Why Caffe Libero is special ?
Caffe Libero (咖啡小自由) has become one of the hottest hangout spots in the capital, and for good reason. Renovated from a 40-year-old mansion, the establishment attempts to revive the building’s past glory by keeping its original Taiwan zelkova flooring, marble walls and engraved wood door and spicing up the space with vintage furnishing and embellishments.
The 50-ping (one ping equals 3.3m2) Caffe Libero is divided into three sections. Visitors will first be greeted by a cafe that offers a solid selection of brews made from an old manual, lever-operated espresso machine. House specialties include hot coffee with whisky (NT$250), iced coffee with Prucia plum liqueur (NT$250) and espresso corretto (NT$230)

Tips for you
The lounge in the back serves a variety of whiskeys from Japan and Scotland priced between NT$280 and NT$1,200 per glass. Located between the cafe and whiskey lounge, Le Petit Patissier (chefleslie.pixnet.net/blog) is a bakery within Caffe Libero that boasts a pleasing selection of pastries and sweets.Drink
Great place to enjoy a coffee on their terrace or if it gets too cold, inside with great atmosphere. Try the Grappa with Milktea if you are feeling adventurous, great balanced drink and not too strong
“Good atmosphere, but menu could be better” The front part of the shop has a couple of tables and seats around the espresso bar. In the rear there's a bar with something of a Taisho-era Japan feel. It's all done quite well. We ordered a glass of wine, a double espresso and a homemade cookie. The glass of wine was pretty decent, although small. Unfortunately, the coffee was not very hot (had probably just been poured into a cold cup), so that was a bit disappointing. The cookie was nothing special ... Fast wifi and cute staff bring the overall rating up to four!
