English/Chinese menu.

City Resort hotel, located in a quiet but very convenient location between SongZhu and ZhongQing roads, now welcomes non-hotel guests to its new mellow modern-Chinese decor first-floor cafe (and upstairs restaurant). The menu is very simple and coffee choices range from a basic Americano (NT$80) to the more exotic options like the interesting Plunger Pot (NT$280 for 2) contraption, a type of siphon coffee maker that uses a heat and vacuum system, and automatically turns itself off. There are also lavendar, camomile teas, "Pearl Milk" Tea (NT$90), and individual or boxes of pineapple cakes. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Angel Pu

A. Hutong Cafe's glass walls let plenty of natural light into its relaxed, low-key setting. The quiet neighborhood, including a park across the street, make this a good place to escape the noise and rush of the city.

B. A well-made cup of hot Latte (NT$120) and Cheescake (NT$80) or Tiramisu (NT$60) desserts are a perfect snack here.

Hutong CafeC. A coffee-making masterpiece in itself, the tower-like Ice Drop Coffee maker (with plunger pot on left) takes over four hours to produce 700 cc of coffee. Naturally, these exceptional cups of iced coffee (NT$200) are made in advance and best about two or three days after being made.
