“Great coffee, near train station”
Review of Black Bobby

I can only comment on coffee, friendliness, and proximity to train station.

Good coffee (hualien has a plethora of cafes, but close to the train station this is the only one I know of that has coffee worth drinking; there has been an explosion of kitschy cafes which will charge you excruciatingly large sums of money for a cup of coffee because it is in a hand made mug, or some other marketing trick).

Funky vibe inside, good for a long time kill before a train, or a quick cup before you hot the town.

Original drip coffee, good feeling...
There is no coffee shop nearby Hwalian train staion.
Black Bobby is good for you.
Go straight and cross the street, you can find Black Bobby.
I have a Black Bobby ice coffee.
Vanila latte is so sweet.
This cafe is one of the live music cafe.
제대로 된 커피를 파는 커피숍, 분위기도 괜찮다.
화롄역 근처에는 기차 시간이 될 때까지 잠시 쉴만한 커피숍이 마땅치 않다. 둘러보다가 찾은 게 바로 블랙 바비.
화롄역을 나와서 인포메이션 센터를 우측에 두고 쭉 직진 후에 길을 한번 건너서 좀 더 직진하면 우측에 보인다.
아이스커피는 맛있는데, 바닐라라떼는 너무 달다.
저녁에는 라이브 뮤직 카페로도 영업하는 듯 하다.

On arrival to hualien we discovered the cool place.
Had the club sandwich and a green tea while friends went for waffles and fruit.
Nice friendly staff and good food.
Reasonably priced too
Nice place to go in evenings as the piano is in the corner ready to go.

I'm new around here, but so far as I know, on-site roasted coffee is not common in Taiwan. Black Bobby makes a great espresso and has a wide variety of house-roasted beans, including some Hualien-grown beans.

I was pleased by the price, service, skill, atmosphere and coffee flavour. It's always a good sign when a barista offers a glass of water with an espresso shot - ours did just that.

i ordered beef and scrambled egg, which came without any egg. when we questioned this the waitress fried an egg and seemed to think this was acceptable. the orange juice was fake cheap watered crap. They charge 30$ to charge your phone/laptop even though you've paid for meals and drinks.
