Restaurant review: Take a Break (喘口氣)

By Ho Yi  /  Staff reporter

For dessert, toast with apple and cinnamon (肉桂蘋果派, NT$100) filled the air with aromas when the slices of apple roasted with cinnamon and cheese came freshly out of the oven.

Take a Break also encourages people to stay and linger. Patrons are welcome to pick one quiet corner, read or daydream next to a crystal glass lamp or a fish tank where colorful creatures swing and dwell. There are books on the shelves and piled on the floor for loungers’ enjoyment.

The drink menu carries a variety of coffees (NT$60 to NT$130) and teas (NT$60 to NT$80). Recommended choices of coffee include honeydew melon-flavored latte (哈密瓜拿鐵, NT$120), black and white latte (黑白拿鐵, NT$130) that contains black and white chocolate, and “warm-up” latte (暖身拿鐵, NT$130) with brandy and a glob of whipped cream.

Another special drink He likes to enjoy on a cold winter day is the apple tea (煙捲蘋果茶, NT$130) which mixes apple cubes with cinnamon, cloves and slices of oranges.

The cafe also has a small selection of German beer (NT$270 and NT$290) and cocktails (NT$180).
