⭐⭐⭐⭐★ 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.
