Owner used to be a teacher! They have special blends that they make themselves. The C.E.S. Blend tastes a bit floral, very smooth, and comes in handmade ceramic mugs ☕️🌸

⭐⭐⭐⭐ There is one place every expat has to visit (and often dreads to): the Immigration Office. Luckily, this time was a swift affair and I was soon wandering around the area looking for a good café to catch up on some studying. And that is how I stumbled upon Peloso ... who am I kidding, it was only thanks to Google's impeccable navigation I ever managed to find it, so tucked away into a side alley and surrounded by nothing (I later realized it's actually sitting one block down an arboretum housing a historical building dating back to the Qing Dynasty). Its "hidden" location means it's perfect for those looking for a quiet retreat to study or work. Plug in your pc or grab a book from the shelves. One whole bookshelf is laden with music cds so you could probably pick your own soundtrack if that's your thing, though I rather appreciated their soft jazzy music. For those planning to study there, just note that the seats towards the back of the café may be too dark for your purpose (I actually had to switch to the window table to get enough light for my comfort). The menu only offers a couple of food options, such as homemade cake and cookies, but the coffee selection is extensive. Pick your specialty brew or fold onto your drink of choice. The iced latte is delicious. Coffee powder and brewing kits are also available for sale. The service is impeccable. Water is refilled timely and I was also treated to a shot-size drip coffee (a taste I haven't quite gotten used to yet, but nonetheless a small gesture I very much appreciated). Now, the next time the Immigration Office summons me, I finally have something to look forward to.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Nestled in the heart of NTNU's café hub is one of my favourite places to hang out after class, be it to study or just kick-back and unwind. The quiet atmosphere and soft lights really help to focus on your work. There's a wide selection of books and manga you can just pick up and read, and two cats may be seen wandering around from time to time (it's not a cat café though, so if they're not too keen on getting pet don't take it personally). All items on the menu are translated to English to cater to the foreign student crowd. It offers delicious coffee and a small selection of homemade snacks and food, made fresh. A healthy option is available in the form of a lightly dressed salad topped with either smoked salmon or smoked duck. It's a bit pricier than some of it's neighbours, but the perfect atmosphere has me returning time and again. Outdoor seating in the sheltered veranda is provided for smokers.

The choice between coffee and craft beer is difficult to make. Add bespoke cocktails to the mix, and you’ll surely ask the server for more time with the menu. So, be lost in time because the sun doesn’t shine here. Located underground, the place is surrounded by red-brick walls, and books you can borrow to read. Spend the whole day here, or night, you wouldn’t be able to tell without a watch.
