+ : Good, quiet and clean cafe to chat with friends or study. Free Wi-Fi and fast service and warm staff. Cuddle and hug cats. - : Expensive ($NT80~$NT180) and bad quality of food.

I visited Minimal Cafe on a weekday evening after 5 pm, and found it fairly quiet, with about five to ten fellow visitors. Cats abound at this spacious cafe. I had barely sat down to peruse the menu when the cat at my table came...More
