Yuki's been talking about a coffee shop near the Songshan Airport for some time. So today, we didn't have any real plans, and headed up to the Songshan Airport station. From there it's about a 10 minute walk to Daughter's Cafe. Once upon arrival, we discovered it's in an odd location. It's in the middle of a neighborhood. House after house, then suddenly a coffee shop out of nowhere. Inside, it's a cute comfortable environment. The walls were adorned with trinkets and there were a few couches around the room. The room really gave off a baby blue vibe. The main focus is the big island counter in the center. It serves as a coffee bar, so we took the last two seats at the end. It wasn't too crowded and wasn't too noisy. Coffee prices range from $150+. The history goes that, this shop was originally a movie set for the movie Taipei Exchanges (第36個故事). They loved the cafe so much, that they decided to keep it and turn it into a real business. Seeing as it was so popular and loved, we had to see what the reason was. We saw the movie poster on the wall of the cafe, so we decided to go home and rent the movie. I made some quick pesto pasta and we got comfortable on the couch and enjoyed our "dinner and a movie". To wrap this up, it turned out to be a great movie. Very clever and sweet. Probably more of a women's movie, but definitely something to pick up if you feel like watching a native Taiwanese movie.
