My cat cafes book release: Available 9/1/16!

24 Aug

I’ve written a book about cat cafes based on my blog and it will be available September 1! http://www.books.com.tw/products/0010726529?loc=P_002_023

我9/1要出書, ‘這裡有貓,歡迎光臨:老外帶路,探訪62間貓店長私藏地圖http://www.books.com.tw/products/0010726529?loc=P_002_023

The book is bilingual and includes all the cat cafes on this blog that are still currently in business. At my favorite cafes, I’ve done interviews and included more detailed information about some of the cats. The cafes all have star ratings and are divided up by type so readers can easily find the cafe they want to go to.

書是雙語的, 含所有還在營業的貓咖啡. 在我最喜歡的貓咖啡, 我有採訪老闆, 還有寫比較多貓店長的資料. 我給每一件評論1-5星, 還有份很多種貓咖啡所以人可以找到最喜歡的.

I found this place by doing a Google search while sitting in Nekokoji Cafe. It’s conveniently located just a few doors down. I think the two cafes are equally good, but in different ways. The style and decor in this cafe are very similar to Collection for Friends. It’s all vintage, country-schoolhouse style. 我在貓小路用Google找到這間. 裡貓小路很近. 我覺得這兩間咖啡館都很好, 也很不一樣. 這間設計很想私藏不藏私.

I liked these signs:

They gave me a menu and this bell and told me to ring it when I was ready to order 他們說我要點餐的時候要按這個鈴:

DSCN2143I ordered an Americano and waffle (NT$170), and it was one of the most delicious waffles I’ve had! It was the perfect texture and toasted almonds and walnuts on top really added to it. 我點鬆餅和美式咖啡 (NT$170). 鬆餅超好吃的!

They only have one cat, Mochi, but he’s definitely the center of attention. He’s not at all afraid of people and enjoys admiration from a distance. Anyone who dares to pet him, however, is likely to get a quick nip or smack. He moved around while I was there, from right in front of the door, to the middle of the room, to the steps up to the bathroom, and finally to his basket to sleep. 他們只有一隻貓; 牠好像覺得自己是老闆. 牠很漂亮, 也看起來很驕傲. 牠不怕人, 但是如果人敢摸牠, 牠會給人一個小咬或許小抓. 牠躺在樓梯, 躺在中間, 跳在桌子, 睡在藍裡.

I was lucky enough to notice this out the bus window, and it’s conveniently located just a few hundred meters from the bus/train station.  There are adorable cat decorations as soon as you walk in the door and start going up the steps to the third floor.

我在公車上很幸運看到這家. 很方便, 裡巴士站/火車站很近. 進去開始上樓梯已經有很多可愛的貓裝飾.

They don’t have cats here all the time; when I asked, they told me one would be coming later in the afternoon. Still, I don’t think there’s any doubt this counts as a cat cafe. 他們只是有時候有貓. 我問他們, 他們說今天下午晚一點會來, 但是不一定. 但是有這麼多可愛的貓主題東西, 一定算貓咖啡館.

The menu has a typical selection of light meals, desserts, waffles, coffee and tea. I ordered a 紅醬培根帕尼尼 (red sauce bacon panini) and Americano. The ‘red sauce’ turned out to be salsa, with a really good spice. And the presentation of the coffee was very cute. 他們的菜單有間餐, 鬆餅, 咖啡, 咖啡, 茶. 我點 紅醬培根帕尼尼, 我覺得很好吃. ‘紅醬’是像墨西哥莎莎醬, 有點辣. 咖啡也很可愛.

I asked when exactly the cat would be there and if I could come back just to take pictures of it. They said it would be there around four so I came back then, and they had an adorable kitten! Its name is Neko and it’s just two months old. 我問什麼是猴貓會來, 她們說大概四點. 所以我四點回來, 她們有一隻超可愛的小貓! 牠叫Neko!

金豆咖啡: Not really a cat cafe 真的不算貓咖啡

21 Jul

Address: 基隆市仁愛區忠三路75號

This was in the second cat cafe book, and I went all the way to Keelung today to see it. Fortunately, I found two other cat cafes on my own to make the trip worthwhile.

這家咖啡館是在貓日和咖啡2, 所以我今天去基隆. 還好我還是自己找到兩家貓咖啡館.

They do have one cat, though the owners seemed surprised that I asked about it. They were nice enough to let me go see where it was hiding on top of a refrigerator. I tried to get a picture, but it was too dark. They said it’s always afraid of people. There were no cat decorations, and since it was a bit expensive and I was already going to two other cafes, I just left. It looks like a fine cafe with a specialty in gourmet coffees and French desserts. But I don’t think having one cat that’s always hiding in the back room makes it a cat cafe.

這家只有一隻貓. 老闆好像很驚訝我知道他們有貓. 他們讓我去看貓躲在冰箱上. 太暗拍照. 老闆說貓都會怕人. 他們都沒有貓主題裝飾. 因為我已經要去兩家咖啡館, 我就離開. 這家的特色是高級咖啡和法式甜點. 如果人想找這種的東西, 應該很好的咖啡館, 但是如果想去真的貓咖啡館, 我不會推薦.
