Formosa Cafe is a small coffee shop nestled in a lane off YongKang Street. It seems to attract a nostalgic crowd, as it evokes memories of an earlier Taiwan. There are long church pews, cloth banners advertising Hey Song soda and old Taiwanese movie posters. Other notable decorations include an antique cabinet once used in a Chinese medicine clinic, and a millstone now converted to a candle holder. Old cigarette and alcohol advertisements add to the nostalgia. It is of no surprise then that this was once an antique store. In addition to the unique atmosphere, Formosa serves up great coffee that is both full bodied and aromatic. For that extra zing, liquer can be added. Other beverage choices include the sugar-free milkshake, which is creamy, sweet and sour. Once you have had enough to drink, make sure to visit the bathroom. It is a bit cramped, but fits in well with the rest of the coffee shop's decor. There is an antique mirror, as well as a rustic wood door. For those who have not yet kicked the habit, this is one of the few coffee shops along YongKang Street, where smoking is still allowed.--By Ken Lin
