Located not far from WenXin Road, section 3 and Wenhua High School, Bristot Cafe exudes a soothing, quiet atmosphere with its big windows, dark-wood floors, relaxing music and low-key decor. There is also a nice, outdoor wooden deck in the back with umbrella-shaded tables. The interior is lined with shelves featuring the high-end imported food-and-beverage products it sells in addition to usual menu items. These include bags of Italian Bristot-brand beans, organic roasted beans from Estate Coffees, Italian Rosmarino Farm pastas and olive oil, Panamanian Congo-brand habanero-pepper hot sauces, U.S. Lyons-brand toppings (chocolate, kiwi-lime, caramel, etc.), and fine teas from TAZO, and Taylors of Harrogate. Friendly staff are happy to advise patrons about using these items for cooking/enjoyment at home. For dining, the menu features 9-inch Mexican-style tortilla pizzas (NT$120, NT$200 set with soup, drink, dessert), Mexican wraps, salads, and five types of pasta dishes (NT$200, NT$280/set) with pesto, creamy bacon and other sauces, plus specialty pastas like trenette, gigli, and ricciole. Fine coffees (made with the above imported beans) range from the NT$50 espresso to the NT$200 Blue Mountain No. 1. There are also smoothies, hand-made flavored sodas, and red, green, flower, fruit, milke and flavored teas (using tasty Monin-brand syrups like Chestnut or Mandarin Orange).
