Top Ten Taiwan Cat Cafes 台灣最佳十間貓咖啡

6 Mar

I have now been to nearly every cat cafe in Taiwan, about 80 in all. Out of all of these, here are my top 10 favorites. In my opinion, the best cat cafes have happy, healthy cats (whether it’s one cat or ten), are clean, have a good atmosphere, creative design and reasonably good drinks and food.

我已經去過大部分的台灣貓咖啡, 大概八十間. 我覺得這十間是最佳的. 我想最棒的貓咖啡有開心健康的貓 (不管有幾隻), 是乾淨的, 有好的氣氛, 創作的設計, 還有好吃好喝的東西.

  1. 小貓花園 (Cafe Cats and Dog) This is the original cat cafe, opened in 1998. They have about 12 cats and now 3 dogs, friendly staff and an extensive menu. 這是台灣最老的貓咖啡, 1998開業. 他們有十幾隻貓三隻狗, 友善的店員, 菜單有很多選擇.

     

     

  2. Cat Lair 六號貓洞 (Taichung 台中) I love this cafe even though I’ve only been there twice since it’s in Taichung. There are 5-10 cats there at a time, all happy and more or less friendly. With the tree branches around the doorway, it feels like a secret hideaway in a forest even though it’s in the middle of the city. The cats are so friendly and happy, and the owner is nice to talk to and very obviously enjoys her job. It’s a great place to relax; one could easily spend a few hours here and hardly notice the passing time.  我很喜歡這間; 我只去過兩次因為在台中. 有5-10貓, 都看起來很開心. 我很喜歡這間環境, 我覺得名字很適合. 門口有很大的樹枝, 感覺像森林裡的小洞. 貓都很開心很放鬆. 還有老闆很熱情還有很明顯愛她的工作. 是一個好地方放鬆, 可以坐這裡好幾個小時.

  3. Mask Cat 貓裝 I’ve been to this cafe more times than any others. They have three very friendly cats who will sit on people’s laps, cute decorations, and a quiet atmosphere for working. 我最常去這間咖啡. 他們有三隻很可愛的貓,會坐在人身上, 可愛的裝飾, 還有安靜的環境所以可以工作.
  4. Collection for Friends 私藏不藏私 This cafe only has one cat, Money, but the cat is so cute and the atmosphere, decorations and food are so good, it still makes the list as one of the best. 這間只有一隻貓, Money, 但是牠很可愛, 還有環境, 裝飾, 食物都非常好所以我覺得是很好的貓咖啡.
  5. Genki Cats 元氣貓主題餐廳 This cafe is home to about 20 beautiful Maine Coon cats. Since so many stray cats need homes, I usually prefer cafes with mixed breeds but these cats are so friendly and happy, I’ll make an exception with this one. They’ve moved since I first wrote about them. I updated the address in the original post. They also now serve full, Japanese style meals in the same room as the cats rather than shaved ice in a separate room. 者間有大概20隻很漂亮的緬因貓. 因為很多流浪貓需要一個好家, 我平常喜歡有領養流浪貓的咖啡館. 但是這些貓非常開心非常親人所以我還是很喜歡這間. 他們有搬家. 我已經改好地址在原本的post. 他們現在有日式料理, 可以吃在貓區.
  6. Cafe Fima 菲瑪咖啡 This cafe also just has one cat, but she’s really the star of the cafe and even has her own business card. It also has a great atmosphere and high quality coffee. 這間只有一隻貓, 但是她是店裡的明星. 她有自己的名片. 氣氛很好還有咖啡特別好喝.
  7. Spring Day Pet Cafe 春日寵物咖啡 This pet cafe has 4-6 cats and about four dogs. They have one of the most amazing cats I’ve ever seen–she can do tricks on command! 這間有4-6隻貓,四隻狗. 他們有一隻很奇妙的貓, 她會做特技跟狗一樣!
  8.  Cafe 218 小猴子咖啡 This cafe has two fluffy Persian cats that the owner adopted. It’s a small place near Taipei 101. The cats are adorable to watch, the owner is very friendly and the coffee is delicious. 這間有兩隻伯斯貓, 老闆領養的. 是一個小間在101附近. 老闆很友善, 貓很可愛, 咖啡很好喝.
  9. 品客 (Classic) This Shida cafe has three friendly cats and occasionally a Corgi. It has a convenient location, good food and nice atmosphere. 這間師大咖啡有三隻可愛的貓還有偶爾一隻柯基犬. 環境很方便, 食物好吃, 氣氛很好.
  10. Minou Minou This Gongguan cafe has two adorable cats and very cute decorations. 弟寶,who was a kitten when I first saw him, is the friendliest, but the other cat looks sleepy and content. They have a great brunch menu. 這間公館咖啡有兩隻很可愛的貓還有很可愛的裝飾. 弟寶, 最年輕的貓比較會靠近人, 但是裡外隻野看起來很開心在睡覺. 菜單有很多好吃的早午餐.

Corgi at 品客 (Classic) 品客有柯基犬

23 Jan

I’ve written about this cafe before and it’s one of my favorites. They have three beautiful, friendly cats. But today I found out that the owners sometimes bring a dog! Pooka is an adorable Corgi who runs to greet customers when they come in. He loves attention and gets along well with the cats. 我有寫過這間 咖啡館, 來過好幾次, 很喜歡. 他們有三隻很漂亮的貓. 但是今天是我第一次看到他們偶爾帶一隻狗! Pooka是一隻很可愛的柯基犬, 他看到客人他很開心. 他很喜歡人, 他也跟貓可以相處.

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.

A friend brought me to this Banqiao pet cafe. They’re a bit more dog-focused in that people bring their dogs there and the cafe’s own dogs are out in the dining area while the cats are shut in a separate area. But they do have lots of adorable cats and the main cafe dog, Hook, is very sweet. 一個朋友帶我去這間寵物咖啡在板橋. 他們比較像狗咖啡因為人會帶自己的狗, 還有用餐區有狗. 貓都關在裡外區. 但是貓還是很可愛, 還有狗店長Hook也非常可愛.

Hook was a stray and he was very thin and weak when they found him, so they named him Hook in hopes that he would be tough someday. He did become beautiful and healthy, but his gentle personality is nothing like the legendary villain’s. Hook以前是流浪狗. 老闆開始養他的時候, 他很瘦,很弱. 他們希望他會兇一點, 所以叫他’Hook’. 他變成很漂亮,很健康, 但是他很溫柔, 一點都不兇.

The cats are in an enclosed area and can be seen through the glass. Some are temporary residents of the pet hotel and others are ones that the cafe owners have decided to adopt or are putting up for adoption. 貓都關在貓區. 一些住在寵物旅館, 大部分是店員領養的或許要給人領養.

They had two very young kittens that they had rescued and were thinking of putting up for adoption, but they’ve decided they are probably going to keep them. 有兩隻很小貓. 店員本來要找人領養, 現在他們可能想自己養.

DSCN5294 DSCN5298

There are lots of cute decorations around, some cat and dog-related and other just interesting, like this collection of Mr Potatoheads有很多可愛的裝飾,一些關於寵物, 一些只是有趣:

DSCN5267

DSCN5284The menu has a good variety of set meals. I had chicken meatballs and rice that came with black tea (NT$240). I didn’t notice it on the menu but later saw they had cat beer on display. 菜單有好幾個套餐. 我點雞肉,蘑菇番茄反, 還有紅茶 (NT$240). 我在菜單沒看到, 以後看他們也有貓啤酒.

DSCN5282DSCN5274

This is another one of the cafe’s dogs who was cute and friendly. 這隻狗也是他們的.

DSCN5318 DSCN5311

Some customers brought their own dog and it pooped on the floor. At least they did clean up after it quickly. Customers’ dogs are also required to wear diapers to prevent some ‘accidents’. (Below is just an example of the diaper from a dog in the downstairs pet hotel area). 客人有帶狗, 狗大便在地下. 但是他們很快清理. 客人的狗都需要帶尿布. 下面是一隻狗在寵物飯店區.

DSCN5280

This is a nice cafe and the pet hotel looks good clean, lots of space for the dogs and very clean. 我喜歡這間咖啡館, 寵物飯店業看起來很好, 很乾淨,狗有很大的空間.

This cafe is more of a cafe with a cat rather than a cat cafe, but the cat is cute and friendly and worth visiting. The cafe is in a traditional old building and has indoor and outdoor seating on two floors. 這咖啡館不算貓主題咖啡但是有一隻可愛的貓. 是在一個古老的房子, 人可以坐裡面或外面.

The cat was stretched out in a box at the back of the cafe, but he was happy to be petted. 貓在後面躺在一個盒子, 但是他喜歡人摸她.

DSCN5136DSCN5137

The menu has a good variety of brunch and lunch options. Rebecca ordered a salmon omelette (NT$200) and I got a double mushroom ‘burrito’ (NT$180), which was actually a pita. We also both got berry smoothies which were huge and had lots of real strawberries and blackberries in them. 菜單有早午餐還有其他簡餐. 我朋友點一個鮭魚煎蛋捲套餐(NT$200), 我點雙香菇’burrito’ (墨西哥捲) (NT$180), 但是不是’burrito’, 是’pita'(圓麵餅), 還是好吃. 我們兩個喝莓果冰沙 (NT$160), 很大, 很好喝.

DSCN5143DSCN5144

The cafe also sells postcards and other gift items, although most aren’t cat-related. It has wi-fi and outlets, so it would be a good place to work or study. 咖啡館也在賣文具, 其他物品. 有無線網路, 還有插座, 所以是一個好地方讀書, 工作.
