Three Cats Cafe 三貓小舖

20 Feb

Three Cats Cafe 三貓小舖

Address 地址: 台北市大同區赤峰街53巷14號

Hours 營業時間: 11:30-20:00

I haven’t posted since my book was published, partly because I’ve already been to most of the cat cafes in Taiwan and partly because I’ve moved to Malaysia. However, I just went back to Taiwan for a short trip and my friend told me about a new cat cafe between Zhongshan and Shuanglian stations. There’s no minimum drink purchase as this is also a shop with lots of cat-themed items, so people are free to browse.

我很久沒寫. 我出書之後, 我搬到馬來西亞, 還有我已經去過大部分的台灣貓咖啡. 但是我最近回來台灣幾天. 我朋友跟我說有一間新的貓咖啡在中山/雙連附近. 沒有最低消費因為他們賣很多貓主題東西, 可以進去逛.

There are actually five cats, not three as the name suggests. The name is the name of their brand and they were selling cat-themed items before they started the cafe. Two of the cats are friendly and three are shy. The long haired grey one was very friendly. The tabby was timid and wouldn’t let anyone pet her, but she was fascinated by my cat ears hat. She seemed to think it was a real cat. 三貓小舖是他們牌子的名字, 咖啡裡有五隻貓. 兩隻喜歡人, 三隻比較害羞. 一隻很喜歡我的帽子. 牠很怕人, 但是牠好像以為我的帽子是一隻貓!

The two cats not pictured were an orange and white cat and a black kitten. My friends and I just had tea as the cafe was going to close in less than an hour. The menu has the usual coffee and tea selections and some desserts. The shop has a large selection of adorable shirts, bags, stationery, wall hangings, coasters and more. 還有一隻黑色小貓, 一隻橘色的, 我沒有拍到. 我們隻喝茶因為咖啡館快要關門. 菜單有咖啡, 茶, 點心. 他們的商品非常可愛, 有很多很特別的東西.

Address 地址: 14 Hoa Sua, Phu Nhuan District

Hours 營業時間: 7:00-22:30

Minimum cost per person 每人最低消費: VND45,000 (about $2)

 

This dog cafe has about 25 friendly dogs on two floors. When I first went in, they showed me into the room on the first floor. It’s open in the center for the dogs to run around and has benches around the walls for people to sit on and shelves for them to put drinks. I ordered an iced tea and went to play with the dogs. 這間狗咖啡有大概25隻很可愛的狗, 有兩樓. 我剛進去, 店員帶我去一樓的房間. 中間失控的, 狗可以玩. 有長椅子客人可以坐還有架子可以放杯子. 我點冰紅茶, 繼續跟狗玩.

They had a Chinese Crested dog, a rare hairless breed that I’d only seen pictures of before. It was very sweet and friendly, and it soon curled up on my lap. 他們有一隻很特別的無毛狗,中過冠毛犬. 牠很可愛, 很喜歡人. 牠快來坐在我身上.

After a while, the staff asked if I wanted to go to the second floor. The second floor had even more dogs than the first, mostly large ones. 晚一點, 店員說我可以去二樓. 二樓有更多狗, 還有比較大的狗.

They were all beautiful, and I especially liked the big husky. This isn’t the kind of cafe where one could work or quietly sip a coffee, but it’s a great place to see and play with lots of different kinds of dogs. 多很漂亮, 我很喜歡一隻很大的哈士奇. 這種咖啡不適合工作, 安靜喝咖啡, 但是一個很好的地方跟很多不一樣的狗玩.

Located near Dihua Shopping Street, this is a pet cafe rather than a cat cafe. The owners do have a cat that comes sometimes, but it wasn’t there today. Still, they have lots of pictures of cats around. 離迪化街很近, 這是一間寵物咖啡, 不是貓咖啡. 老闆有一隻貓, 牠偶爾會來, 但是今天不在. 他們還是有很多貓圖片.

People are welcome to bring their own pets, cats or dogs. Today, some people brought a friendly little dog in a sweater. It’s harder to get good pictures of dogs because they move around too fast, though. 客人可以帶自己的寵物, 貓, 狗, 都可以. 今天人代ㄧ隻很可愛的小狗, 穿者毛衣. 但是他動太快, 我沒有拍到牠.

The menu has interesting, punny names for the items. 菜單很有趣, 飲料, 食物的名字都有創造.

I had a yogurt soda with kumquat (NT$100) and French bread with cheese on it (NT$80). These were very good. The owner also gave me some freshly made little egg cake things. 我喝’多多狠生氣 (NT$100), 吃孤獨法國仛 (NT$80), 都好吃, 好喝. 好有老闆送我一些小雞蛋糕.

This is a cute, cozy cafe and a nice place to work or read even if it doesn’t have a cat most of the time. The dog that was there was sweet and people can always bring in different pets. 這間咖啡館很舒服, 一個好地方看書, 用電腦. 平常沒有貓, 但是還是有可愛的寵物.

 

Go Bar 狗吧

CIMG2349  Go Bar 狗吧

Address: 新北市新店區環河路17號

Hours: Wednesday to Sunday 11:30-21:00; Closed Monday and Tuesday; on weekends call 02-2918-3696 for reservations 週末必須要訂位, 電話: 02-2918-3696

Minimum cost per person 每人最低消費: NT$200

I found this place a couple of weeks ago when I was walking around the Bitan area on a Sunday evening. Xindian may not have a cat cafe, but they do have a dog cafe! The cafe has four dogs of its own, and customers can also bring their own dogs. When I first saw it, it was crowded and they didn’t have any seats without reservations, so I came back on a weekday afternoon. Even on a weekday, there were quite a few people with their dogs. I think I was the only person without a dog.

我兩個禮拜前在碧潭散步的時候, 我找到這個咖啡館. 新店沒有貓咖啡館, 但是有購咖啡館! 咖啡館有四隻狗, 海有客人可以帶自己的狗. 我第一天看到是禮拜日晚上所以人很多,都沒有位置. 她們說週末一定要訂位. 所以我平常日下午有回來. 還是有好幾個人帶他們的狗. 好像只有我沒有帶狗.

The cafe had a nice atmosphere, especially on a warm afternoon with a fresh breeze blowing through it. The dogs were very sweet and friendly. My favorite was 妹妹, the golden retriever.

咖啡館的氣氛很好, 在一個好天氣的下午特別好. 他們的狗都很可愛. 我最喜歡的是妹妹, 一個黃金獵犬.

And here are the others (the fourth one, a medium-sized black dog, wouldn’t stay still for the camera) :

The other people’s dogs were cute, too, though not quite so well behaved. The cafe does a very good job of keeping things clean and their are signs asking people to clean up after their pets (and plastic bags provided). Both these dogs pooped and peed on the floor, although it was cleaned up quickly:

客人的狗也很可愛但是沒有那麼乖. 咖啡館很乾淨;我看店員產常在打掃. 他們還有牌子說人要清理自己的狗大小便 (還有提供垃圾袋). 這些狗有大小便在地板上, 但是主人快清理:

On the menu, they have a variety of fried foods, pastas and desserts, as well as the typical coffee drinks. I had a latte (NT$110) and a brownie with ice cream (NT$120). The coffee really wasn’t very good; I wouldn’t order it again. They did have a good selection of beers though.

菜單有炸食物, 義大利麵, 點心, 海有咖啡,茶飲. 我點一個拿鐵 (NT$110), 還有一個冰淇淋布勞尼(NT$120). 我覺得那個拿鐵不好喝,我不會再點. 但是他們也有很多種啤酒.
