Address: 臺北市大安區永康街41巷26號一樓

Hours: Monday to Friday 週一-週五 12:00-0:00, Weekends 週末 11:00-0:00

Minimum cost per person 每人最低消費: NT$130

Located on Yongkang Street, this cat cafe appears unremarkable among the other cafes and restaurants in the area. And it is. Except for having two nice cats who were asleep, it’s not really different from any other overpriced cafe in a popular shopping area. The menu is typical without much variety. An Americano is NT130, and since I’d just gone to the Cuckoo’s Nest, I didn’t order any coffee. I had a panini (NT$180) and water. 永康街有很多咖啡館,餐廳, 這間貓咖啡看起來沒有什麼特別. 真的沒有什麼特別. 好處時牠們有兩隻貓,都在睡覺. 除了貓以外,這一間比較無聊,有點太貴的咖啡廳. 菜單沒有什麼特別, 美式咖啡NT$130. 因為那天我剛去杜鵑窩, 我美有點咖啡. 我吃panini,喝水.

The sandwich was pretty good; it had plenty of cheese on it. This cafe is ok if you happen to be around Dongmen, but not really worth going out of the way for. 三明治還蠻好吃, 有很多起司. 如果你在東門, 這咖啡館還好, 但是我不會特別想去.

Here are the cats:

This cozy cafe has a great atmosphere: warm lighting, comfortable seats, nice variety of decorations and good mix of background music. 這間咖啡的環境很好: 很舒服, 很有創造, 有書, 還有好聽的音樂.

At first, I thought they just had this one cat 我先以為他們只有一隻貓:

DSCN0091That was ok, it was still a nice cafe. I looked at the menu and ordered the most interesting sounding item, a hot “Whatever” for NT$120. That meant I’d get whatever they chose to make for me. 我覺得還好, 還是很好的咖啡館. 我點最有趣的東西, 一個”隨便特調”NT$120.

“Whatever” was delicious. It turned out to be a latte with cinnamon and honey. “隨便特調”很好喝, 一個拿鐵加蜂蜜跟肉桂.

I paid my bill, but then the guy asked if I’d like to see the cats. He’d seen I had brought the cat cafe book and had been taking pictures of the one cat. He said they had more than 30 cats upstairs! So of course I said I wanted to see them and they were adorable. All of them are strays that they’ve taken in. 我去買單, 然後老闆問我要不要看貓. 他有看我有帶貓咖啡書,還有看我拍貓. 泰說樓上有30幾隻貓! 我當然說要看! 牠們都很可愛, 都是以前流浪貓.

This is definitely on my list as one of the best cat cafes. 我真的覺得這是一個很好的貓咖啡館.

Address: 臺北市和平東路三段370號二樓

Hours: 11:00-21:00

Minimum cost per person 每人最低消費: NT$80

Located just before Linguang MRT station, this is a combination pet supplies store, cat cafe and cat hotel. The first time I walked past it, I thought it was just a pet supplies store as the narrow staircase going up to the second floor cafe can be easy to miss. The cafe has 4-5 friendly cats, which the helpful staff were eager to introduce. 在麟光捷運站對面, 這間有寵物用品店, 貓咖啡, 還有貓旅館. 第一次我只看到寵物用品店, 要去樓上看到貓咖啡館. 咖啡館有4-5隻克愛的貓咪. 友善的店員很開心介紹牠們.

They also have a separate, glass room with kittens to adopt. Just ask the staff to let you in and you can play with the kittens. 他們還有小貓給人家領養. 如果妳想領養或是跟小貓玩, 店員會讓妳進去小貓房.

I ordered a waffle set with Americano coffee. The presentation of the waffle is very cute, but it actually didn’t taste that good, and the coffee wasn’t great either. But still, it’s a nice place to sit and work, and they’re helping stray kittens find homes. I’ll definitely go back there.

我點一個很可愛的鬆餅套餐. 其實不是很好吃,咖啡也不太好喝. 可是氣氛很好, 很舒服的地方帶電腦工作. 還有牠們在幫流浪小貓咪, 所以我一定要回來.
