As much as I enjoy my life in this diverse city, summer has never been a pleasant time of the year to be around. The humidity, the heat and the scorching sun have all made it hard to survive the summer here. Luckily, the vibrant cafe scene offers some great places that make mine and other residents’ lives much easier.
One of the things I enjoy doing in Taipei is checking out different cafes in the alleys, and I think it’s fair to say that this city contains some of the most special and intriguing cafes that you can’t find anywhere else. If you still remember, I featured one of these cafes in a previous Love Note, but of course, my list of favorite cafes doesn’t just end there.
Another cafe that has recently become my “go-to” place in the city is Mys Kaffe. Locating in a small alley near MRT Zhongshan Station, Mys Kaffe offers a unique sense of tranquility that is hard to find in a busy city like Taipei. Remodeled from a historic house, every bit of this cafe seems to be telling an interesting yet appealing story. As its Swedish name suggests, this cafe has a soothing effect on its customers when they open the door. From its warm lighting to cozy arrangements, it seems reasonable to come with a book and just enjoy yourself here.
Another huge selling point of Mys Kaffe is the quality of its food, drinks and desserts. For coffee and tea lovers, their menu is filled with quality drinks that are worth every penny you pay. In case you are in the mood for something different, they also have a diverse collection of local craft beer and other self-invented beverages. Their meals and desserts are equally impressive. From Japanese, French, Italian to Taiwanese, the depth of their menu reflects the thoughts and dedication that the owners have put into this tiny yet heart-warming cafe.
So if you are tired of the cafe down the road from you and want to try something new, Mys Kaffe is the one that you shouldn’t miss. I guarantee that the moment you walk in, you will be enchanted by everything about this cafe.
