The Pillow Café in Taipei is the kind of cafe to coddle cappuccinos and cuddle into comfy couches (and is, speaking of which, a LGBTQ friendly store). Sure enough, the name gives away some clues about this cozy coffee spot. Cushy seating entices bums to benches and the fairly-priced pickings make this a reasonable choice, for the kind of cosmopolitan city slickers who while away hours beckoning to baristas for another.
Looking for a cafe to study in? A place to put pen to paper? Pillow café also offers electrical outputs in abundance and free WiFi - a snug spot for students or writers to tuck into some work without being pressed to buy more or move up and out. This Café is fairly priced as far as Taipei's cafés go. Light lunches, pastries and a fair selection of teas are also on offer if you want a cuppa for a quiet afternoon or tea with friends. For something sweet, Pillow Café does not disappoint. The kitchen has a selection of made-from-scratch cookies, puddings and creamy fridge cakes.
For a break from the the bioluminescent sea of laptop screens, call 'Shia Pa' over. This store's Corgie is Pillow Café's most fun and furry resident. A dedicated fanclub has taken to photographing Shi Pa lounging flamboyantly on the balcony and he has now become a cardinal constituent of Pillow Café's branding. Pillow Café is open from 12pm until 10pm Sunday through Monday, closed Tuesdays.
These cushioned seats invite customers to curl up and stay there to enjoy a relaxing time.
