Good coffee / cafes in the South

I simply hope these shops can survive.

I just heard this morning from my Kaoshuing co worker the biggest city night market will close down forever. If true , this is sad news (even though I seldom go there). Seems part COVID19 and just younger people no going there and places like cafes.

Which one? Is it one of those that set up only 1 a week in a certain place?

I heard Reifong. (I started a new topic)

Have you been there recently? I wanted bring home some snacks and was not sure they are open? (Trying to support local shops)

Google maps claims they are open. There’s a phone number there too, so I’d say just call them!

They are open for takeout and delivery.

Cafes, like bars/pubs, have always served that function in all countries. When people talk about “coffee culture” anywhere they are talking about the culture of cafes. There’s not much culture involved when I make my own coffee at home by myself.

What are coffee cafes? Are they like pizza pizzerias? Laundry laundromats? Baked good bakeries?

I imagine there should be an implied slash between the terms to keep the topic open.

If it makes you feel happy, I’ll add one right now. :slight_smile:

It should be coffee cafes is what I wanted. ㄇ If I wanted cafe about Japanese food would not be about Japanese food topic and this I wanted be about coffee?

Coffee cafe is redundant. They are the same word in different languages. A cafe is a place where you get coffee. A Japanese restaurant is not a cafe at all, unless it’s primarily a coffee shop that also happens to serve Japanese food.

It does make sense with the slash added, though.
