去中正紀念堂看展覽，想說看之前去享用一下早午餐。就Google附近的早午餐店，看了網路上的照片后決定去【Cafe de Gear】。
I was planning to go to Chiang Kai-shek Memorial hall to check out an art exhibition. I thought that I would find and enjoy some brunch before the exhibition, so I google for brunch places nearby. After seeing pictures on the internet, I’ve decided on “Cafe de Gear”.
▲這是從【Cafe de Gear】的FB 上下載的路線圖，給大家參考。他們的店面真的蠻好找的！從捷運中正紀念堂3號出口出來後，步行約三分鐘就可以抵達。
Here is the map directly from Cafe de Gear’s facebook page. The cafe is really easy to find! It is only a 3 minutes walk from No.3 exit of the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall station
▲【Cafe de Gear】就位在十字路口上，非常的好找。第一眼看到我就喜歡上這家店，清新的外觀是我喜歡的樣子
Cafe de Gear is located at an intersection so it is quite easy to find. From the moment I rest my eyes upon the cafe, I already liked it due to its refreshing appearance.
▲【Cafe de Gear】是獨棟住宅的咖啡廳，推開老宅的大門，仿佛走過時光的隧道
Cafe de Gear is a cafe in a single residential building. When you push open the old house’s main gate, it is as if traveling back in time.
It was a nice day on the day we came, the warm sun shined through the windows and fill the cafe. It injected the old house with a positive energy. The white marble tabletop made the cafe to be simple and spacious.
Love the clean and bright environment, simple and elegant.
Any pictures taken here has a unique flavor to it.
The bathroom sign is quite cute: “Men to the left because women are always right”
▲【Cafe de Gear】也有單獨的座位空間
Cafe de Gear also has an isolated place
The counter has daily-made desserts
▲拿鐵咖啡 Latte NT150
【Cafe de Gear】的拿鐵咖啡牛奶和Espresso的比例調配的剛好，可以喝到牛奶的香味和咖啡的滑順。我喝拿鐵不喜歡加糖，不過店家有另外提供糖，給喜歡喝甜的客人享用
The Latte of Cafe de Gear has a perfect ratio of espresso and milk. You can taste the milk’s fragrance and the smoothness of the coffee. While I do not have the habit of adding sugar to my Latte, the cafe does provide sugar for those with a sweet tooth.
▲烏龍茶咖啡 Oolong Tea Coffee NT160
東方烏龍的韻 加上西方咖啡的醇， 顛覆傳統的層次， 挑逗熟悉的味蕾。
I saw someone on the internet recommended Cafe de Gear’s oolong tea coffee so I ordered one out of curiosity. I was shocked how fitting the oolong tea was with coffee!
Completely diverting from the traditional taste, the fusion between Eastern Oolong Tea and Western Coffee provides a new shock to your taste buds.
The oolong tea coffee has a unique taste. You first feel the smoothness of the coffee and then followed by the familiar oolong tea’s fragrance.
It is quite an experience to enjoy an oolong tea coffee at an old house.
▲卜派培根鹹派 Popeye Savory Bacon Pie NT 240
【Cafe de Gear】的輕食可搭配義式炒洋菇 /百香優格沙拉/和風沙拉三選一，加點飲料折抵50元。
At cafe de Gear, you have the choice between Italian grilled mushrooms, passion yogurt salad, Japanese-style salad to go along with brunch dishes. Ordering drinks with a brunch dish will be discounted 50NT.
The popeye savory bacon pie was baked until crispy. You can find mushrooms, bacon bits, tomatoes, sweet red peppers, and spinach inside the pie.
The pie’s crust is full of butter’s fragrance. The filling has a similar texture to texture of a baked egg, very flavorful and creamy.
The passion fruit yogurt salad I have chosen is very refreshing.
The passion fruit’s sourness neutralized some of the pie’s custard’s fragrance.
This combination made the dish not as heavy.
▲櫻桃鴨佐紅酒醋帕里尼 Red Wine Vinegar Cherry Duck Panini NT 250
For this meal, we went with the Italian grilled mushroom. Overall, the food is quite refreshing.
However, the panini is a bit disappointing. The Panini did not hold the inside very well which kind of reduce the unique texture of a panini.
The cherry duck itself was pretty delicious though.
▲芒果甜塔 Mango Sweet Pie NT 130
Their daily hand-made sweet-pie has various different flavors. Today we have chosen mango sweet pie, the sweet pie isn’t too sweet and doesn’t get too heavy.
A refreshing dessert. The giraffe made with powder sugar on the side is very cute.
喜歡【Cafe de Gear】這間充滿老古董傢飾的迷人咖啡廳，整個環境靜謐典雅。餐點方面，今天的烏龍茶咖啡深得我心，東方烏龍的韻 加上西方咖啡的醇， 顛覆傳統的層次， 挑逗熟悉的味蕾。烏龍茶咖啡口感獨特，一入口先是咖啡的滑順，而後隨之的是烏龍茶的芳香。在這老宅內享受一杯烏龍茶咖啡，別有韻味。卜派培根鹹派表現也可圈可點，塔皮烤的酥脆，裡面有野菇、培根丁、番茄、甜椒、碎菠菜等；塔皮充滿奶油的香氣，裡面的餡料類似烘蛋的口感，味道香濃。【Cafe de Gear】又是一間我默默收入到再訪名單的咖啡廳。
