Cafe-hopping in Taiwan – VIIA Caffe, A Cafe well-loved by the Celebrities

There are alot of interesting cafes available in Taiwan and I came across this cafe, located in some housing estate beside the Taipei City Hall bus station. It took us quite a while to find the exact location, but thanks to google map, we managed to find it. I got to know about this cafe through Selina’s FB page and told myself that I should go visit this cafe when I’m in Taiwan…. last year hahaha. Yes, I visited the cafe last year Oct during my trip to Taiwan and only managed to blog about it now :P The very first impression I have of the cafe was very english-inspired. True enough, the Cafe is a combination of both olden Italian and modern style. Focusing on the passion in cafe lifestyle. they provide premium coffee and light bites where you can truely enjoy a relaxing afternoon. That’s one large cup of Latte (NT150). Enough to last you through the whole afternoon. From the no. of celebrities autographed mugs in the cafe, you can tell that …

carvers & Co cafe along east coast road katong

Carvers & Co along East Coast Road

Looks like Katong is getting more and more vibrant nowadays with cafes, pubs, massage parlour, shopping malls and hotel. One of the cafe that caught my attention got to be Carvers & Co. They served different menus on weekdays and weekends for both lunch and dinner. So there’s something different whenever you visit the cafe on different days ;) Menus are pasted onto old books which is a good way to recycle them. Deep fried sweet potato chips which can get so addictive… Anchovy Pasta Beer battered fish and chips Dark chocolate tart served with ginger nut and fresh cream which I think is really good ;) Not forgetting to order a cup of latte brewed with beans from Common Man Coffee Roasters. Or you can choose to grab a bottle of beer to go with the roast meats, their signatures. Carvers & Co is a cosy-bistro cafe, with the intention of encouraging parties and groups of people to connect over hearty meals and comfort food. So probably you might want to try this place for your next …

Dutch Colony Coffee at Frankel Ave

Frankel Ave? Where is it at? That’s the first question that I asked my friend when he told me about visiting this cafe at Frankel Ave. It’s actually located at Siglap and it’s accessible by bus. So here we are at Dutch Colony Coffee Co. The moment i step into the cafe, other than going WOW~ the other thing that came across my mind was it looks a little similar to Wimbly Lu, with the extension at the back covered with a glass rooftop with daylight lighting. Definitely a photographer favourite area as daylight lightings makes your photo looks great :) Self service and place your order at the counter. Free flow of ice water available. We ordered a red velvet cheesecake and Raspberry White Chocolate Bundt with 2 cups of latte. Actually i quite like this red velvet cheesecake but my friend don’t really like it as he prefer his. which i think is not bad too lah~ haha! They do conduct workshops that you can register for in the Cafe too! In general, i …

Ronin Cafe, Hong Kong Street

It’s Cafe hopping time and this time round, we visited Ronin Cafe, located along Hong Kong Street, directly opposite Central. You might not be able to notice it as there isn’t any signages that says Ronin Cafe but only the unit no. I love the ambience of the cafe. Very minimalistic and the use of rustic light bulbs, vintage-y furniture like old school cinema chairs and benches with fresh flowers placed on some of the tables.

It’s a simple cafe with very simple decor and seriously, if i were to walk pass the cafe, i wouldn’t have notice it. From the exterior, it looks like a warehouse to me. I even have difficulty locating the door to enter lor! hahaha~

Rokeby at Jalan Riang

Few weeks ago, i wanted to bring my bbfs for makan at the cajun king but it was fully booked that night. So we switched over to Wimbly Lu but still fully occupied.. we move down and finally settled down for some pasta at Rokeby which is located along Jalan Riang as well. It wasn’t very crowded like the other 2 when we enter but it got really crowded when we left. looks like the crowd came in slightly later for them. So.. what’s for dinner? let’s take a look at the menu…

Two Face, A New Found Gem in Tiong Bahru

Was randomly looking for a place to have our late dinner after swim and initially we wanted to visit a nice little cafe but too bad it’s closing in 30 mins time and we didn’t want to rush our food so we decided to change another venue. While walking back to the car, we noticed this “coffee shop” whereby there are Caucasian drinking wine, beer, eating pizza and pasta. That caught my attention and out of curiosity, we went to have a look and to realize that it’s actually a restaurant in a “coffee shop” setting.

Birthday Dinner @ Café Crema

Celebrated one of my bbfs, Waimeng birthday at Café Crema, a nice cosy cafe located at Gardens by the bay. It’s not that difficult to locate as it’s along the taxi stand and within a min walking distance from the ticketing counter. The cafe over here sells mainly pasta and sandwiches. So be it lazing around on a afternoon in the cafe with a cup of coffee, or having a proper meal for your dinner, this will probably be one of the best choice for you when you are at Gardens by the bay.

Rock & Ash Cafe At Marina Square Link

Notice this cafe whenever i passed by that area buy didn’t get a chance to try it out. So, finally, last week, managed to meet 2 of my amblove for dinner over there. Ordered the dinner set meal. There’s quite a few option for you to choose from. You can choose a set with a main course and a drink or a set meal with a main course, drink and a dessert or soup. I got myself the latter one. Ordered the Chicken cutlet as it looks quite delicious, and it’s very nicely fried.
