Since the early 2000s Nells Home has been a trailblazer in promoting arts, performances, culture, crafts as well as drinks and food. The owner, eponymous Nell Chen, is widely admired for her artistic talents and genuine human warmth. --By Courtney Donovan Smith, translated by Sho Huang
A. Nell has taken a different culinary direction, featuring Bretagne (Brittany)-style crepes. The pictures Salmon & Egg Crepe (NT$159) is savoury and surprisingly filling, making it both tasty and a good deal. The Fresh Juice (NT$130) is made from seasonal fruit. Nells has both sweet and savoury crepes.
B. The softly lit, warm and cozy interior features art, crafts, a small performance stage and handmade tables, chairs and speakers.
C. The outside seating area features an aquaponics setup, plants and handmade signs. The design of her sign was done by Nell using paper that had been recycled, a frequent theme at Nells. Walls serve as a gallery, changing monthly.
