--By Amelie Tseng Translated by Cara Steenstra

This writer couldn't wait to get inside No.612 Moonlight Sea Cafe. Through the decorative door, friendly folks greet you warmly. The young owner with the little moustache says hello from behind the counter, while he busily prepares cheesecakes in this small, but well equipped cafe. The clean, simple and modern green decor accentuates the atmosphere of the open-style bar. An extensive private book collection sits neatly along a wall on a shelf made from driftwood, waiting for readers to savour them. This small, but welcoming, environment makes for a great escape with a few friends. Whether you choose the second floor Mediterranean style corner, the retro-style sofa area or just a seat by the window, order yourself a latte, pick out a book and relax to the music of Jack Johnson.

The main fare is Italian coffees, tea, fruit juices and the owner's handmade snacks and light meals. Also available are limited set lunches and dinners, prepared with fresh ingredients purchased daily from the produce markets. The owner has years of coffee-making experience, and uses select coffee beans as well as quality fresh milk to prepare smooth rich coffees that he is proud of, and will have you savouring them with all your heart.

The fruit drinks and flavored teas all have names that make you want to try them. There are specialty milk teas from different countries, like the Hokkaido Milk Tea - rich in white chocolate aroma. Worth mentioning are the handmade cheesecakes and caramel puddings. Breakfasting here is also an enjoyable affair, but is only available on weekends.

One can say that No.612 Moonlight Sea Cafe sells happiness, as well as a space where happiness can be shared. Guests are welcomed to share their travel experiences. Tuesday is the owner's surfing day, so the cafe is closed, but you are welcome to join him in Kenting for a bit of sea and surf.
