the name of Paddington Garden for quite sometimes. However, as other happening places, the hesitance to go and fight (read: queue) in this boiling hot weather is beyond the craving.
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.
LATTEA is a popular hang-out place for youngsters with a lot of outlets all over Taiwan (not just in Taipei). Basically, it is a simple cafe without any lavish cafe-ish furniture or ambience, but with its straight-forward tables and chairs, collections of magazines, as well as supported with inexpensive menu, it is more than enough for LATTEA to be filled with its loyal patrons everyday.
Drip Cafe (好滴)
Following our post mentioning about the super happening cafe near Songshan Cultural Park, we proudly present to you our very own run-down of the one and only Drip Cafe (好滴) in Taipei. Just opened in the middle of last year, Drip Cafe has been a very popular establishment in the cafe-spotting world of Taipei. To give clearer details, to have a booking there we need to reserve very early, as early as 1 month in advance for weekday slot or (take a deep breath) 3 months in advance for weekend slot!
TENTEN Gelateria (轉轉 吉拉朵)
Eager to chill out at a cafe with a nicely designed lush green yard? Sounds very rare in Taipei, right? We’d love to share this place with you and let’s see if you guys exclaim it like we do. To be honest, don’t expect too much from this yard, because it’s merely a tiny one.
