The entrance to the café is really cool, The beverages they serve are to be desired and pricey. There's really no service to mention.

This is the kind of place that made me nostalgic for being a student since it would be perfect for studying (or intending to study with friends but talking for hours instead). I tried the Lei Cha, which is a Hakka traditional beverage served to...More

The entrance is yes a very narrow alley. So it's more than a normal café, tourists would take pictures of the entrance. Once in the café you can read about the history - it was a pub long ago, then a café then the current...More

Literally narrow entrance! Rustic deco, drinks slightly overpriced. Service could be better, the table cloth were not cleaned at all (bread crumbs) from previous customers when we are seated.

Well the venue is charming but the service is very slow, the prices are pretty high for Tainan and they have a weird and unnecessary minimum spend. They are trading on the name and venue alone I'm afraid. Take your photo outside and then walk...More

I was visiting my friends in Tainan for a few days and they took me here. The atmosphere was interesting and a nice respite from the late summer heat. Enjoyed the drinks, but they were costly. The owner does speak English. Made ordering drinks easy.

My hot kumquat tea was good, not better than in other shops, but definitely you don't go to this kind of places to find better-than-average food or drinks. The environment is cozy, welcoming, with beautiful view over the grounds of the Confucius Temple just beyond...More

You cannot stay inside this cafe and just take pictures. You have to buy something for you to stay. Wi-fi signal is good. If you are in Tainan, might as well try this one of a kind cafe. Finding the exact address of this place...More

The main appeal of this cafe is the narrow alley you have to walk through to get to its' entrance. From there, you walk up a flight of slightly wider stairs to a spacious room with rustic decor. And that's where the appeal ends. The...More

West Central District/ North District
The West Central District is the most populous and the
busiest area. A lot of shops and hotels crowd the
district, and the long-standing history results in a
variety of street food. In addition to that, this
district also has the highest number of temples. This
is how it got the name “Tainan’s Pantheon.” Historic
buildings are literally ubiquitous. For example,
Hayashi Department Store, National Museum of Taiwan
