Exceptionally white coffeeshop just across from the gates of popular-with-foreigners tower blocks Hongtai Apartments. Coffees are mostly single origin filter jobs, but they'll make a cappuccino if you ask for it. Plenty of sockets, seating is mostly high stools with equally tall tables. No bathroom, but there's a public restroom out the door on the right. They've got a "Coffee Hero" promotion where coffee is 50% off between 8 and 10.30am on weekdays.
