I came across this place while wandering around the alleys near Gongguan. I saw two cats outside and decided to go in. The cats are only outside though, so this is more of a cafe with cats than a real cat cafe. They do have lots of outdoor seating and since it was a nice day, I sat at a table with a cat. 我在公館逛逛找到這間. 我看到兩隻貓在外面, 所以我進去. 其實貓都在外面, 不可以進去, 所這間不是真的貓咖啡, 只是有貓的咖啡館. 但是外面有很多位置, 所以我坐在一個有貓的桌子.

The cafe’s specialty is gourmet, ‘direct trade’ coffee. Inside the walls are decorated with pictures from the countries the coffee comes from. 這間的特色是 ‘direct trade’ 咖啡從非洲來的, 裡面有咖啡的國家的照片.

I’d rather be outside with the cats though. 我比較喜歡外面因為有貓.

The menu has a variety of coffees and teas. I had an afternoon tea set, a cappuccino with the dessert of the day, chocolate banana cake.  菜單有很多種咖啡, 茶. 我點下午茶套餐, 卡布奇諾和巧克力香蕉蛋糕.

Although not quite a cat cafe, this pasta restaurant has two cats and they also had a cat party in July when people brought in their own cats.  The cats are a bit shy but are cute and playful. 這間義大利麵餐廳有兩隻貓. 我還有看到他們七月有一個貓派對, 客人都帶貓. 店裡的貓有點害羞, 還是很可愛, 很活潑.

11995242_1155708517778870_1831694850_oThe menu has a wide variety of pasta dishes, all reasonably priced. I had a set meal with pepper chicken pasta with garlic and white wine sauce (NT$210) and my friend had grilled salmon pasta with cream sauce (NT$240). The sets came with garlic bread, soup and a drink. All the food was very good. 菜單有很多選擇, 都還滿便宜. 我點蒜辣雞麵, 我朋友點鮭魚麵. 套餐都有麵包, 湯, 飲料. 都很好吃.

The cats spend a lot of time in the back and may not let you pet them, but it’s a good restaurant and it’s fun to watch the cats play with each other when they come out. 貓常常在後面, 有時候不喜歡人摸牠們, 但是食物很好, 還有看到貓出現玩是很好玩.
