Awesome Coffee and Cafes in Taipei

My friend mentioned something a while back about me writing up a blog post about finding love in coffee in Taiwan and since I’m now living in Taipei up from Tainan I thought that I would finally get around to doing that. These coffee shops and places to buy coffee for making your own cup of joe are nearby where I’m currently living in the Da’an District of Taipei. However, since Taipei is quiet easily navigated by public transportation its easily accessible  for anyone in the general Taipei area.

10 places to have a coffee

This list is in no particular order, just some of the good places

1. Xiao Mijiu Cafe 小米酒咖啡館
