A famous German brand in the coffee industry,
this shop serves as a cafe by day and bar by night.
Taiwan's Ban Tan Company has spent considerable
sums of money to import everything used in the
shop from the head office in Germany, including
the exterior and interior decorations, the utensils,
the furniture and even the napkins--a first for
a Taiwanese company. Automatic machines prepare
all the food and drinks, and the drink mixer machine
(unique in Taiwan) serves up 36 different cocktails
with recipes keyed in by professional bartenders.
These taste exactly as hand-mixed cocktails would.
Concerned that machine-produced food is dull?
Not to worry, as Cup & Cino provides plenty
of delicious ingredients for both drinks and snacks.
Current regulations require Taiwan Fun to remind
you not to drink and drive.
A. Cup & Cino Panini (NT$150), Totero Tomato
Salad Cino (NT$180) and the Sundae Friendship
Cup (NT$230) are the three most popular snacks.
B. A warm palette gives the decor a relaxing
Mediterranean atmosphere. The imported German
leather couch is comfortable.
