I'd been meaning to drop by Edia's new location for quite some time; as you know, there's nothing better than sipping a warm cup of coffee while the weather is changing outside. When I finally made it, I discovered that they had changed their look from designer-chic to something a little more friendly and cozy. Now it's like a little neighborhood cafe. Their outdoor courtyard is tiny, but it's still surrounded with plants and sort of runs through the entire coffee house, which allows sunshine and fresh air to circulate through the shop.
Jerry, the owner, has a huge collection of books and over 1,500 CDs for guests to thumb through over a cup of joe. Ten years of a coffee-related experience has made Jerry quite an industry connoisseur. The fruits of his labor pay off in his menu choices. You can really taste the quality in Edia's unique Yigachef beans. These Ethiopian beans have a rich, fruity flavor that tastes great even without adding sugar or cream.
Edia's Italian-style coffees (hot NT$80-150), Iced Coffee (NT$130-150), Syphonated Coffee (NT$150-180), Herbal Teas (NT$130-150), Belgian beers (NT$160-180), other beverages (NT$80-120) and light snacks (NT$60-130) are sure to hit the spot. Also check out their champagne and wine selection.
Currently, they have a promotional package available: Order any beverage and pay an additional NT$30 to enjoy the Cream & Honey Waffles; or an extra NT$50 for their delicious, Italian-style Panna Cotta with Vanilla Ice Cream.
