Brunches, pasta dishes (NT$59-270), blended (NT$50-80) and single-origin (NT$120-300) coffees are available all day. --By Niang Chen, translated by Angel Pu
This two-story corner shop has a second-floor balcony overlooking the busy street, with lush greenery adding a romantic touch.
The Chocolate Waffles (NT$150) are filled with lovely cocoa flavors and chocolate chips that add a unique crunchiness. Iced Brewed Coffee takes about 24 hours to make and has full, rich coffee fragrances with a slight hint of tobacco.
The healthy Omelet Brunch (NT$109) includes an apple pineapple juice; natural soybean milk; an omelet made with red-seaweed eggs, reduced oil and salt, and low heat; toast; vegetable sticks with pomelo vinegar sauce; and a delicious palm date.
