A shortlist of independent coffee roasters and coffee shops in Taipei’s Songshan District. Notes are by an amateur coffee enthusiast and shoestring digital nomad. All the places listed I have been to. Usually, coffee comes first and remote-work suitability comes second.
How to read this coffee list:
These are independent cafes in Taipei that I have personally visited and liked. Below, you will find a photo of the cafe space, a brief profile of what they offer, and the location on Google Maps.
All of these cafes are within walking distance. The maximum distance is about 30 minutes from another cafe on the list and includes a relaxing walk through the leafy residential streets of Songshan District. For light travellers, you can consider walking directly out of Songshan Airport to try a place like Woolloomooloo or Coffee Essentials.
You will also find a coffee walk map at the bottom of this post that has all the cafes listed and other well-respected places. You can pre-load this map onto your phone and it works offline as long as you don’t restart it. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment! Happy tasting!
