Woolloomooloo Xinyi Branch
Woolloomooloo Xinyi's minimal, industrial design makes this contemporary cafe-come-bistro a visually nourishing cure for the caffeine aficionados. This quiet setting showcases craft beers, artisan wines and fusion food - with a focus on pasta and pizza (though we'd recommend you go with pasta). Also hella good on this menu is the moussaka, as well as a selection of charcuterie and cheeses europhiles may be woefully wishing for.
For those writing forlorn love letters to the alphabet, Woolloomooloo offers the lesser-spotted treat of English reading material. From newspapers to bulky bound coffee table books, patrons have some delightful choices to sift through while drinking a cup of freshly brewed coffee. As they say in their own copy, Wolloomooloo is an 'Anchor for that desperate fix. Caffeine. Intoxicated Ecstasy'. A great place to people-watch over a cosmopolitan cuppa Jo. These coffee cult purists actually fly their own specially selected coffee beans in from Australia.
The staff are incredibly friendly and this is one of the few places in Taipei where service has a personality. There are English-speaking staff members around. The service is multilingual, efficient and friendly. The restaurant itself offers indoor and outdoor seating, with the option of a second floor balcony view, for those wanting to rest and ruminate.
If that doesn't get you, then there is this: SOURDOUGH. GOOD SOURDOUGH. Great service and the perfect place to satisfy a sweet tooth. Woollomooloo has a selection of made-from-scratch fresh cakes and pastries. There banana cream pie is spoken of with reverence.
