Entering this cafe exposes customers to fresh-wood scents that fill the interior, designed by a professional company that applied a Japanese wooden-home-style decor and ideas. Besides a Japanese coffee shop ambiance, this peaceful, premium-quality cafe also offers its visitors pure food ingredients and coffees. The Ethiopian Yirga Cheffe single-origin coffee beans used here have a hint of a citrus-like tart flavor. If you're hungry, the Marinara Sauce Panini (NT$140), overflowing with melted-cheese aromas, is unbeatable. For dessert, also try the smooth and moist Matcha Tiramisu (NT$120), which isn't overly-sweet and is topped with matcha powder, making it a big favorite here.
