Minimum cost per person: NT$100

This cafe just opened this month. It isn’t exactly a cat cafe, but they will have cats sometimes. They’re still worth visiting because of what they do for stray animals. The cafe is located in a traditional old house near Taipei Main Station. The owners’ grandmother left them the house and she had always helped stray animals, so they wanted to continue her work. They will temporarily take in stray animals and customers can adopt them. We were greeted by the dog waiter, the only permanent resident. 這間這個月剛開業. 不算貓咖啡但是他們偶爾會有貓. 我覺得來這邊值得因為他們幫助流浪貓. 在台北車站附近, 這間是在一個古老的房子. 老闆的奶奶以前住在這裡, 都很照顧流浪動物. 她去世以後老闆想開這間, 繼續幫流浪動物. 他們在餐廳會有一些流浪動物, 客人可以領養. 他們還有一隻狗一直留在這裡, 他是一個很可愛的服務員.

DSCN5207They did have a cat, but it had just been adopted that day. With the cafe’s popularity, it seems that pets are being adopted quickly, which is great. The cafe is very busy and reservations are recommended.  The furniture is old-fashioned, in keeping with the style of the building. 他們有一隻貓, 但是我們來的時候, 貓已經被領養的. 因為這間最近很流行, 好像動物很快被領養的, 這是很好事. 客人很多, 所以限訂位比較好. 店裡的設計都很古老.

The menu is very cute and includes the story of how the cafe started. There’s also a page where you can order dog food. 3% of all profit from the cafe goes to help stray animals. I had a ‘burrito’, really more of a wrap sandwich, that came with salad, fries and black tea (NT$240). It was pretty good. The menu is simple, with only a few meal and drink options. This is a nice place to visit and a good way to help stray animals. 菜單很可愛. 裡面有他們的故事. 人還是可以點狗飼料. 3% 的消費他們都捐給流浪動物. 我點墨西哥卷, 有薯條沙拉, 還有紅茶 (NT$240). 菜單很簡單, 沒有痕都選擇. 這間的環境很好, 還有區這裡可以幫流浪動物.

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.

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.

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.

I was just wandering around Gongguan in the alley that goes to the movie theater, when I saw some steps going up to a new cafe. Of course I had to check and see if it was perhaps a cat cafe…and it was! 我在公館逛逛, 在一個巷子裡電影遠很近, 我看到一間新的咖啡館. 我當然希望是貓咖啡, 我進去就看到貓!

DSCN3428

This cat was waiting by the door when I came in. He wasn’t very interested in visitors but he was content to be petted by anyone who came up to him.

我看到這隻貓在門口旁邊. 牠對客人沒有興趣, 但是牠會讓人摸牠.

Later, he moved over here to take a nap.

DSCN3448

The cafe has a quiet, cozy atmosphere with decorations with cats on them as well as things for cats, like this record player scratching pad. 這間咖啡館的氣氛很好, 他們有貓主題裝飾還有貓用品, 像這個電唱機.

They also have a kitten! It was asleep at first, but later it came out to play, going from table to table to visit customers. 他們還有一隻小貓! 我剛來牠在睡覺, 然後牠醒來玩. 牠來每一個客人的桌子打招呼.

Their specialty is brunch, but they also have sandwiches, desserts and full dinner options (served after 4pm). I had the Bonjour brunch set, which comes with black tea (NT$230). 他們的招牌是早午餐, 但是他們還有三明治,甜點, 晚餐(16:00以後). 我點Bonjour早午餐套餐, 含紅茶 (NT$230).

Hours: 11:00-21:30

A reader asked if there were any cat cafes in Wenshan District near the zoo and I said I didn’t think so. I heard there was one near 政大 but read that it (or one of them) had closed down. But I decided to go to the area, wander around and see for myself. This sign looked promising. 一個人問我文山區有沒有貓咖啡. 我說好像沒有. 我有聽說政大有, 但是我在網路看好像已經關門. 但是我今天去政大附近, 自己看一下. 我找到這個牌子:

DSCN3322

I went in, and there was indeed a cat! 我進去就看到貓!

DSCN3324

They said there were four, but I didn’t see any others just then. The cafe is very cute and has a nice atmosphere. 他們說有四隻. 這間很可愛, 很有氣氛.

DSCN3325 DSCN3328

DSCN3329

They also have a good variety of reasonably priced food and drinks. I had a French duck breast pita (NT$130) and an Americano (NT$60). 他們也很便宜. 我吃法式鴨胸皮塔 (NT$130), 喝美式咖啡(NT$60).

DSCN3331

And just as I’d finished eating, two more cats came out. Both were black, one large and one small. I think they had been in the kitchen. They were very lively so it was hard to get good pictures of them. 我剛吃完, 兩隻黑貓, 一個大的一個小的, 從廚房出現. 牠們很活潑, 所以很難拍照.

Cat Foot Massage Place 貓足部養生館

13 Oct

DSCN3112 佳農足部健康養生館 Foot massage place with cat

Address: 新北市新店區復興路48號 (around the corner from Tzu Chi Buddhist Hospital)

Minimum cost per person麼人最低消費: 40 minute foot massage NT$600, 40分鐘腳底按摩NT$600

 

This isn’t really a cat-themed place, but I’m including it because it does have two friendly, adorable cats. The cats are the reason I went back a second time. 這間養生館不是真的貓主題點, 但是他們有兩隻很可愛的貓. 是因為貓我才來第二次.

 

 

DSCN3113  DSCN3115

At NT$600 for a 40 minute foot massage, it’s a bit expensive compared to other places; I thought around NT$400 is the usual rate for similar places. The massage was pretty good, though and it’s in my neighborhood. And of course, the cats add value to the experience.

40分鐘按摩要付NT$600, 我覺得有點貴. 好像這種按摩館平常只要$400. 但是這間裡我家很近, 按摩還不錯. 還有, 有貓是更好.

Old 98: A Cat Bar

DSCN2964 Old 98

Address: 臺北市大安區金山南路二段134號

Hours: 20:00-5:00

Minimum cost per person每人最低消費:NT$140

This is a late night lounge bar near Guting MRT, and it has an adorable cat named Moet.  With people drinking and throwing darts, a cat might not be very likely to come out, but this one seems to enjoy the atmosphere. He walked around visiting all the customers and was fascinated with the darts game. He also likes climbing on cases of beer.  這間酒吧離古亭很近有一隻貓叫Moet. 很多貓不會喜歡很多人喝酒, 玩射鏢遊戲, 但是一隻好像習慣這個環境. 牠覺得射鏢遊戲很有趣. 牠也喜歡爬在啤酒箱.

DSCN2949And he doesn’t mind being picked up 人也可以抱牠:

DSCN2946

They have a good selection of beers and cocktails. From what I remember, the whiskey sours were good. It was hard to get a clear picture of the cat because of the dim lighting, but at 4am after a few drinks everything looks a little fuzzy anyway. 他們有很多種啤酒,調酒. 我們喝酸威士忌. 因為酒吧很暗, 有點難拍照. 但是很晚喝幾杯酒, 什麼都看起來有點模糊.
