Recommendation by Lemi
A cozy afternoon spent at Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters comes with a delicious mug of in-house roasted java. Coffee offerings are rotated regularly here, so ask the baristas for the day’s selection. The cafe is also known for their comfort food, which pair perfectly with their drinks. Stay ’til dark and watch the Upper Thomson crowd transition from day to night, as espressos are replaced by pale ales and stouts.

Pacamara might possibly be my most favourite café in the entire world. They have everything from kitchen gadgets to stouts. Their ambience boasts of crisp white walls, minimalist furniture with consistent touches of wood, high ceilings with floor length windows - yet it still impressively manages to stay laid back and relaxing despite its constant hubbub. Pacamara routinely changes their menu, which definitely has its pros and cons - though if you’re lucky, your no. 1 pick might linger a while longer if it’s a crowd favourite so fingers crossed! My all time favourite from them was their carbonara with prosciutto ham, emphasis on the was because it’s been replaced, although it was on the menu for a pretty loooong time. Their latest menu was launched on 30 May 2019. Their coffee selection isn’t as wide, but as a former barista, I have to say that the way they prepare their coffee is consistent and their beans are always excellent. You even get to choose your preferred type of coffee beans - robusta or arabica. Like their menu, they routinely rotate their bean options. If you’re unsure, they have well trained staff/baristas that are more than willing to assist you, even I sometimes seek their advice. Price wise, Pacamara is definitely on the pricier side (as you can see from their latest menu that I’ve cheekily stolen from their website for my, and yours’, convenience) which they make up for in their generous portions, fresh ingredients and consistently impeccable cooking. Their food is the one that definitely separates them from any other cafe (especially along Thomson Road) All in all I absolutely recommend Pacamara to locals and tourists alike. If you’re looking for a place to work, catch-up with a friend, a family friendly spot or you just want to try a new place with wicked grub, Pacamara is the place to be.

After reading about this café's Signature 𝗦𝘄𝗲𝗲𝘁 𝗣𝗼𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗼 𝗖𝗼𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗲 (啡你摸著) in @celine's list, I knew I had to try it. And disappoint it did not. It was just as whimsical and delicious as I expected (tip: stir all the layers together and let it sit for a while to experience the full flavour). 𝗚𝗮𝗯𝗲𝗲 𝗖𝗼𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗲 offers an extensive drink menu, overflowing with signature coffee cocktails and specialty blends. The baristas have won numerous awards, and it shows in the love and detail they put into their craft. If you are a coffee connoisseur and have been looking for a shop where you can get your cuppa brewed to your exact liking, worry no more: at Gabee you can select not only your coffee blend, but also the brewing method and the serving style (it's been a long time since I saw these many authentically Italian coffees on a menu). The food menu is not quite as long, but I was pleasantly surprised by just how good their 𝗖𝗵𝗶𝗰𝗸𝗲𝗻 𝗦𝗮𝗻𝗱𝘄𝗶𝗰𝗵 was: crispy seed bread, tasty sauce, and an unexpected slice of tofu adding extra texture. The coffee-bean shaped waffles flavoured with coffee-flower sauce make a good snack to go with your drinks. If you are feeling more adventurous, the 𝗛𝗼𝗷𝗶𝗰𝗵𝗮 𝗖𝗼𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗲 𝗟𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗲 is an interesting blend of tea and coffee (which sounds like a capital sin to my Italian soul but is an actual thing in Asia, and one of my secret guilty pleasures). Enjoy some quiet conversation or delve into a work session at this café, sipping and nibbling your time away. 💬 Chinese and English menu available 🌿 Vegetarian options available 💸 100 ~ 300元 https://lemi.travel/celine/taipei-saves/gabee-coffee
