Several years ago, I went down Wenzhou Street at Taipei to have a sip of coffee at Norweigian Wood Cafe. It was an unforgetable afternoon, sitting at a corner of the cafe flipping through a local magazine, surrounded by locals drinking coffee. Some were engrossed with a book in their hand, while others were chatting with friends in between sips. There were also those who were simply drinking coffee and smoking at the time. It was a very different culture.
Norweigian Wood has closed down some years ago. The only reason that I suddenly thought of the cafe experience at Taipei was because I came across this blog, set up by the owner of Nido. Running through the lovely pics really make a cafe lover drool. It features not only cafes in Taiwan but also Hong Kong and Japan.
