Taiwan Series: Costumice Cafe

Last November 2014, I went to Taiwan together with some of my family friends. I wasn’t planning to blog about the trip but…I just have to. Everything I witnessed, everything I experienced, I want you guys to discover this simple yet beautiful, exciting, and organized country!

This entire series is all about my Taiwan trip highlights. I want to share as much as I can. I hope you guys will enjoy it!

First and foremost, I’m a big fan of coffee shops. The moment I found out that we were going to Taiwan, I immediately researched and listed down the best coffee shops there. (Discovery Tip: Check out Taiwan Loves Coffee‘s social sites for more coffee shops around Taiwan)
One of the many coffee shops that I found was Costumice Cafe. I first saw it here (blog link)

Thank God for Alain’s wonderful parents (and the help of our GPS) for locating this cafe! Hashtag:Blessed. ;)

The moment we got there, I was shouting and jumping for joy (internally, of course)! Anything wood, anything shade of brown, and anything coffee makes me ohhh-so-happy!~

We didn’t have much time to chill, so I decided to spend 90% of my time taking photos while sipping my favorite caramel macchiato in between.

Who wouldn’t want to spend a chill afternoon in this beautiful place?

A quiet neighborhood, the right amount of breeze, it’s no wonder so many people choose to spend their time here.

We also found a not-so-hidden basement!

Taiwan is known for their milk tea, but I think their coffees are equally top-class! The shops are like the hidden gems of the city. Given a chance, I would definitely go back here and chill with a book and my laptop. <3

And by the way, the street around Costumice Cafe has a lot of cute boutiques. So if you like fashion in general, definitely go to this place. It’s like a fashion street of some sort! There are Lookbook people walking all over the place, yet the place never gets too crowded. It’s a great place to walk around and go shopping ;)
