Tugged away in one of the quiet lanes behind Ren Ai Circle is recently-opened restaurant/cafe a poet. Behind its unobtrusive storefront, there is an enchanting courtyard filled with fresh flowers and greens, complete with a skylight that allows in plenty of natural light. Thoughtful restoration of the structure has revealed sections of the original walls, but the eclectic design of the interior is high on style. Picture perfect.

The afternoon tea menu at a poet is succinct, with only four desserts to choose from. The two desserts I tried – Pear and Ricotta Cheese Crepe with Chocolate Sauce (280 NTD) and Orange Flavor Mascarpone Cheese Cake (320 NTD), are both nicely put together and quite light, perfect for an airy afternoon.

A cup of Earl Grey (+80 NTD with dessert order) to complement the sweets.

After dark, candles are lit and a poet transforms into a romantic dinner spot. The menu reads risotto, pasta, seafood, and other Mediterranean type of simple and light dishes.
