Who Together 胡同飲集聚場, Taichung

Nestled in the back alleys of Taichung’s Little Europe is a small café nearly hidden by trees in the garden. Light blue walls, white windows, the sort that takes your breath away with its domestic simplicity. What bliss!

Here cats roam free like little lions, lazy and comfortable in their surroundings, a feeling we share instantaneously.

Choosing a low table near one of the windows, we sit on the tatami mat. Illustrations of cats, of the cats maybe, are everywhere. A pastel-coloured sanctuary.

We share some tiramisu and slices of lime smothered with freshly ground coffee beans and sugar — delicious! The tartness of the lime and the creaminess of the tiramisu are a perfect foil for the slightly acidic coffee (an El Salvador and a Yirgacheffe), just the way we like it. How fresh, how refreshing!

Who knows where next will we head, but for now, we are here, together. What a blessing, what bliss!

逛完了夢幻的彩虹村,下一站我們要去的是胡同咖啡館。
胡同位於精誠九街16巷裡頭,已經開業超過十年,
算是台中一間老字號的咖啡館。
我們搭小黃來到胡同外,入眼的是一棟兩層樓的老洋房。
淡藍的牆壁,白色的窗戶,有種歲月的味道。
而裡頭的裝潢、用色和佈置,加上幾隻不怕人貓咪,
則給人一種慵懶又舒適的感覺。
我們選了一張靠窗的矮桌,坐在榻榻米上,
邊和貓咪拍照,邊細細的留意咖啡館的點滴。
心想還真的來對了,又是一間很有故事的咖啡館。
除了喝咖啡外,我們原本還想在這順便吃午餐的。
可是看了菜單後才發現原來這裡只有甜品而小食。
不想空腹喝咖啡的我們於是點了一份提拉米蘇和一份青檸咖啡片。
這裡的提拉米蘇雖然沒有我老闆做的那麼道地,
不過也很好吃,我們三兩口就把它給解決了。
而青檸檬咖啡片則是店員的好介紹。
在薄薄的青檸檬片上撒些一些糖和咖啡粉;
原本以為會酸得無法入口,不過咬了一口后,發現還蠻好吃的。
青檸檬的酸味被咖啡的苦,糖的甜中和沖淡了不少,
吃起來給人一種很清新提神的感覺。
下次要在家自己試做看看。
至於咖啡方面則我們點了薩爾瓦多和耶加雪菲。
耶加雪菲帶有花香,而薩爾瓦多則口感均衡,
加上這兩種的咖啡都帶微酸,正是我們喜歡的咖啡類型。
那麼勤勞的走了一個上午,這兩杯咖啡算就是對自己的獎賞吧。呵呵
差點忘了說,當我店裡頭到四處拍照時,發現四周掛了許多剪紙作品。
經店員介紹后,我們才知道原來這些剪紙是出自一位八歲小女孩的巧手。
而且據說是她無師自通的哦,厲害吧?

  1. i love that first photo of the cat. gosh, it almost doesn’t look like a house cat, its face looks like a wild musang. it looks very well-fed 😀 it might be cool to have a cafe in KL where people are encouraged to bring their dogs and cats, and all the animals are free to interact with each other and with the customers and the restaurant staff members. i might rent/borrow a cat for one afternoon and bring it to the cafe 😀

    1. There were a lot of cats in this café. They all looked well-fed and not scare of strangers at all.
      One of them kept jumping on to our table; maybe they drink coffee as well. 😀

  2. 啊,要记下来,差点忘了台中有这个好地方!要赶紧告诉司机大哥一定要带我们去,特别要尝试那青檸檬片,好特别!^_^

    1. 是啊,台灣的咖啡換真的很多,所以要好好的計劃,千萬不要向我們醬,每天醒來才計劃當天要去哪裡,呵呵。
