Sepia Coffee

242, ChaoFu Road
(04) 2258-9822
Hours:8:30 am-12 am

---By Ivy Shih Translated by Cara Steenstra

Removed but only a short distance away from the traffic and crowds of Taichung Harbor Road, Sepia is located on Chao Fu Road. Its interior is far more spacious and elegant than you might imagine and--in a change from most city cafes--Sepia's understated decor is well balanced by impressive abstract oil paintings hanging on the gray walls. The air is imbued with the mild fragrance of wood, and a closer inspection of all the cafe's chairs and tables will reveal that their original wooden colors and textures have been maintained. Parts of the cafe are also naturally lit by the sun, using glass fixtures to bring in the rays and adding comfort and brightness to the atmosphere.

Such nice surroundings are complemented by Sepia's delicious offerings, which include a selection of filtered single-blend coffees, cappuccino, yogurt, fruit juices, freshly-brewed fruit teas and a variety of Macha teas. Business hours are fairly long, from 8:30 a.m. until past midnight, allowing you to enjoy a freshly-made breakfast here in the mornings. Hot soups are available during breakfast hours and are not a bad choice to warm up the body on certain mornings.

During lunch hours, you have a choice of pasta dishes and salads. They even serve a great selection of red wines all day long. The spacious interior ensures that different spices and scents won't suffocate you while you are trying to savor your coffee, and menu prices range between NT$90 to NT$1,200. All this makes Sepia a great spot for some time out, hanging with friends, or even business meetings.
