Caldo Cafe, Taipei

Sometimes coffee alone isn’t enough to make a café visit an experience to remember. For a little more, head to Caldo Café where devil-dark brews are paired with angel-light soufflés. Caldo Café is hidden in a small back-alley near Fuxing South Road; the Indian restaurant opposite confirms you’ve got the right place.

Enter and order your soufflé first as it takes a good 20 minutes to prepare. Their original soufflé carries a light hint of vanilla whereas their green tea soufflé has the deep aroma of good quality matcha.


Both come with a choice of syrups (sweet osmanthus, sea salt caramel, or Cointreau) and sorbets (grapefruit or mango). Honestly the soufflés are delightful on their own.

Caldo offers espresso but go for their hand-drip coffee instead; there’s something about a slowly-brewed coffee that calms nerves at the end of a full day. Choose from a variety of single origin beans—their Ethiopia Yirgacheffe is especially fruity, lovely for winding down with.

旅途中可以喝到自己喜歡的咖啡,是件快樂的事。
但如果可以找到好吃的甜品來搭配的話,那更是錦上添花。
在復興南路附近的小巷中,
有著那麼一家叫咖朵(Caldo Café)的咖啡館。
讓你在品嘗咖啡之餘,還能享受現做的蛋奶酥(soufflés)。
蛋奶酥的製作過程需要約二十分鐘,
所以想吃新鮮出爐的蛋奶酥少點耐性可不行。
我們點了原味和抹茶兩種口味的蛋奶酥,
前者清爽,散發著淡淡的香草味;而後者的則帶有濃郁的抹茶香。
和蛋奶酥一起送上來的還有糖漿和雪葩(sorbet)。
決定了想吃的蛋奶酥后,
你可以從桂花,海鹽焦糖或君度酒三種口味的糖漿中選一款,
然後再搭配柚子或芒果口味雪葩一起吃。
其實,不加任何配料的蛋奶酥就已經很好吃了。
除了意式咖啡外,咖朵還有冰釀和單品手沖咖啡。
想要慢慢的享受蛋奶酥,我們選了手沖耶加雪啡。
耶加雪啡的口感比我平常愛喝的來得濃厚些,
不過那淡淡的花果香和蛋奶酥還真的挺搭的。
我們在台北的最後一個午後時光,
就這樣在咖啡與蛋奶酥的香氣中偷偷溜走了。
