Taiwan Trip: Coffee Alley

My favorite coffee shop in Taipei is Coffee Alley. It's one of the most popular coffee shops in the city, with 6 different locations.
The cafe serves a wide variety of coffees, teas, sandwiches, and desserts.


The atmosphere is very cozy, with plush chairs to sit in.
There is a one drink minimum for each person.
I ordered the iced fruit tea, which is one of their most popular drinks. Very light and refreshing, it was flavored with passion fruit, orange, and apples.


This is the Smoked Beef Tenderloin Sandwich.
It is similar to a pastrami sandwich. Except there was a sweet mustard spread. Why are western dishes always sweet in Asia?!
I still thought it was rather tasty. All the ingredients were very fresh.


Dessert was what I was most looking forward to. Coffee Alley is most well known for their waffle desserts.
I picked the Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream Waffle. So delicious!!
The waffles are very soft and fluffy, different from the Belgian waffles served here. It was served with a scoop of strawberry ice cream and a scoop of custard cream. Ah-mazing!!


Highly recommend this place! It's a lovely place to eat & chat...and rest after shopping for hours XD
Reservations are recommended, always always packed at this place.

One of the only outdoorsy things I did in Taiwan was go check out this crazy bridge thing. 
It's located at the top of a mountain, just a bit outside of the city. I can't remember where, sorry =X


I had to walk across this. Even though it was very secure and didn't swing, it was still freaking nerve wracking! 
Knowing there's nothing but water beneath me freaked me out! Especially since I can't swim bwahahahhaa


The scenery was rather nice. There's a cafe at the top of the mountain but by the time we made it up there, we found out it was closed because it was Sunday T_T 
Yes, I whined about having to climb a mountain! 
Yes, I was wearing 4in heels XD


Apparently people come here to pick strawberries during the summer months. 
I doubt I'd ever go do that, rather just buy them LOL

The Fresh Prince is still looking good :D
