A shortlist of independent coffee roasters and coffee shops around the National Taiwan University (NTU or Taida) and the Da’an and Zhongzhen area. Notes are by an amateur coffee enthusiast and shoestring digital nomad. Places are reviewed for their remote work suitability, but the main focus is usually either the coffee or the story behind the cafe.
How to read this coffee list:
The independent cafes on this list were visited during a trip in Spring 2017. Below, you will find a photo of the cafe space, a brief profile of what they offer, and the location on Google Maps.
My map also includes other restaurants and cafes I’ve visited in the Da’An and Zhongzhen Districts throughout several years.
Hi日楞 Ryou Cafe
早秋咖啡 Cafe Macho
山田咖啡 Yamada Coffee
Paper Street Coffee Company
The entire area around Taida (NTU) and Shida has affordable local eats. If you want a cozy sit-down place, the dining cafes beside NTU are a great bet — plus, many double up as great lounge bars and have live music at night.
In my map, look for the fork and knife icon for places to eat. Most of them are quite local and more on the street-food end. I have added notes in the map location pins.
