11 Cute cafes in Taipei worth visiting

Taipei is home to lots of things to do, however it also has a thriving cafe scene. There are lots of lovely cafes here, so it can be hard to choose which one to visit. Here are some cafes that are definitely worth visiting: 

1. Curista 

If you love minimalistic design, then you have to go here. Curista is a really modern cafe with great service and delicious coffee. If you want to try something else, consider getting their pour over coffee or one of their oolong coffee lattes.

They also have plant-based milk such as oat milk available. This cafe is definitely worth visiting because of its clean aesthetic.

2. 蕨咖啡

蕨咖啡 is a flower store and cafe in one. This concept is already amazing. It’s one of the cute cafes in Taipei that you should definitely visit.

They even have a very friendly dog. The lovely dog makes the cafe even more worth visiting. It’s good to know that they also have oat milk if you’re looking for plant based milk.

There’s a small space upstairs where you can sit. I recommend getting their oat milk latte with chocolate flavor.

It’s one of those places where you can just sit and watch the world go by. They have home made plum wine, but also coffees and even pastas. Prices are pretty reasonable.

One of my favorite cute cafes in Taipei is definitely About Islander Cafe. It’s located in a more local area and is filled with plants. They serve home made scones, coffees, vegan cheesecake and more. They also have rice dishes.

I can highly recommend the rose oat milk tea and the pour over coffee. The owner is kind and pays a lot of attention to details. If you can only visit one cafe in Taipei, make it this one.

8. 春希 chunxi

Another wonderful cafe in Taipei is called 春希 chunxi. It’s located in a nice area and is especially a great place if you’re craving some (oat) milk coffee or a tasty sandwich.

The wooden interior and the plants with the lights outside make it a cosy place to sit. Their hazelnut oat milk latte feels like a warm hug inside a cup. I also highly recommend trying the sandwich with salmon and truffle sauce.
