In French, the word "Ecole" means school, but in Mandarin it sounds similar to "enough!" This French-inspired cafe and bar is opened by two designers who met furniture shopping. Their business concepts were similar, so they opened this place near the ShiDa shopping district in a quiet alley across from the Shin-Sheng Elementary School. There is a small garden, several wooden stairs and a bit of German industrial design Hochschule fur gestaltung's elements and lines, which is both modern and chic. Owner Mr.Jian hopes to meet more people who are interested in art and design, so he now provides a place to socialize and exchange thoughts and ideas, like a school, something simple and pure! --By Josie Wu, translated by Ann Lee
A. Huge wooden tables resemble the 50's and 60's era in European universities. Feel free to flip through reading materials about design while listening to blues. Time goes by very slow here.
B. On a nice day sit in the tiny outdoor garden and order a cup of Cafe au Lait (NT$150), read a book or go online. If you get hungry, try their crispy Salmon Panini (NT$260).
