Nestled on the 2nd floor of a nondescript apartment building on Heping East Road is Wakin’ Up Cafe Apartment, a space where time stands still (if you look around, the clocks here literally not not moving). The cafe was slightly stuffy on a Saturday afternoon with the weekend crowd, but the cozy decor and friendly service still lured us to lounge here for hours.
After venturing up a flight of rather steep stairs, you will arrive at this.
Love the blackboard drawing behind the bar.
The cafe has an eclectic chair collection. All are stylish, though not all are all that comfortable…
Random knickknacks here and there.
The cafe cat.
Latte with black sugar and matcha (150 NTD), with a thin layer of caramelized brown sugar on top.
A friend’s macadamia nut latte (150 NTD).
Banana brownie (80 NTD), couldn’t taste the banana flavor, and the texture was off.
Apple pie (80 NTD), on the other hand, was lovely, with flaky puff pastry snugly enveloping well-cooked apple slices.
Another wonderful place to linger on a lazy afternoon in Taipei.
