当天的计画原本是去诚品买书，不过店里人满为患的场面（而且只是周四下午呢！）马上让我打消了 “悠闲逛书店” 的念头。没有其他计画的我决定离开平常活动的范围（其实就是东区和信义区…），到别处去探访些隐藏的小咖啡店。
My plan to spend an afternoon at Eslite fell apart once I saw how crowded the bookstore was (even on a Thursday afternoon!), so instead I ventured out of my comfort zone (namely 东区 & 信义区) to explore some hidden cafe shops in other neighborhoods.
我很想说我是 “意外” 撞见日子咖啡的，不过这里其实是美食家的自学之路 Liz 推荐给我的咖啡店之一（她精选给我的其他餐厅和咖啡店也都很合我口味呢）。光看门面就知道日子咖啡会是我喜欢的地方 － 这里的感觉有点像之前写过的眼镜咖啡，不过空间和菜单都更小一些。
wish I can say I stumbled upon Nichi Cafe through pure serendipity, but it was actually recommended to me by a Taiwanese blogger, who has graciously put together a customized restaurant/cafe list for me as a reference. Nichi Cafe somewhat reminds me of Cafe Megane, a stylish and slightly quirky Japanese cafe near the Tun Hwa/Hsin Yi intersection, except Nichi is even smaller in both store space and menu offerings.
ooden furniture, simple decor, warm lighting. Whether you come alone or with friends, there’s a seat for you.
I quite liked its food-focused book selection.
橙酒拿铁 (150台币)，Cointreau 的香味很棒，不过这杯拿铁对我来说太苦了。
Cointreau Latte (150 NTD), flavor from the orange liquor was a nice touch, but the latte was overall too bitter for my taste buds.
Banana Cake (80 NTD), lovely aroma, served warm and fluffy. By the way, there are only 2 dessert offerings at Nichi, the other being “yogurt with jam”.
My afternoon reading.
Service was minimal and even bordering on cold (much like the style at Cafe Megane), but for my purpose of the afternoon – to find a quiet place to sit and read and steal wi-fi – it was more than sufficient. Nichi is a place I’d go back to just for the ambience, and perhaps to give their coffee another shot.
P.S. Is there anyone else who thinks the bathroom lock is super tricky? I almost got myself locked in there!
