Youthful owner Mr. Dove Wu left his job at an engineering firm to open this place, meet new people and offer good-quality tea and coffee, made with carefully-selected imported beans. This two-story cafe is located in the Laurel Wreath Community, between HanKou Road and HeCuo Street. Also an avid drummer, Dove decorates the second floor with musical instruments plus some personal CDs. A hint of rock background music and welcoming staff enables customers to enjoy a relaxing atmosphere and menu that includes waffles, flavored milk drinks and iced coffee, from an Espresso (NT$80) to Irish Coffee (NT$180). --By Javier Siles, translated by Eva Liao
A. A combination of creamy milk and rich, aromatic coffee, the Cappuccino (NT$100) is a must-try. Customers get a 50% discount on the second round of any same drink.
Most customers at this very French-looking shop do take-out, although there are 10 seats inside to linger at.
C. Chef Axel Baracassa brings a tremendous amount of experience to Taichung from Montpellier in southern France, where he worked at La Diligence Restaurant.
