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.

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.

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.

Guest post by Rebecca

Susan has already written about ‘Fat Cat Story’, but Tainan has another fat cat cafe – Fat Cat Deli!

The cafe is located on Xin Yi Street, a quiet street full of old buildings, many of which have been converted into shops and restaurants. Fat Cat Deli is at the far end of the street near a small temple.

FC Deli 2As you walk past, you may feel there are eyes upon you.

FC Deli 3

This cat occupies a place of pride on the owner’s record player, and is quite happy to be stroked while you order your coffee.

FC Deli 4

The cafe occupies three main areas: the first is the bar, where you order.

FC Deli 5

The owners are big music fans and have integrated a lot of their interests in the cafe decor. The bar faces a ‘listening wall’ where you can sample a huge range of CDs.

FC Deli 6An arched doorway leads to the second area, which is the seating area. We chose this cozy corner that looks out onto the street.

FC Deli 7

The detailed menu offers many different kinds of coffee, as well as sandwiches, biscuits and cakes. Note the Wifi password!

FC Deli 8

The third area leads off from the bar up an extremely narrow staircase. Here, you will find a sunlit room with two more cats.

FC Deli 9

I couldn’t get a good picture of the room, but it has comfortable seating for about 5 people, as well a deck, a back balcony and a large window. It’s well worth going up to take a look, not only to see the other cats, but also to get an idea of traditional Tainan housing.

FC Deli 10

These two cats were also very friendly and happy to be stroked.

The owners have placed a few signs around the cafe, gently encouraging you to order more drinks if you feel like it.

FC Deli 11Overall, a great place to spend a relaxing afternoon.

This quaint cafe is decorated in the style of an old-fashioned country kitchen. They have lots of cute decorations, but the cats are kept in a separate area away from the tables. 這間可愛的咖啡館很有氣氛. 有很多可愛的裝飾, 但是貓在裡外一個房間.

The three cats are kept in this room. Make sure to lock the door after you go in with them; they know how to open it themselves! 這是貓的房間. 你進去要小心鎖門, 因為貓會自己開!

This cozy Taichung cat cafe specializes in different varieties of coffee and its beautiful Scottish Fold cat. They sell bags of fresh coffee as well as mugs featuring the cat. 這間台中貓咖啡館的特色是很多種的咖啡, 還有一隻很漂亮的蘇格蘭貓. 他們有賣咖啡豆還有蘇格蘭貓馬克杯.

DSCN3235 DSCN3246

The menu has a wide selection of coffees and teas at quite low prices. An Americano is just NT$40. I had their specialty blend which is NT$60. They also have more gourmet varieties for up to NT$280. They also have sandwiches and waffles. 菜單有很多種咖啡,茶, 都還瞞便宜. 美式咖啡只要$40. 我喝特濃金牌$60. 他們還有三明治, 鬆餅.

DSCN3245

The cats are in a separate room. There are two of them–the Scottish Fold who is very friendly and is even happy to be picked up, and a grumpy gray tabby which supposedly bites. Maybe he’s jealous that he isn’t the star of the cafe. He’s still a handsome cat. 貓在裡外一個房間. 有兩隻–一隻蘇格蘭貓,很喜歡人摸牠, 抱牠, 還有一隻比較兇的灰色貓, 會咬人. 牠可能不爽因為牠不是店裡的名星. 但是牠還是很帥.

DSCN3243

DSCN3242The cafe has a cozy atmosphere and fast wifi, so it would be a nice place to study or work. 咖啡有wi-fi,很適合讀書或是工作.

This was listed as a cat cafe in the second book, and so I went all the way to Danshui today to see it. It is not a cat cafe anymore. I don’t think it could ever really be considered a cat cafe. The cat that was there was a stray that used to just hang out at the cafe all the time, and the owner decided to adopt it and take it home. The guy working in the cafe told me that the cat is doing  well and has gotten very fat. The only cat related things about the cafe is this:

貓日和咖啡館2說這是一間貓咖啡. 所以我今天才去淡水看一下. 真的不是貓咖啡. 以前也不太算貓咖啡. 店員跟我說以前書裡面的貓是一隻流浪貓一直來那個咖啡館. 後來,老闆領養牠, 帶牠回家. 他說貓的生活現在很好,牠變得很胖! 咖啡館只有這個貓主題的東西:

DSCN2888Still, if you’re not expecting a cat cafe, it’s a lovely place otherwise with an amazing view. The seating area is on the second floor and is all open air. 這間咖啡館還是很不錯. 很可愛, 還有很漂亮的風景.

DSCN2891 DSCN2892

I had a bagel with cream cheese (NT$70) and a latte with curacao and triple sec (NT$150). Both of these were delicious. 我吃起司硬麵包圈, 喝柑桂酒拿鐵.

Meows Corner Meeting 轉角遇到貓 (Macau)

Address: Macau, #1 Calcada do Poco 澳門和隆街1號家昌大廈地下

Hours: 12:00-21:00

 

 

 

 

I went to Macau last week, so of course I had to find out if there were any cat cafes there. This is the only one, apparently, but it’s very nice. I spent a lot of time getting lost before I found it, and the first time I got there, it was closed for two days for the Mid-Autumn Festival. It was finally open on Thursday. 我上個禮拜去澳門, 我一定想找一個貓咖啡館. 澳門好像只有這間. 我米路很久才找到, 但是為了中秋節, 他們沒有開. 禮拜四才有開.

I went in to be greeted by beautiful cats that look a lot like mine. 我進去看到兩隻貓很像我的貓.

DSCN2665 DSCN2668

The menu isn’t very extensive, and I wasn’t very hungry but was extremely thirsty from wandering around all day so I ordered a lemon tea (MOP28). 菜單沒有很多選擇. 我其實不餓, 只有很渴因為一整天都在走路, 所以我點檸檬紅茶 (奧幣28).

DSCN2683

They have books, wi-fi and cute cat decorations all around. 他們有書, 又無線網路, 還有很可愛的毛裝飾.

DSCN2698 DSCN2670

In all, there are 7-8 cats. There was one in a room upstairs where it was too dark to get a picture. All of them are very friendly. The brown one was particularly friendly with all of the other cats, going up and ‘hugging’ and licking them. 他們有7-8隻貓. 樓上還有一隻但是太暗, 拍不到. 一隻咖啡色的很喜歡跟所有的貓關係很好.
