Taipei Theme Cafe – Alice Is Coming

Hi Lovelies

Having heard so much hype about the theme cafe – Alice is Coming in Taipei I had to check it out during one of my recent trip to Taipei.

Alice is Coming is located at Ximending MRT Exit 3 opposite FE21 Shopping Mall, on the 2nd storey of a shop house.

After Exiting, walk straight down the road and you will see it

From the outside it doesn’t look very fancy

Once you step through the doorway your immediately transported to another fantasy world just like how Alice was after falling through the rabbit hole.

The Cafe is beautiful decorated, like a page out of the story book. Makes me feel am indeed in wonderland.

We ordered an Afternoon Tea Set – NT860 (ca. SGD40) consisting of 2 sandwiches, 2 croissants, seasonal fruits, scone, macaron, fruit tarts, crepe cake, cup cake, creme brulee, swiss roll and choice of 2 drinks. Not a bad deal for SGD40 but, well they are pretty and definitely instagrammable but unfortunately doesn’t taste as good as it looks.

The matcha red bean crepe was too dry, the cream could be ‘flaked out’, the pastries and sandwiches seems to have been sitting out far too long thus loosing its moisture and freshness, Creme Brulee was watery and not firm. Only the fruit tarts and seasonal fruits were more appetizing.

The saving grace was the aromatic Rose Latte.

We went down on a week day so the place wasn’t crowded, but if you plan to visit during the weekend do make a reservation.

Is the cafe worth a visit? Definitely YES, let out your inner child and have some fun at Alice is Coming.

You don’t have to order food just get a drink instead and chill. I would suggest going there when they open at 11.30am so you can the whole place to yourself to take loads of photo.

Thank you for reading.
