Taipei, China, Republic • Recommendation • 

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. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Peloso Coffee Roasters

沛洛瑟珈琲店

Taipei, China, Republic • Recommendation • 

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. ⭐⭐⭐⭐★

CAT.jpg cafe

Taipei, China, Republic • Recommendation • 

What kind of place does the name CAT.jpg cafe evoke in you? Surely, it must be one of those adorably cute shops where you sip on overpriced coffees in order to enjoy an abundance of feline company for a couple of hours. Well, CAT.jpg is about as far as it gets from that. The only cats you will see here are in the form of wall-decor and souvenir stationary (disclaimer for allergic people: the internet claims there have been sightings of an actual cat inside the café, but I have so far seen none). The interior feels almost random in its decoration (or lack of thereof), and the few huge counter-like tables and stools could use some improvement. So why is this café so popular with the local student crowd? Lots of power plugs and a quiet atmosphere make it a great place to spend a couple of hours working and studying. Extra points for the cheap drinks, priced in the same range as other chain shops (don’t expect any specialty coffee here). ⭐️⭐️⭐️ ★ ★ 💬 Chinese 💸 Hot Latte: 80元 (student discount available)
