Peekaboo 貓嘰咕

001Peekaboo 貓嘰咕

Address: 新北市板橋區文化路一段270巷3弄40號

Hours 營業時間: 10:00-21:00

Minimum cost per person 每人最低消費: NT$100

 

I went to this cafe about a week before I left Taiwan in October. This is a relatively new cat cafe that didn’t make it into my book. It’s in an alley in Banqiao, not a place I’d think to look for a cat cafe. Some friends who live in Banqiao told me about it, and it’s definitely worth a visit. 我十月快要離開台灣的時候去這間咖啡館. 這間是比較新的, 我書裡面沒有. 我不知道板橋的小巷子會有貓咖啡. 住在板橋的朋友告訴我有這間, 我覺得很值得去.

This vegetarian cafe and restaurant is home to about six friendly cats. They are happy to jump on the table and point to items they recommend on the menu, and to direct your attention away from any electronic devices. 這素菜的咖啡/餐廳有大概六隻可愛的貓. 牠們很開心跳在桌上幫你看菜單. 牠們不讓你看包包, 電子用品.

The menu is completely vegetarian, and has a wide selection  including pasta, veggie burgers, salads, waffles and desserts. It has the usual variety of coffee and tea drinks but these are made with soy milk. Drinks range from NT$80-150 and meals are around NT$200. 菜單全部是素食的, 有義大利麵, 蔬食漢堡, 沙拉, 鬆餅, 點心. 飲料有咖啡, 茶, 拿鐵用豆漿. 飲料大概NT$80-150, 用餐大概NT$200.

The cafe is bright and clean and the cats have plenty of room to climb and play, although most of them are a bit chubby and prefer lounging on the counter or on tables. 裡面很乾淨,很亮, 茂有很多地方可以玩, 跳來跳去. 但是大部分的貓比較胖, 比較喜歡睡覺在櫃台上或許桌子上.

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.

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.

DSCN7379

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.

DSCN7394 DSCN7397

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.

I found this on the way back from Cafe Fima. This is also more of a cat with a cat rather than a cat-themed cafe. But still, I saw the cat signs outside and had to go in. 我先去菲瑪咖啡, 在路上找到這間. 這間也是’有貓的咖啡館’ 不是真的貓咖啡館. 但是我看外面的牌子說有貓, 所以一定要進去.

DSCN6225DSCN6223

It’s in an old building and has wood floors and cute, country style decorations. Some of them are cat-themed, and the menus have cats drawn on them. 裝飾都很可愛, 在一個古老的房子. 有些有貓主題, 菜單有貓畫在上面.

The cat was asleep in the glass counter the whole time I was there. 我在的時候, 貓都在玻璃櫃台裡面睡覺.

DSCN6209

Since I’d just been to one cafe and wasn’t planning on staying long, I just ordered an iced Americano. The menu has a variety of meal choices; their specialty seems to be Japanese food. They also sell postcards and other cute knick-knacks, many of them also Japanese style. 因為我已經剛去咖啡館, 我只點一個冰美食咖啡 (NT$110). 菜單有很多選擇. 他們的招牌是日式料理. 他們也有賣信片, 還有可愛的日式小品.

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.

DSCN5713 DSCN5718

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.

DSCN5709 DSCN5719

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

DSCN5698 DSCN5708

DSCN5710DSCN5717

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.

This is a nice cafe if the weather is good. 如果天氣好, 這間很好.

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.

DSCN5616 DSCN5619

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.

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.

DSCN5254 DSCN5265

DSCN5286

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.

DSCN5260 DSCN5263

DSCN5293DSCN5292

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.
