Stepping into 邊邊 cafe is like entering a secret door in the back alley. It’s delightful enough like that, but the visit with Katie was made every more so by the details – the abundance and variety of plant life, cute wooden frames and window panes, art in tiny corners, lots of vintage… a mess put together into something intricately beautiful. The cafe is no longer around, but the owner has since opened another eatery close to the Hua Shan 1914 Creative Park.
Everything I look for in a space is here – Large windows, ample light, and greenery.
Of all the cafes I have been to, anywhere, this is one of those I remember most vividly. It’s the kind of place that takes you away from reality temporarily. It has a bit of everything in almost the right amounts – nothing too whimsical or clinical, too bright or too dark – yet overall, maybe a little over-curated in places, but still oozing with character.
I’ve been saving these pictures for a good day, but I got carried away, and it has been perhaps two years since I visited this café and design store in Taipei. But, it is still there (I checked their FB page to be sure), although I am not sure how it has evolved since.
Many firsts in life,
and Green Bakery is where I had my first vegan bakes. Yummy.
This is one of those insanely photogenic cafes that I visited with Katie on one of my trips to Taipei, with cute stuff in every corner of the cafe.
These pictures are taken at a wonderful bakery-cafe called Plain Vanilla last December, when the place was all dressed up to welcome Christmas. I’m anticipating their Christmas decorations for 2015 already.
