Drunk Cafe rose to Instagram stardom with its "globe-shaped greenhouse" concept, attracting crowds of young girls to visit. The cafe has incorporated sunshine and greenery into its space, giving us a breath of fresh air in this busy city. You can choose a high or low seat depending on what you fancy and enjoy some sunshine before the city’s glamorous neon lights turn on.
If you are already a loyal subject of kitty kings, you definitely can’t miss “Toast Chat” and its five cat store managers that have us all wrapped around their paws. Sometimes, they’re asleep in the wooden boxes on top of the dessert counter; sometimes, they’ll even be in the mood to put on a hat and show us what cuteness-overloaded really looks like!

"A Day Cafe” regularly holds exhibitions in its store, which is located in an alleyway around the SCCP business area, quietly showcasing a Scandinavian atmosphere and lifestyle. After going to an exhibition, you can come here to take a break in the midst of fragrant coffee and take a moment to absorb and savor your feelings. Once you’ve collected your thoughts, you’ll have the strength to put on a smile and carry on with life.
The silently beautiful wooden tables and sofas, as well as their especially-high high chairs, are exactly where you’d like to retreat to after going to an exhibition either with your girlfriends or by yourself. “BLAnC” is a cafe with a bistro atmosphere. Here, you can totally relax or be slightly intoxicated by the atmosphere, with or without the help of some alcohol.
Located in eslite spectrum songshan store, every wooden tray used in “musikaffee” is a music box! Before you sample your coffee, you can lift a corner and enter a secret garden where you’d sip a cup of coffee with a dollop of music and enjoy a moment of pure joy.
These five cafes all have their own styles, just like our readers. We hope, after going to an exhibition, you’ll find a cafe that suits your taste and a place to relax your mind. Once your soul recharges a bit, you’ll have all the strength to face life with a grand smile.
